Set in the heart of Central India, this relaxing forest 24-room retreat is a gateway to Kipling’s famous forest, rolling hills and tribal villages. It is located just 15 minutes away by car from Mukki Gate in Kanha National Park, one of India’s largest tiger reserves. Guests can witness Indian wildlife firsthand with the lodge’s naturalists. The abundance of bird species also make it an ideal place to go bird watching. Besides wildlife, visitors will also have the opportunity to take a closer look into the life and culture of Central Asia’s indigenous tribes.

Your Host and The Team
“I am an ornithologist, so the Central Indian highlands has always attracted me with its diverse bird species. Away from major towns, this is an ideal area to see wildlife and experience the true beauty of nature. There are fireflies at night and because there are no electric lights for miles around, you can really see the night sky. It is magical.”
