Each cottage boasts exceptional views; adorned with intimate artifacts and hand painted art, with everything any traveler could desire. Our fine dining is acclaimed - be it a boma-style meal under the stars at Chaugan; silver-service feasts at Bhaat Kholi; alfresco luncheons by the Wallow, or a fire-lit bar-be-cue at Leopard Rock. The anticipation of our Park Safari experiences are steered by our team of 5 highly experienced Naturalists, all committed jungle devotees, who know Kanha intimately. Singinawa’s new experience for 2015 – 2016’s season is the inauguration of the Kanha Museum of Life & Art.

I spent 5 nights days in Singinawa Jungle Lodge.
The cottages rooms are very spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and effective. The food is excellent and varied.
The afternoon of my arrival, I made a one walking tour with one of the naturalists of the lodge David Raju, who is one of the author of the excellent book entitled “Wild Wildlife of Central India: Photographic Field Guide.
At the end of the afternoon safari, you can attend interesting conferences given by the naturalist guides of the lodge on fauna in Kahna National Park.
We made morning and afternoon game drives during 3 days and full day safaris during 2 days with naturalist guide of the lodge. I recommend to choose full day safaris, because it allows to drive in all areas of Kahna National Park, which increases chances to observe tigers.
Finally, we also made 3 night safaris, allowing to see nocturnal animals in the buffer zone.
Altogether, I recommend to stay in Singinawa Jungle Lodge.

Looks like this property is our Go 2 place for an overdose of pampering and hospitality.....

Food - Service- multiple venues for meals, tea and drinks is 100/100

Ghanshyamji property incharge - more of a friend than a mere property manager!

I’m sure we will be back with another set of friends soon..

Love it ! MUST Go in a group 🐅😍👌👍

Everything about this place is great. The staff is very courteous, welcoming and very well informed. Pre book your safari ride. Group activities for all, particularly liked the pottery sessions. It's a sprawling property so it is advised to always be in groups and preferably with one of the ushers from the resort. Monkeys, deer and wild boar (occasionally) can be spotted in the resort, variety of birds (for the bird lovers).

The lodge's commitment to eco-friendly practices resonated well. Overall, a stay at Singinawa is a serene escape, devoid of unnecessary frills, where the focus is on appreciating the wilderness in a comfortable setting.

This was our first trip to India and we spent 3 nights at Singinawa Jungle Lodge. Our cottage in the grounds was just beautiful and so comfortable and it was wonderful waking up hearing all the birds singing.

What stands out is the staff at Singinawa, the manager and all the staff really do go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay and a special mention must go to all the chefs, they do a wonderful job in preparing delicious food. They overheard that it was our 46th wedding anniversary and surprised us with a delicious chocolate cake… this chef knows how to bake! His cakes are so light and I was also addicted to the wonderful buttery cookie biscuits.

Heading out each morning on safari it can be a bit chilly so the warm blankets and hot water bottles are very welcome. As soon as the sun comes up its lovely and warm to enjoy the beautiful breakfast that Singinawa has prepared.

We could not have had a better guide….Ratik Sharma was just so knowledgeable about all wildlife, not just in tracking the tigers but all animals, birds, bugs and beasties. He had an amazing knowledge also about all the trees and plants. We really couldn’t have had a better experience and Ratik showed us all the beauty of Kanha. He has a lovely calm personality and we enjoyed all the conversations we had with him. We have such special memories of our visit to Singinawa

We highly recommend Singinawa Jungle Lodge.

We recently stayed for 4 nights at Singinawa! Everything was simply perfect.

The property itself is stunning. But, the best part about Singinawa is the warmth and hospitality we received from every member of the staff / team. Their GM, Ghanshyam ji is fantastic and made us feel totally at home at Singinawa. He treated us like family and we absolutely loved it. The same is true about their wonderful naturalist Mr. Sachin! He was excellent throughout our 3 safaris with him and even outside the safaris. The Chef and his team went out of their way, and served up truly delightful food. Mr. Pankaj was always ready to help. The entire team was superb and made our stay wonderful.

The main lodge is stunning, with multiple dining areas. They have a delightful bar with a beautiful adjoining terrace... we did a bonfire dinner here and it was an incredible experience.

We booked Perch - their 4 bedroom bungalow with private dining anfd living area. This was gorgeous. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and extremely luxurious considering we were right in the forest.

The grounds of the property have retained the feel of the jungle, they have not tampered with nature at all... this makes the experience so fantastic. We felt really connected with nature and the forest at all times.

I will definitely be coming back to Singinawa again.

Our group of eight (8) friends recently had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic jungle lodge during our visit to Kanha National Park. From the minute that we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the staff and treated with attention to every detail during our staff at Singinawa Jungle Lodge. The main lodge is a beautiful building with a grand foyer, dining rooms and a fantastic outdoor sitting area with a fire pit. The building has many incredible paintings of the tigers in Kanha. The individual cottages are luxurious, spacious, and very clean. The food was excellent including the lunches packed each day for the safari. The staff is incredibly friendly, attentive and made our experience at Kanha a memorable experience. Mr. Deepankar, the GM, provides a personalized experience and we are forever grateful to him and the staff.

Our naturalist Akhilesh was an incredible addition to our Kanha experience. I have had many dozens of guides worldwide in my travels and I consider Akhi to be among the best. He is a wealth of knowledge about all things India, he put us on tigers, and most importantly he is kind, warm and extremely witty. We had a ton of fun with Akhi and extended an invitation for him to visit us at our homes in the USA if his travels ever take him to our country. He is our friend from India!

Singinawa Jungle Lodge is a must stay if you visit the Kanha area. This is an exceptional lodge that should not be missed.

Enjoy and safe travels….

We have experienced the best service in this jungle resort which is even better than the one that we experienced at Taj Bandhavgarh. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had gluten b free meals for some of the family and also no garlic ones. The food was delicious and service too good.
The resort is very aesthetically done and shows the taste of the owner.
In all a very satisfying and enjoyable experience . Will surely recommend to family and friends.
Would particularly praise Sunil the naturalist and Piyush for his utmost care and courteousness although all the staff is worth praise.

This was one of our most memorable stays in a hotel or a lodge. I cannot be sufficiently effusive in praising their arrangements and services. Truly outstanding! Our beds were made once in daytime and turned over for sleeping again at night. Excellent food. Great communication with friendly personnel at the front desk and also with the very knowledgeable naturalist. They responded to our request and arranged a local tribal music and dance show one night when we were there.
