2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
India's finest Wilderness Experience, Kanha Earth Lodge, is spread in 16 acres of natural forest, tucked away in a small hamlet bordering Kanha’s buffer zone. Its unique location, 30 minutes from the Khatia/Kisli park gate, ensures that it is close enough for easy access to the park, but still far enough from the glut of hotels lining Kanha’s tourist hub to offer guests a true wilderness experience. The 12 luxury bungalows with large open verandahs of this Wildife Resort in Kanha National Park have been inspired by Gond tribal architecture and offer environmentally sensitive, low-impact accommodation through their design and use of local stone and waste wood. While the absence of neighbouring lodges or highways creates an ideal setting for nature walks, birding and cycling trips through the surrounding forest.

Amazing experience at this resort. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and well maintained.They serviced the room twice a day. Loved the lobby area and spent a lot of time there. All things are locally and naturally sourced. They have a strict policy of no room services with regards to food. They screen a tiger documentary everyday in the evening which was a unique experience, while serving evening snacks. The sustainability efforts are highly appreciated and not a single plastic was used anywhere in the resort. The best part is the food. They serve all the local foods prepared locally- right from bread, ice cream, desserts. All the meals were excellent and the menu is amazing curated. Highly recommended.

The Kahna Earth Lodge is one of the most underrated places I have ever been to. Everything here is so well thought of - from the food, to the room (amazing coffee, balcony, bathrooms, etc), to the ambience. But the highlight has to be the people that manage the safaris and the property - the cook, the bartenders, the room service staff, the naturalist and the manager were all amazing. Everybody was a nature and animal lover and it seemed like they were truly happy to be there :) I honestly could not fault this place. We (4 friends) stayed for four nights and went on four safaris. We saw tigers on two of our safaris and many more rare mammals, birds and trees. I would recommend going for the morning safaris as the afternoons can get quite hot. Kudos to Mr. Harpeet, Mr. Negi, Ms. Mudgha and everyone else who made our trip so memorable. We will definitely be back.

Our second time at Kanha Earth Lodge and it felt like coming home to family. Manager Mr.Harpreet Singh goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is unforgettable. He is an incredible leader and role model for the staff. We had the good fortune of having Harpreet with us on safari and his knowledge and diligence was superb and we of course saw the tiger on our first safari. The meals, the evening shows, the safaris were all meticulously planned and the dinner by the pool with candles and bonfires was divine. Thank you Mr.Negi for your hospitality. Of all the luxury lodges we have been to around the world, Kanha Earth Lodge is one of the best! We will be back. Thank you Pugdundee.

Every detail was looked into. The hospitality was thoughtful. Harpreet Singh, the manager made every evening special. All meals were excellent. The naturalist Ashu Khan was an absolute delight to do the safaris with. Pugdundee always ensures a wonderful overall experience.

So me and my wife along with a couple friends went to stay at Kanha Earth Lodge. “Pugdundee? What is this place?” I said. And while leaving the property all I could say was “Bhai Abb bas Pugdundee hi rukna hai.” That’s the impact it has on you. It feels like an exclusive club just for you. Let’s start with the entry. The resort is inside the buffer zone and there is a shortcut via Tuli so we took that route. Once you enter the resort, there are multiple employees waiting for you to greet you with sanitizer, thermometer and warm hand towels and welcome drinks. They tell you the property details while checking you in. The room: Insanity!!! What a room. A villa with separate toilet and bathroom made purely of ecofriendly materials. The bedroom is lavish with a patio deck facing a jungle. Completely quiet and serene. Harpreet was too polite to help us out. Rooms are worth every penny! The food: lip smacking, finger licking good food. It had taste but no spice hurting your palate. The food variety was so much that we did not eat a similar dish again in our 2 day stay. Everything was served in a thali in view of covid and whatever was needed as a refill was served hot. All the dishes were better than the other. The hospitality: it was an honour to be treated like kings and queens and every one working there had some stories to tell. They were so sweet and kind and never said no to anything. Viju and Hari were so sweet. Mugdha was also very sweet. Every single employee was so sweet. All in all this is heaven on earth and I’ll be DEFINITELY coming back again!!!! Love you KEL!!
