It's not "luxurious", but hey, it's in the middle of the forest, and it can certainly be classified as idyllic. Understated luxury at affordable pricing would be a good description. In mid-May, we had the place almost to ourselves, and were well looked after. The resident naturalists give great game drives into the park - and, unlike parks in Africa, the drives are long - 6 hours in the morning and 3 in the late afternoon. To avoid too many jeeps in one place, the park management specify which of 3 regions each drive takes place in - so, with different regions each time, over 2 days you get to see a lot of variety. There are 35,000 deer, so they're spotted without any problem, but only about 100 tigers - but we saw several, and understand that most people get lucky. We also saw bears, bison, monkeys and much else. It's uncrowded and a fabulous experience - you need 2 days and 3 nights to do it properly.
The lodge provides excellent food for lunch and dinner, and also sends a packed breakfast out with the morning game drive - it's quite impressive setting out breakfast with tablecloth and all at a dining hall in the middle of the park!
Everything about this lodge and Kanha park is to be recommended.More
