The short walk from the parking area to the reception treats you to a wide variety of butterflies and is just magical. You know this is going to be a really good lodge and a special place to stay. A warm reception from the staff, a briefing from Vinod and Vinay the naturalists and we are shown to our room. The cottage lodge room was occupied by Swedish royalty a couple of decades ago and is a beautiful room, with a delightful rear veranda and great air conditioning.
The food is very tasty and continental food is provided also. The staff are incredible, very attentive, efficient but without being intrusive.
The jeeps are very comfortable and have raised seats giving a clear view all around, instead of looking at the back of the drivers head or the roof.
The only thing we will point out is that as you wait to go into the parks, local people will approach your vehicle asking to get into the spare seats (obviously if your jeep is full this is not an issue). A polite but firm no is all that is needed.
The naturalist, Vinay has so much knowledge and really knows so much about the animals, flora and birds. He has a wonderful sense of humour and we had so much fun with him during our four safari drives.
We learned a great deal and laughed a great deal too. The breakfasts provided during the safaris are just awesome, so filling and a lovely hot cup of tea is very welcome also!
We saw Tigers on 3 of the 4 safaris we took and a Leopard also. We also saw two Wild Dogs and on our last safari, we stated that it was our hope to see Sloth Bears and could not believe it, when we saw two Sloth Bears coming to the water for an evening drink.
We were truly blessed to have seen so many animals during our visit, not to mention all the other animals and birds that we saw.
The lodge is conveniently located to the parks and we could not recommend the Kanha Jungle Lodge highly enough!

Room Tip: The two cottage rooms have rear private verandas whereas the other rooms have shared front verandas

Our family of four spent 3 nights in 3rd week of April, 2017 with booking by The Wild Source out of Denver. Beautiful, well appointed property with wonderful staff. Felt at home with home-style cooking. Vegetarian food was very good, not to forget freshly squeezed juices at the end of a long safari drive. Vinod, our naturalist, is very knowledgeable about the park! Kanha is one of the best kept parks in India. Two tiger sightings! Would love to visit again! Thanks for making our visit memorable!

Every little detail has been considered to make this a relaxed and comfortable place to stay. The family atmosphere and the hard working and engaging staff all made this into a very special place. The food was some of the best I have had in India.

The short walk from the parking area to the reception treats you to a wide variety of butterflies, and you already know this is going to be a really good experience! A warm reception from the naturalist owners Dimple and Tarun, and we are shown to our room, which was occupied by Swedish royalty a couple of decades ago. Beautiful Sal tree woods everywhere.
The son, Jai, the modern-day Mowgli with his deep passion for flora and fauna of all shapes and sizes, is an impressive walking encyclopaedia as he takes us for a walk by the Banjaar river.
The naturalist, Vinay, is also full of knowledge and wonderful stories, as he drives us into our safaris. He worked very hard to maximize each trip!
The food is simple, yet awesome. The staff is incredible... very very warm, extremely efficient and non-intrusive. Minute details are taken care of. World class stuff!
Can't wait to get back!

Lovely warm staff. The owners make you truly feel at home. Beautiful rooms, well serviced. The food served is incredible, wonderful knowledge about the surrounding areas including the tiger safaris (Why most people would come here). I felt truly welcome here and would love to go back!
