Covering an area of 940 sq km Kanha National Park was created in 1955 and is regarded as one of the most beautiful and well managed parks in India. It was the beauty of Kanha's sal and bamboo forests, rolling grasslands and streams of the Banjar River that inspired Kipling's timeless classic The Jungle Book.
Kanha National Park is home to a healthy population of tigers as well as over 200 species of birds and 22 species of mammals. Of the mammal species, the more common sightings are of langur monkey, the three-stripped palm squirrel, wild boar, blackbuck, barasingha, jackal, cheetah and sambar. The more rare sightings are of leopard, tiger, Indian fox, sloth bear, Indian porcupine, and striped Hyena.
Flame of the Forest
Nestled on the banks of the Banjar River the Flame of the Forest Safari Lodge offers absolute privacy with stunning views over the river and the surrounding jungle.
This intimate lodge has only 4 cottages, all en-suite with outdoor bath tubs, for those wishing to get that little bit closer to nature. An Ayurveda spa and yoga teachers are also on-hand to help you totally relax.
Kanha Earth Lodge
Tucked away in a forested area of 16 acres adjoining the buffer zone of Kanha in a small tribal hamlet, the lodge is set in deep jungles away from the tourism hub of Kanha yet close enough for easy access to the park.
The lodge offers 12 beautiful open fronted bungalows with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning, built mainly with local stone, logs, baked tiles and tribal artifacts.
