Banjaar Tola, A Taj Safari

Kanha Tiger Reserve

Madhya Pradesh

Banjaar Tola is a plush jungle safari lodge situated on the banks of the Banjaar River. With its own unique identity celebrating the Bastar and Dogra art from nearby Chhattisgarh, it’s really a masterpiece in the contemporary use of canvas through all the living quarters, fine dining and glamorous leisure areas. With two elegant camps of nine suites, each with its own intimate tented sitting area, the luxurious en suite tents have been designed in a post-modern style with textiles designed with rich blockprinted Madhya Pradesh cottons and silks. Raw timber furniture, canvas wardrobes, leather detailing and handcrafted furniture made from fallen trees and driftwood give you a thoroughly upmarket camping feel.
