Chitvan Jungle Lodge

Kanha Tiger Reserve

Madhya Pradesh

Spread over fourteen verdant green acres, Chitvan Jungle Lodge is a comfortable safari lodge that blends into its surrounding forest and farmlands and has been interwoven empathetically with its Gond tribal village neighbours. A small water body provides an advantageous viewpoint for observing the area’s wealth of wildlife. Each sumptuous wood-bedecked suite is designed with an earth element in mind - water, earth and sky - with the decor reflecting the theme. Cycle through villages and farmlands or take a birding walk with a resident naturalist along the Banjaar River. There are over a hundred bird species and 40 butterfly species to spot within the grounds itself. You can also plant a sapling that will be maintained by the resort, take a bullock cart ride through local villages or try your hand at some organic farming - there’s never a dull moment at Chitvan.
  • Besides the standard jungle drives, the lodge arranges tribal dances, bullock cart rides, birding and nature walks and local market visits. A short cycling trip to the countryside, an Indian cooking demonstration and learning organic farming at the lodge’s farms are also popular activities enjoyed by guests of all ages.
  • Choose from the 10 Jal cottages or 4 Prithvi suites, which have a big saja tree in the centre of the block and comfortable and spacious rooms. The 4 Akash suites are located next to the organic farms and give you a captivating view of the Maikal Hills. The Mahasagar Suite is a large 2-bedroom suite with a living room and 4 private balconies to enjoy panoramic views. 
  • From grains and vegetables to milk products, all ingredients served here are organic and mostly harvested at the lodge or in neighbouring farms. A variety of Indian and Continental dishes are cooked to suit your preferences. You can try an Indian cooking demonstration, interact with the chef and learn about some of the delicacies from the kitchen. Having a sundowner at the bar is a perfect way to end your day here.

These lowland forests are a mixture of great sal hardwood trees, once heavily felled for railways sleepers and other mixed species of forest. It is interspersed with grassy meadows - the habitat Read more>>
