Kanha Earth Lodge, Pugdundee Safaris

Kanha Tiger Reserve

Madhya Pradesh

Kanha Earth Lodge is tucked into 16 acres of reforested lands, adjoining the buffer forests of Kanha. Lying close to a small quintessential village community and rich farmlands, it makes for a rich experiential stay. Away from the hurly burly of the Kanha-Kisli Gate, the lodge’s natural landscape attracts a multitude of mammals and colorful birds feasting on the old growth trees, all of which can be enjoyed in the company of top quality naturalists. Even so, it is only 30 minutes from the park gate, ensuring that it is close enough for easy access to the forest. The comfortable bungalow style and award winning buildings, nestled within this forest paradise, are inspired by Gond tribal architecture, while recycled, waste wood, terracotta tiles and local stone has been used for construction and furniture design. The lodge has a nature library-cum-presentation room and an Eco shop that... contributes 25% of its proceeds towards conservation activities
  • If you’re feeling adventurous, explore the outdoors through a jeep safari with the lodge naturalists, elephant safari, birding walk, nature trail or cycling. Guests can sight the rare hard ground barasingha found only in Kanha’s large grasslands, in addition to tigers, leopards, sloth bears, lesser cats and over 250 bird species. For a cultural experience, visit a local Gond tribal home and participate in a crafts workshop with Gond woodcarvers and local potters, or a painting workshop with Gond painters. You could also visit the Friday weekly market to shop for local produce and souvenirs. For the guests who want to relax, there is an infinity pool, which is set between Mahua trees and its infinity edges merge into Kanha’s forests.
  • The lodge offers 12 air-conditioned luxury bungalows with en-suite bathrooms, dressing room and large open verandas with forest views. The bungalows are designed to merge into the the landscape yet provide all comforts for a luxurious stay like 24-hour power back up, 24-hour hot water facilities, complimentary organic toiletries and bathroom essentials and a tea and coffee pantry offering a choice of select brews. The lodge refrains from directing jungles to create landscapes and has its resident birds and mammals that have been happily coexisting since the foundation, thus providing guests with a true wilderness experience.

Stopping your vehicle beside one of the large golden grass meadows with the sunbeams angled by the tall sal forest behind you; a morning mist and the unseen crack of horns from a pair of barasingha stags clashing and you might well be reminded of Mowgli’s forests made famous by Rudyard Kipling. 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>>
