Kanha Tiger Reserve
The day begins with a morning safari in the Kanha National Park’s core area in open 4WD vehicles. Guests are given a wholesome picnic breakfast. Lunch is usually served outdoors back at the Camp. In the afternoon, guests can go for another jungle drive or go bird watching, take a guided nature walk in the forests, retreat to a hammock with a book or – most popular of all – bathe Tara the elephant in the river. In the evening, it is time to relax in the Shamiana around a campfire with drinks and dinner, and listen to jungle calls. Other activities can include a visit to neighbouring villages, massages, volleyball, a candlelit outdoor dinner, and a tribal dance under the stars. Visits can be arranged to explore three little-known 17th century forts, and a hill-top village with tribal artists.

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.
