‘Follow the PUG’ is just one part of the commitments we ask to help businesses drive their ‘triple bottom line’ – and succeed beyond their wildest dreams – and our mission of saving and supporting wilderness and its wildlife better.

Staying true to its name which in Sherpa means Protector of the Sacred Forest, Singinawa Jungle Lodge is helping to conserve Kanha’s ecosystem and promote its vibrant cultural traditions. Under new ownership, its lands have been doubled to 110 acres with close to 30,000 saplings planted under a new restoration drive guided by the lodge’s naturalists.
Cleverly inspired in design by the Kadu Kuruba hadis, the local tribal village homestead, this picturesque wilderness resort is bordered on two sides by the Kabini reservoir. It sets out to ensure a very comfortable stay for guests – never forgetting its setting within this beautiful yet fragile environment.
Emulating the longhouse style of its local Tahru neighbours and built from indigenous materials. the lodge is surrounded by idyllic Terai landscape, and has been setting high standards for safari goers to South Asia since the 1960’s, as well as being pioneers in their support for the local area and its wildlife.
