You know it’s real when every evening you can watch flying squirrels glide amongst the trees.

About your host

Naturalist and old timers Tarun and Dimple Bhati have run the Kanha Jungle lodge for over fifteen years, and are ably assited by their young son Jai, who is also a naturalist.

Our Recommendation

The lodge’s naturalists (or Tarun and Dimple’s young son Jai) take guests on walks and birding tours pointing out the many species found here and regaling them with anecdotes, interesting tid-bits and finding a large number of painted butterflies.
