Our five day visit to the Chitvan Jungle Lodge was of exceptional quality. The hotel is on the edge of the Kanha National Park, just 10 minutes or so from the park entrance. The hotel is developed within a natural park like setting. Accommodation is excellent, as is the food, staff, vehicles, and game guides. The hotel also offers it's... More

Yes, we have been there again...the third time! We cannot keep away. Of course we go to Kanha to see tigers and wildlife generally, but a great part of our trip is to stay at the wonderful Chitvan Lodge. As with the Tiger's Den in Bandhavgarh, this is THE place to stay. The setting is stunning, the accommodation is great... More

Chitvan was a great experience for us. The best part for us was the extremely helpful and friendly staff, be it Amit (naturalist), Sanjay who we only briefly met (naturalist), Ajay (chief chef) or Mr Agarwal (General Manager). The stars, fireflies at night, stillness of the night, jungle environment and the attention we got during our stay was outstanding. My... More

I am trying to think of something negative to say.. Perhaps the fact that between wonderful tasty food and taking safaris back to back (which means you do not have time to exercise at all..) will make you gain a few kgs... I totally enjoyed my stay at Chitvan. Staff was really friendly and everything worked like clock work. Safaris... More

After a long and tiring journey, we arrived at Chitvan convinced that we had made the wrong choice - our safaris were from the gate that was 70 hard km from here. We were looking to get out from there. We snapped at the help and the naturalist. The property is nice, we have stayed in similar places before. They... More

We drove down from Jabalpur and almost lost our way a couple of times, but every time we called Chitvan, a polite and an endearing voice on the other side guided us back on the correct path. The astonishing part was when we arrived we forgot the journey entirely. The staff made us very comfortable and soon everyone in the... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience here.

The lodge is set in a remote corner of Kanha near the Mukki gate, very close to the core area. We had stayed in a suite and found the accommodation to be of top quality.

Chitvan lodge was more than just a jungle lodge and its a kind of experience that one must take time off from safaris to enjoy.

Chitvan is way in the interiors - “core” zone of Kanha. Its secluded and approximately 15 mins interesting drive from the main gate of the park.
