It was my first drive when I started from Nagpur for Chitvan Kanha when Sharad sir invited me. I took a different path to reach there. I went through Bhandara & not through Pench. Being a dark sky hunter, I was too much excited for the night stay. And when I touch Kanha, the breeze just symbolized me that I... More

Have to say that Rohit and his team did as much as they could to ensure we enjoyed our stay, to the extent that Rohit joined us on our two trips into Kanha and acted as our English speaking guide. As others have said the rooms are very spacious however we only had hot water one day out of the... More
