We were first time visitors but Isabelle and Karan welcomed us as friends and made us feel at home from the minute we... More

As the car turned onto the driveway, we could see the owner Karan and staff waving and waiting to greet us with chilled cloths. Karan led the way over a wooden bridge through an airy bulding which held the dining and lounge areas.... More

The lodge is situated a few minutes drive from one of Kanha National Park gates. The 4 cottages and guest area overlook the Banja River. The water level was low whilst we were there but... More

Imagine you went to stay with your good friends in their house, a house that you had always thought was fantastic. That's what staying at Flame of the forest is like. Beautiful lodges, simply but elegantly furnished with style. Fantastic location, serenely quiet at all times and only a short drive to Kanha Park entrance. Food, we really liked this!... More
