The Flame of the Forest is a wonderful jungle retreat, built on the banks of a gorgeous stream, right in the middle of the jungle. We had prepared ourselves to rough it out during our 4 day sojourn but boy were we in for a "royal" surprise!! Right from the personal welcome when we arrived, Karan, Isa and the rest... More

This place was unique among the places we stayed recently. Kauran and his German wife Karen are attempting something very special. There are just four "cottages" and visitors gather round a fire in the evening for a drink before eating together. The food was excellent. Visits to the Kanha national park were with Kauran, who clearly has a good understanding... More

We travel to places, but it is people that make the difference. Just once in a while a combination of people and place happens that makes a real difference. This is one of those people/places. Karan and Isa are warm and friendly with ideals that encompass the highest possible quality of care for their guests and a real understanding of... More

From the moment we arrived with a warm welcome from Karan, his staff and the fruit bats, we had the most wonderful time here. Crossing over a wooden bridge to the reception area was like entering paradise. The view from the outside seating area overlooking the river was just sublime. Sitting around the fire pit with a sun-downer just doesn't... More

A bit different from the other lodges we stayed in due to its small size of only just four cottages. We thought the rooms were excellent (and always warm which is more than can be said about some other lodges). The location of the rooms overlooking the river is also very idyllic. The food was also extremely tasty. The naturalist... More

Well done to the team at Flame of the Forest. Absolutely loved it here. I think I left a bit of my soul here if not my heart which is why one week after coming home we have booked again to visit. The cottages are wonderful the food is outstanding and Karan and Isa are amazing. You won't find much... More

Myself and my partner have just returned from a two week holiday in the Parks of MP India. We stayed in three parks and 4 different accommodations. By a mile this was the very best of ALL of them. From the warm greeting from Karan and Isa upon our arrival (that friendliness set the tone for the whole of our... More

Its the best place to stay at kanha with cottages on the banks of banjar river Awesome food n very royal hospitality A little expensive but worth giving a try. With just 4 cottages privacy is never a problem. The package includes breakfast lunch dinner and packed breakfast in case you leave for an early morning safari.
