When we arrived after a long drive from Pench all the staff were waiting at the front of the lodge to greet us and they had cold towels and a welcome drink. The lodge has only four cottages and ours was number one closest to the main area. The room had a spacious sleeping area with a king sized bed...

We stayed there in March. Cottages are clean, spacious, and well furnished. Food was good. The naturalist was knowledgeable. The tiger viewing was good. Atmosphere is relaxing and quiet. Owners were not present when we were there but Jenny did a fine job of pinch hitting for them. Highly recommend Flame of the Forest.

Beautiful location, really comfortable accommodation, easy going atmosphere, delicious food and very welcoming owners and staff. The naturalist driver guides take you from the lodge to drive around Kanha National Park - they are filled with knowledge and enthusiasm and determined to show you as much wildlife as possible. Returning to the lodge after a tiring drive was always enjoyable...

I can't stop raving about this place. Frankly, I was a bit apprehensive initially about staying here as I had gathered from the reviews of previous guests that this lodge catered mostly to non-Indian nationals. However, the moment we turned off the road and drove into the gate, all my apprehensions were put to rest with the wonderful welcome from...
