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... More

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.

A special place to stay after along journey. Delightfully rural atmosphere with modern conveniences. Pre-dinner campfire under the stars was enjoyable. Enjoyed the rustic out door shower after a hot drive. Lunch served under a sprawling tree was delightful. Naturalist Imran was wonderful, knowledgeable and amusing. Breakfast served on the bonnet of the vehicle was perfect with Sandwiches, fruit, juice... More

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... More

One of the most wonderful places to stay... We loved it so much that we greedily added another day at this fabulous hotel. Thank you so much Karan, Mohan, Jenny and Imran. Delicious hot soups, individual fires, gorgeously done rooms, lunch spots..... Eagerly waiting for our next trip.

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... More

Its in a lovely quiet location alongside a river, well away from other tourists. The place is owned and run by Karan Modi who has a keen interest in conservation and wildlife. We had a wonderful...
