We stayed in Muba at Mukki for 5 nights in Dec '12. Originally, we had booked the Mud-hut. But on arrival, we didn't like it. We found it too basic so we shifted to the Deluxe room.

Cons:
1. Food was simple but average taste-wise.
2. The last 1 km. to the resort is a dust road & is quite bumpy.

Pros:
1. Reasonably clean.
2. Hot water is from a boiler which is heated using wood from fallen branches. We never had a problem with hot water even at 5 in the morning when it was extremely cold outside.
3. It's constructed in tune with the environment.
4. Really warm, courteous & helpful staff.
5. Booking taxis from the hotel is more reasonable than outside.

Small Tip: We found the Mukki zone the best of the 3 (i.e. Mukki, Kisli & Kanha) for animal & bird sightings. (We did a safari in all 3 zones).

I recently visited with my family members (total - 5 members) at Kanha in Mukki gate. I have chosen to stay at Muba at Mukki resort at Kanha Mukki gate. I think I have done the most appropriate choice in chosing Muba as my destination. If you are at Kanha and you are not at Muba, then you are actually missing most of the charms. This resort is specifically blended with natures own glamour. It is added with the high gentleness and friendly behavior of the employees of Muba. I was amaged to see our attendant of our cottage (Surabh) always responding us with a BIG smile and is always on time to serve us at any point of time. Manager - Vijai is a wonderful person who is always there to look after all the needs that we had. It was wonderful to meet with Dr. Zafar (Owner of the Resort), Though I missed to walk along Dr. Zafar for a night trekking through the nature's trail of Muba Resort, but I promised him to come back on April 2013 to have it. The food served was hot and tasty. It satisfied all our test buds.
In a nutshell - I would like to come back to enjoy the tranquility of Muba Resort along with the Kanha forest.Thanks to all of the employees at Muba who are dedicated to make all guests happy and smile and create a home like environment

What else you can ask for:
- Hot food at 2:00 AM in a very very cold night since we reached late to the resort.
- None of the transportations were a sec late than asked for. Drivers were well behaved.
- All meals were served on time. They arranged for breakfast during the morning safari in the forest, also they give us packed food during our return journey.
- Food was delicious better than my wife can cook for me :).
- I could observed that every staff very highly motivated, They were queued to receive us at 2:00 AM on the first day.
- The ower was very friendly and was sharing his experiences, when the manager is effective; staff is having the influence.

We visited Muba resorts from 23 to 25th Dec 2012. It was a family outing with 4 adults and 2 kids. I must say that the ambience of the resort is absolutely amazing. The resort is located on the boundary of the core jungle area and every care is taken by the owner Mr. Khan to keep it as natural as possible. At the same time the resort rooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. We reached late in the evening on 23rd and had planned to leave the resort next day after our jungle safari. But hardly 10 mins after entering the resort, we extended our stay seeing the natural beauty. The dinner that night was absolutely sumptuous. Also, the kitchen staff lead by Ms. Archana took utmost care that the food is served hot to the entire tourists, being the winter season. It was a very thoughtful gesture of them. The resort arranged a safari vehicle for us which was quite comfortable. Our jeep guide Mr. Bhimsen Patil is a very knowledgeable person and has numerous experience of safari in the all the jungles in the khana corridor right from Tadoba to Pench to Kanha. Infact, we noticed that he has more experience in spotting animals than the official forest department guide who accompanied us on the safari. We had booking for Mukki gate pass for morning safari. We did not see the tiger. However, we enjoyed the safari as the jungle is extremely beautiful. We spent the rest of the day in the resort and enjoyed the nature. In the evening, we met Mr. Khan the resort owner and the other management staff over a cup of tea and realized that they have a vast wild life experience. The experiences they shared were very interesting and informative. Although Mr. Khan was a little unwell, he still promised to take us for a night trek on the natural trail along the border of the jungle inside the resort. We started the trekaround 8:30PM with Mr. Khan, Mr. Bhimsen and other staff. They were telling us how tigers have often started trespassing in their property in search of a "easy" catch. They showed us a couple of spots along the trail from where tigers possibly enter the property. We were hardly walked 600-700 meters on the trail and we noticed fresh pug marks of a male tiger. The tiger had once again trespassed in the property and was near somewhere as per them. Mr. Khan immediately took as back to the main resort area as he felt there is no point in taking risk in the night with us tourist with him. I still remember his words, “We are in his (tigers) area, and we better give him space". He immediately alerted other tourist and the staff in the resort about the incidence and asked everyone to stop playing any music if they want to enjoy being near to the tiger or possibly see it. They took utmost care that night that the resort staff was accompanying tourists to their rooms if the rooms were away from the main resort building. After that we had a nice time talking about this incidence and others shared by Mr. Khan and Mr. Bhimsen near the bonfire area. Overall, staying @ Muba was a very enjoyable and memorable experience for us. I would definitely return back and recommended this resort to others.

We are a group of 8 and one infant, visited Muba on December 3rd-5th. We find it very enjoyable. First of all the place is excellent one with a fantastic environment. The staffs are very helpful and cooperative. My 2 year old child felt ill due to the long travel, but they cooperate us providing extra care. Manager, Mr. Vijay took good care of us. Can't forget fantastic experience of listening jungle experience from Mr. Bhimsen in the evening during bonfires. Ms. Archana who is the kitchen manager also shared her experiences. They are true jungle lovers. Food quality is great and also tasty. Wish to visit Muba again in future.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mud house and it's really great experience.

group of 6 with 6 safaris pre-booked by Muba Resorts Mr. Junaid Khan.
Mr. Khan and Mr. Vijay were most helpful in guiding us from Ahmedabad itself on various routes to take.
They arranged our Taxi pick up and Drop, Safaris etc in a complete package.
Night one:- we thought we could stay in the Mud Rooms but unfortunately the Mud rooms are relatively old and not for the faint hearted like us.
On request we were changed to the delux rooms the next day.
everthing at Muba @ Mukki is natural and environmental.
Imagine 4 nights of No Cellphone service, No T.Vs, no contact with the outter world just the Jungle Sounds. Amazing.
And what Food by the Staff. Amazing. in all the 4 nights we stayed there, we Enjoyed each and every lunch and dinner to the fullest. Mind you if you are looking for a 12 course buffet with food getting cold on the buffet table, this is not your place. If you love freshly cooked food (even if there are only 2 or 3 cooked veggies) with hot chappatis, you are in for heaven at Muba. FYI none of us had any stomach problems all the days (which is a comman sign while travelling into remote regions).
So 5 Stars for the people at Muba, if visiting Kanha again i would not go anywhere else.
Had an amazing Jungle experience as this is the true Evergreen Forest.
However, we were also not luck enough to see a Tiger in any of our safaris.
Regarding Gates, we tried all the gates Mukki, Kisli, Kanha but were in vain. Kisli guides say that Kisli gate is the best while Mukki guides say that Mukki gate is the best. However, i found the Kisli gate to be better (maybe cos i had taken 4 safaris at the Mukki gate). Tiger siting is purely on Luck and we did not feel disappointed for a minute because we enjoyed a thorough jungle experience. hope this review is helpful to you.
If you are travelling from and to Jabalpur please check out a place which is 20 kms approx from Jabalpur "Bedaghat" it is most amazing i have been told. We missed it as had not planned it before. So want to pass on the favour to other travellers.
Please pack warm clothes beforehand as the morning and evening safaris are chilly.
