Kanha Jungle Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We visited Kanha Jungle Lodge for 2 days just before Christmas 2013 and had a super time. It is such a lovely place, fits well into the countryside and has a staff dedicated to conservation. The waiting staff were fantastic as was the food, they were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. the safaris were well run with lots of information about all the animals and birds and the sighting of the tiger was the highlight as we spent about 10 minutes following it. The weather was cold in the mornings at about 5 degs so you need to take some warm clothing but blankets and a hot water bottle are provided for the morning game drives which certainly helps. Our only criticism was that the rooms had no heating available so were quite cold in the evenings and when you showered (we had a bit of a hiccup with the hot water in the shower but it was quickly resolved) so for that time of year some evening heating for the rooms would be welcome.
The flying squirrel was amazing.
We have been to India many times and visited Rathambore previously but if we were to return to any of the tiger sanctuaries then we would certainly choose the Jungle Lodge at Kanha

This is such a lovely place. The trees, the butterflies: so natural and such great friendly staff dedicated to conservation. Our driver, Vinod, tried his hardest to find us tigers an we got wonderful views. The Flying Squirrel was also a highlight every evening.
Hot water bottles were also comforting!

We banked heavily on trip advisor remarks on Kanha Jungle Lodge and we were right !!! It was a rare occasion where our expectations were exceeded by far. Our gang of ten have been travelling for years together in India and abroad . Rarely we were treated as lavishly as here. Jai was already a celebrity naturalist and we got a first hand taste. The surprise was not only Jai , there were several more like Varun and Nilesh and everyone was excellent. Small gestures like reception at the gate , hot towels, extraordinary food , waiting for nocturnal Flying squirrels in the evening with bated breath ... the time flew like never before. The only small disappointment was not sighting the tigers, but what we experienced was enormous. We have every desire to go back ASAP . Thanks all the staff of Kanha Jungle Lodge for arguably the best Hoilday we had for years

Room Tip: Any room is OK during winters , otherwise opt for the A/c rooms

I have been to quite a few resorts around Kanha and this was, by far, my best experience. Everything was amazing: food, rooms, nature walk, but the best part of KJL is their helpful, friendly and genuinely warm staff. This was hospitality at its best. Surreal. Thanks to Varun, Nilesh, Dimple, Tarun and Jai. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kanha national park.

We visited kanha just before Christmas. We were 2 families we had 3 rooms 17,18, 14. We arrived late in the evening after surviving the excruciating last 40 kms from Jabalpur to Kanha so we were visibly tired. We were greeted by the 2 naturalists Nilesh and Varun and a bunch of hot towels to freshen up a little bit there were also snacks and various types teas available for us to sip and relax. We were straight away shown our rooms which were very clean and spacious. At night there were hot water bottles placed on the bed to warm it up as it was very chilly. The food served to us was refreshingly different and amazing to taste being avid travellers we have been to many places in India but have found the food at most places fairly standard such was not the case here the food was well above par and was a very diverse selection. If the food was good the hospitality was even better Nilesh explained to us our trip itinerary which they had personally designed for us and Varun was our naturalist who went with us on our 2 safaris we were unlucky to not spot a tiger but that didn't matter much because the jungle experience was simply amazing. Varun had a hawkeye as he spotted lizards and owls in split second while driving. Finally I have to mention Jai the young budding naturalist it was amazing to see such a young fellow with so much knowledge and such love for nature. Our only regret was that our duration of stay was too short. We hope to plan another trip to Kanha and stay the Kanha Jungle Lodge and just enjoy the place believe me they really spoil you.

Thank You everyone at kanha jungle lodge
We hope to see you again.

A lovely lodge with very comfortable room with a massive bed. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was good to see in Jai that youngsters being encouraged in both nature and friendly service approach. The hot water bottles for those cold early morning starts on the game drives was a lovely touch. The food was good and I especially enjoyed the welcome back from the afternoon drive with the tea and snacks.
