Kings Lodge and Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve

Kings Lodge is nestled between Sal forested hills of Bandhavgarh National Park in a large natural forested estate of 14 hectares in a small tribal village. Kings lodge is environmentally sensitive, harmonious with the natural features of the site and accentuates natural daylight to all facilities. Local knowledge and art has been incorporated in the development and the lodge has been constructed using local manpower. Our guests benefit from our incredible location, outstanding hospitality, an experienced naturalist team, our commitment towards conservation and local communities.
Bandhavgarh was established in 1968 as a National Park, and is spread over an area of 448 sq. kms. This national park was declared as a tiger reserve under Project Tiger in the year 1993. It is predominantly covered with vegetation like SAL, SALI, DHOBIN and has vast stretches of grasslands spread over 32 hills, the region though smaller than other wildlife parks has one of the highest density of tigers in the world

Pench Tree Lodge & Pench Tiger Reserve

Pench Tree Lodge is a unique boutique experience, set in one of the least explored areas of the Pench National Park. Located in the picturesque village of Sarahiri, the lodge offers its guests proximity to the Karmajhiri gate, and closer home, access to 16 hectares of private forested land to explore and observe the occasional wildlife at close quarters.
While at the lodge, the tastefully done up Tree Houses offer a serene slice of wildlife heaven, perched high up on a tree, surrounded by undisturbed rolling acres of jungle shrub and trees. The six tree houses are private cocoons and yet, are at an easy distance from the dining and recreational spaces. Pench National Park established in 1975 harbors one of the highest densities of prey animals, chased by an estimated 65 Tigers. The landscapes of scrublands, deciduous forest of Teaks and many lakes, streams and Pench River can be instantly associated with the incidents and wild mentions of the animal life in the jungle book of Sir Rudyard Kipling. Pench is popular for Tiger, Wild Dog, Indian Gaur, Jackal & Leopard besides many other mammals & birds.
