Kanha was ruled by the Rajput dynasties for centuries, declared a reserve forest in 1879, a National Park in 1955, and in 1973 became one of the first Tiger Reserves in India. Singinawa Jungle Lodge sits right beside this extraordinary stretch of wilderness, a jungle retreat as escapist as they come. There are just 18 rooms and cottages at Singinawa, all bordering miles of sun-dappled jungle rich in bird-song and wildlife, from tigers to jackals, wolves and deer. Daily late afternoon safaris immerse guests in timeless landscapes before a return to contemporary comforts.

In more detail

The spacious rooms and cottages at Singinawa might be rustic in design but are designed for relaxation in style. All feel secluded, looking out onto expansive views dotted with towering trees, with very modern en suites within traditional stone walls. The Jungle bungalows have private kitchens and dedicated butlers, while the main building is a magnet for all guests, with huge windows and equally huge views.

Trips into the surrounding ancient forest can be taken on foot, bicycle or open 4x4’s, with expert guides who know where best to catch a glimpse of a tiger or two, find a fox, spot a deer and know the songs of the 300 or so bird species that flit through the forests. Back at the lodge, there’s a riverside spa specialising in soothing Oriental treatments, and an immense and immensely tempting pool for time out under the sun.

Breakfast can be taken under trees during morning drives, and dinner is often a convivial campfire occasion in the bush. The lodge has an inspiring initiative that involves taking two children from the neighbouring village into the park – many of them have never had the chance to explore the wonders at the end of their track.
