Whether you are looking for a place offering natural comfort from bustling city life, or a wildlife holiday in Madhya Pradesh, consider staying at an eco-luxe lodge. Offering the right mix of luxury, adventure, and wildlife experiences, Kanha Earth Lodge, Kanha National Park, located in a village in a 16-acre natural forest on the fringe of Kanha Tiger Reserve, consists of twelve cottages.
The eco-lodge, close to the Kanha National Park buffer zone, is built following the Gond architecture featuring large open verandas for unobstructed and clear views of the forests.
These eco-friendly, low-impact rooms are constructed using discarded wood and local stone. A lot of recycled and waste wood available locally is used to design several parts of the cottages and their furnishings, which is a perfect model of green construction. With no other accommodation facilities and thoroughfares nearby, the Kanha Earth Lodge provides a perfect setting for a thoughtful time of feeling rejuvenated.
