Hi! Iâ€™m Jason, Travel with me to centre of India to experience wildlife at...
Kanha & Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge
In October I drove 4 hrs from Khajuraho to fourteen thatched twin-bedded cottages within walking distance of Bandhavgarh National Parkâ€™s main gate.
Jungle excursions are held at dawn and dusk accompanied by highy competent resident naturalists which lasts for 3-4 hours each. I spotted a Tigeress with a cub!
After the star gazing session and identifying some magnificent planets through the lodgeâ€™s telescope, we were entertained by local tribal people.
Drove for 4.5hrs from Bandhavgarh to Kanha to be greeted by a wonderful family of Tarun and Dimple who go an extra mile to make the stay comfortable and memorable.
I went on an elephant through thick bamboo forest, streams and meadows to spot tiger. I even learnt to make â€œrotiâ€? for myself in cookery class.
Last day of my trip, on this 11 acre estate I sipped my morning coffee with chirping of birds, a Langur monkey and even a few strolling spotted deer in my backyard.
Kailash Sankhala â€œTiger Man of Indiaâ€? 1925-1994, best known for his work in preserving tigers, and was involved in the formation of Project Tiger, a conservation programme set up in India in 1973 under the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
