We were here as a part of Tiger Trails package with stays at their lodges at Panna, Kanha and Bandavgarh. We had planned this for our honeymoon and we had an amazing time. The rooms were simply awesome - spacious, hygienic with great decor! The food was even better - it was amazing to see how true they were to their idea of sustainability. We were impressed to get such great food every time in the middle of nowhere!! Their hospitality was such so great, the service was genuinely nice and courteous. All the safaris we had were great and the naturalists were knowledgeable and helpful. Since we were there on Valentine's day, my husband had asked for a surprise cake and they had done such a lovely cake for us! When we had a 3-hour drive to the airport, they very sweetly packed lunch for both of us at no extra cost! The whole experience was warm like a home-stay rather than an corporate safari. We are waiting for a chance to go there again!

Still as Good As Ever Still as Good As Ever

Revisited Ken River Lodge in Dec 2016, after my first visit in Dec 2012. The place is still amazing and the ambience is as good as ever. Still isolated, with all the peace and quiet of the world. River views from the restaurant are very good. Service and food will leave you very satisfied; and you have a chance of having the freshest fish that is possible! Very friendly and helpful staff. Great naturalists - Sheevendra Singh, Swami Raikar, Shukra Dai - expert and knowledgeable, and always eager to give you the best wildlife experience. This is an old lodge, dating back to the 90s, but still the huts are pretty well maintained. Bathrooms are clean and functional. Do not expect absolute top-end luxury; the place is a bit rustic and therein is its charm. The huts are better located and maintained than the cottages and should be the preferred ones to stay in. All of the huts are the same, so you can pick any. Birding inside the lodge area is very good - for those interested, please do set aside time for the same. Spotted almost 40+ species within the lodge grounds, without much effort - some notable ones being - Eurasian wryneck, ashy drongo, orange-headed ground thrush, grey-headed canary flycatcher, tawny-bellied and yellow-eyed babbler. Do go for a boating ride on the river around sunset - it is very nice, lots of birds to see, and can expect to have wonderful sightings of the Indian Eagle Owl. There is also a birding trail at the back side of the property nearer to where the cottages are, and a morning can easily be set aside to explore this. On this birding trail there is sometimes evidence of leopard movement at night; and while we were there at Ken River Lodge the movement had picked up, as clearly evidenced by the pugmarks we saw at many places within the sprawling lodge grounds, and the news of the leopard having picked up one of the local dogs - which was obvious, given the frantic and continuous barking that kept us awake well into one night! Inside the national park, we had a good tiger sighting, which is still a bit of an infrequent occurrence in this park, though, with some amount of luck, one should be able to manage a sighting within 3 or 4 safari drives. We saw sloth bear and a glimpse of leopard as well; and the birding within the park was pretty nice as expected. Another unique experience, and what should definitely be tried out, is an overnight stay at Jhinna Night Safari camp of Ken River Lodge - reviewed separately. Ken River Lodge, re-visited after four years, is still as good as ever

The staff was very solicitous the food was simple, tasty and could be tailored to taste and overall s good experience. The lodge and huts were simple, perhaps reflecting its remote location, but badly in need of refreshing. A fair summary would be simple yet adequate. The staff goes a long way to compensate.

All the right ingredients......but! All the right ingredients......but!

Located on the banks of the river, near one of the gates to the tiger reserve, lies this beautiful property . Not easy to find as the signage is modest to non existent and the belief is that people will come nonetheless. It is this attitude that obstructs change and the major part of the accommodation is run down and sparse.Given the location and the wild surroundings, something cosier would,in my opinion draw a much larger clientele. The food is sumptuous and simple, reasonably priced and the staff skimpy but efficient. All in All, a great place that is begging for some upgrade and a more open mind.

Demo Trip Need to stay in one of the huts as the cottages are essentially only fit for low budget campers.
