4 independent bedrooms | 4 bathrooms | 8 guests

Welcome to the jungle! And to our much-awaited foray into the rich, mighty, and beautifully wild heart of India.

This is the story of a jungle homestay whose breezy verandah and surrounding Sal forests are probably as large as the collective repertoire of the ultra-warm couple that conceptualized, built and now operate it.

Sheema & Aniruddha apart from being life-long travelers, wildlife conservators, researchers, writers, and foodies are also stellar hosts who somehow manage to find the time to be attentive, warm and ever-enthusiastic.

Set along the fringes of the core-zone of Kanha Tiger Reserve and in the midst of 12 acres of forest + farm land, the living spaces are divided into two units. The main house with its super-high ceiling, open plan kitchen and never-ending book shelves has two spacious guest bedrooms.

Separated from the main house by a garden and a large lotus pond, there is also a mud-cottage with adjoining but independent, super airy and skylit guest bedrooms.

Ps- this sustainably run homestay does not have air-conditioning or televisions in the rooms.


This jungle homestay is divided into two sections separated by a man-made pond which is home to a host of lotus, frogs and lilies.
1. The hosts’ home with a large verandah, dining room, living area and 2 guest bedrooms on separate levels
2. A set of two mud-cottage rooms.


Aniruddha and Sheema are passionate cooks, and each meal has their personal stamp, and is customized according to the guests’ tastes. So, you will get a variety of cuisines, from homely desi to Italian, oriental and continental (their stuffed roast chicken is the star).
