Overview

Through the thick winter's mist emerges a shape which slowly transforms into the most aesthetically wondrous creation of nature. As the shape takes form and substance, you are left in bewilderment for its beauty and charisma makes you forget everything else. As the tiger fills all your senses with incomparable joy and as adrenaline flows merrily through your body, you know you have just enjoyed the most singular experience of seeing a tiger in Kanha's enchanting wilds. Your heart is one with Kanha's, forever.

What to expect?

The early morning's fog slowly lifts itself as the first rays of the winter sun make their way toward the ancient Sal jungle. The woods are alive with the sounds of a hundred different birds, flycatchers and minivets, bulbuls and prinias, bee-eaters and orioles. Their melodies echo through the forest as you make your way through this one-of-its-kind experience. The aroma of the slightly moist jungle elevates your senses to an altogether different high, for the smell of the forest has inspired a countless many romantics and poets. Kanha has you in its spell, the addiction has set in. 

Our expert team of naturalists, drivers and forest guides would constantly search for tell-tale signs of the tiger's whereabouts, and our knowledge of the jungle byways, individual tigers' habits and habitats, movements during the last safari would greatly increase your chances of seeing a tiger. While we keep all our six senses open to detect the tiger, we waste no time in educating you with all that we know of this fabled landscape. We shall try our luck with the sloth bears who feed on termites, the leopards who have mastered stealth and secrecy like no other Big Cat, the glorious Barasingha wandering the iconic meadows with joy and the myriad of other birds and mammals which inhabit this ultimate land of the wild. The 4 day experience would open your eyes to something new, something grand, something eternal.
