There are 2 entry gates to Kanha, namely, Kisli and Mukki.

In April 2008, I had the pleasure of staying at the Chitvan Jungle Lodge in Kanha National Park, Madhya Pradesh India. It was a difficult time for my family and I as we had witnessed a difficult time in Kenya following post-election violence. I have been visiting India for the last nine years and I conduct vulture research in the states of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. I have stayed before at the Tuli Tiger Resort near Kisli Gate but had heard some good comments from friends about this new lodge at Mukki Gate on the south-eastern part of Kanha National Park. Kanha is without a doubt one of the best places in India to see tigers and to appreciate the birdlife. One is taken back in time to the days of Rudyard Kipling. I visited Chitvan with my wife and my two boys aged 4 and 2 respectively so we were not really sure what to expect. My younger boy had already fallen ill with the heat and the fatty milk but when he saw the alluring pool at Chitvan he seemed miraculously cured. On arrival at Chitvan we were greeted with sincerity and smiles. We were shown to our room that was tastefully decorated and very pleasant. The architects and designers have obviously put in a lot of effort to combine luxury with a taste of rustic-ethno elegance. We were shown the organic gardens where the lodge grows its own wheat and other vegetables. The furniture in the main lobby area was fantastic. We sat down to eat and with two sugared up boys running around the place, the staff were extremely helpful and understanding. They cut slices of cucumber and carrots for the boys daily which kept them going and made a special menu for them of French fries and pieces of chicken without any spice. Evenings by the pool were sheer luxury as one sipped their beer with scrumptious bitings of spicy chicken tikka.
The jeep safaris into Kanha National Park were very well organized and the picnic breakfasts were to die for. On the final night, the manager organized a tribal dance and barbeque dinner that was scintillating to say the least. All in all, this is an amazing place in the heart of Mowgli country where tigers roam. It combines all the ingredients of luxury, elegance, warmth and most importantly is perhaps one of the most child friendly places I have ever been to (the other two being Tiger’s Den in Bandhavgarh and Dev Villas in Ranthambhore).
Thank you Chitvan for a memorable visit.

Hi Sharad,

We had a great time at Chitvan. Your team is excellent and took very good care of us. We wish we could have spent more time out there. Though were slightly unlucky in terms of spotting a tiger ourselves (not in Tiger Show- we did see a Male Tiger in the tiger show) but being at Chitvan made up for more than that.
Please convey my best regards to Aashwini, Manjay, Sanjay, Faiz and everyone else in the team. Attached are some photographs we clicked with the team and of the resort.
Your wildlife photographs in the resorts are really well taken, I was wondering if I can get a copy of some of those.
Regards
