Jungle Lodges and
getaway resorts (Kanha is an ex-Jabalpur, ex-Raipur and ex-Nagpur getaway as
well) in Kanha are around Kisli and Mukki Gates. Kisli attracts guests with
a broader leisure travel profile looking for a wildlife experience along
with typical wildlifers. Mukki is little cut off and seem to attract only
wildlifers and kind of guests looking for exclusivity.
Kisli and Mukki
gates are more popular. Guests who are not getting a permit for Kisli and
Mukki ranges opt for Sarhi range, a newly opened park range.
- Jeep Safaris are arranged by the jungle lodges (Morning and Afternoon
safaris - 3-4 hours each). Elephant back tiger tracking (Popularly known
as the Tiger Show) could be available on some of the days but cant be
pre-booked. Some Tigers are tracked and when they are resting, guests are
taken upclose on an elephant back (10-15 minute per batch of guest, 4 per
elephant). Jeep safaris booking in advance is a must to avoid disappointment
later especially during high season.
