KANHA NATIONAL PARK
A Day At Banjaar Tola Upon
arrival at Jabalpur or Nagpur, you will be warmly welcomed by your chauffeur and whisked away on an air conditioned journey by road to Banjaar Tola.
The Banjaar Tola team
will greet you at the lodge entrance with a refreshing drink. A butler will then escort you to your tented suite on the banks of the Banjaar River. Mouthwatering lunch platters
are served on the shady pool deck. After lunch, relax on the private veranda of your suite, watching jungle life pass by along the Banjaar River.
Later, at afternoon
tea, you will be introduced to your expert trained naturalist, who will give you a full orientation
of what to expect on your safari drives into the jungle. You will then depart on your afternoon drive in an open 4x4 safari vehicle through the sal and bamboo forests and grassy
clearings of Kanha. Witness the region's rich wildlife, including tiger, leopard, sloth bear, wolf, hyena and jackal, as well as the hardwater barasingha, nilgai, sambar, chital
and wild boar. Try your luck at spotting Kanha's ten Star Birds among the more than 200 bird species in the Park. Pause at sunset point to watch the sun sinking down over the
jungle and enjoy a thirst-quenching cocktail.
As you arrive back at the lodge after sunset, ice-cold signature cocktails are waiting to refresh you. Dinner may be served
on the spacious jungle deck or even in a surprise jungle setting. Savour delicious Indian cooking, including Haandi dishes served in earthenware pots. After dinner, indulge in
decadent desserts, served with tea, coffee or cognac. You will then be escorted back to your tented suite, where you will fall asleep listening to the sounds of the jungle drift
across the Banjaar River.
The next morning, your personal wake-up call will include the delivery of freshly squeezed orange juice, tea, coffee and homemade biscuits
delivered through the butler hatch for you to enjoy before departing on your morning jungle safari. After a morning filled with adventure, return to the lodge for a hearty
breakfast. Enjoy freshly squeezed fruit and/or vegetable juice, or get hooked on the traditional Indian lassis! The various platters are laden with toast, jams and marmalades,
chutneys, homemade muesli, fresh fruits and assorted cheese. Hot breakfasts are also prepared according to guests' preferences, with eggs and fresh breads. Or sample some
traditional Indian fare: parathas (homemade salted pancakes with potatoes, paneer and cauliflower), poha (flat saffron rice with fresh vegetables), kathi rolls (Indian style
wraps stuffed with chicken, lamb or vegetables) or pao bhaji (fresh bread rolls served with tomato and onion).
We hope you will leave Banjaar Tola well rested and already
planning your return visit!
