Kanha Earth Lodge
Conservation Project
Narna, Madhya Pradesh, India
22.26674356, 80.48680043



Kanha Earth Lodge is tucked away in a small tribal hamlet bordering Kanha Tiger Reserve’s buffer zone in the Central Indian Highlands, with myriad and enriching forest experiences, that explore the finer nuances of wildlife, community living and sustainability. It is built in less than 5% of the 16 acres of natural forest that surrounds it. The lodge and its furniture is constructed and designed using local waste wood and recycled wood; a true reflection of impeccable standards in green architecture.

Inspired by the traditional Gond architecture, cottages have been meticulously designed using locally available materials such as mud plaster, stone, terracotta tiles, rough-hewn timber beams. The furniture has been delicately crafted using waste and recycled wood, thereby blending seamlessly with the natural forest setting.

Our eco-luxe lodge offers our guests twelve bungalows with spacious verandas that promise unhindered, stunning views.

Kanha Lodge offers a wealth of unique adventures in the wild through the core or buffer forests of the tiger reserve, including jeep safaris, sunset walks, bush dinners, birding walks, trails & cycling jaunts to witness the exotic flora and fauna unfold.  


Conservation & Community Highlights:

  1. Community Building by giving locals preference for employment & regularly training them
  2. Getting lodge supplies from the Local Vendors & Suppliers
  3. We have adopted the Narna village school and we also sponsor a teacher. We regularly support the school with stationary, books and other items, and also engage with the village for some humble development work.
  4. Removed all single-use plastic use from our accommodation and public area and are working towards making our lodge Carbon free by 2024
  5. Diverse environmental education and ecotourism activities


Future Aims:

  1. Tie up with local farmers for more local produce supplies
  2. More trainings in all departments to encourage locals to work
  3. Supporting local artisans & craftsmen
  4. More employment to women across varied roles
