    About Resort

    Ken River Lodge made a humble start as one of the pioneers of wildlife tourism in the country. Driven by passion for wildlife and conservation, Shyamendra Singh, grandson of The Maharaja of Nagod, established the lodge in 1986. The lodge has been washed out twice in the floods of 1992 and 2005 but has been rebuilt with the same zeal and passion. The lodge is set in a forested estate of 50 acres and has been built with natural materials sourced mostly from neighboring villages and surrounding areas. The forested estate is home to many mammals, birds and reptiles.
    The lodge provides various accommodation options, including comfortable cottages and tents, allowing visitors to connect with nature while enjoying modern amenities. 8 village style air conditioned huts with attached modern bathrooms, dressing room and sit out. The huts are spread out in mixed jungle in undulating terrain, giving a jungle experience which few in the country can parallel. The huts are closer to the main public area of the lodge. 5 A/C Cottages with 2 bed room units with a large living room & a pantry in each. The cottage is an ideal choice for a family of 4-5 visiting the lodge. The cottages are spread in the forested estate and are a 5 -10 minute walk from the common area. It is an excellent destination for nature enthusiasts, wildlife photographers, and anyone looking to experience the beauty of the Indian wilderness.
