Panna National Park, India
Get the best of both worlds with your stay in Pashan Garh, just 19 miles from Khajuraho, the world-famous site of 10th century Hindu stone temples and Panna National Park – home to the Bengal tiger and a variety of wildlife.
Enter a private jungle oasis as you step into Pashan Garh, an intimate lodge with 12 luxury stone cottages stretching out along a small stream. The lodge, situated seven miles from Panna National Park, has a distinct flavour. Unlike your usual woody or safari-inspired themes, the stone cottages, created with dry-packed stone, evoke a countryside charm while existing in harmony with its lush greenery. The overall stony architecture, complimented by white marble, leather furniture, and chocolate highlights, evoke a sense of calm for the busy urbanites.
Still not impressed? The private veranda, authentic Indian fare and discreet butler hatches take pampering to a whole new level.
Let the soft morning light shining through the intricate Indian shutters gently wake you from slumber before you start on your own safari adventure at the Panna National Park. Spot tigers, leopards, wolves and jackals, spot sloth bears in the rock escarpments and undisturbed vale, and point sambur, India’s largest deers, in wooded areas of the park. Away from the ferocious beasts, there is much delight in the breathe-taking views of the tropical teak forest and cascading waterfalls. The lodge is also in close proximity to one of India’s most well-known tourist attraction – Khajuraho – listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Note: The camp is closed from 1 July to 30 September annually.
