We arrived as strangers not knowing what to expect; we left after 4 days as part of a family. Karan, Isa and Mohan, along with the other staff, were amazing. We were totally looked after without it being 'over the top'. The knowledge which Karan and Mohan brought to the safari drives was incredible. They were nature lovers not just...

This was our second visit to Flame of the forest and it was as good as the first.its a small lodge that feels like home. Everyone is made to feel really welcome which is a special experience. Kanha is a very unique place and so is Flame of the forest.

This is a late review from our 3 nights in November. We were blown away by the excellent service from the Flame team and Mohan the safari guide made the stay so special. The food, rooms, location were just perfect this place is special if visiting Kanha it would be a big loss not to experience this beautiful lodge.

The hotel only has 4 superb river side cottages and the constant personal touch from the owners (Karan and Isa) is constant and brilliant. The meals were so well done (we were even served a dinner outside our cottage as a surprise one evening. Porridge and coffee are served before the early morning safari trips and a welcoming G&T always...

This incredible place delivers so much more than the tiger sightings and other animal joys. Our stay at Christmas 2016 brought my son and me an epiphany of experiences, the result of amazing attention to detail in caring for guests. The staff, service, and accommodations could not be more soulful or exquisite. This was a real treat for us and...

We spent 3 amazing nights at Flame of the Forest Lodge and it was an absolute highlight of our trip. Karan Modi and his wife Isa have created a very special destination and they have an incredible team working with them. We were lucky enough to have Imran as our Naturalist and he was exceptional – not just his knowledge...

We went to the Lodge after three days at the Samode Safari Lodge, proper five star but clinical. The Flame is in a rural setting on the river side.A fabulous welcome and introduction to the lodge. The build is based on a local farm building style and was built by local labour and using local materials the whole thing reeks...

When we arrived after a long drive from Pench all the staff were waiting at the front of the lodge to greet us and they had cold towels and a welcome drink. The lodge has only four cottages and ours was number one closest to the main area. The room had a spacious sleeping area with a king sized bed...

We stayed there in March. Cottages are clean, spacious, and well furnished. Food was good. The naturalist was knowledgeable. The tiger viewing was good. Atmosphere is relaxing and quiet. Owners were not present when we were there but Jenny did a fine job of pinch hitting for them. Highly recommend Flame of the Forest.
