The Museum of Life and Art at Singinawa
Oscar Wilde’s famous quote ‘Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life’ resonates across The Singhinawa Jungle Lodge where time, nature and the evolution of the human spirit seamlessly interweave a tapestry of wonderment at the Museum of Life and Art. Nestled congruously within the estate, the 1,000 square foot museum is an ode to the indigenous Gond and Baiga artisans and their labors of love. Mirroring the undulating curves of the forest, the museum is designed to host pieces of art that are placed in a fashion that allows the viewer to glide through a visual escapade without being bound by the realms of soporific and predictable patterns. An allegorical homage to the free spirit of nature, the museum will also host art installations in the open with a focus on the ethos of Kanha.

Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve is famed for its Jungle Safaris on Jeep and Elephant. We offer Bandhavgarh Jungle Safaris in 4 x 4 Open Suzuki Jeeps with front facing elevated seats. Morning safari is usually from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the evening safari is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., The Park permits entry only after sunrise and exit before sunset, so the timing tends to change with the season. In peak winters safaris start as late at 7:00 a.m and in summers as early as 5:00 a.m. Elephant safari in Bandhavgarh for joy rides for 1 hour and for half day can also be organized with the forest department.

On and among the trees in our five tree houses there is a route to hide away of fantasies. In the 21 acres area of land lies an option of experiencing the snug life inside the rooms or venture out in the tiger-infested wild. The property has its resident species of birds, reptiles and animals residing around the forest trees and over time the area has now become a small secure park for them. You can spend your time unseen and undisturbed in the intimacy of your room or choose to go looking for wild animals & birds in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve.
