Guided walking tours
1 - 2 hours
A walk through the thick forests of Satpura National Park to get unprecedented views of birds and the wildlife surrounding it.
There’s nothing more pure than to breathe in the rich and clean earthy smell of the forest with all the trees, damp and dried leaves on the ground. Our naturalist guides you on foot to take a closer view of the forest, complete with sal, bamboo and teak trees and get first-hand knowledge of the foliage that have provided thick cover to its inhabitants for several decades, even eras. Be assured to hear the sonorous bird calls, spotted deer, wild dogs and even sloth bears.

Satpura
Boat Safari
3 - 4 hours

To indulge in a humble boat ride along the Tewa lake to get closer to the water birds inhabiting Satpura

There’s nothing better than to be one with the river while gazing around to look at the forest. Think about it: on a late afternoon when your boat gently glides through the river that is surrounded by the Satpura National Park, and you watch the evening sunrays falling on the water, the effect is mystical. The designated guided boat ride is safe even as you spot, from a distance, a variety of water birds, Mugger crocodiles (on the shoreline) and a herd of deer that come to the waterfront to quench their thirst. Don’t forget to capture the moments in your camera. The reflective image of the herd of deer in the water is particularly fascinating for any photographer.
