The luxurious 50-acre Ken River Lodge thrives on the theme of wildlife and luxury. They have culminated these two aspects very neatly and provide their guests with comfort and adventurous experiences. An interesting thing about this luxurious lodge is that it happened to be washed away during floods, twice! Once in 1992 and then again in 2005 but each time it was reconstructed with much care and love to preserve the ever-growing passion of wildlife.

It is located at a distance of about 3.3 km from Panna National Park, so you will enjoy plenty of jungle wildlife. But when you are inside the property, bask in the glorious luxury of it along with the tiny bit of wildlife Ken River Lodge has to offer. There are gorgeous views of the forested hills and the Ken River. They have a Machaan restaurant to enjoy food with a classic view of the river. Enjoy mesmerizing sunsets or sunrises!
