The Activities

While the luxuries of your room might make you consider inactivity the perfect form of activity, 7 Tiges offers enough Spirit of the land temptations for you to step out of your comfort zone. So, whether it be interactive story telling sessions or the evening tribal dance; an early morning wildlife safari or visit to the local tribal village; sharing make-up secrets with a local Baiga beauty or an interaction with the resort team. The platter of activities is designed to draw you out, and help you become part of the rich and varied nature and culture of the land.
There is no dearth of things to do here.
Dunk into our swimming pool with its separate toddler's pool, hop into the activity centre to keep the kids enthralled, hear the gentle gurgles of river Banjaar, while you enjoy the special dinner or read a book on the banks, amidst the elucidating beauty of our resort in Kanha. Worth a special mention is Wood House, our large conference room with a capacity to seat 40 people, with its large projection screen, which doubles up as our wildlife film auditorium at night.

However, if one animal species were to represent Kanha, it would probably be the barasingha, or the swamp deer. The barasinghas at Kanha are unique, being the hard ground variety, which populate the large open tracts of grass amidst the forests of teak and bamboo. Twenty years ago, the barasingha was faced with extinction but some desperate measures including the fencing-off of some animals helped save them and again the air in Kanha bugle with their rutting calls.

The open meadows during the cold winter months are usually teeming with barasinghas and there is plenty of tiger activity around the fringes. A female with two small cubs would circle around at least two or three times during the day and the swamp deer would go berserk, their husky alarm calls ringing through the jungle. Far from being the cunning, smart aleck, portrayed in Disney's adaptation of the Jungle Book, the real "Sher Khan" is true blue-blooded royalty.
