"Do not cut down the forest with its tigers and do not banish the tigers from the forest.
The tiger perishes without the forest, and the forest perishes without its tigers.
Therefore the tiger should stand guard over the forest and the forest should protect all its tigers".
Composed circa 400 BC

International Tour Operators Mission Statement
Tiger Resorts specializes in wildlife tourism and from our inception we have stationed resident naturalists at both properties- Kanha and Bandhavgarh. All our naturalists have 3-6 years in-depth field experience in Indian wildlife which covers a wide array of mammals and birds, plus a good knowledge of Flora. Having traveled extensively across the country, from the world heritage site of Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary at Bharatpur, the Gir forest (known for the Asiatic Lion) to Kaziranga (the last refuge for the One Horned Rhinoceros) and now to the forests of Central India�their experiences are varied. Their expertise lies in their ability to track tigers and spot exotic bird species. Guests will find that the naturalists always give it their best, to try and satisfy their specific demands. In addition, due to their diverse cultural backgrounds they give guests a unique perspective on Indian lifestyle and tradition. We have a village walk ( also includes a trip to the local school) in which the naturalists explain to the guests the way in which village folk go about their day to day work, giving the guests a first hand account of this simple, yet affective life.
Tiger Resorts also receives foreign students from different Universities around the world. These students join us for a season as Naturalist trainees, as part of their University curriculum.
We organise Nature walks in and around our Jungle Lodge, thru the forest, where you get to experience and see a variety of birdlife and insects as well as the occasional anthill... If you are lucky, down by the river, you may even get to see the elephants bathing in the afternoon and can participate in helping them take a bath.
Bird Watching: Large Number of Butterflies can be found in Kanha Jungle LodgeWe organize Bird-watching excursions around the Jungle Lodge, during the day, for those energetic clients who are interested in learning more about our birdlife.
Butterflies: Kanha is specially rich with its butterflies and a large number of them are found at Kanha Jungle Lodge. See the collection of Butterflies at the Lodge.
Astronomy: As the sun sets and a galaxy of stars covers the canopy, we take a short after dinner walk to begin our Star Gazing session. After a short introduction of Stars and constellations, you have an opportunity to see through our telescope the planets, so close, never seen before by most guests. You will all enjoy this exhilarating experience! Cookery Classes and Sari demonstrations are some of the other surprises in store for you at our lodge.
