An eco-focused walk around the wilds of Singinawa

This guided walk gives you a different perspective of the jungle…

By Deepankar Mukherjee
General Manager at Singinawa Jungle Lodge

I always like to tell people that no matter how many jeep drives you go on or how many tigers you want to see, you should definitely still take the time to do our eco-focused walk. This one-hour guided walk follows part of a nature trail covering around 58 acres of land in the forested buffer areas of the Kanha reserve and gives you a different perspective of the jungle.

Every aspect of our excursions are created by trained forest guides many of whom are born and bred locals and know every inch of the terrain. They understand every type of residential creature whether that’s tigers, sloth bears or sambar deer, as well as all the different parts of the park from the forested core to the wild outer perimeters.

An expert knowledge of the forest is imperative to these walks. The guides will explain and introduce you to the many practices designed to help conserve the land. And it’s beautiful. There are huge sal trees, prevalent to the area, that make up this moist deciduous forest. Then there’s the vast grasslands for which Kanha is famous where you may see barasingha deer grazing in the golden light. Treading through the jungle you might also spot chital deer, muntjac, foxes and some of the 150 species of birds whose natural habitat has been rigorously preserved.

Alfred & Deepankar Mukherjee

As a defence officer’s son, Deepanker spent his childhood in air force stations outside the cities, wandering jungles and exploring wildlife. This ignited a love for nature that later brought him back to the wilderness after spending 18 years in advertising. He spent five years managing a lodge in Satpura before travelling to Kanha in what he calls ‘a pursuit of happiness’. When he’s not striving to create the best guest experiences, you’ll find him chatting to the locals and the forest department about conservation or roaming the jungle photographing birds.
