12 stone-cottages sit clustered within 200 acre of jungle camp, along clean and dancing Ken river, atop Vindhya hills and overlooking the sprawling tropical forests of Panna National Park. Panna is one of India's smaller but well-known National Park known for its wild cats, including leopard, tiger and other cat species. It is just 50 Kms from the thousand years old World Heritage erotic stone art of Khajuraho.
CampÆs 12 stone lodges, quaint rugged exteriors and well-furnished interiors offer a luxurious retreat in harmony with the local Panna architecture and design and the wilderness. Walls are made of dry-packed-big-stone-slabs and roofs of slates in their natural shape. The interiors are set in earth tones with a mix of chocolate linens, block-printed black silks, celadon cottons and cotton lace chandeliers. Each cottage has a private verandah with stunning views of the lush tropical forest below and nearby water hole. The central courtyard provides a cool retreat on hot afternoons.
