Silence where one can hear their own heartbeat is a rare opportunity. One that is possible wandering in Satpura Tiger Reserve in Bhopal. Situated in the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh, Satpura is a place that grows on you each day.A forest which is yet untouched by massive crowds, helps one to unwind amidst nature and soak it all in. What makes it all worthwhile is the stay at the Reni Pani Jungle Lodge right in the heart of the forest. Being an eco-friendly lodge it is impeccable in all its form. Compassionate service from the team, delicious food, cozy rooms that make you feel at home coupled with stunning view of the forest, the lodge welcomes you warmly. Don’t be surprised if you have deers as visitors outside your cottage. They add charm to one’s stay at Reni Pani.The park is well known for sighting of tigers, leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, civet cat and many species of birds. Jeep safaris cutting through the winds add to the rush of being in the jungle while the boat safaris make time stand still in the calm waters.Camping is another gem that add that extra dazzle to one’s stay at Rent Pani. At the banks of Denwa river, a short nature trail through the forest takes one to the camping site. The sunset is mesmerising and the experience unforgettable. The silent bank of the river, green fields, chilly winds and an open sky, this is what dreams are made of.While Satpura is the home to wildlife, Bhopal the city centre has some great sightseeing as well. One such place is the Bhimbhetka Caves. It is a UNSECO acknowledged World Heritage Site. It has earned that title by being home to a set of extraordinary cave paintings made by Man in prehistoric times. These paintings are made on some unusually shaped rock formations. Bhimbetka, when seen in its full perspective, makes for an awe-inspiring history told entirely in pictures.Satpura may not be the most famous reserve in India but what it offers is priceless. A visit here is an absolute must to know the secrets of the jungle while enjoying the hospitality of Reni Pani Jungle Lodge.

Most people know Satpura by its Hill station Panchmarhi. There is much more to it....Serene Sylvan Forests, Deep valleys, Rushing Rivulets.... all yet distant to tourists. Untouched, as it was made by Nature...!
A beautiful Tiger reserve on the banks of the river Denwa. I have visited this place 6 times in the past 6 months and will continue visiting in the future. It has all the three things at one place one could ask for i.e mountains, forest and backwaters. Wildlife is abundant to explore. Sighting of the sloth bear and leopard is common along with Indian Bison, Sambar Deer and Spotted Deer. It is also a bird watching paradise as you can easily spot many migratory birds like kingfisher, skimmer, hornbill and many more. You can opt for elephant safari or walking safari besides jeep safari. Walking safari gives you an enthralling feel when you spot a wild animal which is only a few meters away from you. Last but the best is canoeing in the calm and serene backwaters of Denwa. You can easily spot a crocodile as you do canoeing in the same water which is the habitat of crocodiles. I personally have seen crocodile from only a few meters distance.
