Satpura national park will always be special, a fairly new national park in Central India it has the advantage of a varied landscape with the Tawa reservoir fed by the two rivers – Sonbhadra and Denwa, rocky hills with a diverse vegetation, many water holes and a land where the rivers create interesting habitats. Fairly new in the circuit connecting Tadoba and Pench and Kanha, Satpura has many firsts thanks to the initiatives of the early settlers one of whom is Reni Pani. The park experinces are varied, like walking and canoeing which allows for better wildlife engagements, and with the focus off the tiger the lodges always focus on the jungle in its entirety and thinges on the knowledge and the articulation of the naturalits. Many of the initial park naturalists were trained under the watchful eyes of the experts, and that makes a big difference to the quality of the wildlife experience in Satpura.
Today, Satpura especially by the riverside and close to the village of Madhai is teeming with a collection of lodges and a thriving village, the result of tourist invasion. Reni Pani a short drive from the Tawa Reservoir in its own space, out in the jungles stands in splendid isolation. Situated across the main entry into the national park is this elegant lodge focused on the wildlife experience. Stylish and spacious cottages, 12 of them are distributed in the varied landscape featuring grass lands, a seasonal nulla and a hearty tree cover , all designed to match the surrounding it is set within. The abundance of Reni trees ( a kind of berry found in this region ) allows a great variety of animals, insects, reptiles and birds to flourish. The central Gol Ghar is the cheerful central area which houses the lounge, library, bar and dining. Run with a discerning eye for hospitality and service, with a great emphasis on the activities that allows you to explore the Satpura Jungle.
Aly Rashid - the lodge manager, an avid birder captains a team of naturalists who are constantly trained under his supervision. The wildlife expereince at Reni Pani is a pre-desgined ( depending on what is being sightsed and the interests of the guests ) to include park insights thorugh walking where one can see smaller mammals, insects, touch and understand tree life and Satpura's interesting ecology; canoeing in the reservoir is best for birding, crocodiles and other animals that graze or bask on the banks of the generous river.
