And what a perfect weekend it was. My partner and I are both jungle junkies. Since I hadn't been to Kanha before we decided to kick-off the year with a 4 day getaway to Kanha. A friend, who is also a brilliant naturalist recommended that we stay at Muba. And I am so glad we did. All weekend I felt like a queen.
We did three drives, a nature trail walk all within the four days with ample time to rest in between. But it was our stay at Muba that stole the show. The resort itself is well laid out and comes with all the comforts one would enjoy in the the midst of a jungle. However, it's the staff that truly inject the passion and love into this place. They're the A Team.
From the cook down to the the guy who drives the jeep, to the manager and the naturalist - everyone wants you to have a good time and a happy stay. We ate the most fantastic meals out in the open and on one particular night a romantic hideaway in a machchan with only the the star studded sky for company. Wasim (naturalist) and Kirti, both went out of their way to ensure we had the most perfect weekend in the jungle. Wasim accompanied us on the safaris and I saw my first tiger in the wild. With his knowledge of the jungle we saw not one but two tigers, numerous birds, deers, wild boars, gaurs etc. Every night was a special sit down evening of course the location changed every night too. Kirti is a talented chef and visionary who can talk to you about the jungle, cook you the most perfect BBQ and construct a machchaan too. It's no wonder that it's places like this that make a holiday not just 'great' but 'unforgettable'.
Needless to say, I'm definitely going back someday. So if you're planning a holiday to the jungles, please visit this most fantastic forest and look no further than Muba.
