It also assumes that Kanker Palace, with its age-old and deep ties with the people of the region, and a heritage site itself, is well placed to serve as it intends to. Given the physical difficulties in accessing the interior, Kanker Palace, at a convenient distance from Raipur and its airport, as well as at one with the region itself, is ideally suited to be the base for and a “gateway” to the region.
Built in the first quarter of the last century, and rebuilt and set in a garden in 1937, Kanker Palace was earlier known as Radhanivas Bagicha. The residence of the British Agent during the Raj, it is now lived in by the Royal family. With its Colonial style architecture, the Palace is stately, elegant, and has an old world charm and ambience. Five suites in the right wing of the Palace have been developed to host guests. These have modern facilities, including Western style baths and toilets. On the whole, however, our attempt is to retain the earthy flavor of the region.
We have a set of itineraries for our tour of Kanker and Bastar. We organize tours in the tribal villages, forests, we also do boating safaris, angling in the most secluded part of rivers and back waters, jeep safaris to the wild life centuries and villages and much more. Modifications can be made to suit specific preferences. We could also design special packages on request.
Our policy, as far as possible, is to open a humane and sensitive window into the life of this region and its peoples, without disturbing it.
Looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship of co-operation with you.
