Madhai Forest Rest House in Satpura National Park is located on the bank of Tawa Reservoir & one needs to cross the reservoir by boat run by forest department to reach the FRH . Tourists can avail the boat ride (Rs 50 per head) to Madhai with guide only if they have the safari permit which is checked at the forest check post on the other bank of the reservoir.

Gypsies are available at the premises of Madhai Forest Rest House for doing safaris in Satpura, the largest national park of Madhya Pradesh. Here is a photo of FRH in a misty morning ..

Churna Forest Rest House (in Satpura National Park , MP ) is around 25 Kms away from Madhai. For a day trip to Churna zone one needs to book two safari permits (Morning & Evening safari on the same day). For a night stay either 3 safari permits ( morning, evening & next day's morning safari ) or 2 safari permits ( One evening safari & next day's morning safari) are to be booked. The rest house has a couple of rooms for tourists, each room can accommodate Max 3 persons. Gypsy and Guide are allotted after safari permits are checked at Madhai . Posting a few photos of Churna FRH -

Thanks for the very interesting posts of Satpura National Park. I'm keen to visit the park. May I expect some logistical tips for the trip ?

We went to Satpura via Pipariya. Only one direct train to Pipariya from Howrah ( Howrah Mumbai mail via Allahabad , that leaves Howrah at 10 pm ( daily ) & reaches Pipariya at 8.30 pm next day ). Madhai , the entrance to Satpura NP, is around 35 kms away from Pipariya & the gate opens around 6.30 am . So we stayed at a basic hotel near Pipariya railway station - Hotel Alka ( pH no : 07576224222 ) & started at 5 am next morning for Madhai. Hotel Alka has basic clean rooms ( AC/ non AC ) with attached toilet. Good option for one night stay. Room charge was ( 2 yrs ago) , Rs 400 for a non AC double. They run a veg restaurant too. It takes around an hour to reach Madhai from Pipariya. Booked the car from Mr. Mahesh ( 09424420005), a driver based out of Pachmarhi. Car charge was around Rs 1200 for one way for a drop off at Madhai . Same car picked up us from Madhai after 3 days. Many resorts of different budgets at Madhai. We stayed at Madhai FRH & and in Churna FRH ( Rs 2000 per night per room, max 3 persons allowed in one room ). So unable to comment on private resorts on the other side of the reservoir. We did 3 safaris in Churna Zone ( Gypsy charge for 3 safaris including one night stay at Churna was around 9000 Rs + 4500 Rs permit cost for 3 safaris ). Gypsy charge for one Safari in Madhai was around 2500 Rs + 1500 Rs permit cost. Guide charge Rs 300 per Safari.
