Jamtara Wilderness Lodge

Jamtara consists of 12 luxury tents in a secluded glade near Pench National Park. The decor of the lodge harks back to the era of colonial safaris, with polished hardwood floors and hand-crafted wooden furniture.

The tents are spacious, light and airy, with an en-suite bathroom. All have private verandas facing the riverbed where you'll see a variety of wildlife. This is the perfect place to unwind between safaris. The lodge has an outdoor pool and sundeck, too. There's a large central, open-sided room with dining and sitting areas, though many meals are served outside. Sundowners are usually enjoyed around the fire pit by the large banyan tree.

The lodge is just a 2-minute drive from the entrance to Pench National Park, making it an ideal base for wildlife viewing. You can take drives in the park looking out for the many species of deer, jungle cat, leopard and, if lucky, tiger. You'll also have the opportunity to take guided walks in the vicinity of the lodge. The bird life is prolific. Jamtara village is nearby and guides are happy to accompany you on a visit, observing everyday life in a remote, rural community where life is governed by the changing seasons.

One of the features that makes Jamtara Lodge so special is the star beds. These have been set up in selected locations, where, on a high platform you'll find a comfy bed and basic bathroom facilities for your night beneath the stars. It's a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the bush environment, listening to the sounds of nature around you, safe in the knowledge that your guard is not far away.

Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

Lovely lodge with excellent food. Star Bed is a must do. We would suggest booking in advance as not much point in using it and then having to get up at 5 a.m. for a game drive. Game drives are fairly full on. 5.45-11.30 in the morning and 2.45-7.00 in the afternoon. Saw tigers twice but both from a distance.
