Forsyth Lodge, Satpura is a stylish and an environmentally friendly lodge that is engaged with the park management and the local community in a pioneering effort to create an unprecedented jungle experience in one of the most exciting tiger habitats in the world. This is an effort to create an exceptional wilderness experience for those who truly revel in wild places far from the jeep borne hordes that have defaced so many other parks. Here we provide you with an opportunity to explore the jungle on foot, by canoes, jeeps and motorized boats. You can also experience the nocturnal creatures that the jungles reveal by sitting in our machaan which is set in the 44 acres of wilderness around the lodge. We have also been awarded the highest PUG rating for our outstanding environment friendly operations by Tour Operators For Tigers, TOFT.

Loved the overall experience and vibe of the place. Food was excellent, facilities are good and the Machaan rooms are excellent. Did not try the pool as we went during winters. Would definitely want to go back again! The naturalists were nice and knowledgeable.

What an amazing 3 nights my son and I had at the Forsyth Lodge! From the moment you arrive you are greeted with a refreshing drink and damp cloth to cool down. Team Forsyth are incredibly friendly and courteous. We were introduced to Sunil (apologies if I spelt your name wrong!) Who would look after us during our stay. He was a very knowledgeable naturalist and accompanied us on our core walk and jeep Safari. His enthusiasm for his job is very heart warming. So...the accommodation...and what beautiful accommodation it is too! A large, stylishly decorated bedroom, enormous shower with a huge round window, a patio and an extra 2 seating areas!!! Spoilt for choice. Rooms are very regularly cleaned and towels etc topped up. The food....delicious and VERY plentiful. Nepalese chef is amazing! Also gorgeous cocktails! Location..you are immersed into nature..perfect. So, that's the positives then. The negatives... absolutely none...can't think of a single one. Thank you Forsyth Lodge for an extremely memorable trip.....oh..and we saw a tiger and sloth bears!!

Lovely lodge near the entrance to Satpura NP. The rooms are spacious and lovely with very nice outdoor patio. The team are all lovely, friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious. We had some great sightings with our naturalist/guide Ghouse. We saw sloth bears and a beautiful tiger. We enjoyed the range of activities- the canoe across the river as well as the walk.

I was there along with two friends. We took a Machan cottage that has an all-sides-open view into the thick foliage of the lovely 45 or so acre property. We didn't have initial plans for a safari but the general vibe of the property inspired us to look deeper. Special thanks to our naturalist, Mr. Sanal, who opened our eyes to stories unfolding within the flora and fauna that we couldn't have noticed without his assistance. The safari was excellent. Sighted leopards, wild hogs, foxes, but birds stole the show. Over all an excellent but a little pricey stay, but it makes sense when you get such friendly and efficient service deep in the jungle.

As my family and I stepped out of the car, we were greeted with broad, welcoming smiles by Team Forsyth. From that moment onward we experienced the most charming hospitality ever. Mr Nipun and Mr Banwari do an excellent job of managing operations at the Lodge. The property is perfectly showcased as the intrinsic boutique hotel where one can escape to time and again. The interiors are tastefully decorated with local art and ethnic designs. The cottages are rural structures, offering all modern amenities that made our stay comfortable and extremely pleasant. The sitout attached to the room was the refuge where we relaxed and bonded with nature. Beautiful! And did we look forward to mealtimes! The specially crafted menus by Chef Krishna ji were enjoyed by one and all. The delicious and tasteful offerings were comfort food for us. Perfectly served by the smiling staff, we savoured each and every morsel. Thank you Team Kitchen. Expert baker Buntoo deserves a special mention too. The banana bread is indeed his specialty. I was even surprised with an awesome birthday cake. Much appreciated. The safari arrangements were just impeccable. We had an exciting boat ride across river Denwa, admired the lush forest, enjoyed sightings of tigers and other wildlife and had many thrilling adventures. Our leader was livewire Amina who accompanied us on all our trips into the forest. Along went tasty refreshments, blankets, torches etc - so perfect were the preparations and eye for each and every detail. Thank you Amina! You introduced Satpura to us in your own special and incredible way. Back at the Lodge we enjoyed engrossing anecdotes and stories about wildlife while chatting with the knowledgeable Naturalists - Faiz, Sanal, Ghouse and of course our dear Amina. This passionate bunch of youngsters, with whom we became friends in no time, were undoubtedly amazing. Our trip was short, but very sweet. No request made was ever ignored, no assistance ever denied. Our stay was so magical and memorable. Can such an enthralling experience be fully described in a few words? Stunning Satpura, we will surely return soon.

An overnight trip to Satpura Tiger Reserve turned out to be a great experience thanks to the staff at Forsyth Lodge. A big thanks to Mohamed Ghouse, his team of naturalists Sanal Santosh, Aamina Ismail and to the entire staff for the unforgettable experience. This property is nestled in a wonderful jungle environment with aesthetically crafted rooms. The lodge is neat, clean and the food is mouthwatering. A big thanks to the Chef and to his team. I had the privileged to accompany the naturalists on a walk around the property. It is heartening to see young, very well informed people being a part of wildlife tourism. The icing on the cake was the breakfast for the morning safari into Madhai Zone and the great sighting we had. Keep up the good work. I will definitely recommend this place to people who genuinely care for our rich natural heritage and are fond of being in the lap of nature. A big shout out to all the people running the show at Forsyth Lodge. I am certainly coming back!

The Forsyth Lodge has given me some of the most peaceful moments of the getaway. The hospitality is impeccable and the rooms were soic and span. I was hosted by Gauss and the whole experience of the jungle safari was escalated by the immense knowledge this guy has. He has been a great companion and a promising naturalist for the future generations to come.
