Although some "trek" to get there...especially from the nearest railway station, once there you can guarantee a warm welcome,great service/lodgings/food, many of the staff are well informed of the wild life in the area...and the safety of the client while "out on safari" is paramount. Great relaxation areas ...pool, library, veranda. If you want an excellent place to stay while...

After a very hectic two weeks visiting Rajasthan, it was wonderful to experience Forsyth Lodge's tranquility and beauty. Close to Satpura National Park the lodge is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the area. The accommodation is excellent, comfortable and spotlessly clean and the food delicious. One of the highlights culinary-wise was the meal cooked by local...

We are avid travellers and have visited a lot of forest lodges big and small in India as well as East Africa and South Africa etc. I have to say that Forsyth Lodge wins hands down as one of the best stays ever.

Hasten to Forsyth Lodge. Satpura National Park is utterly beautiful, especially the approach across the river. The naturalists led us through this magical landscape, revealing its secrets, showing us wonders. Even without the animals, the forest is enchanting. But we saw so many animals -- sloth bears, gaur, deer, boar, wild dogs, troops of langurs, giant squirrels. And leopards. Watching...

Dear Susan, Thank you so much for your lovely review, we couldn't have described Satpura better ourselves. It was really amazing to have you and Jeremy here and listening to your stories of the Muntjacs and you home. I wish your stay had been longer.

Forsyth is a lovely lodge and only a short distance from Satpura national park. We were there for a total of four days and got to see the park on foot, by jeep and boat. Each offered a different and unique way to see the jungle. The park is known for its leopards and sloth bears of which we saw...

I believe the lodge (and therefore management) has changed hands since many of these reviews were written. But rest assured, all the superlatives in earlier reviews still apply. Accommodation in the cottages is comfortable, although I was not in it long enough to take much advantage of my terrace overlooking wild grassland, or my upstairs balcony (let alone sleep up...

Forsyth Lodge is well located, near the entrance to Satpura National Park but away from other habitation, so that there is a real feeling of being in the “wild”. The Lodge itself is spacious and well equipped, as was the cottage in which we happily spent four nights. We love Indian food and a highlight was the meal cooked for...

Visited Forsyth Lodge in February 2016. Excellent service. Very good rooms. The manager Rishi and his wife Manasi take great care of guests. Naturalists are available to accompany guests to the Forest. Well maintained resort. Access is a bit difficult and no public transport available to the resort. Private taxis to reach resort are expensive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Forsyth's 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 canoe's, on elephant back, jeeps and motorised boats. You can also experience the nocturnal creatures that the jungles offer by sitting in our machaan which is set in the 45 acres of wilderness around the lodge. We have been ranked 2nd in the recent survey by Conde Nast traveller in the top 30 eco destinations in India and have also been awarded for our outstanding performance by TOFT. ... more   less
