We booked to spend 5 nights for our family Christmas here. We were meeting up with our son who lives in Australia and flew into Delhi from the uk. We travelled by train and we're met at Jabalpur station. We wanted somewhere with the space to relax together and share an adventure. Kipling camp surpassed all expectations. There are not enough superlatives to express how wonderful our Christmas holiday was here. And we saw 3 tigers on our 4th and last safari! But even if we had not seen a tiger: swimming with Tara the elephant, riding on Tiara, the tribal dancing, film evenings, excellent food, Christmas dinner, afternoon at the village market, and all the excellent conversations around the fires were more than enough to keep us occupied. Indeed Greg has returned to Nepal, postponing his flight back to Aus to 'make a difference' so inspired was he by his night time conversations with Barbara and Anne and the other guests. Charles and his team worked tirelessly to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you Belinda, Anne, Charles, Sam, Tom, all the staff and each and every guest we were privileged to share Christmas with. Christmas 2013 will be remembered forever!
