My family stayed at Kipling Camp for three nights and four days in January 2016 - our second visit.
Ivan and the staff were very considerate of every need and took care to ensure our stay was memorable in every way. They succeeded. No tigers this time but plenty of others in the park were lucky enough. We loved spending time with Tara and the staff at Kipling. We will be back!

So great having you to stay, sorry about the rainy safari! Next time we'll find you a tiger if the sun comes out! A pleasure looking after your very well behaved children. Hope to see you soon. Ivan.

We have just spent 5 wonderful days at Kipling Camp. The accommodation was in cosy cabins, each one thoughtfully and individually designed by the camp's owner.
Hot showers and comfy beds are just what you need after a day of activities. The staff at Kipling camp go out of their way to make your stay special in everyway. Game drives are well organized with tea, coffee and hot chocolate before you set off, and a hearty breakfast during the drive. Lunch and dinner are cooked at the camp and we thoroughly enjoyed every meal. The highlight of our stay was meeting Tara the elephant. This 60 year old gentle giant enjoys nothing more than being washed in the river by the guests of Kipling camp. We were even lucky enough to ride on here. We cant recommend Kipling camp highly enough. WE LOVED IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Arrange for trips to the forest (pay in advance). Saw tigers. Bathed Tara the elephant. Excellent European food and bar. Went around Christmas, special decorated buffet lunch. Shouldn't roam around at night cos it's not a fenced in area and leopards can come in. Overall safe. Common dining place and meal times. Fireplace. Very cold in winter though.. the hot water bag in the bed sometimes isn't enough to cut it. Showed us a documentary on tigers too. Overall great experience. Price is a little steep.

We stayed at Kipling Camp during March and almost had the place to ourselves, it was a wonderful experience being on the edge of the Kanha Tiger Reserve this is great for people who enjoy the wonders of nature.
Tara the elephant is resident at the camp and soon becomes your friend allowing you to get in her bathing pool and help wash her down she is a real character and a joy to behold.
The camp its self is excellent, we had a cottage by the waterhole which was wonderful,
just like the `Bloody Mary's' they serve. All the staff were great and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable, would love to go back.

Room Tip: Waterhole rooms are lovely

A place in the midst of nature, close to the tiger reserve. There was a permanent staff taking care of the excellent cottages, serving delicious food (both continental and Indian), as well as one or two young men which made us feel very welcome and put effort into making our stay a pleasant and successful one (like getting tickets for the reserve). There is also a lot of knowledge of nature and tigers especially, since the owner is involved in protecting tigers in India. There's a pool at the border of the area where deer sometimes come to drink, just outside the terrace of some of the cottages. And a daily hightlight was walking with - or on - the elephant and take a bath in the river, and afterwards giving the her a good scrub. An amazing experience.
