We went to Kipling Camp for three nights having taken the train from Jabalpur. We had three rooms all spacious with lovely touches in the room. Quite liked the tiger cotton dhurries. The manager Ivan was welcoming and great with the kids as was his intrepid volunteer from the UK. We felt right at home, the Indian food was tasty and they made a real effort for the gluten free amongst the family. Wifi was available in the main lodge and less so in the rooms. The park drives, massages, walks with Tara, were well worth it. Ironically, the family saw a leopard being chased by a jackal outside of the park itself. We could have easily stayed several nights more. There were leopards and animals roaming the compounds all evening but alongside the thunder, it was a surreal experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kipling Camp is the perfect destination for those who wish to relax in idyllic surrounds and explore the remote forests and villages of central India. Our comfortable cottages are set in 25 acres of unspoilt jungle. It is one of the finest wildlife camps in India with attention given to every detail. Kipling is also the home of Tara, a much-loved elephant who loves to be bathed and scrubbed in the Banjar River by guests. ... more less
