Kipling Camp’s motto is 'treading softly in the jungle' and the camp has a strong focus on local community and wildlife, offering guests a unique experience in the wilds of Kanha Tiger Reserve.
Accommodation is in 15 cottages – each with its own verandah - and set amidst unspoiled jungle. There is also a private cottage, which has a bedroom, sitting room and a patio overlooking the camp’s waterhole. Food is a range of western and Indian cuisine, served at a number of locations around the camp and produced by Kipling’s three experienced chefs.
If you are lucky, you might glimpse a mottled wood owl or a giant flying squirrel in the forest. There are plenty of places to sit and relax around the camp, including the well-stocked library, and trained masseuses are on hand to provide Ayurvedic massages.
