ABOUT forsyth lodge, satpura national park

Being one of the only lodges in the area, guests at Forsyth Lodge have the privilege of enjoying wildlife sightings in an area devoid of other tourists. The Satpura National Park is a spectacular sanctuary for game drives in Central India, and the lodge has access to fantastic tiger territory, as well as offering guests the opportunity to view leopard, sloth bear and a huge variety of birds.

Less luxurious than some of the more lavish lodges, the emphasis here is on wildlife viewing. The guides at Forsyth Lodge are expertly trained and lead both the game drives and walking safaris. With a strong environmental ethos, all staff are employed from local villages, and the lodge has been designed to harvest rainwater and recycle all waste water.
