monsoon forest details
Charmingly rustic interiors, mature sal wood rafters and eclectic furniture make it an ideal place to relax and soak in the ambience.
Surrounded by forest with a breath taking view of the Bandhavgarh Fort, Monsoon Forest is just a few minutes’ drive from the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Tala zone. With the highest density of tigers in the wild Bandhavgarh is not only the best wildlife reserve to view this magnificent cat but also to enjoy the beauty of jungles of Central India.
Accommodation & Facilities
Only six safari tents, each set under the shade of Mahua trees gives you the privacy and space to enjoy the wilderness and experience the warmth of Indian hospitality. Each tent boasts its own private wrap around verandas with views of mature grasslands surrounded by our upcoming forest. Made to order safari furniture, wooden floors, twin beds with great attention to comfort blended with discrete lighting. En-suite bathrooms with modern amenities.
A private massage area in the verandas with an option of a yoga lesson in the mornings or a dip in the newly built swimming pool is a great way to start the day in the privacy of your tent. The tent verandas are a haven for bird-watchers.
Other facilities include a library, wildlife art gallery, safari shop, television room, and services of a masseur, laundry service, parking facility, nursery of native flora, in-house naturalist, cooking classes and an organic vegetable nursery.
Our Kitchens offer a blend of home-cooked Indian and Nepali food, fresh spice and vegetables from our organic gardens and local villages add that extra zest in our traditional flavours. We also offer a small selection of pastas and sandwiches for guests who may want a break from the 'constant curry'. Guests are encouraged into our kitchens to watch and participate in our meal preparations and our cooks would be delighted to share their recipes.
Meals are served inside the Dining Room at the Baithak (Main Lodge) and also (depending on the weather and time of day) around a bonfire under the Mahua tree. Meals may also be served in the Nursery or alternatively, guests may dine in the privacy of their tent verandas.
Game drives explore parts of the tiger reserve that are often remote and tucked away in magic corners of the park, our experienced naturalist will introduce you to the rich bio diversity of the park. From the majestic tiger to the shy funnel web spiders, you will be rewarded with an insight into fine details of the natural world. Guests can also visit nearby forest villages to interact with local communities.
Children are welcome.
