The Ultimate Travelling Camp - Jaagir Lodge

Remote and little-explored, Dudhwa Natioinal Park lacked any suitable accommodation for wildlife enthusiasts until The Ultimate Travelling Camp Jaagir Lodge opened. Imagine a private home built in the 1940s in the middle of a sugar cane plantation.

Previously used by the British Governors as a hunting lodge; now private and luxurious accommodation in seven acres of forest land located in the Terai belt of grasslands and savannah.

WHY WE LIKE the ultimate travelling camp - jaagir lodge

We are one of the few companies to know it personally and we love it. Spend at least three nights at Jaagir Lodge to allow plenty of time to explore all four parks that make up this wildlife experience.

Facilities

Understated luxury in the wilderness, the Jaagir Lodge, Dudhwa is an amazing coming together of antique furniture, beautiful wallpaper patterns, rich upholstery and an overall feeling of comfort. You have the option of staying in the main Lodge or in the Villas or ‘jhaalas’ which are spread across the five acres of land. The Villas easily sleep four so perfect for family occasions. All the accommodation options are non-smoking and come with double beds and air conditioning (both heating and cooling). There are no in-room televisions or mod cons, however, there is a fully stocked bar with open fire, a large verandah where guests have breakfast and tea and a freshwater swimming pool.

Activities

Early morning and afternoon jeep and boat safaris in the park, led by head naturalist Amit and his established team plus well-organised buffer zone walks, and farm visits. Don't miss the sundowners under the stars and private dining, machan style. Expect to see a tiger, rhino, leopard, gharial, and Fishing Cat in this remote region of India without the crowds. A wildlife enthusiasts delight.

LOCATION

The Dudhwa Tiger Reserve is a protected area in Uttar Pradesh sharing the northeastern boundary with Nepal. The Terai, the marshy jungle between the Himalayas and the plains of India, has magnificent biodiversity of Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary and Dudhwa National Park and their rich wetlands and rivers, lakes and ponds that are home to countless bird species.

To access Dudhwa, fly from Delhi to Lucknow followed by a four-hour drive. Alternatively, it can be reached across the border from Nepal, a short two hour hop away including the border crossing which we can arrange. Ask us about the option of chartering a private plane to reach here.
