As you enter the lodge, you wonder if this is a property or a jungle, privately owned or managed by the forest department. The property is 44 acres but only 4 acres have been used for construction and the rest is left to the wilderness.
Reminding you of the times when vacations were spent far from the hustle and bustle of the city, with loved ones, to enjoy the tranquillity of rural India. And the lodge provides you with a warm welcome and the most hospitable environment in the midst of the jungle.
Going against the tiger trend of most wildlife destinations in India, Satpura provides not just Jeep safari experience in the day but night patrolling in buffer areas, boat safari/canoeing, walking safari, camping experience in the buffer area, and so on.
Staying in the property that is surrounded by wilderness has its own perks of free movement of wild animals in and around the premises. The nights are filled with Spotted deer alarm calls pointing towards the movement of a predator that brings distress to them and excitement to us. Having a naturalist in such times makes it easier to decipher the story of the animal.
With little or no connectivity with the outside world, you start to rely more on your surroundings and senses, only to notice the aroma of the jungle, wondering what is it that’s making such loud whooping sounds only to be told those are the langur troops greeting or communicating with each other.
For the best cozy experience it’s advisable to have the necessary clothes according to the weather and even if not enough, the lodge provides blankets and hot water bags for the best safari experience.
While traveling our only worry is the food. Well, we vouch you would not have better food anywhere else. The meals are set for your palette after discussion with you before you arrive at the lodge and the staff is well equipped to provide for anything that needs to be added to your meals. One of the days you may opt to have lunch cooked by the local ladies from nearby villages cooked at our Forsyth Lodge in a wood fire. The lodge spoils you with finger-licking food and the jungle with the most amazing and dramatic wildlife experiences.
