Feel the magic around you
Spend as much time as you can in this most beautiful of tiger reserves. Spend a night at Pachmarhi – Central India’s highest point and soak up the charm of the Satpura mountains from a rare vantage point. Walk the trails that James Forsyth discovered over 150 years ago in an exciting 3 day expedition. Camp overnight in the buffer zone and be a part of the nocturnal delights of the jungle. Bring your children to experience the magic of nature at our jungle lodge through the Junior Rangers Program.
In an effort to reduce the pressure of tourism on the core zone, Satpura offers travelers a range of Jungle safari options. There’s nothing quite like exploring the jungle in an open-top jeep. Unless it is exploring forest trails by foot, or discovering water birds and the local wildlife while drifting down the river in a canoe or motorboat. Step into the wild.
Step into the wild.
“We had the most fantastic time at Forsyths Lodge. The team are so welcoming and absolutely passionate about their work, it was quite infectious. We enjoyed brilliant game drives, a river safari and night drive. I was not expecting to see so many species including a magnificent tiger, thanks to Venkatesh.
I would definitely love to return, many thanks"
“This is a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are individual “houses” – ours had an additional bed on the roof with a mosquito net, we slept one night there. The food is great the chef makes about a dozen dishes every night – all made from different areas of India and all exquisitely spiced for flavour. There is a herb garden in the grounds where the vegetables and herbs are grown. There is a lovely rooftop space for pre dinner drinks. Satpura national park is next door – we saw tigers, sloth bears and many deer, antelope and an incredible range of birds. The guides are exceptional."
“This is probably the best place I have ever stayed in. All of the staff are fantastically friendy and cannot do enough to help you. For example we just happened to meantion what we’re not keen on some ingredients and they were revomed from the menu for the duration of our stay.
The guides at the hotel are also very good, they spent a lot of time talking to us before we started out safaris to understand exactly what we wanted to get from our time at the lodge and then tried their best to ensure they met or exceeded all of our expectations.
A special thank you to Venky our naturalist during our stay, he made our holiday very special and his enthusiasm for nature was lovely to see.
Finally, I want to say how much we appreciated this lodges respect for nature. It was one of the few places we visited where the naturalists encouraged drivers to give the animals space so that would not be afraid and so act more naturally."
“We stayed here for three nights and could not have had a better experience. Our room was really more like a suite with an outside sleeping area upstairs as well as the bed inside. We also had an upstairs and downstairs verandah. The surrounds of the lodge were also beautiful and open for wildlife to wander through. We had a spotted deer pass our lodge one afternoon.
The food was delicious including the picnic breakfasts for the early morning safaris.
Deepanker, the General Manager, and his entire team were superb. Definitely worth a visit if the chance arises."
“Top Lodge, top staff and top sightings. At last we got to see sloth bears (Note the plural !!). Would love to stay here again."
“Wonderful place to stay. Amazing food and a different dining area for every meal! All the staff was so helpful and friendly and efficient."
“We had a really lovely time. Every day and every safari was outstanding. We spotted the bear and it was really an experience. My first safari and it was a great experience. Staff was outstanding. Well done!"
