• Easy access to Pench National Park, rich in wildlife including tigers
  • Romantic tents with opening walls – watch the forest from your bed
  • Star gazing from four-poster beds standing on stilts
  • Walks to the village and through forests home to flying squirrels
  • Delicious dining, cookery classes and a welcoming pool

This is the epitome of glamping – a luxury camp situated in a stunning locartion by Pench National Park, right next to a rarely used entrance, so offering some of the best chances to spot tigers in the area. The tents at Jamtara are huge, with en suites featuring soothing showers, hardwood flooring and outdoor decks overlooking the forest. Outside, all is nature, inside, all is comfort dressed in colonial style. The airy interiors are enlivened by bright traditional fabrics and by the sun pouring in through the front, which can be rolled up to make the most of the setting at any hour.

In more detail

The camp's focal point is an ancient Banyan tree where campfires are lit and cocktails served under starry skies. It’s possible to extend the pleasure by asking for a ‘star-bed’ for the night – set up outdoors under mosquito nets for an all-nighter designed for star watching. Early morning and late afternoon safaris into the park are the highlights of the day, with the excitement of spotting deer, jackals, bison, stealthy tigers or perhaps even a secretive leopard. Guided walks are another delight, offering immersive hours in the magical forest that lines the property, or visits to Jamtara village.

Refreshing lunches and restorative dinners feature both western and local classics, usually served a thatched dining area, open to the outdoors, but can be enjoyed all out al fresco beneath a tree. Cooking classes are available on request, and there is a charming pool for spare sunny hours.
