KIPLING CAMP is a nice destination for those who wish to relax in nature surrounds and explore the remote forests and villages of central India. Established in 1982 by a family of conservationists on the edge of Kanha National Park, it is one of the oldest wildlife camps in India. Over the years, the Camp has moved gently with the times, without spoiling its magical atmosphere.
Kipling Camp’s motto is "treading softly in the jungle".
With a strong wildlife and local community focus, Kipling Camp offers a unique and very personal experience in the wilds of Kanha Tiger Reserve. Kipling Camp is also the home of Tara, a much-loved elephant who loves to be bathed in the nearby river.
Families are particularly welcome at Kipling which is a wonderful place for children to learn about nature and experience real wildlife. There are a number of great activities to choose from, including washing Tara, the elephant!
A campfire is lit at night, and listening to the sounds of the jungle and sharing tales of adventure, provide the perfect end to an exciting day.
Each of the 30 cottages has an individual identity and is built up using the local materials. There are two-to four-room cottages, with private verandahs offering views of the Camp and the surrounding forest. The rooms have twin or double beds, tea and coffee making facilities, and tiled ensuite bathrooms with showers. Heaters and hot water bottles are provided in the winter, and coolers or air-conditioners in the summer.
These are multiple dining options at the resort: under a mahua tree, on a patio, or even under the stars. Many of the private cottages in the hotel overlook the water-body, which remains full of rainwater even during the harshest of the weather condition.
