Abundant birdlife makes a walk in the vicinity a safari in itself!! The cabins are very comfortable and private, the food at the lodge was superb (lunch in...

The setting of the lodge is quite idyllic surrounded by lush trees and vegetation with bird calls and chatter constantly around. There is a large communal central area with outdoor seating, a fire pit, food counter. Travelling to Chambal from Agra was quite an experience at the time of our trip, due to the road works for a substantial length...

Myself and a friend recently stayed at this idylic family friendly lodge to enable us to visit the Chambal river and surrounding area. We'd spent time in Agra and although the monuments and frenetic energy captivated us there for a few days, it was truly delightful arriving at this quiet and peaceful sanctuary about an hour or two south of...

We recently spent 3 days, 2 nights at this very friendly and nicely run establishment. The meals were plentiful, cooked by a very talented chef, who was very willing to accommodate dietary needs of his patrons. Meals were a very pleasant way to start, then back during the hottest part of the day for lunch and the afternoon break time...

For families with young children it is paradise. Our two boys spend endless hours exploring the wooded grounds surrounding the lodge. There are trees to climb, spotted owlets...
