Jamtara Wilderness Camp


Their unique concept of a Star Bed and development of the buffer zone allows you to witness amazing wildlife experiences outside the national park. The villages in the surrounding area have never seen foreigners before, hence it becomes a very unique cultural experience as well. The swimming pool and main dining room are also complete which add to the ambience and facilities. 

In the Village of Jamtara, near Pench National Park you will find this 10 luxury tented property in the heart of rural Pench. Surrounded by tall Arjuna Trees and an ancient Banyan rooted on a dry riverbed, each tented room overlooks the forest which set the perfect background to this jungle experience.

Each luxury tent is designed to feel light and open, allowing guests the optimum view of nature. With the option of rolling up the front panels of the tent, the guests can bring the outside in but still being in the privacy of their own rooms. Although, these are tented rooms, the bathroom has been made into a permanent structure for the comfort of the guests.

While many may sleep inside the tent, some may feel a little more connected with nature and have the option of sleeping outside on their patio. Mosquito netting will keep the bugs away, quilts and hot water bottles will keep the cold warm.

Jamtara Wilderness Camp concentrates on bringing guests back to nature in a very simple way, using their surroundings and their community, they want their guests to leave with an unique experience and remember Jamtara and its people.

Star Bed

Since they also believe in supporting the community of the  lodge, a "Machaan" night can be booked while generating revenue for the farmers. Here the concept is sleeping under the stars, just like the villagers. These Machaans are built on the land of the farmers and an amount of the night's rate will be paid to the farmer. Sleeping up high on stilts will allow you to watch the sky and everything below. You never know what walks through the farms at night….

Pench National Park

Located on the quiet side of Pench National Park with  park entrances at Jamtara and Karmajhiri gates, Jamtara Wilderness Camp is  just 2 minutes from the Jamtara gate, with not another lodge in sight. The Jamtara gate provides access to the northern segment of Pench, north of the river, far from the restricted Turia range (where all the other lodges are presently clustered.)  

The camp is at the edge of the buffer zone jungle and is teeming with wildlife - leopard, wild dogs and even tiger. In the past few months big cat sightings have been frequent, making Pench a preferable park for many wildlife enthusiasts.

It derives its name from the Pench River that flows through the National park from north to south dividing the park into almost equal western and eastern halves. It was declared a sanctuary in 1988 and raised to the status of National park in 1983. In 1992 it was established as a Tiger Reserve. It is here where Rudyard Kipling got his inspiration for the Jungle Book.

The best time to visit the park is between November and May.

Things to do at location or nearby

Jungle safaris are booked according to the guest's preferences along with a wake-up call if needed. During the day you are occupied with the safaris, morning and afternoon. If you choose to stay back, a visit to village can be arranged. Specializing in producing jaggery, just walking through this village and witnessing who the village gathers around enormous pots of boiling sugar, taking turns of churning the sugarcane juice into unrefined sugar is a very unique experience.

A walk in the buffer area of the forrest can also be arranged which is quite thrilling..... with playful monkeys and deer almost within arms reach. Night drives in and around the buffer area is also possible, under a star studded sky, you never know what you might come across. 

If a relaxing day is required, the  lodge has many different areas for you to lounge around and read a book. With a cozy library, enjoy a good book in a big comfy couch. They also have a swimming pool to cool down at, while relaxing in the reflection of the Banyan tree.
