A wonderful eco-lodge set on a 19th century estate camp which the present owners, Ram Pratap Singh and wife Anu, inherited in the 1990s and transformed into a country retreat with a difference. Set in 35 acres of rambling grounds, the old buildings have been immaculately restored and furnished in period.
Accommodation is offered in the former estate block, where spacious suites have their own enclosed gardens, or individual tiled cottages whose verandahs open on to the forest. Meals are sociable affairs, beginning with chat around the bonfire before a generous buffet is served made entirely from organic ingredients grown on the farm.
At a mere hour's drive from the iconic Taj Mahal, the Chambal Safari Lodge makes an excellent addition to a tour of India's Golden Triangle for those looking to incorporate wildlife and a night or two of oasis-like tranquility.
Enjoy a two-night stay at the Chambal Safari Lodge on our 15-day The Gangetic Plain and Lucknow tailor-made tour.
