The Wilds of Satpura

November to March | A Sustainable Wilderness Luxury Getaway | Central Indian Highlands | Enquire about your preferred dates | Tell us how many nights you'd like to travel for

Listen to the sounds of silence. Feel the rest of the world fade away. It's just you, the wind, and the rustle of leaves. And of course, a jungle filled with fantastic creatures to see. Come stay in a luxurious, yet responsible lodge and experience the wonders of the wild. Drift on the Denwa River in a canoe, walk through the forest with trained guides, drive through the forest at night, see a sky filled more stars than you've ever seen, and explore Pachmarhi, MP's only hill station. Every safari you embark on will be made much more informative and fun by a trained naturalist. Identify the calls of the wild, the sounds of the birds and experience the joy that comes from being outdoors. Come, explore the wilds of Satpura with us.

Your Wild Itinerary:

 

Day 1: Arrival and Night safari

  • Arrive at Bhopal Airport excited about the next few days. Our services start here and will conclude once we drop you off at the end of this journey.

  • Check into your luxury lodge by noon. Settle in, and prepare for an experience you won't forget.

  • A walk in and around the property is an absolute treat. Scan the river for birds and crocodiles. 

  • At dusk, head out for a safari in the dark. See how different the jungle looks and feels without the warmth of the sun. Hear the sounds of the jungle at night. Try and spot nocturnal animals like the jungle cat and nocturnal birds like owls.

  • Return to your lodge for dinner and sleep well, knowing another adventure awaits you at dawn! 

Day 2: Into the wild

  • Head out early for a jeep safari into the core area of Satpura National Park. Keep an eye out for tigers, leopards, sloth bears and if you're lucky, bear cubs. And no, you can't take any cubs home with you. 

  • The forest is also home to nilgais, deer, giant squirrels, wild dogs and more. How many will you spot? 

  • Return to the lodge for a break. Check your photos, camera battery and prepare for the next adventure.

  • But most importantly, take the time to notice as much as you can about the jungle

  • Return to your luxury lodge for the night. Rest.

Day 3: Day trip to Pachmarhi

  • Head out early in the morning and drive to MP's only hill station Pachmarhi.

  • Stay awake and observe the winding roads, dense sal forests and spot old churches along the way. See the sights when you reach the town and head out on foot to explore the place. The walks are not challenging and can be handled easily. 

  • In the evening, drive back to your luxury lodge for the night.

Day 4: More Safari Time

  • Step out early for an early morning jeep safari in the core area. How many animals will you spot today?

  • Don't forget to look for birds too. Black storks, mottled wood owls, hornbills, vultures, shrikes, eagles, little-ringed plovers, oriental white eyes and many more birds call this forest home. 

  • Return to the lodge and relax. Splash around in the pool, spend some super quiet time.

 

Day 5: Walking Safari

 

  • Step out for a walking safari in the core area.

  • Head back to the lodge for a scrumptious lunch.  

  • Later, walk around in the property with a naturalist for an excellent birding experience. We hope your animal and bird wishlist has been satisfied and this walk shows you more of nature's wonders. If not, just enjoy the jungle. 

  • Return to the lodge for a little something special on your last night here. 

 

Day 6: Fly away

  • And just like that, our time is up. But if you have time, you could try one last boat safari (extra charge) with our guide.

  • Or you could laze around and enjoy a late breakfast. 

  • Check out and head to the airport.
