On a secluded bank of the western Ramganga river lies one of most remote wildlife lodges in northern India. Accessible only by a 2 km cross-country walk and raft across the river waters, this walking safari lodge is a wilderness paradise unlike anything else to be found around Jim Corbett National Park.
Broad leafed forested hills, riverine valley, elephants, wild boar, deer and langurs give you company while you stay amidst them in the jungle. It is a place to discover yourself amidst wildlife. It is a place where conservation meets tourism
The lodge was earlier meant to be a private fishing spot for close friends and family and a charming stone cottage was constructed. However, disconcerted with the state of popular tourism in India’s national parks, Sumantha (the lodge owner) chose to expand the lodging, building six mud and thatch bungalows, thus creating a rich experience for true wildlife enthusiasts that was not detrimental to the landscape or fauna whilst supporting local communities through gainful employment. Modest, traditional and in many ways ahead of its time, in true Corbett fashion.
The ‘Walking Safari Lodge’ is made up of just six private cottages and dining area, kitchen and researcher’s quarters, bordered on all but the northeastern side by forest, which is where the Ramganga river flows.
Each cottage, which can accommodate 2 or 3 guests, has an en-suite bathroom and a veranda surrounding three quarters of the building from which to relax and watch the wildlife in our grounds which have been planted with species specifically to attract birdlife.
Even with our remote location and access to predominantly locally sourced ingredients, our healthy and varied meals are a highlight. All served in our dining area with dinner served by candlelight. We are happy to accommodate special dietary requests with prior notice.
