About Jamtara Wilderness Camp
Situated in the Village of Jamtara, near Pench National Park, Jamtara Wilderness Camp is a 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.
Tiger –National animal, the spirit of the country and its terrain. Nature’s most solitary and efficient predator, an integral part of Indian mythology and culture since early times.
Tiger Resort Pvt Ltd was established in 1987 to provide the sophisticated, environmentally friendly experience of untamed beauty of Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks – through the Jungle Lodges.
The Jungle lodges were the signature creation of visionary Late Mr. Pradeep Sankhala, in his endeavor to promote eco viable and earthy tourism. For 15 years, Mr. Pradeep Sankhala personally handled and looked into the management of the lodge. Today in continuation with his family’s legacy of Tiger conservation and responsible tourism, Mr. Amit Sankhala son of Late Mr. Pradeep Sankhala has taken over the ropes of the lodges.
The lodge is built with minimum interference to the natural environment of the jungle and is managed on eco-friendly principles. Mr. Pushpender Singh– G.M. – Bandhavgarh Lodge and Tarun and Dimple Bhati G.M.- Kanha Lodge, keen wildlife enthusiasts, has been with the company since its inception and are responsible for the daily management and smooth functioning.
We believe that the most important aspect of a wildlife experience is the interpretation of nature and its habitant by an accompanied expert or who we call naturalist.
The whole experience of your wilderness gets enriched with the naturalist’s in-depth knowledge of the local flora & fauna. Our wildlife experts are excellent in narrating and deeply believe that knowledge is a treasure which increases with sharing. A trip with us to the jungle, not only leaves you with the sense of thrill and excitement but also deepens your wisdom lasting beyond your vacation. Our trips are meant to heighten the individual’s pleasure, awareness, and intellect.
Along with the resident naturalists, our lodges also employ intern students from the globe through our training programme. Naturalist interns are hired for their interest, love, and appreciation for nature and wildlife. The interns get an opportunity to stay and work alongside our resident naturalists in one of the highest density tiger reserves of the world. For more details about the training programme kindly get in touch with us.
Today, Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge and Kanha Jungle Lodge are managed by Pradeep’s son – Amit Sankhala (grandson of Kailash Sankhala) who with his boundless enthusiasm and charm owns, operates and manages both the Jungle Lodges. With his vast knowledge and interest in the field of eco-tourism, he continues the legacy of conservation and wildlife tourism. Amit is the Managing Director of Tiger Resorts Pvt.Ltd and Indian Nature Expeditions.
