The Community

This village is quite special to us, from its people to the different activities that took place while our set up took place. Being so remote from any major city, the rural villages that surround us use minimal means of transportation, electronics, and machines, truly transporting you back in time. Their features are farming and growing corn.

The Safari Experience

The entire camp is designed to cause the least impact to our mother nature. A major emphasis on reclaimed wood and furniture. From our solid wood dining tables that are made from logs of mango trees, to the artistic blue flooring which was reclaimed from government buildings and schools in Central India, each piece has its own story to tell.

The Wilderness around us

Wildlife is not only seen in our national parks, but even around us. With an ideal location, of being right next to the national park and away from crowds (being the only camp in the area), there is no disturbance for wildlife to pass freely through our camp. Whether you want to take a walk or a bike ride, our naturalists will accompany you to help identify the flora and fauna around us. Make sure to take your ‘Jamtara Book’ provided in your tents, in order to note everything you see. These videos are from the Camera trap around our tents. See who has been visiting.

Star Bed

We believe Wildlife Conservation is about striking the right balance between the interests of the animals, forests, and the local communities. It is crucial to work with these ancient tribes that have become one with the land, and have watched it change over time. For generations, the villagers have spent their nights in the fields on machans (beds made on raised platforms), to keep a watchful eye on the animals eating their crops. We at Jamtara, wanted to take this opportunity to let our guests have this unique experience.

Farm to Table Food

Cuisine is a major focus of your experience at the camp. Our farm to table approach, where the majority of our ingredients are sourced from locally grown farms, whilst benefiting the communities around us, is another step towards sustainability. Our Chefs have created a diverse menu, where even in a week long stay, your menu will not be repeated.

Our Patron

Bittu Sehgal

My family, grandchildren and all, absolutely fell in love with the Jamtara Wilderness Camp. Kailash Sankhala, the first Director, Project Tiger, and Amit's grandfather would have been proud of him and the team he has put together. Sanctuary is working with Amit to rewild the outskirts of the Pench Tiger Reserve in ways that help ensure that local communities become the primary beneficiaries of regenerated biodiversity.
