Set in idyllic woodland surroundings, enjoy a stay en famille in a selection of 13 en suite rooms all with sit-out or veranda, overlooking vast fields. Feel at home and spend time playing board games in the comfortable sitting room, reading a book in the library or sipping drinks in the bar.

Enjoy authentic ‘home cooked’ buffet spreads with fresh organically grown ingredients from the farm or procured directly from local farmers. The recipes include a rich and varied mix of local specialties and contemporary Indian and continental dishes. Relish meals underneath beautiful old trees and enjoy evening bonfires with a spot of stargazing.

Set against a stunning backdrop, framed by the ravines and sandbanks, the calm waters of the Chambal River are best explored by boat. The gentle pace of the River Safari is designed to provide spectacular sightings of gharials, muggers and turtles basking in the sun, the many migratory and resident birds and occasional glimpses of the Gangetic River dolphin breaking surface. Be transported back in time on a Camel Safari and explore the ancient settlement of Bateshwar, go on heritage walks, meet the friendly inhabitants of local communities and embark on a Blackbuck Jeep safari. Take a leisurely cycle around the lodge on bicycles, enjoy nature walks led by resident naturalist guides around the plantation or gather around the blazing fire pit at night to chat about your adventurous day.

Chambal Safari Lodge is accessible by road, train and air from all major cities of India so can be easily incorporated into a longer trip.
