Madhya Pradesh is the tiger state of India. In this province of India lies Pench National Park. This park served as the setting for the famous ‘Jungle Book’ by English author Rudyard Kipling. Pench National Park is pristine and has an enormous wealth of prey animals, even the tiger likes to come here.
Jamtara Wilderness Camp is actually a secret address. It is located on the quiet side of Pench National Park. Here the green jungle almost enters through the opening of your tent and you are only separated from nature by tent cloth. The abundance of nature does not mean that your comfort is skimped on. All twelve spacious luxury tents are equipped with wonderful beds, a private bathroom and a veranda with chairs.
Jamtara is named after the adjacent village. Here the inhabitants live mainly from the harvest of maize and sugar cane. They are hospitable and invite you for a cup of tea. In the camp, tastefully laid tables and a cozy campfire await you when you return from your safari and stories about tigers and leopards are then shared extensively.
For the real adventurers among us, there is a sleep-out. Spending the night on a traditional machan, a mosquito net is all that separates you from the wilderness. A thick blanket keeps you warm and the stars, which serve as nightlights… Jamtara Wilderness Camp is listed in Condé Nast Traveller’s The Hotlist 2015.
