if it was only to see Tara the elephant this place is worth it. but the attention to detail and the level of service provided is upper level. A complete high recommendation. lodges are sufficient, their attention to detail includes a nightly turn down service with a insect net over the bed and hot water bottles below the covers. food...

This was my second visit to Kipling Camp and again, my stay was flawless. I love the white cottages dotting the property, the serenity of the camp where only birds sing, the hammocks under the trees, the bath with Tara the elephant in the river, the drinks with the other guests before dinner, the bonfire going on under the veranda......

We stayed at Kipling Camp in 2015 and had the trip of our lives. We loved every single minute of our stay here. The staff were wonderfully welcoming - they could not do enough for us. The first activity was to meet the truly beautiful Tara , following her down to the river for her bath and fun in the...

Positive points: very friendly staff, the location, the beautiful "outside livingroom", the morning bird walk (and safaris) and being able to be that close to a lovely elephant. Negative points: the room was full of mosquitos at arrival (and holes in the mosquito net), the bed was in bad condition, the shower sprinkled water everywhere, and the bathroom was dirty....

Spent two nights here and would happily have stayed longer. Nice cottages, not particularly luxurious but functional and comfortable. Good dinner/lounge are to relax in during the afternoon or for pre-dinner drinks (large beer 400 rupees) Staff helpful and prepared to cook meals to suit children or those who do not always want spice. Make sure you have game drives...

We had a wonderful time at Kipling! Everything very efficiently organised, the cottages very comfortable and the meals good. The group were lucky enough to get a good sighting of a tiger on the second safari and everyone loved playing in the river with Tara. It is a lovely peaceful setting and was great to have deer wandering through the...

We went to Kipling Camp for three nights having taken the train from Jabalpur. We had three rooms all spacious with lovely touches in the room. Quite liked the tiger cotton dhurries. The manager Ivan was welcoming and great with the kids as was his intrepid volunteer from the UK. We felt right at home, the Indian food was tasty...

Kipling camp really has to be seen to be believed. The staff have generally long tenure, and are extremely devoted to the needs of guests. The manager is very hands on, and nothing is too much trouble. The safari setup is good, and by the time we arrived at Kipling we had been to a few other setups which are...

We were fortunate enough to have 3 morning Safari Drives, which were all fantastic, and we were lucky enough to catch sight of a Tiger which was incredible to see up close!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kipling Camp is the perfect destination for those who wish to relax in idyllic surrounds and explore the remote forests and villages of central India. Our comfortable cottages are set in 25 acres of unspoilt jungle. It is one of the finest wildlife camps in India with attention given to every detail. Kipling is also the home of Tara, a much-loved elephant who loves to be bathed and scrubbed in the Banjar River by guests. ... more   less
