Jim's Jungle Retreat, Corbett, Rajasthan

The 10-acre retreat is encircled by a seasonal riverbed and reserve forest and is barely two km from CTR’s open-around-the-year Jhirna forest.. Raj-era styled thatched cottages and wrap-around verandahs provide the perfect jungle camp ambience, embellished by the retreat’s landscaped vistas, water bodies and wide open spaces. Native fruiting trees and shrubs have been planted to encourage nesting by transitory and domestic bird species that are often followed by their predators.

Each cottage offers large private verandahs, where the sounds of the forest - an alarm call, a bird song or the busy internment of bustling honey bees – is all you’ll need to slip into complete serenity.

Slide shows and wild life films are projected in our thatched sitting room. On days when the sun shines bright and temperatures rise, when heat escapes the ground in wisps of hot air, dip into our sparkling swimming pool or experience a stimulating Ayurvedic massage.

Our dining area, open to the forested surroundings, offers a unique mixture of cuisine from the days of the Raj and the present. On some evenings, a surprise Indian barbeque, hosted in true shikar camp style awaits you by a bonfire, where Kumaoni folk dances, folklore and discussions on field-based wildlife experiences are encouraged. Our sunset bar caters to thirsty throats after a tiring day of tiger tracking or logging off the bird list.

Or just listen to the alarm calls of prey species and feel the presence of predators in the vicinity… an unforgettable experience for a first timer and a nostalgic journey for an old timer.
