Professionally managed but with a family feel, the Jungle Retreat was one of our most memorable stays in India. Its offers a spectacular setting and great service.

The animals we saw near the watering hold were deer, which we also easily spotted on local safaris. Additionally, we saw giant squirrels navigating trees along the road, which we also spotted -- without the premium price of JRW... More
