We stayed as a couple in one of the two floor chalets - the upper floor having a bed open to the skies! From here we could overlook the extensive grounds. Downstairs was very comfortable and well appointed. The Lodge provides a sumptuous 'brunch' for guests travelling on early morning drives in the fabulous Satpura Nature reserve that is accessed...

Wildlife lodges are as good as the people who run them. And this is where Forsyth Lodge scores highly- they have a dedicated team of professionals who take care of every detail - accommodation and food at the lodge, and very well informed naturalists whose passion for the jungle is infectious. While all visitors come with a one point agenda... More

Lodge Facilities: The lodge facilities are quite nice and well maintained. The rooms had an AC (which was hugely welcoming since we visited in June and it was quite hot). The lodge has a small plunge pool as well - which is also very helpful in cooling off after a safari ride. The naturalists at the lodge are extremely knowledgeable... More

Satpura National Park is stunningly beautiful and uncrowded. Unlike many national parks in India it is also well managed. As an experienced wildlife traveler in Africa, Asia, and the Americas, I highly recommend Forsyth's. The lodge is very comfortable with thoughtful and stylish decor, a very nice pool, and great a/c. The food is excellent with a mix of wonderful... More

Satpura Tiger Reserve is a special place -- scenically gorgeous, a great variety of topography, excellent wildlife and the opportunity to walk, canoe and drive in the park. Visitors are being treated to a very high frequency of sightings of bear and leopard which is quite unusual. Bird life is fantastic especially because the park allows boat trips and canoe... More

Guides and owner very knowledgable and helpful. Other guests very friendly and talkative. We'd never been to a wildlife preserve before and on the second day they said what would you like to see. We said uhmm, how 'bout a leopard?! Tracks noted and within an hour we called everyone in the park to our leopard site where the cat... More

Excellent service and the room was very good. After 15 days of Indian food it was nice to get to get some American food for breakfast! Staff was top notch and is your best asset. More drinking water in the room would be appreciated.
