My stay here was the last part of a holiday of a lifetime and I was not disappointed. The location is beautiful and makes you feel very "at one" with nature. I was fortunate to have sightings of nearly all the species of wildlife in the national park including spectacular sightings of leopards and bears. All the staff are superb... More

What’s not to like? Starting from the time we were picked up at the airport till the time we were dropped off, we were repeatedly convinced that Forsyth Lodge was a true value-for-money proposition. We were picked up at the airport by a courteous, soft-spoken gentleman who drove so carefully that we dozed blissfully through the 4-hour drive. One of... More

Fabulous lodge run on eco-friendly principles and employing local staff. Guiding by David was superb, the food delicious and the atmosphere so friendly and relaxed. A real highlight was visiting Gudda's and Lakshmi's house in the village and meeting all the kids and grandpa. The next day Lakshmi and some other women cooked us local specialities for lunch, so delicious.... More

From our welcome by Rishi, everything was amazing. The rooms were a real treart after a long day birdwatching and animal watching. The service was outstanding, the best I've ever experienced. The food was constant, and excellent. Afternoon tea with cake was memorable, as was the quantity and variety of the food served. We were really made to feel welcome... More

We landed in Bhopal and drove down to Forsyth Lodge. It took us around 3.5 hours to reach. There are no sign posts directing you the Lodge so you are better off asking the Lodge to send their car. As soon as you arrive we were greeted by the team at the Lodge . Rishi Sarma, the Manager of the... More

Fantastic experience with Rishi and his team. We could not have asked for anything else from a place so secluded. The team went out of their way to accommodate our needs and it was much appreciated. The lodge and the trip in general is a perfect combination for those who want to escape to nature and meet some fantastic people... More

Recommended by a friend our booking was made in a rush, very last minute and luckily our visas were ready in time. We are very glad we made the effort as this holiday (my wife's first time in India) rated as one of our best. Satpura is a great and very picturesque reserve which due to the uncertainty of seeing...

I spent a few days at Forsyth Lodge end of last year. Had a lovely time. The hospitality was fantastic. I was lucky to sight a tiger, bears and leopards during my trip. Safaris, canoe rides, night safaris in the buffer zone, a great Christmas dinner...what else can a nature lover and wildlife photographer want! A WIP travelogue is here:... More

Forsyth is a lovely lodge, about 4 hours drive from Bhopal airport. Very comfortable cottages - ours had a balcony at the back and a lovely machan-type setting above the room, with a double bed with mosquito nets where we could lounge in the day or even choose to sleep at night! The safaris were great - we loved that... More
