The service and care that we experienced were exceptional. Shalin and Rhea are terrific hosts - we found them to be knowledgeable about the jungle and its occupants. Shalin is a superb, thoughtful and considerate guide. We will never forget the thrill of seeing tigers, but also enjoyed sightings of India's birds, other animals and plant-life. The landscape we drove... More

It's an awesome place to be. Shalin & Rhea are doing a great work for the environment and the park. Especially for the people around and in the jungle. Salutes to them! As Rhea truly said, the resort is like our own home in the jungle. The food, the accommodation and the hospitality of the staff and the hosts is... More

From the time we were collected by our lovely driver Raju to the time he got us back to where we needed to be - a very long drive, everything about being at Junglemantra was first class. Shailin and Rhea have created a beautiful African style lodge camp just on the edge of the Park. The accomodation is in single... More

A fabulous place to stay. You are made to feel like you belong there, that everything within the resort is yours for the time you stay. It is a boutique resort with only 5-8 rooms and is best enjoyed in a bigger group where you can book out the entire resort. This means that the food and service is customised... More

We were a group of 9 adults, 1 child and 2 babies. Each one of us enjoyed thoroughly. The hosts Rhea and Shailin went out of their way to cater to our every need. Rhea's catering was superb. The Christmas lunch in an idyllic outdoor setting with roast chicken and all the trimmings was superb. Every meal had a personal... More

Our group of 9 adults and 3 children, stayed at jungle mantra for 4 nights over the Christmas break. We had the resort to ourselves and Rhea and Shailin made us feel a part of the jungle mantra family. The hospitality and service were unsurpassable. We couldn't thank the staff and hosts enough for the wonderful experience we had and... More

This vacation would remain amongst the best vacations for us despite not being able to click the Tiger. We travel a lot and have stayed at good properties at several other occasions, but, nothing can beat the personal care provided by Shailin, his father and their staff. It was like visiting a long-lost friend or relative, nothing was commercial about... More

My wife and I have travelled and seen quite a bit of the world, but had never experienced a holiday in the forest; were keen for one. Staying at Junglemantra for 9 days from the 5th Nov 2014 was a wonderful experience, made all the more memorable by the owners Rhea and Shailin Ramji and their ever attentive staff. The... More

We stayed at Junglemantra in April 2014, & the whole experience could not be faulted. The accomodation & food were superb, Shalin & his staff made us so welcome from the moment we arrived to our farewell sendoff , & the safaris were a chance in a lifetime.
