We stayed at Kipling Camp in 2015 and had the trip of our lives. We loved every single minute of our stay here. The staff were wonderfully welcoming - they could not do enough for us. The first activity was to meet the truly beautiful Tara , following her down to the river for her bath and fun in the... More

Positive points: very friendly staff, the location, the beautiful "outside livingroom", the morning bird walk (and safaris) and being able to be that close to a lovely elephant. Negative points: the room was full of mosquitos at arrival (and holes in the mosquito net), the bed was in bad condition, the shower sprinkled water everywhere, and the bathroom was dirty.... More

Spent two nights here and would happily have stayed longer. Nice cottages, not particularly luxurious but functional and comfortable. Good dinner/lounge are to relax in during the afternoon or for pre-dinner drinks (large beer 400 rupees) Staff helpful and prepared to cook meals to suit children or those who do not always want spice. Make sure you have game drives... More

We had a wonderful time at Kipling! Everything very efficiently organised, the cottages very comfortable and the meals good. The group were lucky enough to get a good sighting of a tiger on the second safari and everyone loved playing in the river with Tara. It is a lovely peaceful setting and was great to have deer wandering through the... More

We went to Kipling Camp for three nights having taken the train from Jabalpur. We had three rooms all spacious with lovely touches in the room. Quite liked the tiger cotton dhurries. The manager Ivan was welcoming and great with the kids as was his intrepid volunteer from the UK. We felt right at home, the Indian food was tasty... More

Kipling camp really has to be seen to be believed. The staff have generally long tenure, and are extremely devoted to the needs of guests. The manager is very hands on, and nothing is too much trouble. The safari setup is good, and by the time we arrived at Kipling we had been to a few other setups which are... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were fortunate enough to have 3 morning Safari Drives, which were all fantastic, and we were lucky enough to catch sight of a Tiger which was incredible to see up close! The camp itself is beautiful. The manager and staff (including volunteers) were very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and the team... More

My family stayed at Kipling Camp for three nights and four days in January 2016 - our second visit. Ivan and the staff were very considerate of every need and took care to ensure our stay was memorable in every way. They succeeded. No tigers this time but plenty of others in the park were lucky enough. We loved spending... More

We have just spent 5 wonderful days at Kipling Camp. The accommodation was in cosy cabins, each one thoughtfully and individually designed by the camp's owner. Hot showers and comfy beds are just what you need after a day of activities. The staff at Kipling camp go out of their way to make your stay special in everyway. Game drives... More

Arrange for trips to the forest (pay in advance). Saw tigers. Bathed Tara the elephant. Excellent European food and bar. Went around Christmas, special decorated buffet lunch. Shouldn't roam around at night cos it's not a fenced in area and leopards can come in. Overall safe. Common dining place and meal times. Fireplace. Very cold in winter though.. the hot... More
