We had a great time at Forsyth - it was a very special experience. Vineeth was our excellent naturalist - and we saw lots of wildlife including Leopard, Sloth Bear, wild dogs etc - but EVERYONE we met at Forsyth was excellent and contributed to our stay. My only complaint ..... we could only stay for 2 nights. Thank you...

Its a very special experience to arrive somewhere with average expectations and be floored coz they're not just met but far surpassed! The lodge is very tastefully appointed, graciously spread out and the cottages extremely comfortable with a superb deep private verandah that harks of laid-back days gone by. Krishna is a versatile, talented chef and we ate way too...

Although some "trek" to get there...especially from the nearest railway station, once there you can guarantee a warm welcome,great service/lodgings/food, many of the staff are well informed of the wild life in the area...and the safety of the client while "out on safari" is paramount. Great relaxation areas ...pool, library, veranda. If you want an excellent place to stay while...

After a very hectic two weeks visiting Rajasthan, it was wonderful to experience Forsyth Lodge's tranquility and beauty. Close to Satpura National Park the lodge is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the area. The accommodation is excellent, comfortable and spotlessly clean and the food delicious. One of the highlights culinary-wise was the meal cooked by local...

Hasten to Forsyth Lodge. Satpura National Park is utterly beautiful, especially the approach across the river. The naturalists led us through this magical landscape, revealing its secrets, showing us wonders. Even without the animals, the forest is enchanting. But we saw so many animals -- sloth bears, gaur, deer, boar, wild dogs, troops of langurs, giant squirrels. And leopards. Watching...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Forsyth's Satpura is a stylish and an environmentally friendly lodge that is engaged with the park management and the local community in a pioneering effort to create an unprecedented jungle experience in one of the most exciting tiger habitats in the world. This is an effort to create an exceptional wilderness experience for those who truly revel in wild places far from the jeep borne hordes that have defaced so many other parks. Here we provide you with an opportunity to explore the jungle on foot, by canoe's, on elephant back, jeeps and motorised boats. You can also experience the nocturnal creatures that the jungles offer by sitting in our machaan which is set in the 45 acres of wilderness around the lodge. We have been ranked 2nd in the recent survey by Conde Nast traveller in the top 30 eco destinations in India and have also been awarded for our outstanding performance by TOFT. ... more   less
