From the moment of arrival the Forsyth arms will embrace you. The warmth and enthusiasm from every member of the team is infectious. You will want for nothing! A highly professional team, led by Rishi with the boundless energy of David and the wonderful calm of Varun will stay with me for years to come. Smiling is part of the service and you will be!
The game drives, boat trips and elephant ride (if you take one) are wonderful. Immersed and surrounded by extraordinary wildlife that will lift your spirit and touch your heart till it is fit to burst. My trip in the canoe with Varun and my elephant ride with Ganu and Priya were two highlights. I absolutely adore elephants, so it did not fit well at all seeing the chains on their legs. However, clearly they are well looked after and get to walk freely around the park. Bath time was marvellous to see. Nearly lost my camera in the trunk of Lakshmi!
The hospitality at Forsyth Lodge is first class, the food and room service 5 star. We must not forget the staff that are not front line, the hard working team behind the scenes. Their contribution is enormous. Thank you every single one of you for giving me a wonderful experience.....you have created a haven from the madness of the modern world and more importantly a haven and safe place for mother nature's gifts. Four nights.....I could quite happily have stayed four months!
Rishi, I look forward to seeing my images on your walls!
Happy New Year to all of you.
- 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
