“Amazing Chambal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2009

My husband and I actually travelled with our two daughters aged 21 and 24 so we were anxious to ensure that each of our stops in India would interest us all. The main reason for this stop was for my husband to do some serious birdwatching, but each of us got something out of this visit. The people at the lodge are very welcoming and evenings culminated in campfires where we would sit and chat to the staff and owners. Accommodation was perfect for us but we are all used to camping, perhaps some people would term it basic, but this is India. The Chambal River is beautifully unspoilt and the boat trip was fantastic and shouldn't be missed - one of my highlights and I think the other three would agree it was one of theirs. Mike says the birdwatching was wonderful and Danivere (sure the spelling is incorrect) as birdguide was invaluable. One couple we met up with had stayed a week, we stayed three nights which was perfect before heading on to Bharatpur.

The Chambal Lodge is in a peaceful locaion and run very well.

It is very quiet and many of the guests seem to enjoy the bird watching. The guides for this are very good and knowledgeable

As it is so remote there are often power cuts although they do have a generator set also. It was cold in January, but they did have heaters and hot water bottles.

The camel trip to an old fort was very good and our kids loved it. The river trip was OK and we saw lots of crocodiles and birds, but it was a bit expensive!

One thing to watch is the prices. The accommodation seems cheap, but when you add in all meals, and excursions the price gets very high. They even charge extra for jeeps to take you on the trips and for extra beds in the room which are already there.

  • Liked — Camel Trips
  • Disliked — Added extras making it expensive
