Shergarh Tented Camp

Kanha Tiger Reserve

Shergarh is a small, comfortable and friendly tented camp located close to the Mukki Gate at Kanha Tiger Reserve. It was established in 2004 by Jehan and Katie Bhujwala, a Parsi-British couple who reside at camp for much of the season with their young children. The camp is situated around a picturesque water-body that is home to kingfishers, cormorants and the seasonal breeding of hundreds of egrets. The 20 acres of land that comprise Shergarh was once completely degraded and misused which the owners have nurtured back to indigenous forest. The young woodland supports wild mango, jamun and fig species as well as a wonderful grassland that is home to a family of jungle cats. Wildlife has begun to use the property as a sanctuary from the surrounding paddy fields and include langur monkeys, jackal, wild boar and even tiger. The onus of the camp is very much on providing high quality wildlife experiences to visitors from around the globe. At Shergarh, every effort is made to ensure sensitivity to the environment and local communities
