Jim’s Jungle Retreat – Seek the Tiger, Find the Jungle

Corbett Tiger Reserve


Committed to responsible tourism with the active involvement of the local community, Jim’s Jungle Retreat offers its guests an exciting, educative and uplifting experience in the buffer forests of Corbett Tiger Reserve. Set in 15 acres that have been joyously reforested over 15 years with local flora, the retreat built on a strong social and ethical foundation hosts over 70 spectacular bird species even as deer and other mammals, including tigers and elephants, come visiting. Step back into time with meaningful indulgences of unspoiled natural landscapes. Stay in lodges reminiscent of Raj-era forest rest houses. Relish without guilt the farm-to-table produce transformed into delicacies using secret recipes of the Raj, hidden grains and pulses from the mountains of Kumaon, and country-style world cuisine. Over 30 years of birding and tracking experience in the Corbett jungles, cur...ated wildlife activities, and warm Kumaoni hospitality come together to produce an unmatched wilderness experience.
