Its eleven acres of thick sal forest has engulfed the open sided buildings and rooms under its arching canopies ensuring an authentic natural forest environment in which to spend your wildlife holiday. You know it’s real when every evening you can watch flying squirrels glide amongst the trees. The lodge’s naturalists (or Tarun and Dimple’s young son Jai) take guests on walks and birding tours pointing out the many species found here and regaling them with anecdotes, interesting tid-bits and finding a large number of painted butterflies.
