A wonderful experience. We spent four nights at Kipling Camp which is nestled within unspoiled surroundings on the edge of Khana National Park. The staff welcomed us on arrival after a three and a half hour drive from Jabalpur airport. The accommodation was lovely being spacious, clean, comfortable with hot shower and a veranda with a view over a lovely pond. The WiFi was a bonus although we didnt feel the need to use it. The staff were outstanding and looked after us exceptionally well. The communal dining was something which we approached with initial trepidation simply as it was outside of our normal comfort zone but was actually a highlight as it brought everyone together- staff and guests alike- so many wonderful people. We had three safari visits which were excellently managed by the staff. Although hot during the day in January, you have to wrap up warm as it is so cold at night and early morning. The hot water bottles provided by the staff for our early safari outings (and slipped in to our bed at night) were a revaluation! We had a surprise trip to a local group of dancers, only a short walk by torchlight, an impressive performance and display of local culture. Undoubtedly Tara the elephant is the star of the show with a character as formidably entertaining as she is loveable. Helping bath her was a memory that will last forever, as indeed will the whole encounter at Kipling Camp. All the staff from the drivers, guides, cooks, the waiters (they bring tea and cake to your room) were so polite and attentive. Thanks to our host, the renowned conservationist, and a lovely lady, Belinda and a mention to Archie and Georgie the volunteers who helped make our stay extra special. Highly recommended to those who want to discover, or re discover their spirit of adventure and as a bonus, come away with a sharpened sense of the value and imperative of conservation, and maybe, just maybe a glimpse of a tiger.

Kipling Camp is exemplary on so many levels. I could wax lyrical about the quality of the service, the friendly and engaging staff, the comfort and appointment of the cabins, the peace and tranquility of the forest setting, the great food and meals, the amazing guides or the camp star, Tara the elephant. But for me what really nailed it at the end of the day was not just the stuff that made me and other guests feel welcome, comfortable and thoroughly fulfilled but the commitment of Kipling Camp to locals, local enterprise and wildlife conservation. It was important for me to know that the 'local' people employed here to help run the camp are in fact local, with most having long term service and now regarded as 'family'. There's a masseuse from the local villiage who was sponsored by Kipling Camp to be trained in this field. The local troupe of tribal dancers who perform at the camp, and increasingly at other venues around Morcha Villiage was similarly actively encouraged and supported by Kipling Camp through their formative stages, and local artists also receive support and encouragement. And then there's the ongoing community liaison program that operates from the camp, working tirelessly with villagers around Kanha to identify and resolve wildlife conflict issues and to enlist support to tackle the important issue of wildlife poaching. Kipling Camp is essentially hard-wired to wildlife conservation in India, it's current owner Belinda Wright, is a legend in the field, founder and director of the highly successful NGO, the Wildlife Preservation Society of India. You'll find all the creature comforts you're likely to want at Kipling Camp, which may (or may not) be on offer at other camps around Kanha NP but if you've got a social conscience and want to maximise your support for the Park you'll be visiting then your buck should really stop here!

Last October, while I was traveling India solo for two months, I decided to pay myself a treat; a short holiday in my holidays to experience Kipling Camp. I had heard and read about it a lot, and I have to say that what attracted me the most was the idea of spending some time with an elephant. It attracted me as much as I was scared it might be a "tourist trap"; but as soon as I got there, and was welcomed by the entire staff who had brought wet towels for me to freshen up, I realized that a tourist was actually, in Kipling Camp's philosophy, an important guest. Everything there was perfect; being one of the first guests of the season, I arrived at the same time as some members of the staff, so it almost felt like I was part of them, everyone getting to know each other. Being on a budget, I didn't even experience the safaris in Khana National Park and I have to say, the camp itself is enough to satisfy your need for nature, calm and wildlife. And I think that as a French Canadian, nothing can beat the exoticism of having a bath in a river with a huge and wonderful elephant star, watched from afar by curious langurs. This, plus dears and birds and laughs and nature walks and bicycle ride, Uno games, massage, amazing food and village tour made those four days a lifetime experience. For this, I want to say a special thank you to Astrid, Jeswin, Alex and Nico and of course, the Wright family, who set this beautiful piece of heaven up. My only comment could be about the tariffs, which, despite the numerous and high quality services included, are, to me, a bit overpriced. I think Kipling Camp is an institution in India and deserves to be known by as many people as possible; this is why I wish it was a little more accessible, especially in the idea of promoting a responsible and sustainable tourism. However, now that I know that all profits are given to an NGO founded by the owner in order to help local communities, I feel like my money has been well invested. Kipling Camp is, without any doubt, tattooed on my heart. And so is Tara.

Trust my husband to find the perfect destination every single time! And that is why I never mess with the itinerary. He makes sure each day is a gift to me - who could ask for more?! Kipling Camp proved to be the perfect destination for us in celebrating 20 years of togetherness. The setting, the surrounding and everybody in it made it all worthwhile. I can't speak enough of the hospitality and the warmth extended at each step, those little gestures which made the experience delectable. Such properties are a gift amidst wilderness. The rooms, the water body, the animal and bird life co-existing with them, the food and the safari rides ... they have mastered it all!

Thank you all for an amazing stay. From the amazing greeting to the fabulous safaris and the highlight of your show the wonderful Tara. You made us feel so welcome from our late arrival to our far too soon departure. 3 Tiger sightings on our first three safaris thanks to your amazing (Rahim) driver and spotter. You made us all feel so welcome, lovely friendly atmosphere, fabulous food, coffee and biscuits with our early morning calls. Would love to come back and experience your amazing friendly camp. Thank you again x
