The spirit of Jamtara Wilderness Camp

The Jamtara Wilderness Camp is ideally located in the village of Jamtara, at the foot of the Pench National Park. The Camp is cloaked within the safety of surrounding arjuna trees that tower to the heavens. The property features 10 grand tents, intended to elicit an airy and light atmosphere with fine views of the wide expansive landscape. The entrance of the structure is easily rolled up, inviting the warmth of the Indian sun and its glowing rays that illuminate the local artwork within the tent walls. Tents boast beds that are large and comfortable with deluxe linens, firm structured bathrooms, and private indoor and outdoor living areas. The décor of the tent embraces clean wood-lined flooring, antiquated colonial furniture, and rich Indian inspired tapestry, fabrics and brocades that follow through into common areas. The main building of the Camp showcases architecture with whitewashed walls, large windows without glass fittings, and thick wooden framing. The lounge and dining areas are large, colourful and furnished with a mix of colonial and art deco pieces. Adventurous guests can sleep under the stars on four poster machaans placed on high terraces, veiled from the elements but in clear view of the glorious constellations.

What we love about Jamtara Wilderness Camp

  • The great banyan tree rooted on a large dry riverbed, where guests can enjoy evening drinks around a glowing bonfire.
  • Sleeping in the star bed, placed beneath the open Indian sky, illuminated by glittering stars and symphonic with the melodies of the expansive wilderness.
  • The ever changing dinner venues around the property, creating different ambiences in which to savour the sumptuous Indian cookery.
