The Tented Camp
Only six safari tents, each set under the shade of Mahua trees gives you the privacy and space to enjoy the wilderness and experience the warmth of Indian hospitality.
Each tent boasts its own private wrap around veranda's with views of mature grasslands surrounded by our upcoming forest. Made to order safari furniture, wooden floors, twin beds with great attention to comfort blended with discrete lighting. En-suite bathrooms with modern amenities.
A private massage area in the veranda's with an option of a yoga lesson in the mornings is a great way to start the day in the privacy of your tent. The tent verandas are a haven for bird-watchers. Detailed care in every activity is what sets Monsoon Forest apart from the usual tourist experience.
Our Kitchens offer a blend of home-cooked Indian and Nepali food, fresh spice and vegetables from our organic gardens and local villages add that extra zest in our traditional flavors. We also offer a small selection of pastas and sandwiches for guests who may want a break from the 'constant curry'. Guests are encouraged into our kitchens to watch and participate in our meal preparations and our cooks would be delighted to share their recipes.
Meals are served inside the Dining Room at the Baithak (Main Lodge) and also (depending on the weather and time of day) around a bonfire under the Mahua tree. Meals may also be served in the Nursery or alternatively, guests may dine in the privacy of their tent veranda's.
