Kipling Camp

Kanha Tiger Reserve

Kipling Camp was established in 1982 by conservationists Bob and Anne Wright. It was one of the first wildlife camps in India, and remains among the finest with attention given to every little detail. Our motto is “treading softly in the jungle”.

Kipling is the perfect destination for those who wish to relax in idyllic surrounds and explore the remote forests and villages of Central India. It is also the home of Tara, the much-loved elephant who starred in Mark Shand’s best-selling book “Travels on my Elephant”. Tara loves to be bathed and scrubbed in the Banjar River by guests – an unforgettable experience !


Attractive cottages scattered among the trees, with 15 double rooms (4 double-beds and 11 twins), all with ensuite bathrooms and rain showers. There are heaters and coolers and 3 of the rooms are air-condiioned. There is also a private cottage with a sitting room and patio.


The tariff includes all meals with a choice of non-vegetarian or vegetarian Indian and Continental cuisine.


Library, twice daily game drives, lakes, birdwatching and nature walks, village visits and markets. Bathing Tara the elephant. Massages, internet access and conference centre
