Jim's Jungle Retreat is a wildlife resort in Corbett national park. Nestled between the Himalayan foothills in the north and the ancient Shivaliks in the south, the reserve forest extends over 1300 square kms of grassland, forest, rivers and lakes.

In this fascinating landscape, we offer acres of lush refuge, forest and mountain vistas, countless bird-spotting opportunities and instinct-sharpening walks and safaris.

At the retreat, spend hours by the pool, at the jungle-inspired chemical-free spa or on your private verandah. A gastronomic experience awaits you with organic farm-to-table meals, cuisines from the Kumaon, the Raj and from the newabi kitchens of Rampur. Birdsong, privacy, and sumptuous meals are your personal luxuries here.

THE RETREAT

Property

Day + night drives

Jim's Jungle Retreat is a highly rated wildlife resort in Jim Corbett, India with eco-sensitive lodges that offer an immersive jungle experience to its guests in over 15 acres of replanted forest. Only 18 independent cottages can be found here among water bodies, grasslands and mixed deciduous flora from the Terai planted decades ago.

Water Bodies

Day + night drives

Several water bodies, large and small, dot the property with lotus, water lilies and other distinctive species of flora. These water bodies make for an appropriate activity area for fishing for kids along with their families and provide a perfect ecosystem for birds, insects, butterflies, dragonflies and turtles.

Bird Watching

Day + night drives

Corbett is home to nearly 10% of bird species in India, of which nearly 600 resident and migratory species can be found here. At the Retreat, you'll have a chance to see these magnificent feathery creatures. Our curated birdwalks within and outside the retreat will take you to the riverbed, the Machaan, along our Mahavan, Python and Bagh Machaan trails, where over 150 species can be seen.

Organic Farms

Day + night drives

The organic farm at the Retreat offers fresh vegetables sourced for our delicious ‘farm-to-table’ cuisines. The veggie patch can be explored by guests where they can pick their own vegetables and learn about sustainable farming and ancient techniques.

Dining

Day + night drives

The dining locations vary, as each meal is served in different locations at the lodge. Bush dinners in surprise locations among grasses and trees, under the open sky in a star lit night, up on the machaan; at the open-to-the forest Golghar or at the forest view café with comfortable sofas and unique à la carte food options. Arrangements for private dining are also available at the Retreat.

Cuisine

Day + night drives

A gastronomical experience awaits you with sublime mouth-watering delicacies from the hill hearths of the Kumaon, family recipes from the Raj and from the newabi kitchens of Rampur. The food is organic as it is sourced from the retreat's vegetable patch and village fields nearby.

ACCOMMODATION

Reflecting the area’s Raj-era legacy and that of the wandering pastoral tribes of the Van Gujjars, we offer three accommodation styles designed with a focus on aesthetic, comfort and local history of the area.

These include jungle cottages and bungalow-style lodges borrowing from their architectural past, with large wrap-around verandas, a living area, a bedroom and en-suite bath.

Luxuriant fabrics, fine linen and subtle detailing creates a comfortable and a sophisticated environment. Century-old lithographs and plates of Indian wildlife scenes frame the walls. The furniture is designed with extensive use of local craftsmanship and material with each residence uniquely inspiring charm and exclusivity in itself.

ACCOMODATION

EXPERIENCE US

The tiger is a good indicator of a jungle's health. The jungle consists of species that depend on one another for survival. As tigers monitor herbivore populations, they prevent overconsumption of flora. Plants in turn hold the soil, preventing erosion of precious topsoil that nurtures the forest. As such, every animal plays a unique role, visible or invisible, in the ecosystem that we call-the jungle. Here, we encourage you to “Seek the tiger, Find the jungle
