Jim's Jungle Retreat is a wildlife speciality lodge located on the southern periphery of India,s showcase Corbett Tiger Reserve. Nestled between the Himalayan foothills in the north and the Shivaliks in the south, Corbett extends over 1300 square kms of grassland, sal forests, rivers and lakes.
At this forest's edge, we offer acres of lush refuge, with forest and mountain vistas, countless bird-spotting opportunities, instinct-sharpening walks and safaris, and hours by the pool or on your private verandah. Through the year, the nearby forests host herds of grazing deer, root-digging wild boar, noisy jackals and the occasional tiger or leopard. During their seasonal migration, elephant herds trumpet their arrival and are sighted from the retreat's grounds.
We offer three accommodation styles, totaling 18 residences, designed with a focus on aesthetic, comfort and of capturing the area's history. These include jungle cottage and lodges borrowing from their architectrual past - old forest bunglows and rest houses of Raj era.
Luxuriant fabrics, fine linen and subtle detailling create a comfortable and sophisticated environment. Century-old lithographs and plates of Indian hunting scenes frame the walls. The furniture is designed with extensive use of local craftsmanship and material, and each uniquely-styled residence inspires charm and exclusivity.
