The Ultimate Travelling Camp having redefined the concept of glamping in India, is all set to extend its philosophy of luxury to lodges and palaces, expanding its footprint with the launch of a rebranded luxury lodge experience – Jaagir Lodge, Dudhwa, nestled deep in the rainforests of the Terai, Uttar Pradesh, in India’s north.
Jaagir Lodge is all about a jungle safari experience in colonial style with all contemporary comforts. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, the colonial building built in the 1940s is a gateway to India’s four distinct forests reserves – Dudhwa, Katarniaghat, Kishanpur and Pilibhit.
Within close proximity of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve, the lodge is witness to the Bengal Tiger conservation programme – ‘Project Tiger’ championed by well-known conservationist – Billy Arjan Singh. The reserve is home to critically endangered species like tigers, Indian one-horned rhinoceros, Ganges river dolphins and fishing cats. The park is famous for tiger spotting and also home to half of the world’s 4,000 swamp deer, 90 different species of fish, gharial (crocodile) and wild elephants. The Dudhwa National Park, is located near Indo-Nepal border and within a 5-hour driving distance from Lucknow airport.
For the ultimate luxury travel experience, one can charter an aircraft from Delhi to Ballia airstrip which is just 12 kilometers away from the lodge.
