The Chambal Safari is an attempt to acquaint visitors with a land that has retained its unique landscapes, rugged charm and rare wildlife offering great accommodation at great prices.
Chambal Safari Lodge - is an oasis of calm and tranquillity nestling in the midst of a sprawling 35 acre heritage plantation, surrounded by family owned farmland. The plantation is part of a much larger area that was used by the Zamindars (feudal Chieftains) of Jarar to conduct their annual cattle fair (Mela).
After decades of neglect, the Mela Kothi and its grounds have been lovingly restored. Ram Pratap Singh and his wife Anu have turned their inheritance into a charming eco-lodge, where their nine year old son Sumer is the 'chief naturalist-in-charge'!
The Mela Kothi now offers two luxurious bedrooms, a cosy sitting-room and library and numerous interesting verandahs and courtyards to read, reflect and relax.
With an eco-friendly philosophy, the Chambal Safari Lodge combines the natural warmth of local homes with the comfort of modern amenities.
The Chambal Safari lodge offers twelve rooms.
There are eight independent cottages with private verandas in the woodland around the restored Mela Kothi. The twin bedded en-suite rooms are comfortable, colourful, airy and spacious. Large windows allow fresh air and natural light into the rooms whilst the sloping roofs with canopies add warmth and charm.
The restored Mela kothi has two large well-appointed bedrooms with front and rear verandas and access to the library across the pebbled courtyard. The period furniture and furnishings bring alive the stately grace of this heritage building and provide a tantalising glimpse into an earlier era.
There are two small and cosy bedrooms – a twin and a single - in the restored Stables nestling under the bougainvillea creepers.
The Chambal Safari Lodge lies 70 kilometers south east of Agra on the Fatehabad Road, 3 kilometers short of the township of Bah.
The Lodge is a comfortable one hour drive from the Taj Mahal
