GREAT FOR

    Wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers will love this place, especially those who’d like to see the one horned rhinos, tigers, elephants and dolphins or wish to learn about the birds and the bees. This is an excellent getaway in the wilderness for families, couples and even singles.

What we love

  • Assam is a land thick with forest but its star is Kaziranga National Park and this lodge sits right within it. The property is split into various cottages made of bamboo and wood, all teetering atop stilts: they look almost as if they have been grown from the grasslands, perfectly harmonizing with the surging fields and forest that envelope the property.
  • Grassy paths and bamboo walkways connect the rooms, but here, all roads lead to the Machaan. Perched on the second floor is the restaurant that opens up to a balcony with a bar. As you absorb your chilled beer and chakna, a steady stream of cows and goats linger on the grassy riverside meadows below. And if fortune favours you, you may even see wild animals!
  • The lodge easily integrates the twin imperatives of luxury and sustainability. Its tastefully appointed cottages offer rain-showers, charming furniture and moreish home-made cookies. But what drives it is its ethical profile; the lodge follows a low light, low noise policy, employs mainly locals, recycles water and grows its own vegetables and rice in a verdant field nearby.

What to know

  • Most people go to bed early to be in time for the morning safaris. There’s no in-room telly or internet and all the lights are dimmed, an attempt at sensitivity to the surrounding fauna.
  • Take a light, waterproof coat with you. The temperature dips in the early morning hours and late evening and there are unexpected showers.
  • If you’re journeying to the lodge with an eye on the rhino or tiger, give the park a miss between June and September.
  • This is oft said but bears repeating - don’t wear brightly-coloured clothes or talk loudly or litter while on the safari. Kaziranga is the home of the wild - it’s imperative that we engage with it in a respectful way.

Kaziranga National Park

Open: October to May​; Best time to visit: November to April; Safari timings: Morning 7:00 am to 9:30 am/ Afternoon 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm

At Kaziranga National Park, nature plays out its grand tableau. At this world heritage site, you are sure to see herds of wild elephants, greedy one horned rhinos and gambolling swamp deer. If you are very lucky, you may spot a flash of black and gold - the stealthy tiger, prowling for its prey. Kaziranga also has otters, leopards, civets, porcupines, macaques, badgers, bears, sloths - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

Get on the back of an elephant to slowly tread the jungle and soak it in or hop on to a jeep if you wish to cover a larger area of the park in a short span of time.
