Chambal Safari Lodge
Agra

Just an hour’s journey south of Agra, amidst unspoiled terrain and local influence, Chambal Safari Lodge is a winner for those looking for an authentic safari experience. The Lodge is located within a 35-acre plantation of woodland and surrounded by extensive farmland. Each year, large numbers of indigenous trees and shrubs are planted to supplement the existing growth of the woodland, and to encourage a nature reserve to progressively regenerate itself.

Eco-friendly and sustainable, this lodge hosts thirteen enchanting rooms and cottages, with environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing interiors. The Mela Kothi rooms are typical of the heritage building which combines antique design with traditional period features, and the furniture and furnishings have been bought or crafted locally. Many of the rooms also have verandahs, perfect for summer or warmer evenings, where guests can sip a crisp glass of wine, whilst enjoying the harmonious birdsong amidst the evening heat. 

The lodge offers a smoothly operated buffet, stocked with locally grown organic produce, and fine-tuned recipes have been designed to tantalise your taste buds. But the highlight of this friendly and enchanting property has to be the evening bonfire; an opportunity to mix with fellow guests, sharing stories of the day and gaze at the stars in the inky blue sky. Evening walks are also highly recommended, accompanied by a expert guide around the lodge, nature lovers can get glimpses of jungle cats, Indian striped hyenas and fruit bats to name a few of these elusive night prowlers.

A stay at Chambal will be conscious free, as the lodge adheres to responsible tourism; eco-friendly and sustainable they also home a sanctuary where surviving habitats are protected for endangered species. Over 330 species of resident and migratory birds visit this stretch of river, and turtles and otters are also fellow residents.

Chambal Safari Lodge is a fantastic option, close to Agra but from the frenetic city, to give you the ultimate safari experience.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
