Jim’s Jungle Retreat
Corbett National Park

Corbett Tiger Reserve, established in 1936 by conservationist Jim Corbett as Asia’s first conservation effort, is home to the rustic and wonderfully peaceful Jim’s Jungle Retreat. Corbett Tiger Reserve is a protected forest which extends over 1,300 square kilometres of grassland, forest, rivers and lakes. Nestled within the thick Indian jungle in the Himalayan foothills, this retreat is the perfect location for safari, birding and wildlife lovers who enjoy the little luxury touches which make staying here such an unforgettable experience.

The lodge comprises of three luxurious accommodation categories; the Jungle Lodge, Jungle Cottage and Family Cottage meaning that all groups and families can be catered for with ease. The furniture and interior design is true to its surroundings, visibly making use of the local craftsmanship to achieve a homely and authentic feel. The rooms are most spacious, and the staff at Jim’s Jungle are wonderfully attentive yet discreet, providing guests with the best possible service.

Surrounded by unbeatable forest and mountain vistas, the retreat is best known for its safari itineraries, and countless bird-spotting opportunities and instinct-sharpening walks and safaris are accompanied by the lodge’s qualified and extremely knowledgeable guides. For guests looking for activities beyond safari and wildlife watching, there is a photography workshop, as well as an exciting tree planting project which involves guests directly with the retreat’s admirable devotion towards environmental sustainability.

When guests aren’t tiger tracking in the jungle, they can relax by the waterhole-esque swimming pool, where refreshments are served throughout the day. Or head to the chemical-free, jungle inspired spa, the perfect place to ease up your muscles after those tense and exciting safari moments. In the evenings guests can relax in the Gujjar style lounge, where slide shows and topical discussions on wildlife conservation are held. The open dining room is guaranteed to take you on an Indian culinary journey; there is an organic kitchen garden and farm which produces the freshest cuisine inspired by the Kumaon, the Raj and the newabi kitchens of Rampur.

A mythological journey, Jim’s Jungle Retreat takes you to the heart of the Indian jungle and is everything you could hope for in a safari lodge.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

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
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 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
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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
