Reni Pani Jungle Lodge
Satpura Wildlife Reserve

Reni Pani Jungle Lodge is a rustic lodge located in a pristine Indian forest, on the outer fringes of wildlife rich Satpura National Park. The exquisitely designed conservation and wildlife focused lodge has been set up and is run by keen naturalist and conservationist, Aly Rashid, who was born and raised in the park. The lodge gets its interesting name from the neighbouring tribal village and the surrounding indigenous flora.

Reni Pani features twelve luxury cottages, and 4 newly added luxury tents for mobile camping trips, encompassing distinct local architectural designs. The Nullah Units, the Forest Units and the Hill Units are all built using local and indigenous materials, evoking that liberating feeling of being surrounded by nature, and are characterised by viewing decks, large lounging bay-windows and luxury en-suite bathrooms. At night the sounds of the jungle come to life and one really feels reconnected with nature.

The central building in the lodge is called the 'Gol Ghar', or the meeting place, notable for its unique star design, and features a social dining area, a bar, a library and a lounge set in its various corners. There is also a beautiful outdoor pool which is located on a bend in a nullah, giving guests a unique experience in the midst of the exceptional surrounding wilderness. Dining at Reni Pani is a social experience where guests can share their stories from their days out in the park, and each night the table and dining is set up in a different location around the lodge. The chefs serve up sumptuous cuisine including local and western delicacies.

The owners, who stay at the lodge, are extremely particular about conserving not just the Reni Pani forest but also the areas around Satpura National Park. The extremely knowledgeable naturalists will accompany you on each game drive, boating trip or elephant safari so that you can really get the best out of each wildlife and birding excursion.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.

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