Forsythe lodge, through my memories at Satpura.
By Protima Tiwary
6 days in the dense jungles of Satpura, with no phone signal and Mother Nature for company felt nothing short of transformational.
Why Satpura? Because the jungles are relatively new to the public, and are gorgeous to say the least.
Getting there: Fly down to Bhopal, after which you can book a taxi to the Satpura region. Satpura is 5 hours away by road.
If you’re staying at the Forsyth Lodge, your transfer from and to the airport will be taken care of by the property.
I stayed at the Forsyth Lodge. I had an entire cottage to myself, with all the amenities that one would require while on a leisure break.
The rooms are well-maintained, cleaned regularly throughout the day, clean, safe and cozy.
There is a sense of comfort in the rooms, something that will remind you of a cozy winter home.
The package cost covers the meals and safaris, and they even book the safaris for you. When you set out to the forests, you’ll be accompanied by a naturalist at the property
Every mealtime is an experience with Forsyth Lodge- one day you’re eating dinner at table in the property, the next day you’re eating breakfast on a rock in the middle of the forest, lunch is being served by the pool
My personal favorite would be the morning tour, but there was something magical about the night one.
If you ask me, I’d say please take out an extra day and go for this experience.
Camping in the forest, star gazing, enjoying dinner by a bonfire, sleeping in the silence of the jungle and waking up to the sound of birds, water and a beautiful sunrise is stuff worthy of a bucket list.
Staying disconnected really helps you look out and into yourself.
