KIPLING CAMP is the perfect destination for those who wish to relax in idyllic surrounds and explore the remote forests and villages of central India. Established in 1982 by a family of conservationists on the edge of Kanha National Park, Over the years, the Camp has moved gently with the times, without spoiling its magical atmosphere. Kipling Camp serves a legacy of conservation and a firm ethos of ‘treading softly’ in the forest environs of Kanha.
Kipling Camp is set close to the Kisli side and is the perfect access to the Kanha and Kisli zones of the national park.

The rooms have twin or double beds, tea and coffee making facilities, and tiled ensuite bathrooms with showers.
