Jim’s Jungle Retreat is a highly rated wildlife lodge in Corbett National Park and was founded with the idea of encouraging local employment, sustain conservation ideas and help city dwellers fall in love with the forest. Only 18 independent cottages can be found here among water bodies, grasslands and mixed deciduous flora from the Terai planted decades ago. Reflecting the area’s Raj-era legacy and that of the wandering pastoral tribes of the Van Gujjars, the lodge offer three accommodation styles designed with a focus on aesthetic, comfort and local history of the area. These include jungle cottages and bungalow-style lodges borrowing from their architectural past, with large wrap-around verandas, a living area, a bedroom and en-suite bath. At the retreat, spend hours by the pool, at the jungle-inspired chemical-free spa or on your private verandah. A gastronomic experience awaits you with organic farm-to-table meals, cuisines from the Kumaon, the Raj and from the newabi kitchens of Rampur. Birdsong, privacy, and sumptuous meals are your personal luxuries here.
