Unique Interlude

"Are you thinking of travelling India? Its definitely worth including a unique interlude at the Emerald Tiger Retreat and booking the safari package to see the tigers and a wealth of other wildlife in central India. Unforgettable!!"

A Great Experience

“From our bungalow window and around the Retreat we saw numerous birds, monkeys, a Bengal fox, Indian hare and many species of deer. A leopard was sighted around our bungalows once during our stay there.
Vivek, the on-site naturalist, is a wealth of knowledge about the local area and entertains guests at dinner with his animal stories. He accompanies the safaris.”
