Jungle Spa
The Sher Bagh Jungle Spa lies under the canopy of an ancient Peepal tree (Religiosa indica) providing it seclusion and privacy amidst the sonorous melody of birdsong. We offer a variety of therapies ranging from a full body massage to long practised reflexology treatments.

Whatever your choice, you will find the treatments a relaxing and healthy interlude in the midst of an itinerant holiday. Our therapists have been professionally trained by some of the best known masters and will be happy to suggest the right treatment to suit your particular preference.

Dining:
Arboreal lanterns adorn the pathways and campfire that is lit every night. Surrounded by acres of wild grasses and under the dome of a starlit sky, the resort takes pride on outdoor dining experiences where guests eat off traditional thalis while engaging in the jungle gossip of the day. Meals can also be arranged in more secluded areas of the Camp for those looking to spend a more private evening by themselves.
The cuisine combines sumptuous western lunches with traditional Indian dinners cooked over clay ovens. Moreover, the nourishing home-grown ingredients, handpicked from Organic Herb, Vegetable Garden and the Sher Bagh Farm are guaranteed to open the guests' taste buds to an entirely new gastronomically experience. Live cooking, in which guests are invited to participate, is an enduring feature of camp life and one of the most relaxing ways to round off a day tracking wildlife in the jungle.
