Jaagir Lodge is both elegant and unpretentious, decorated in a colonial-safari style. The lodge itself dates back to the 1940s, adding to the charm and authenticity of your stay. Privacy is ensured as there are just six luxury rooms and suites, with an additional two standalone brick villas that are perfect for families. The rooms are complete with vintage writing desks, canopied four-poster beds and plush furniture and accented with warm and welcoming hues.
Expertly crafted meals take place in the central dining room and include a range of inventive global cuisine and local recipes – you can even have a hands-on cooking lesson with the masterchef himself to take some gastronomic inspiration home with you! The jungle-fringed pool invites you for a cooling afternoon dip and you can enjoy yoga in the recreation centre. If you care to learn about the area’s unique flora and fauna, then we recommend attending a talk by one of the lodge’s expert naturalists.
Exploring the pristine natural setting is the pinnacle of your experience here. Wildlife safaris into nearby forested nature reserves of Dudhwa, Katarniaghat, Kishanpur and Pilibhit provide the opportunity to spot iconic Indian wildlife such as tiger, leopard, one-horned rhino, Asian elephant and sloth bear. Simply walking the nature trails of the grounds offers delightful opportunities to spot the many bird and monkey species that call the area home. Cultural excursions are also an option, with the chance to spend a day in the life of the Tharu Tribe, visit a Tanda Village within the Maillani Forest, and explore the Frog Temple of Oel.
