The Jungle Book comes to life!
TAKE A GLANCE AT THESE FANCY CAMPS…
With ‘The Jungle Book’ currently revelling in red carpet glory, we’d like to take a moment to remember the godfather of colonial jungle days, Rudyard Kipling, and the setting for his magical childhood classic, the Kanha Tiger Reserve – one of India’s most iconic wildlife destinations. Although home to Indian Wolf, ‘Baloo’ the sloth bear, leopard and even the elusive Indian pangolin, it is best known for its thriving tiger population, proving that Shere Kahn, the king of the jungle, really does reign on.

Of course India’s jungles are just the beginning – rainforests are found on every continent across the globe, except Antarctica, and whilst covering just 2% of the earth’s surface they host more than 50% of its flora and fauna. They are secretive, enchanted havens where lilies grow big enough to swallow you whole, cats slink through sultry undergrowth, bird-eating spiders lurk in the shadows, isolated tribes remain ‘undiscovered’ for centuries and a cacophony of bird life and clouds of butterflies rise through the canopy in all their colourful brilliance.

Any venture into the jungle ignites a wide-eyed sense of childhood wonder – truly the stuff of fairytales.
