Paatlidun Safari Lodge

This lodge deserves a mention purely because of the most unique experience offered by it at Corbett National Park. The Paatlidun Safari Lodge is the first of its kind 5-star luxury lodge with a jungle theme. 

If you could imagine what kind of fancy jungle home Tarzan and Jane would have, the cottages at the lodge should come pretty close to the real version. Each cottage is equipped with a private pool, cozy sit-outs, a sunny backyard, open-air shower, vintage furniture, and luscious interiors that you’ll find hard to resist.

The entire premises is built alongside the edges of the park, which means you get a very jungle-like atmosphere, and a chance to spot furry whiskered friends out and about.

Sharad Vats

Born and brought up in New Delhi, it was Sharad’s childhood passion to play cricket for India. While on a holiday in 1990, he saw his first tiger. Little did he know that this one sighting would immerse him into a realm where forests and tigers were all that mattered. Sharad’s experiences as a wildlife photographer have inspired him to observe the tiger’s behavior for over 30 years and motivated him on his own journey as an entrepreneur. He started Nature Safari India Pvt Ltd, with a focus on “Conservation through Tourism.” to align himself to the mission of saving the regal species and repopulating them in India’s forests. In 2006, he set up one of India’s premier jungle lodges in Kanha National Park. Sharad believes that there are many lessons to be learned from a tiger that can be applied successfully to leadership—both in business and in life. Here's a new book by Sharad Vats on management and leadership skills to learn from a Tiger. Buy now on Amazon
