Accompanied by experienced local guides and naturalists, the Chambal Safari helps visitors explore the Chambal Valley at their own pace; on boats, jeeps, horses, bicycles or on foot. The calm and gentle Chambal of the winter is a raging beast in the monsoon months. The monsoon waters recede to expose the most dazzling white sands. The Chambal Safari Base Camp is set up every season on one of the beautiful river beaches. The Chambal Safari motorboats are stationed at the base camp, which is the starting point for the river safaris, camel safaris and nature walks.
The calm and gentle waters of the Chambal River are best explored on boats and the River Safari provides spectacular opportunities for viewing wildlife. The Chambal Safari boatmen are exceptionally skilled at cutting the boat engines and manoeuvring as close to the birds and animals as possible without disturbing them. Trained naturalists accompany visitors and provide expert knowledge on the Chambal wildlife. The River Safari is a most relaxing, enjoyable and special experience.
The Villages around the Chambal Safari Lodge provide an interesting insight into rural India. One can still find a potter at his wheel making earthen ware kullars (cups), a cobbler using the simplest implements to fashion and repair a most interesting variety of leather items, and shops selling all manner of goods from jaggery blocks to hand-woven quilts. The Chambal Safari organises short Village Walks allowing access to all this and more.
The Chambal Safari arranges jeep safaris through remote hamlets and habitations hidden within the folds of the Chambal and Yamuna ravines, presenting a fascinating journey through a world that is strangely as connected as it appears removed from modern India. The Bhareh Jeep Safari to the confluence of the Chambal and Yamuna Rivers is 90 kms (2 hours) drive from the Chambal Safari Lodge. The Blackbuck Jeep Safari heads southwest from the Chambal Safari Lodge.
Camels remain an important mode of transport for man and goods alike. They are also an ideal means for exploring the ravines of the NCS and searching for the wildlife that have made these ravines their home. Be transported back in time as you amble along long forgotten trails and pathways on these haughty beasts, with their snootily upturned noses and disdainfully curled lips. One may take a Camel Safari along the river banks, into the ravines, through villages and up to Fort Ater.
We visited Chambal area on a birding tour with Asian Adventures- The setting for this lodge is fantastic with extensive grounds full of wildlife and the management is clearly committed to conservation and running an eco-friendly establishment. The staff and owner were extremely friendly and helpful, we had great bird sightings at the lodge and the Chambal wetlands.
Superb hosting and excellent food, Anui who owns the place goes to every effort, drinks brought to you and all sensibly priced, probably our best 3 days stay in India, we saw Gharrials, fresh water Dolphins, Crocodiles many different birds plus we had an excellent guide, it was a nice stay in particular because the surrounding of the lodge already provided a lot of birding opportunities. A great place for birders indeed.
