Central India's Parks camps - Denwa Backwater Escape

Denwa Backwater Escape

Denwa Backwater Escape is a small intimate lodge on the banks of the dammed Denwa River on the edge of Satpura National Park.

This stunning spot, with wonderful views over the quiet waters, grasslands and rolling Pachmari hills is just the place to come for an authentic wilderness experience in central India. Sitting amid 10 acres of private forested land, the lodge is mainly built of local stone and hand-crafted wood and furnished to create a contemporary safari-style design.

There are just eight cottages and two tree houses where local textiles and steamer trunks add a splash of colour and character to the interiors, and picture windows with views over the river. Each cottage has a private terrace where it’s possible set up a bed under mosquito netting for a night under the stars in comfort.

A selection of traditional Indian cuisine as well as international dishes are served in the restaurant or lantern-lit alfresco dining can be arranged. There’s a swimming pool too, perfect for a cooling dip between safaris with the expert naturalists by jeep, kayak and boat. Cycling, village walks and night safaris in the buffer zone are also available.

Denwa Backwater Escape also offers mobile camping and walking safaris for a complete experience of Satpura. Spacious walk in tents are pitched in a forest clearing or on the river bank; there’s no better way than staying under canvas to immerse yourself in nature.
