The Mela Kothi was once the home of the Singh family, who used to come here for their bi-annual cattle fair. In 1999, the great-grandson of the founder turned the Mela Kothi into an eco-lodge set within 35 acres of heritage plantation.
The Chambal Safari Lodge now consists of the converted Mela Kothi with 2 bedrooms, verandahs on both sides and period furniture as well as, 8 independent cottages set within the grounds.
Within the grounds and in the sanctuary, there’s a possibility of seeing; jungle cats, jungle hares, fruit bats, hedgehogs, Indian striped hyenas and over 180 species of birds. Explore the National Chambal Sanctuary on a guided river safari excursion, on a nature walk around the ravines and within the grounds, on bicycle rides, on camel safaris and on jeep safaris. The lodge can also organise village walks, a visit to the Bateshwar Temples, Fort Ater and the Sarus Crane Conservation Area.
