Situated on the Kanha Tiger Reserve in central India, where approximately 50 adult tigers roam, the seasonal Shergarh Tented Camp was created to restore a badly damaged and misused piece of land. Returned to its indigenous woodland state, and now serving as an end-of-winter haven for langur monkeys, it is a place where travelers can savor the natural environment while relishing the comforts of their own tent (just one of six) in a private wooded grove. Meals are prepared from home-grown vegetables and feature classic Indian recipes, and hospitality needs are tended by staff members from a nearby hamlet. Working as stone masons and mud-plasterers, locals have also provided the traditional artisanship found throughout the camp.
