The alarm call of Spotted Deer & Sambar makes one realize that Satkosia is a Tiger Reserve after all. It’s the jungle of Leopards, Dholes and Wild Cats. The crocodiles basking on the white sands on a wintery morning, with the barckdrop of rising sun is a picture that is real here.
Feel the joy of spending nights in the Tents amidst the wilderness of dense and shady forests in your backyard. The whispering sounds of ripples of the following river, mixed with the melodic chirping of birds makes its way through your luxurious tents, rejuvenating your mornings. The alarm call of Spotted Deer & Sambar outside the camp makes one realize that Satkosia is a Tiger Reserve after all. Gaze at the clear starlit sky, breathe in the fresh fragrance of the wild flowers and experience the warmth of your cozy tent at the “Satkosia eco Resort”. It cannot get better than this for a nature lover. Go back with a smile and a sense of rejuvenation.
