Back To Basics (1 hours)

Caught up in your hectic city life, how often have you desired but not managed to do the basics in life – like riding a tractor or tilling the fields. We take you on a tractor around our village (you can also try your hand at driving one!) and show you the homes of our villagers. Experience how they live with little, but happily.

Teach a While ( 1 hour )

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to study under a tree, or use chalk and slate instead of pen and paper, much less a computer? The Tree of Life Jaagir Lodge actively supports the nearby School to assist in the education of the less privileged. Join the students as they go through their day at school and yes – teach them a subject that is of interest to you! (School timings apply).

One Foot In Nepal (4 hours)

Unbelievable as it may sound, Nepal is just a convenient 40 kms / 55 minutes drive from the Lodge. We take you via Gauri Phanta, the Indian side of the border to Dhangadhi which is the town in Nepal. Small shops dot the border selling their local brew, Nepalese food, trinkets and arte-facts.

Retro Rides

Time to bring out the ‘macho’ in you. Take our Royal Enfield – India’s offering to the bike-lovers and vroom across the mud tracks of the forest. You also have the option of being out on the wilderness, driving a Willy’s Jeep. Just a word of caution – there are no road signs or direction boards – your intuition will bring you back to the Lodge ! Royal Enfield / Willy’s Jeep

Trek a While ( 2 hours )

The Lodge is set in hundreds of acres of forest and sugar cane plantation which makes it an ideal base for a soft trek. Accompanied by one of our villager’s and your picnic hamper, you trek along forest swamps, through sugar cane plantations and through the forest area, loosing yourself to the quiet which surrounds you. Enjoy your snacks and coffee on the way back.

Explore on Wheels

Take a mountain-bike and ride through mud tracks in the forest to explore the surroundings for yourself.

Just for Two (2 hours)

What would you give to surprise your partner with chilled sparkling wine, evocative classical music , complete with a candlelit table in a mango groove with the silence of the forest around you and a canopy of stars above? We can make your dream come true with all this and more.

“Yours Again” Vows (3 hours)

Marriage holds a very sacred place in Indian society and renewing your vows in the traditional Indian way in a forest is something that will stay with you for a life-time. Singing traditional wedding songs, the village women escort you to the beautifully decorated area in The Mango Grove. The priest takes you through the ceremony, chanting ‘shlokas’ (lines) from the Vedas around the ‘sacred fire’. This is followed by a private candle light dinner in the lawns overlooking the forest with poignant music in the background.

The Chef in You (3 hours)

Delight your partner by cooking up an amazing Indian meal. Don the Chef's hat and with guidance from our Chef, you will learn the delightful art of Indian cooking and rustle up a delectable meal for two. We also present you with a Tree of Life Cook Book and an apron to take home as a souvenir.

Pamper your Senses

Leave the world behind once in a while - escape and indulge yourself in exquisite wellness treatments. Our spa experiences are a beautiful blend of traditional Indian wellness wisdom and 100% natural products. We offer you a combination of treatments at Terai – the couples spa

Excursion to Katerniaghat and Kishanpur

These two small wildlife sanctuaries are part of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve and are very unique, though they are physically separated but they form a satellite core of the reserve. Both are representative of Terai arc landscape and have great biodiversity. While Katerniaght is famous for the Gangetic Gharial, the Kishanpur is more famous for its Barasingha population and migratory and resident water birds.

About The Lodge

Tree Of Life Jagir Lodge, Dudhwa National Park

For nature lovers, a visit to the undiscovered Dudhwa National Park is a must. We just about guarantee sighting of the one horned rhino. In addition, you also have the possibility of seeing herds of wild elephants; the five main types of deer; crocodiles; wild boars; sloth bears; and the elusive leopard and tiger.
