ECOTOURISM JUNGLE LODGE IN KAZIRANGA

far from the maddening crowd

WELCOME TO KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK

Agoratoli Resort has been the pioneer in ecotourism in the Eastern range of Kaziranga National Park from 2011. Far from the maddening crowd, this jungle lodge stands right on the edge of the park.  Built for the avid wildlife lovers, birders, photographers and conservationists, the primary focus of this jungle lodge in Kaziranga is on community participation in ecotourism and wildlife & habitat conservation. It overlooks the pristine Kaziranga landscape with seven rustic yet elegant cottages, a kitchen and a dining hall. Set up in 2011, this is the first and till last year, the only private lodge in this part of Kaziranga. Over the years, this lodge has grown into being the ecotourism hub of Kaziranga National Park, welcoming wildlife enthusiasts from all across the globe.

A bonfire in the tranquil atmosphere of this ecotourism jungle lodge sets up your mood for the evening. The orchestration of delicate symphonies reverberating through nature’s pristine theatre transforms you into an entirely unknown world. Wrapped in its lush embrace, you can catch up on the conservation themes in Kaziranga. By the time you retire, the minimal yet cosy cottages at this jungle lodge will induce a deep slumber, rejuvenating your mind and soul.

The design of Agoratoli Ecotourism Jungle Lodge reflects minimalism and the use of sustainable and locally available natural resources in sync with the surroundings. The architecture is pure Assamese, crafted by local artisans using local materials. A blend of bamboo, thatched roofs & mud creates the most minimal yet cosy and aesthetically pleasing ambience. This calls for regular maintenance, but that ensures constant engagement for the villagers.

In continuation of the local theme, the cuisine at Agoratoli Resort is again a reflection of the authentic Assamese culture – simple and organic. Local herbs, farm-grown yields & village-reared poultry ignites the cooking pan. The aroma of the sumptuous dishes will waft through the air and assault your nostrils. The aromatic and delicious Joha-rice, endemic to Assam, with an assortment of organic culinary herbs, stimulates your taste pallets.

Unlike other places, Agoratoli Ecotourism Jungle Lodge does not boast of amenities such as televisions, air-conditioners, fancy bathtubs, or liveried room services. The only exception is the clean rooms, toilets with geysers and tea-coffee makers in the cottages. It has nothing to remind you of the urban lifestyle you came from. The local youths from the neighbouring villages will serve you with a smile on their faces. As part of its focus on environmental protection, the resort dissuades people from using packaged, bottled water. Rather, you will need to fill up your water bottles in your rooms from the filtered dispensers in the dining area. The resort does not encourage partying and loud crowd or walk-in clients.  The best way to spend your time here is to engage with the owners to broaden your concept of the amazing biodiversity of Kaziranga.

What do people say about Agoratoli Resort?

We had an expert driver who could understand the deer distress call and asked us to keep looking at a direction and we were lucky to see a Tiger walking past after the day’s hunt. It went around a pond and was returning back to the den possibly when the sunlight was receding. Read more “”

I had the chance to experience the Agoratoli Resort twice rather than once. I traveled there alone last November and was welcomed as part of the family. First, I had talked to Bhaskar, one of the owners, about my trip to Assam. Read more “”
