18 Elephants invites you to our off-grid boutique wilderness experience encompassing rural and alternative adventure tourism.

Built within the vastness of the Madden family estate in 1890, the erstwhile hunting lodge depicts the mantle of 18 Elephants. It served as a warm-weather home in winters as well as a quiet family getaway during long weekends. Surrounded by 150 acres of Shola forests, the present Jungle Lodge offers a view of the Moyar Gorge, the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, the Bandipur Tiger Reserve and the Mysore plains beyond.

The concept is based on Maasai Mara, Kruger and Serengeti Safari lodges, offering sojourn in luxury African Safari Tents. 18 Elephants has a semblance of the African Safari experience mixed with Nilgiris’ own flora and fauna.

Our luxury tents are a minute’s walk from the Jungle Lodge, perched on an old terrace garden, the tents are elevated on wooden stilts made from the timber of invasive species of trees farmed in the Nilgiris. Each of our tents and the jungle lodge tells a tale of a bygone era.

Come, immerse yourself in the salubrious environs of the rich, diverse and cultural heritage of The Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.

Luxury, when and where you least expect it!
