Ker & Downey's oldest camp, and possibly its loveliest, lies in a vast palm-dotted area in the heart of the northern delta. Surrounded by lagoons and waterways encrusted with white, yellow, and purple water lilies, and home to hundreds of birds, it's also home to lots of game. Your large tent, outfitted with wing-back chairs, an armoire, and chests with leather straps, has polished wooden floors both inside and outside on your viewing deck. Spacious bathrooms have
brass fittings and walk-in showers. A spiraling wooden ramp connects the dining area, built high in the trees at the top of the lodge, with a lookout deck and lounge in the middle and a boma under huge old trees at the bottom. If you want even more exclusivity and private pampering, opt for Shinde Enclave, which accommodates up to six guests with a private guide and waiter.
