Inn The Wild
A Wilderness Retreat — Masinagudi Jungle Resorts, India

Below is a list of our Policies; if you have any questions do contact us.

InnTheWild is a tribute to wilderness — please pay special attention to Wildlife Laws and Safety.

It is important to acquaint yourself with Indian Wildlife Laws as breaking the law could get you upto 6 years imprisonment.

The term “wildlife” includes – any mammals, birds, replies, bees, butterflies, crustacean, fish and moths; and aquatic or land vegetation which forms part of any habitat

  • Do not destroy, exploit or remove any wildlife from the area or destroy or damage the habitat of any wild animal or deprive any wild animal or its habitat within the area
  • Do not hunt any wild animal
  • Do not possess, sell, offer for sale, or transfer by way of gift or otherwise, or transport any wildlife whether alive or dead, or part or derivative thereof
  • Do not carry any firearms or weapons or injuries substances (like chemicals and explosives); exception to this are licensed-firearm owners; owners must declare their licensed firearms at the Mudumalai forest office
  • Do not pick, uproot, damage destroy, acquire or collect any plant (dead or alive)
  • Do not set fire, or kindle any fire, or leave any fire burning
  • Do not litter the area, use the marked disposal bins at all times

The above is a list of key laws, for detailed information visit the Indian Government’s Ministry of Environment and Forests website.

We are a smoke-free property. Smoking is NOT permitted in the rooms or common areas. You are free to smoke at the designated smoking area OR in the balcony of your own room. While in the balcony of your room, please ensure that the doors are closed, so that the smoke does not enter the room.

InnTheWild does not serve alcohol. Should you bring your own alcohol, please note that consumption must be restricted to ONLY your area of accommodation. Alcohol consumption is strictly prohibited in common areas of the property.

Possession, consumption, or distribution of banned or illegal substances in any form is strictly prohibited and can attract severe penalties/prosecution by law enforcement.

Please do NOT litter anywhere. It is against the Law.

There are dustbins provided in every room for waste. If you are smoking, please ask the staff for an ashtray for your room balcony/veranda. Avoid using polythene bags, tetra packs and other bio non-degradable materials.

Respect the nature and the beauty that surrounds you.

Pay attention to the prior briefing and interaction with local staff in order to make your stay safe, informative, and enjoyable.

  • Do not feed the animals or attempt to catch their attention by throwing stones or making noises, this can frighten them away or provoke them to attack — elephants especially can be very aggressive and cause fatalities
  • To blend in, avoid wearing or carrying items with bright colours; opt for neutral colours like brown, olive green, khaki and beige
  • Maintain absolute silence (especially while on safari); if you are carrying a cell phone, set it to silent mode
  • Never walk in the wilderness on your own; the Tree House and Tree Top accommodations are a little away from the common area, always request for a staff member to accompany you
  • If you want to take a nap in your room or step out of your room, be sure to lock the doors and keep the windows closed — you wouldn’t want any animal friends paying you surprise visits

Using flash during photography is strictly prohibited as it can frighten animals away or provoke them to attack, and also disturb other guests.

Playing loud music or making loud noises is strictly prohibited as this can frighten animals away or provoke them to attack, and also disturb other guests.

Bringing pets to InnTheWild is strictly prohibited as they can frighten animals away or provoke them to attack, and also disturb other guests.

InnTheWild reserves the rights of admission. One of our prime responsibilities is to ensure the safety and security of guests. Individuals may be asked to leave if they are causing a nuisance within the property, disturbing other guests, creating uncalled for ruckus or endangering the security of guests, staff or wildlife.
