To visit the Bandipur National park, we decided to stay at the Bandipur Safari Lodge. It was a great choice. We got to stay in one of the comfortable and clean bungalows and Jeep Safaris were offered twice a day. The guides driving the guests to the park are very knowledgeable and can tell you everything about the animals and...

This is not really a jungle resort, as it sits bang on the national highway. At first look it appears very different from the typical JLR aesthetic, and on enquiry I found out that it was a KSTDC property, that JLR took over. So, poor things first 1. Location - as I mentioned, it's bang on the Bangalore - Ooty...

I paid a lot of money (that I probably mentally wrote off by now). It is sad how JLR property can be this bad. For 10K a person for what was called a special cottage (I am yet to figure out what was special about it other than the price) you get 3 meals and 2 safaris mostly where you...

We went to the Bandipur National Park from Bangalore (about five hours) and the trip had a little of everything to see, upon arrival we ate lunch, then loaded up for the park. The afternoon tour was uneventful, we saw elephants, deer, mongoose; an eagle and numerous jungle birds and monkeys. We went back to the lodge, which is rustic,...

Located very close to the Bandipur Tiger Reserve. They offer a package with meals, accommodation and safari trips at an affordable price. The cottages are spacious, at least the "special cottage for foreigner". The food was plentiful and served Indian style buffet with a large variety. A minus was that you had to order beer for the dinner at lunch...

I'm a frequent visitor at JLR. I like all their facilities and all their staff very much. But there is one thing that bothered me this time and I wanted to bring this up as I see it all the time in the safaris. We board the safari vehicle with very well experienced field personnel and naturalists. It is obvious...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once the private hunting grounds of the maharaja, Bandipur is unapologetically wild terrain. Elephants roam in large herds, deer stare at you brazenly and peafowl flit in and out as they deem fit. Nestled at the foothills of the Nilgiris, Bandipur has had a long tryst with tigers. One of the thirty reserves identified across the country to save the tiger and its habitat, it's also one of the last refuges of the endangered Asiatic wild elephant. The Bandipur Safari Lodge is your way of being a part of this ecological haven. ... more   less
