Access:• Jabalpur Airport (200 Km) • Khajuraho Airport (270 Km) • Umaria Railway Station (32 Km) • Kanha (280 Km)Located within walking distance of Bandhavgarh National Park’s main gate, the lodge has been developed on the theme of an Indian village, with twelve thatched double–bedded cottages around an inner courtyard. There are two separate villas with further accommodations of eight rooms. A spacious thatched dining room serving home cooked Indian food and Continental cuisines, becomes the center point of activities like campfire performances, lectures and star gazing. The estate has meadows that attract deer and fruit trees that are home to birds and butterflies. An occasional alarm call from the jungle close by alerts you to the tiger on the prowl! Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge provides a professional resident naturalist, a library with wildlife books and magazines. Laundry services and recreational activities are also available – Jungle safaris in open 4x4 vehicles, bird watching, nature or village walks, elephant camps, and visits to the weekly market local fair or village schools.

We had a very pleasant stay because of the warmth and courteousness of Sadhvi and her entire team or family as she says. Always forthcoming in making our stay relaxed and comfortable. Ever so punctual in dispersing their duties and conscious of keeping in mind the privacy of the guests. Simranjeet ensured that we had the best opportunity to see the animals during the safaris and did the spade work for us in organising them ,for which we are ever so grateful to him. Sadhvi made us feel at home and came up with different ideas to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. It is a place where you would like to go with friends, family as a couple or by yourself.You will get your space and privacy along with a relaxed and comfortable stay.

It was so good to return to the hotel after not being able to travel for so long, and as before we were welcomed back like family returning home! This is our 4th time staying at the hotel. The attentiveness of the staff is unreal they are always on hand to ensure all your needs are met. I don’t think you will find service like this anywhere else. It’s out of this world! Great food choices again, Lallu is always on hand to look after us, the rooms kept spotlessly clean by Suresh and his team. Sadhvi has brought in some nice personal touches since being manager. She is always on hand to chat and takes an interest in ensuring your stay is as good as it can be. A big thank you to all the staff for making our stay so special again!

Yes you read it right, it was a pawsome vacation. The amazing experience of the lodge which was in quite near to the Tala gate. The experience was so awesome. The people were so sweet and kind. The food was delicious and we spotted so many tigers in the safari. 😍 It was just the right place to go if you want to go to Bandhavgarh. I recommend this place to all you guys who are animal lovers and would want a homely stay away from home. Must go !

The place is extremely good , the hospitality given by the staff , the best quality home like food ,they provide you with whatsoever required, the manager Sadhvi is highly interactive and makes sure you enjoy your best time out there . Indoor board games are also available to entertain and enjoy in your leisure time between safaris. One will surely feel an emotional connect with the place and will not feel good while leaving . I am surely gonna go back to the hotel again

We had been on the jungle trail for 19 days before reaching Bandhavgarh as a part of our Big Cat jungles of Central India trip. The icing on the cake was the perfect to the dot service by Sadhvi Singh, Lodge Manager, and her team at Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge. By the end of our visit we were more like family there. Every one at BJL, and especially the Lodge Manager, would make special effort to engage with each of the guests. Made sure their likes and dislikes were understood and then taken care of. What a pleasant change from our experience at Svasara, Tadoba – strangely the Lodge Manager there had remarked that he does not have time to gossip with guests as he has other tasks to do! Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge is one of the earliest properties at the park. The resultant advantage of being closest to the Tala gate is there. But then so is the negative of being a slightly dated property. Despite the age, Sadhvi and her team have made sure that the cottages are very well appointed and all creature comforts totally catered for. Their practice of organising dinners at various locales within the property including the terrace is a very welcome gesture. They even organised a surprise and welcome birthday treat for me! The last time I stayed at BJL in Nov ’21, I had given a feedback to Sadhvi that everything was fine excepting for the quality of food. It was so heartening to note that the team at BJL had worked on this with vigour and sincerity and dished out one of the most appetising and healthy meals in all our long 24 day trip. Without hesitation I can say that BJL leaves Taj Mahua Kothi way behind on this front basing my experience on the birthday dinner we had there. Not only did BJL remember our request of low oil-low masala but also had a variety of cuisine including a proper English dinner one night – one of the best roast chicken and mashed potatoes I have had for a while now. Shivraj Singh, the in-house naturalist, along with Sadhvi were a treasure trove of knowledge and we thoroughly enjoyed the involved discussions around conservation, wildlife, and nature. Will we come back? It’s a no brainer as we all felt BJL is home for us now. Cheers! To Team Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge and kudos to the Sankhala family for creating such a wonderful place.

This review is for my parents. They went there for their anniversary and boy, what an amazing experience. They were too happy with the hospitality they got and last min cake and candle night dinner which was requested by me via email and executed by them. The rooms, the safari arrangements, the naturalist with them, the good food.. They would like to make a special mention for sadhvi Singh ji and simranjeet Singh ji and other team members, there hospitality was top notch. Mom dad plan to stay only in this property whenever they visit again. Kudos to you guys..! Great job

The Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge is the best home away from home for my family. The place where we go and relax with a king size hospitality. Here a person doesn't have to do any thinking other than relax in nature. All the things are well in place without saying a single word, whether it's room heater, AC, Beverages, Food, Hot Water Bags anything which you can think off in a home away from home. This place is so lively and full of positive energy. All credit goes to Pushpendra Ji and her Daughter-in-Law Sadhvi Singh for managing the things so well, who have an efficient and effective team, which is pro-active in their duties. Rooms are excellently managed, and hygiene has been given the utmost priority all the time. The kids have an excellent play area, which we miss in big cities, which are can only find in forest. The dining hall a multipurpose area, where we can sit for all day read books, chit chat, watch birds and many more. The Jhoola was my kids centre point of attraction, she always wanted to be on it even during food time. The BJL's USP is their Location, Hospitality and especially when it comes to food, it's the best. A special thanks to Shiv for knowledge sharing with kids. He has many stories for kids. He is full of energy, whenever you find him, he makes you feel boosted up with his love towards nature. Arrangement of campfires with awesome food A special thanks to Pushpendra ji, Sadhvi ji and the entire team for making our visit and stay a lifelong memory, especially for our kid with their hospitality and home feeling. We are again going to visit BJL soon.

This was my first trip to Bandhavgarh and indeed Jungle lodge made it very special . As you enter the property you are made to feel comfortable and at home within seconds . Rooms - The cottages are beautifully done up . Neat and clean rooms with all the basic facilities required in the jungle . Food - The food was excellent , homely non oily, not very spicy . You can make out that the food is made with a lot of love and good ingredients . An amazing spread /variety everyday . Hospitality is definitely their USP . Lallu bhaiya and his team were spectacular . We always had our jeep well set up before a safari , hot water bottles in place , breakfast was packed neatly and they knew our prefrences which gave it a personal touch . A special shout out to Sadhvi and Shiv for going out of their way and making our stay super special ♥ What a way to begin 2022 Thank you so much for your lovely hospitality !
