We reached King's Lodge after a long journey and were made welcome. The registration was swift and easy. We were initially allotted rooms quite far from the Lobby and on our request the rooms were changed the next day. The staff are helpful and co operative and do their best to make you comfortable and that is a major point...

A very comfortable lodge with spacious accommodation. The food is very good with vegetables and salad items grown in their kitchen garden. We enjoyed the safari drives with Raju, their excellent naturalist and shall long remember the whispered "tiger is coming" just before a magnificent beast walked from the forest onto the track only metres from the jeep. The evening...

Excellent accommodation, service and amenities - if only we had the time to use them - much too busy on game drives! Food was extremely good and very well served. There were evening talks and film shows of the area/culture and even tribal dancing. The staff cannot do enough for you to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. Our last...

This was the second Pugdundee establishment that we visited during our stay in central India (the other was Kanha Earth Lodge). This offers a comfortable base for trips into the national park. Do take the opportunity to visit it, a superb experience (try to link up with Goda, a very knowledgeable naturalist). The cottages within the Bamboo thickets are raised...

You are in for a real treat if you decide to book a safari with King's Lodge in Bandhavgarh National Park. I spent 4 relaxing days there in mid March. You will be greeted warmly and will be well taken care of. Accommodation was comfy and the personal cookie jar was an added bonus. Each safari was an interesting experience....
