Arrange for trips to the forest (pay in advance). Saw tigers. Bathed Tara the elephant. Excellent European food and bar. Went around Christmas, special decorated buffet lunch. Shouldn't roam around at night cos it's not a fenced in area and leopards can come in. Overall safe. Common dining place and meal times. Fireplace. Very cold in winter though.. the hot water bag in the bed sometimes isn't enough to cut it. Showed us a documentary on tigers too. Overall great experience. Price is a little steep.
