“The Perfect Jungle Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2015

Where does one start to describe Svasara. The staff were superb really kind and efficient. Cool flannels and a drink waiting when you return from safari. Then over to the main room for tea and if you wish, talk to the other guests of their experiences. The rooms were of a good size and very clean.The food changed each night themed on a particular area in India. However if you wish you can have westernised food, because my wife does not like hot spicey they produced a specially toned down version of the dish. The safaris were well arranged and could be close or a distance away as you wished. The Naturalists are excellent and between them have an excellent knowledge. We left on the last day at 6pm to go to Nagpur to take the overnight train onward and we were given a packed dinner for the train. Just go let them know what you wish to do at the lodge and they will arrange a programme. You will be treated as an individual and not part of a group. Words cannot explain how lovely this place is is -- just go and find out for yourself.

There are jungle resorts and then there is 'Svasara'. This place actually symbolises the love for nature, sustainability and customer service in a way which is par excellence and rare these days. Where other resorts are out to extort money without providing value, Svasara sets the bar so high that I am worried I won't like any other jungle resorts now. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous and makes you feel at home. The naturalists working here are really knowledgable (especially Himanshu) and their passion for their work is endearing. The food is fantastic and their no liquor policy (though surprising at first) actually makes a lot of sense as the whole experience becomes untainted and simple. The safaris are well organised and the breakfast hamper is delicious, we dined like kings in the middle of the jungle! All in all, an amazing experience and needless to say I am heading back there soon.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your kind feedback.

Apologies that we do not serve any liquor at our camp. We are simply abiding by the local law here, as the district Chandrapur in which we are located has been declared a dry state since April 2015. In hospitality although this law does affect our customer experience, we are happy that guests like you still see a positive side to the policy...thank you for that!

Kind regards,
Ratika, Co-Owner & Director at Svasara

Tadoba isn't as well known in Germany as Pench or Kanha, so I was a bit sceptical about it being included in a photographic tour of India. But it turned out to be the best park in Central India and Svasara was by far the best lodge, mainly because of its proximity to the gate and the wonderful naturalists it employs. I got to see tigers on 3 out of 5 safaris as well as sloth bears and the more plentiful animals and birds. The lodge is a lot more luxurious than I expected with nice big rooms and bathrooms and wonderful meals. I would love to go back and highly recommend Svasara.

Nice rooms. Europeanised Indian food is served in Lunch, dinner keep on changing. I enjoyed staying there. Only problems I faced was during meals the rotis were not served as per requirement ever after so many requests. Another thing was, no one came to pick few bags when we came back from Jungle Safari. We were damn tired and it was really painful to carry things to rooms. Place is good, food is good. Hope they make note of my comment.

During our first and recent trip to Tadoba, stayed at Svasara Jungle Lodge and Resorts at Tadoba.

It was a great experience right from checking in to checking out. The lodge is located right at the gate of the reserve and getting in and out of the reserve was very easy.

The quality of accommodation, food and service were also very good. On top of it, hearing the naturalists speak about their experiences on Tiger sightings made our evenings very entertaining.

Definitely the best place to stay in Tadoba.

Room Tip: Rooms nearer to the reception ensure that there is a short walk to the exit as well as to the dining...
