Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 January 2017

We were a group of six friends, who have known each other for over 55 years.We meet at least once a year(minus wives) and love the forest and its inhabitants - the tiger being our favourite animal. Hence, the trip is usually to a tiger reserve and this time we selected Bandhavgarh.
All were delighted with the visit.The rooms with bathrooms ensuite, were very clean & comfortable.We had a verandah and were surrounded by green, with the forest visible from the rooms.The staff were efficient and courteous.
The food was good and thankfully not rich or over spiced. Very similar to good 'home food'.
The safaris were well organized and we had two good and knowledgeable drivers Dhangiri & Simran.On the first day we sighted a pair of leopards and on the third day 3 tiger cubs (18 months old).Besides these sightings, we saw deer,bison, wild boar, hyenas, jackals,wild dogs and a huge variety of birds.
Will always recommend the Lodge to our friends.It is not a 5 star resort but most comfortable and enjoyable for a trip to Bandhavgarh.
We preferred the Tala zone at the park as it had better roads, was less dusty and we saw the most wildlife in this area.

The Bandhavegarh Jungle Lodge is a peaceful lodge, with great amenities, excellent food, extremely attentive service, and a wonderful naturalist, Mr. Simranjit Singh. I only stayed for 3 nights, but wish I had stayed longer. Anything that we wanted was available to us, and the Lodge was a grateful break from busy India. Mr. Simranjit Singh took us on two long walks around the village and the road bordering the national park, and is a wealth of information, particularly about wildlife, tigers, and the park. We didn't see much on our first morning safari, because the fog that persisted the whole time gave only about 15 feet visibility, but the lodge was able to book a second safari the same day, where we were lucky to see a sloth bear, and two ten month old tigers! Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: If going in the winter, ask if your bungalow or room can be in the sun --- gets cold at night.

We were 5 adults and had stayed here for 2 nights in room nis 19 & 20. The stay started with a great reception by Mr Vijay and he then introduced us to the fantastic and interesting young man Mr Simranjit. Simran took care of virtually all things and planned our stay and the safaris. The food was just excellent and retired in the warmth of our beds, thanks to the unique idea of slipping in hot water bags under the blankets to keep the bed warm.
Simran drove us to the safari and had arranged for a lovely breakfast in the middle of the jungle. His honed skills in reading the calls perfectly helped us with our sightings of the the king... We were also led to a brief walk in the afternoon when he explained us a lot of the jungle secrets with dos and donts. All in all aexcellent young man with a lot of passion for wild life.
A special mention goes to the people handling the returant and they were just awesome. Yadav was overly caring and understood our taste and likings and prepared food to surprise us with the fascinating taste.
Met a couple of european tourists at the Lodge and spend real good time with them. Even they seemed to have fallen for the place and Mr Vijay.
All in all a lovely place, close to the Tala gate, with clean rooms, warm beds and excellent showers accompanied by 24x7 hot water.
Strongly recommended and would definitely stay them during my next visit.
Thanks Simran, Vijay and Yadav. A warm thank you to everbody else including the person who used to wake us up at 4.30 along with the tea for our safaris.

Room Tip: Excellent place with clean bathroom and great beds and awesome food. The best thing about this place...

We stayed there oct.16-18,2016. An excellent place to stay, very good food, courteous staff, nothing was too much for them. Our Park Safari Guide, Dharma Giri, very knowledgeable and would not give up until we saw a Tiger, which we did. Many thanks to his persistence, make sure you get him at your next visit.
Highly enjoyed our Stay at the Lodge and visit of the Park

Room Tip: With a view and close to Restaurant

The jungle lodge isn't really a hotel but the individual bungalows are well equipped and very comfortable. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. The food was excellent, authentic without being too spicy. The location is great being close to the park entrance and our jeep safaris were very well organised. Our naturalist Giri was very knowledgeable and good fun. A wonderful way to experience Indian wild life and if you are lucky see a tiger. Highly recommended
