This was our 3rd park but the first chance to see the elusive cats. What stands out is the extensive property and huge villa's, it was immense. They were attuned to the fact that the 4 of us had been on safari's in other countries but this was our first India experience with game drives. All the parks are equally gorgeous but this one offers the best chance at a sighting due to it's size and layout. You never feel like you've been covering the same ground over and over- the parks are vast and lush. We're a little early for prime viewing as Nov is barely underway and by the end of the month more of the lush undergrowth will start to diminish. But they arrange drivers to match their guests and in our case, he Really knew his skills with helping us line up outstanding photo shots. We would see another lodges driver race up and barrell full speed into a tree but fortunately our guy kept everyone calm.
The lodge itself is spacious and we wanted for nothing. I cannot begin to express my appreciation of the excellent care, breakfasts were beyond extraordinary. We were here 3 nights and had we stayed longer, I doubt any of our clothes would have fit. Truly beautiful, I've never seen so many butterflies. Loved it!
