After more than 7 hours of negotiating tough roads and rough terrain, we finally arrive at Banjar Tola. The camp is divided into east & west camp each with 7 luxurious tented cottages and its camp has its own lounge, bar and dining area. It is about 10 minutes away from the park entrance. The staff are friendly, gives attention... More

Banjaar Tola is a luxury tented game lodge located on the outskirts of Kanha national park in India. The property is actually split up into 2 identical tented camps which each have their own kitchen/dining area along with 7 guest tents overlooking the river. The first note is that to get to these camps long transfers by car are required... More

My favourite safari lodge out of the 4 managed by Taj Safari in Madhya Pradesh. Excellent setting of the huge tents on the banks of the river with superb views. The camp is divided into East and West. The tents themselves are huge with superb bathrooms- simply luxurious as you sit in the bathtub admiring the views, animals and fauna... More

One of three Taj lodges we stayed in during a week's tour of the national parks of Madhya Pradesh - all excellent but perhaps this is the best because of its setting. The tented rooms (too large and luxurious to be called just 'tents') are on the river bank facing the park and the private outside deck is a beautiful... More

In February of 2014, our Tauck Tour of Northern India and Nepal included a luxurious stay at the Banjaar Tola "tented camp" in Kanha National Park, India. The word camp does not befit the luxurious accommodations. The "tents" were beautifully decorated and the bathroom large enough to be labeled a spa. Our room had a deck overlooking the placid Banjaar... More

There are good trips and excellent ones. Then there are those which can not be put to words. Banjaar Tola is one like a dream. The rooms are nothing you'd expect in a Jungle and yet so close to nature that one ponders just how creative these guys could get. From a little butler window to the beautiful deck for... More

It was our first family trip to kanha national park; and we stayed at banjaar tola lodge. Staying at banjaar tola itself is a great experience, which is a unique concept by taj safaris. The view from our tents was so relaxing and peaceful. The view of the forest from the cottages is refreshing, as the greenery and undisturbed forest... More

Photos do not do Banjaar Tola justice. The tents are luxurious, large, and so comfortable you never want to leave and warrant Taj/&Beyond branding. The patio overlooking the peaceful river below is so relaxing. Your butler and manager welcomes you when you arrive and when you leave the staff waves goodbye and you feel like you just left dear friends.... More
