We planned a trip to Bandhavgarh without much preparation and on recommendation from a friend we decided to stay at Kings lodge. It was a short stay but very pleasant. Nice place ..simple but good food. As it was not a properly planned trip we had difficulties with getting Safaris but eventually things fall at proper place and we could... More

I was brought to Kings Lodge as a part of my Zoology class. We came to study the vultures in the area and to see some tigers of course! I had an amazing experience and everyone was extremely nice and caring. They had amazing food! The breakfast is delicious and right after the morning game drive. The only thing that... More

A lodge where you feel the unconditional love for wildlife. A perfect team that surrounds you with the necesarry care and just that little bit more... It feels like home. The cottage rooms are quiet, clean and spacious. The meals are homemade and made with love. Veggies comes straight from the own garden. The naturalist Saket Shrouti is really nice... More

The second manager and naturalist Saket explained everything about Kings Lodge and our stay. the bungalow was excellent. We had a slight problem on the first game drive but Saket stepped in and arranged everything for us he even came... More

Kings lodge is a fantastic base to explore this wonderful national Park, the rooms are spacious and very private and right in the thick of the forest. The service was superb, 5 star all the way. We did 4 drives and saw 3 tigers up close and a glimpse of a leopard,the experience that our guide 'Naresh' gave us will... More

Whilst I can see why this has so many good reviews I had mixed views about this lodge so it really depends what you personally like. Certainly I loved the stilted lodges. Very comfortable and nice style but I did not like the thought of the 25 litre hot water restriction. This was the only lodge of 4 where we... More

My experience at King's Lodge was fantastic! The staff was very nice and helpful. The drives and guides for the safari rides where really good and always trying to find you a tiger plus any other animal they could. I loved that when we did get back from our safaris that there was always filtered water in the rooms so... More

I came to India on a school trip, and honestly had no idea what to expect as far as accommodations. I was totally blown away by King's Lodge--we were treated like royalty, with detailed, professional, friendly service, clean, more-than-comfortable rooms, and heaps of delicious food. Our guides and drivers were so knowledgeable about all the wildlife in the park, from... More

This lodge has all the luxury of a fancy resort, with the small intimate setting of a private cabana. The staff is the absolute best and they take the time to accommodate your every need. Aman, our driver, was top notch. He is incredibly intelligent and knows his birds inside and out. He helped me see over 200 new species... More

Kings Lodge was a remarkable place to stay. The staff were kind and hospitable, the food was delicious, the rooms were immaculate. We even had a member in our party with a severe allergy and the kitchen was more than accomidating. The naturalists that accompanied us on the safari drives were extremely knowledgable and made the drives exciting and enjoyable.... More
