Stayed at the Kings Lodge as part of a successful Tiger photographic workshop in March, 14 sightings. One with a kill and another lying in water! I highly recommend this lodge to anyone wanting a no hassle, well looked after, stay while tracking tigers. The staff, food and accommodation are first class. Just what you want after being awake for... More

We stayed here after noisy Dehli and Agra. The peace and quiet and attentive staff were amazing. We saw a Tiger on our first safari which was so exciting and lots of other wildlife. On our last safari we cam arose a Sloth bear, very rare we were told. Lovely food choices, comfortable rooms and the most friend staff to... More

Beautiful situation, lovely rooms, very hands on delightful manager. Delightful furniture ! Everything about this lodge was superb. Didn't make use of the pool as always out on safari but it looked sparkling and immaculate like the rest of the lodge. Maybe it should be called King's Oasis because that's what it felt like, tucked away surrounded by wilderness. Loved... More

We stayed at Kings Lodge for three nights in mid March. After visiting Delhi and Agra it was a pleasant relief to be in the countryside. On arrival we were met by Barum who explained the facilities of Kings Lodge and how the nature drives and their timings were undertaken. After a refreshing tea, we went down to our lodge,... More

Pros: Kings lodge is located in a beautiful compound, sharing a boundary with the tiger reserve. The cottages are comfortable and had a rustic feel. The safari's were well organized but we were unfortunate to not have spotted any tigers in all 4 safaris that we took. This has more to do with luck and little to do with kings... More

We stayed at Kings Lodge for 3 nights and the start of our small group wildlife tour to central India in March/April 2014. We were greeted on arrival by the manager and staff and introduced to our naturalist (Aman Sohi) before being taken to our 'rooms' - which were individual buildings set on stilts amongst the bamboo forest. The rooms... More

We spent two nights at Kings Lodge at the end of our two week trip through Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh--what a finale to an already exceptional holiday ! The staff were very polite, attentive and no request was too much trouble. The lodge itself was attractive, well laid out and an ideal place to relax between game drives.Accomodation was clean...
