This is a classic wildlife experience with lovely cottages on stilts and spacious balconies where you can relax in the lazy afternoons and listen to the busy sounds of the wilderness. The pool is small but safe for children and those who cannot swim as well. The service is unparalleled - special mention to Saket Shrouti, the naturalist and manager... More

Expert naturalists, expert organisers, expert care givers and expert food specialists.

The location of Kings Lodge sets the scene for your experience in the wilderness. I was quite taken by the cottages located in the thickets of bamboo groves. Add to it the birdsong and the stories by the in house naturalists, you have an experience worth remembering even if there are no significant 'sightings' in your safaris. The hospitality staff...

The first thing that I noticed about Kings Lodge Bandhavgarh was the hospitality. Apart from the excellent property, with immaculate cleanliness, it is a place where the staff are well-informed and aware of the guest relations and their schedules. The naturalists are good at their job too. Apart from chasing the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger, I was lucky enough to... More

We stayed at this lodge in february, 2015. The staff were very friendly, could not do enough for you. We stayed in a very spacious jungle lodge on stilts, very comfortable. The food was really tasty, and the garden a haven for bird watching. The star of our trip was Sunny, the naturalist, who would not give up until we... More

one of the nicest wildlife resorts that I have been to in India. The rooms, the food and the staff are outstanding. They even have a small Spa where you can get a massage to soothe your tired bones after a long day in the jungle. The naturalists are excellent and understand your level of interest and patience.
