I have learned about Rhea and Shailin and their Junglemantra from Andy Rouse's book "Tiger". He refers to Rhea and Shailin as great hosts and conservation-minded that know what tourists want. I do not think there is a better way to describe them. Shailin, his father and the entire staff have been outstanding and I have really enjoyed my stay. In addition, if you are into photography, Shailin and his manger Ashish are excellent photographers and can help you out with a lot of tips and making sure that you always have the best opportunity to shoot nice pictures.
I was by myself on this trip but I take few photo trips every year with a couple of friends of mine and we are already talking about going to India next year and no doubt that Bandhavgarh will be one of the destinations and that we will be at Junglemantra.
