After spending 3 nights there, we felt at home. The manager and the staff are so friendly and helpful, we were able to sit and chat with several of them. The boxed breakfasts were wonderful, and they were kind enough to make us a box lunch when we left. Our room was large and beautifully done, and very comfortable. By far the best part was the game drives. We got so many great pictures of animals and birds. Riding the elephant was a real joy and surprisingly comfortable. But the best thing that happened in our whole 3-week tour of India was getting to play with an 18-day-old baby elephant. Our naturalist Bu was great. We enjoyed this park more than the others we visited and highly recommend it. The only disappointment was that the Lodge is just off the noisy highway - do not expect to be in a remote area.
