This lodge is just 5 min drive from Kolara gate. Great for tiger safaris both in core and buffer zone. All other lodges are further away. Staying here saves you from an additional bumpy ride before and after the safaris. Rooms were big and comfy, set amidst a beautiful garden. Meals were good homecooked food, either as buffet or served as a thali. Staff were friendly and courteous, loved the cold towel and welcome drink after each safari. We also had a great naturalist guide named Jignesh, who was very knowledgeable and made for great tiger encounters. Saw male Tiger Matkasur and tigress Maya in core zone. And in buffer zone Raavan and Junabai the tigress with her 3 cubs aged 5-6 months only. Out of 5 safaris we had good tiger sightings in 4 rides!!!

I visited Svasara Luxury Resort between 29th Feb to 4th March and enjoyed the sighting of Tigers on three visits and sighted Bison, Grey Hornbill, Mottled Wood Owl, Crested Eagle, Jungle Dog, Samba, Spotted Deer, Sloth Bear for a few seconds, wild Boar, Crocodiles. The stay was good and housekeeping was good too. The food was local and other cuisines too with lot of choices. Taste was good. Due to my flight schedule I arrived late in the airport and was promptly dropped a distance of 100 kms by Driver Gulabo with a smile. Ranjit had made arrangements for a late night snack and I thank him for that. Welcome by Ranjit, next morning who is General Manager was heart warming. Meghnad was the best staff to make feel one at home during my entire stay. Was introduced to Nandita by a school friend Sharmila. Electricity in the luxury resort is an issue but can be ignored as it’s quite common in other areas too. The Kolora Gate is 100 mtrs away which is the best part to book Svasara. Ratika, the owner being away always interacted with me on Whatsapp. I did safaris in three core zone areas and three in buffer zone areas. Naturalist with me chosen by the resort authorities was Rishin Basu Roy who I wouldn’t claim to be living encyclopaedia as has been mentioned in the website. He dozed off in the early mornings and late afternoons during the safaris and not all the time did he stop to allow me to take photos of endangered species or other wild animals. The drivers on all safaris had to nudge him to wake up as other jeeps people noticed him dozing off. This wasn’t desirable. Also his strategies for tiger sighting was always not accurate. On my first visit I was happy to visit Tadoba as I heard a lot and read in various places on the jungle. Would look forward to some more sighting it various wildlife animals and birds in future.

I arrived at 8.45pm exhausted after travelling from the other side of India, via Nagpur. The 2 3/4 hr journey from Nagpur airport covered all sorts of roads and traffic conditions. I was greeted by 3 enthusiastic employees who took my luggage and whisked me off to the restaurant where a cool drink, a welcome and dinner awaited. Everyone was very friendly. I had arranged to meet 2 of my friends from the UK here and they had arrived earlier in the day. My lodge was very spacious and yet cosy, with a veranda outside to sit in the shade. The showers were hot and everywhere was clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was a swimming pool and spar beyond the lodges but I did not use them. Towels were provided there if I had wanted to swim. There were sunbed by the side of the pool if you wanted just to stretch out. The restaurant by the reception was where lunch was served and where there as free WiFi. The bandwidth varied and doing a WhatsApp video link was a bit hit and miss sometimes. In the evening, dinner was served under a roofed area open to the surroundings. The food was varied and I thoroughly enjoyed it especially the packed breakfasts which were boxed and put in the jeeps before the morning safaris. We had to travel 40 minutes to our jungle gate as the one nearest the lodge was fully booked. It was a bind but not too much of a problem. The actual safaris were very interesting but it depends on your guide and driver and lady luck. The first morning safari we saw lots of animal and bird life, but no tigers. We did hear the warning cries of deer, but no sightings. The first afternoon safari with a different guide was most disappointing and we saw little animal life. Luck of the draw. However, the second morning safari (with the same guide as the previous morning) was quite something. First a sloth bear; then a tiger - really thought I might be a tiger breakfast at one stage; then a crocodile with a spotted antelope - we had just missed the kill. Added to that, monkeys birds and much more.( Wrap up warm for the morning safaris and hang on to your jeep. It is really worth it.)

We stayed at Svasara for three nights as part of a private tour expertly arranged by Naturetrek and loved our time here. The journey from Nagpur takes some two to three hours, giving a real 'feel' for the rural life of India and we were warmly welcomed on arrival with cold towels, fresh lemonade and caraway snacks. The bungalows are beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds (hard mattresses) and fairly basic but perfectly adequate bathrooms with plenty of hot water. All the bungalows are set in a lovely garden and there is a beautiful pool area and spa which, unfortunately, we didn't have time to use but which other guests spoke highly of. Dinner is taken in the Teak House - a lovely building with open sides and the food was delicious - a different soup to start, each evening - served in mugs followed by a themed buffet. Lunch between safaris is served in the main lodge - a slightly more 'institutional' style dining room but with equally delicious buffets. One of the main joys of Svasara is its very close proximity to the Kolara park gate - a mere two minute drive. A wake up call at 5.30 followed by hot tea or coffee and fruit served in the reception area allowed us to reach the Park a few minutes before it opened each morning. Svasara was the first of three 'tiger lodges' we visited and proved a great introduction. We saw three tigers whilst there including the legendery Myah. Yes, it is definitely busier than say Pench or Satpura (at one point more than twenty vehicles congregated around a waterhole trying to get a glimpse of the feline star) and occasionally one felt as if taking part in a 'Top Gear' stunt as the jeeps would hear of a possible sighting and career madly towards the point in question. However, there were plenty of other peaceful moments to savour the beautiful landscape with the resident spotted deer and langurs and we were also fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of a large sloth bear. Two points should be born in mind if considering a stay. Svasara is in a 'dry' area so no alcoholic drinks are available at the lodge. There is however a range of soft drinks including fruit juices and mocktails whilst loose leaf tea and freshly ground coffee are available in each bungalow. There is also a policy in Tadoba that no mobile phones are allowed within the park. Cameras are charged at 200 rupees for a standard lens or three hundred for a telephoto - the cash being collected at the entrance on each visit. All the staff at Svasara were incredibly helpful and friendly. We so enjoyed our three nights here and hope to return in the future!

This is the closest lodge to Tadoba National Park (2 mins drive away) and so it's location is superb. It is a small family run lodge, and very well maintained. The rooms are large, with a good bathroom and plenty of hot water. Thre is even ground coffee and loose leaf tea available in the room. The meals are all local cuisine, and thre is plenty that is not too spicy. Breakfast is taken during the safari, and coffee/tea, fruit and cake is available before you leave for the day. The is a very I viting swimming pool, though the water was too cold for me, and also a spa. The hotel does not serve alcohol, in line with the policy of the state. Everyone was incredibly friendly, and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
