My family of 4 stayed in December at Kings' Lodge, Pugdundee Safaris. It was a brilliant experience all round. The facilities were great as were the team. What particularly appealed to me was how it felt lile home. Kudos to Amit and his team.

This is a lovely hotel with attentive staff and great service. We spotted a tiger within 15 minutes of our first visit to the park. The tiger made a half hearted attempt to catch a peacock. Great stay.

Wonderful individual cottages. Luxury at its best. Folk dance/library/souvenir shop/spa/gypsy rides into the bandhavgarh jungle. Courteous staff. Above all Eco friendly. Have no words to praise. Stayed at all the other Lodges also at Panna, Kanha and Pench National Parks.
