The lodge is beautiful and the rooms are amazing. But what makes the Samode Safari Lodge so wonderful is the...

We spent 3 nights at Samode Lodge and had an unbelievable experience. The lodge is beautiful with only 12 Villas. The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. Every night we were met at our Villa and escorted to a different venue for a unique dinning experience. We loved our Naturalist Karan, he was very informative and worked hard for us...

Some might say a little OTT for a safari lodge esp those, like us, accustomed to more rustic safari experiences but after a raw few days in Varanasi, we loved every luxurious moment ! Public areas are also very...

Our 3 night stay in Jan 2017 was just perfect. The attention to detail & the service was second to none. The food was great & each night the dinner location was a 'surprise'. They supplied ponchos & hot water bottles for the early morning drives because it was cold being driven along in the open jeeps. The mid morning...

Staying at Samode was an amazing experience! Out of the whole trip which altogether lasted 12 days (inc. Mumbai, Delhi, Goa and Agra) this was by far our favorite place! The staff was always one step ahead with hot water bottles ready for morning safari and bowl of hot water ready when we came back. The food was amazing, everyday...

Staying at Samode Safari Lodge is an experience of a lifetime. We will always remember our trip there. This is a luxury resort in every sense of the word “luxury.” We stayed at the lodge for three nights with our two kids 10 and 7 years old.
