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. Safari rides were excellent, thanks to our naturalist Anshuman. We were impressed by...

We recently had a 3 night stay at Samode Safari Lodge. It was from the first, a delightful experience. Priyam was lovely and looked after our every need and question with ease. My two children aged 10 and 13 had fun exploring the Lodge, the library and the pool (braved a quick dip - bit chilly this time of year)...

What an excellent stay we had at this safari lodge!!! Extremely luxurious villas, great food, great service. Nothing was too much to ask for. A big thumbs up for our naturalist Abhimanyu chef Hussein and host Priyam. It was quite cold in the morning. The wind chill in the open vehicles is a lot. Quite difficult to track tigers. We...

This is most certainly the place to go in India, the staff are unbelievable, the food is excellent and the accommodation out of this world. Game drive's are good but the guides although incredibly friendly, from a bush experience they should (all from different lodges) be sent to South Africa for training. It would put the trip on everyones travel...
