I found the resort a very relaxing and homely place after a tiring safari in the peak summers of Bandhavgarh.
Everything from the friendly and helpful staff and great food hardly left any place for complaints. The staff was very co-operative right from with our morning tea/coffee which was served at 4 am as per our request.
There is no television in any of the rooms and we like it that way during safaris, Best to spend your time in between safaris exploring the birds in the property.
There was great birding in the gardens of the resort itself with birds like Paradise flycatchers, Orioles, Bee eaters, grey Hornbills, Sunbirds etc.
Another major advantage of staying here is perhaps it is the closest resort to Tala zone so your vehicle is normally the first one in queue for the forest entry.
For those flying to/from Jabalpur - Tala is around 4 hrs drive from Jabalpur/Airport. The flight from Mumbai (Spice Jet) arrives ar Jabalpur aroung 1815 hrs so you will reach the resort at around 2230 hrs and take the early morning safari (pickup at 04:30 hrs). Similarly while departing we left the hotel at 04:30 am and reached the Jabalpur Airport at 08:00 am for the 10:05 hrs flight to Mumbai.
Safaris: All our safari trips were booked by us on the MP govt. onlne portal and the vehicles were arranged by Salimbhai. Morning safaris in summer are from 05:15 hrs to 09:15 hrs and evening safaris from 1600 hrs to 1900 hrs. We had taken 8 safari trips 4 to tala & 4 to Magadhi zones. This year 2014 the tiger sighting is equally good in both zones.
