Bandhavgarh National Park accommodation - King’s Lodge
It’s just a short hop from King’s Lodge to Bandhavgarh National Park. The lodge is surrounded by a large natural forested estate so that you really feel you are deep in the jungle and there’s a watchtower for looking out for wildlife that strays into this buffer zone – birds and animals have no regard for such boundaries!
Some of the air-conditioned rustic cottages are on stilts, and all have a large veranda for enjoying the view of the grassland and trees, as well as air-conditioning and en-suite. The decor draws its inspiration from the vernacular with mud washed walls, local art and some of the wooden furnishings being of recycled wood.
Eary each morning and again in the afternoon excellent naturalists drive you 10 minutes in open jeeps to Bandhavgarh's Tala gate for safaris in the sal forests and grasslands spread over 32 hills. The tiger is at the apex of hte food chain and sightings in this small park are good. The lodge also offers cycling and walking in the wilderness of the park periphery, village visits, bird walks and picnics at water bodies all with expert guides.
Between game drives you can rest in the small library where you can find out more about the animals you have seen, look out for more from the watch tower or take a dip in the swimming pool. In the evening a bonfire becomes a focal point for sitting around with a drink and sharing jungle tales while storm lanterns light the way between cottages.
