Bandhavgarh National Park accommodation - Samode Safari Lodge
Samode Safari Lodge
Located in the heart of tiger country, adjacent to Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, this gorgeous lodge is the creation of the Samode family (the first to offer boutique heritage hotels in Jaipur, Rajasthan) and was inspired by their safaris in Africa. Beautifully designed and sustainably managed the lodge reflects the style of local village architecture while oozing warmth and luxury.
The main lodge is raised on a platform with a huge exposed wooden ceiling, fantastic wildlife photography and art work dotted all over the walls and an insightful collection of books on Indian wildlife, history and culture. Meals are taken in the adjoining dining area or can be served in your villa or beneath the trees for a private bush dinner. At the centre of the property is a swimming pool and spa.
The 12 elegant villas are light and spacious with both air-conditioning and heating, distinct bedroom and living spaces, fabulous indoor and outdoor bathroom areas with stylised paintings of wildlife, and a sliding picture window leading on to a private veranda. Every ‘mod con’ is there for those who want them but they are discreetly hidden away for those who don’t.
Best of all, aside from its many creature comforts, Samode Safari Lodge offers great service and knowledgeable, enthusiastic naturalists who will accompany you on safari in Bandhavgarh.
