A classy stay at Bandhavghar
The Jungle Lodge fulfilled all expectation matching its reputation as one of the oldest in the region. It has perfectly blended the old and the new, with rooms still retaining their classical fittings, with the addition of all the modern amenities to make one's stay more comfortable.The staff, were by far, its greatest asset, especially for someone like me with mobility restrictions. Not only had care been taken to place me in a chalet close to the dining room, but there seemed to always be someone 'camped' outside of the chalet to wheel my chair to the waiting safari jeeps and for meals - always with a cheery smile, even when the unseasonal rains had made the gravel walkways a little muddy and one required an extra push along the short journey to the dining room.A sumptuous outdoor barbecue, served on a dining table that evoked reminiscences of years gone by, and a warning that a wild elephant was roaming the borders of the lodge, what more could one ask for on the final evening of our journey? A leopard had been seen near the Car Park by those first out early that morning, such is the Lodge's nearness to the Park.The Management, the charming Naturalists and, most of all, the staff made for a memorable, and comfortable, 3 days at the Lodge...a place to be heartily recommended to any discerning visitor to Bandhavghar.
