Holiday review by Katharine Sawyer

Name: Katharine Sawyer
Date of trip: 06/01/2012
Number of people: 2
Country: India

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Overall, the holiday exceeded our expectations and we hope to return to India"
 
Tribes Service: "Paul Cook was very knowledgeable and provided lots of helpful suggestions to ensure that our holiday was tailored to our interests"
 
Guides: "Excellent"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Particularly in terms of the local people, the lodges at Chambal, Bandhavgarh and Kanha provide employment. Tiger tourism is probably the best way of protecting tigers for the future"

Accommodation

 
Trident Agra
A good, 4 star standard hotel - comfortable room, nice restaurant, excellent service
 
Chambal Safari Lodge
Dushyant took us to a Hindu festival at nearby temples which was a wonderful experience of the real India. Food at the Lodge is all buffet style so it was often quite cold by the time we ate. Lodge grounds are lovely and the boat trip on the Chambal River was excellent - a not-to-be-missed experience for birders.
 
Tree House Hideaway
Great atmosphere - pre- and post-dinner gatherings around the outdoor fire were great fun. Food was superb - the best we encountered on our holiday. The treehouses are great fun but there are big gaps between the boards and, when the temperature drops to minus 2 degrees at night, they get very cold! Our guide (K) was excellent and took the trouble to show us the caves and statue in the National Park.
 
Flame of the Forest
Karan and Isa are excellent hosts and our cottage and its location by the river were wonderful. Dansing and Mohan are superb guides. Candlelit dinners are one of the features of this lodge but the lighting is too low to be able to see the food properly! The service is excellent and we would love to return to Flame of the Forest.
