Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews
Everything about this lodge was fabulous. I imagine it will only get better as the grounds develop as you can clearly see it has just been built. The room was spacious and decorated to a high standard. The food was delicious, and plentiful. The location also has the benefit that you get to drive through local villages on the way to the park (seeing daily life). Our naturalist guide (Mahesh (spelling?)) while new to Pench was very experienced as a guide and this told in his approach and as a fellow photographer he understood the importance of being the correct side of an animal.
