Holiday review by Mr Thomas Leys

Country: India

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Exceeded all expectations. We were looked after from start to finish and the whole trip ran seamlessly. The hotels we stayed in were excellent with incredible food and accommodating staff. "
 
Tribes Service: "We were kept informed throughout the process and efforts were made to tailor the trip to our needs. "
 
Guides: "All of our guides were excellent. We were particularly impressed by Dilip and Soona's local knowledge and restaurant recommendations. Anish and Samraj made excellent naturalists and showed an astounding level of knowledge as well as both being highly considerate people. "
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The safari lodges embed conservation throughout their business model, so we felt that supporting them closely benefited the local people and environment (employing local people, avoiding single use plastic, planting trees, kitchen garden etc.). In Jaipur we were taken to a cottage industry shop where we could purchase goods made with local materials by local people. "

Accommodation

 
Fariyas Hotel
Good location and food.
 
Kanha Earth Lodge
Incredible service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Staff were highly considerate, friendly and helpful. The food was some of best I've ever eaten. Excellent room. We love the attention to detail by the staff (hot water bottles in the room were a lovely surprise). Watching documentaries while being served freshly cooked snacks and drinks was great. Samraj was a brilliant naturalist. Deepak was kind enough to show us the vegetable garden. To top it all off, we love the company's sustainability and conservation philosophy. We'll be back!
 
Kings Lodge
Incredible service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Staff were highly considerate, friendly and helpful. The food was some of best I've ever eaten. Excellent room. We love the attention to detail by the staff (hot water bottles in the room were a lovely surprise). Watching documentaries while being served freshly cooked snacks and drinks was great. Anish was an excellent naturalist and we loved our walking safari with him. To top it all off, we love the company's sustainability and conservation philosophy. We'll be back!

Our Memories

"The Pugdundee Safari lodges were unbelievably good. Exceptional food, incredible locations, friendly and helpful staff and an environmentally conscious mindset made these two lodges great places to stay. From the hot water bottles in your bed in the evening to the personal walking safari offered by the Anish, our naturalist, the attention to detail in the service was excellent. Although we found both Mumbai and Jaipur amazing in their own ways, we were particularly fond of being near nature: every safari drives was different! "
