Wonderful location and food, but cold!


Maidens Hotel gardens

Maidens Hotel

India

Lovely old colonial building. This was a good place to start the trip. Excellent service and very good food, though we didn't try the big restaurant, because we were happy with fhe small (coffee shop, I think they called it) one. We were very excited by our first sight of certain exotic birds.


Rohet Wilderness Camp at dusk

Rohet Wilderness Camp

India

Chilly dining room, open to the elements! Bedroom fine - a bit basic, but then, it was a tent! But the setting was lovely and the service good. We enjoyed the mini safari and the visit to the Bishnoi villages (although this does feel a bit voyeuristic and intrusive...). Interesting wandering around near the camp: I saw lots of birds and a small herd of Nilgai.


Fort Barli

Fort Barli

India

Wonderful setting and interesting birdlife (and human life) all around. The food here was the least interesting of the whole trip.


Trident Agra

Trident Agra

India

This was fine and the room was very well-equipped, but not as personal a hotel as some of the others. Food was good, plentiful, with lots of choice.


Chambal Safari Lodge outdoor dining

Chambal Safari Lodge

India

Loved being in such an interesting rural setting. Chilly at nights and glad I brought my hot water bottle. Cold in the dining room at dinner time (another dining room open to the elements!). The wildlife wandering round the camp - particularly the Nilgai - was thrilling to see so close. The two trips from here, the Chambal River safari and the visit to the temples, were highlights of the trip for me. We saw so many wonderful birds, as well as river dolphins and two sorts of croc. Would happily go back.
