The Very Best
We absolutely adored our time at this lodge and with our incredibly gracious and smart hosts. Tarun and Dimple and their attentive staff made us feel simultaneously at home and relaxed, and also pampered and like we were on holiday. The very best combination!The rooms are beautifully appointed with every detail looked after, the food is impeccable. The best though of course, is the people. I suggest making an effort to slow down and ask a few questions and learn what you can from the family that runs this magical place. So much more than a safari jungle lodge awaits the inquisitive. I been all over the world in this sort of setting and have rarely, if ever actually, encountered such terrific naturalist guides who also operate at the highest levels when it comes to hospitality. One particularly memorable evening Dimple introduced my son and I by moonlight to an incredible universe of insects, flying squirrels and frogs hiding in plain sight on the lodge grounds. We really did have a delightful time scouting out translucent snowflake caterpillars munching on leaves, learning about spiders that masquerade as ants, tiny frogs living in tree holes, zebra stripe cockroaches, and how damselflies rest by hanging like sticks on branches. On another afternoon Dimple led us to the river. My son had the time of his life playing in the water, spotting spiders, birds and other insects and was treated afterward to masala chai, his new favorite beverage, made right there on the shore. Of course everyone is on the lookout for tigers, but we felt especially lucky to see very many gorgeous birds, and even a leopard. The most incredible thing I have ever witnessed, the way Tarun was able to understand where it would appear... I will never forget the light breeze, the sun dappled path, the silence, and then! the leopard on silent feet comes gliding out of the trees. Magic! Not to be missed!
