Samode Safari Lodge Bandhavgarh National Park, India, India

This lovely getaway is designed around a series of individual safari lodges. The inspiration is South Africa, the decor and setting is Indian and the ambience magnificent and hospitable - unmistakably Samode. The Samode Safari Lodge is an fabulous place to stay in a wonderful natural setting.

Samode Safari Lodge has a necklace of private villas strung around the main lodge building. Each villa has an elegant living area with a spacious lounge, a bedroom with a modern en-suite bath, a dressing area, a unique open-air bath court and a private verandah with a view.

The Bandhavgarh National Park has a good network of jeepable tracks. The park authorities allow two game drives everyday on these tracks. The morning drive starts at dawn and usually lasts for about 4 hours. The evening drive is shorter of about 3 hours.


The main lounge is the heart of the lodge. Built on the first floor of the main building, it is tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. With a wooden floor, two large wood burning fireplaces and great views, the lounge opens onto a large wooden open air deck which overlooks the property. Read in a cosy corner, sunbathe on the deck or just nurse your drink while staring at the fire; the lounge will help you relax after the safari.

Below the main lounge, on the ground floor of the main lodge building, lies the pool room which also houses a well stocked library.

A fully equipped spa allows you to combine your wildlife experience with the therapeutic benefits of a modern spa.



Samode Safari Lodge offers a choice of activities. Take a dip in the heated open air swimming pool, work out in the well equipped gymnasium, jog along the trails near the lodge, go for nature walks, cycle, visit mardari village. Of course the main activity is going on safari on game drives into the park in search of the Bengal tiger.
