We were keen on a getaway which is not more than 3 hrs drive from our place of stay. We stumbled upon this and the reviews from earlier guests made us decide.Wonderful place, very good facility, excellent hospitality and no wonder to note that the place has been getting frequent visits from some guests.
The whole experience was memorable barring sound from tractors and dumpers due to removal of sand across the lake. I am sure Karnataka Government can do something about it as we have very few good quality facilities like this. Still a great stay and enjoyed thoroughly.

This resort proved to be a wonderful weekend experience from Hyderabad. About 150 km from Hyderabad, through the town of Bidar, nestled right in the middle of a forest lies and next to a "cute" lake, lies this beautiful property of Jungle Lodge, Government of Karnataka. All the rooms are large, air conditioned and separate cottages in themselves, which are surprisingly clean and very well maintained considering distance from the closest civilization. The staff is very upbeat and helpful and took good care to make our stay memorable. All meals for the day were included in our package (Lunch, Snacks, Dinner and Breakfast) and the food was hygienic and tasty.

Route to this lodge can be tricky and goes through rough patches. Especially the last couple of kilometers, after leaving the road, can make you feel lost but keep following the cleared path and sign boards and you shall make it. Resorts has lots of things to do. We loved Kayaking and Coracle ride in the lake the most. Resort also provides black buck safari which proved to be a slight disappointment for us given the distance we had to travel to see the black bucks and the heat. It is still recommended to do the safari in evening first day and coracle ride early morning next day. We also did a bit of trekking and biking in the morning. This place can be more fun with large group of people. Even elders and kids would love this place. They also have star gazing and bone fire activities at night, which we missed due to rains. I would definitely come back to this place and would recommend it to all my friends.

Room Tip: Executive cottages are a bit expensive but provide very good lake view. Especially cottage 8, 9, 10. We stayed in normal cottages with jungle view but they were nice as well.

Serene ambience..
Approaching to the location was cake walk with Black Buck resorts boards kept at comfortable location. Size of the boards is around 1 x 1 m green in colour. Boards starts at Navbad, while going from Bidar.
Atmosphere : Great with peaceful surrounding.
Staff : Mr. Manjunath, Ramesh and staff were courteous. Staff for each activity is master in their areas. Like Bird Seeing person will explain all aspects of Bird.
Star Gazing person has shown all the planets visible on that day.
Overall very very nice experience.
Worth going.

Room Tip: Room no. 8, Excellent Lake View

entering into the jungle with my 5 years daughter to enjoy the weekend, thought when the entry into is so dense except for the landmarks to guide me to the resort, felt unsafe to spend the night, but once we entered the whole negative thinking changed. with no tv no music, no play ground area for kids, thought it would be difficult for us to spend there, but more then me my daughter enjoyed the stay, the warm atmosphere extended by the staff cannot be mentioned in words. special thanks to Manjunath and team. we had a great time, my daughter wants to go again, she cant spell the area name, calls it "daddy when do we go again to Beeer to see the deers". one who loves nature and wants to give his camera more work would surely love this place. thanks manjunath and team for making the stay memorable.

Sorry for the delay in writing this review.


We visited the resort for a team offsite and stayed 2 nights. Right from the time we booked till we got there and left, the team there took good care of us. Special call out to Manjunath, the manager, Raj, the supervisor, Ramesh, the bar man. They sent a vehicle to the Bidar city to help guide us the way to the resort. Once we got there they gave us the room keys and setup welcome drinks and some snacks. We got excellent service as we were a big group and Manjunath and team were all geared to host us.

The service was superb and we had no complaints. They were always happy to extend meal hours till we chose to eat.

The activities were amazing and the team enjoyed the BBQ which was setup for us.

The rooms were neat and clean. The quality of the food was also very good.

Overall a great weekend getaway and super staff.
