Just got back from a fantastic trip to Bandhavgarh!! We had the great fortune of staying at one of the loveliest places I have visited: Tigergarh Resort. Such beautifully done up rooms, excellent decor, excellent locales, excellent food, topping it all up a fantastic host and his unbelievably polite staff!!

We could not have asked for a better holiday!! Gagan Gahlot is a true-blue wildlife enthusiast and we wish his team and him more and more success!! We're definitely going back!! And all of you reading this will miss out if you don't visit here :) :)

We had recently been on a 3N/4D trip to Bandhavgarh in the hope of finding the apex predator of the Indian Jungle. The tigers no doubt mesmerized us, what made the trip a one to remember was the stay at Tigergarh. I have no doubt in my mind that Tigergarh has been the best place that i have ever stayed in all my wildlife trips. The single most reason for this is Gagan. He is a complete hands on owner-cum-manager of the resort and never leaves anything to chance. He is always there to personally supervise everything (food menu, arranging jeeps for safaris etc). On the first morning since we did not have a morning safari, he took us on a walk to the nearby village. What adds to the charm of the resort is its location. I personally like to stay close to the jungle on the fringes to hear the sounds of nature. Tigergarh is perfectly located in this sense. We sighted 7 different tigers during the 4 safari drives and the major share of the credit for this goes to our driver. It was Gagan's recommended driver and i was so pleased with him. I would personally recommend Tigergarh to anyone who is planning a trip to Bandhavgarh. I am surely returning back to Tigergarh in future. If it is Bandhavgarh, it has to be Tigergarh.

Room Tip: Leave it to Gagan. All the cottages are well located

The first thing to note - Tigergarh is Owner Operated. Gagan is a passionate wildlife advocate, and he moved here to start this lodge 5 years ago (lodge opened 2 years ago) out of a passion for the tigers and the animals and birds. I think that really says it all. He goes out of his way in every respect to make sure that you not only have a comfortable stay, but that you also have a fantastic experience in the park and on the safaris. We arrived as a group of 4 with no permits arranged. We were not able to get them online as they were sold out. Gagan ensured that we were in the right place at the right time to arrange for current permits for every safari we wanted to do - no small feat let me tell you! He also, behind the scenes, arranged for good drivers and good guides to give us the best experience possible. And yes we did see a tiger on our third and last safari!!

The lodge itself is lovely. Rooms are basic but spotlessly clean with very strong and new air conditioners and showers. In fact the condition of the rooms were much better than some much more expensive lodges that I've stayed in. The pool is well maintained. The staff are extremely gracious and friendly and fun. And food is excellent - again better than some other much more expensive places I've stayed. On the last evening Gagan even arranged for us all to have a candle-lit dinner on the roof. 5 star!

So look no further you've found your place!

Room Tip: There are 4 rooms at the back of the property that we stayed in. They were very nice, but they look...

We just got back from Bandhavgarh and cant stop raving about the Tigergarh resort and the national park. Every thing about the resort was amazing - the picturesque setting, tastefully designed cottages and dining hall, delicious food and courteous team at the resort.

Gagan's enthusiasm and passion for wildlife is very infectious and is also the reason that makes Tigergarh special and class apart from all the resorts where we have ever stayed. We enjoyed Gagan's company and learned a lot about wildlife and photography from him. A big special thanks to him for the extra effort of organizing a candle light dinner for us.

Our incredible experience at Tigergarh prompted us to write our first review on trip advisor and we would highly recommend it to all the travellers planning a trip to Bandhavgarh.

We're independant travellers who decided to stay here, and we couldn't have picked anywhere better. The cottages are set in peaceful surroundings full of birds and butterflies. The accommodation was beautiful, with a large bathroom and plenty of hot water. The food was excellent, the best we had on our trip. Gagan was an excellent host and his knowledge of the parks wildlife and birds was extensive. If you have time go on a nature walk with him, our 14 year old son said the bird watching was one of the most enjoyable parts of our trip. All the staff were very friendly and attentive and helped to make our stay here so enjoyable. I would highly recommend staying here, and one day we hope to return.

We stayed here in March 2014 as part of an Exodus group tour. We really couldn't have asked for better. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and the food was excellent. Gagan and his staff were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely recommend staying here and would gladly return, given the opportunity.
