Samode_Safari_Lodge Samode Safari Lodge, Bandhavgarh

Open since October 2010, the Samode Safari Lodge near Bandhavgarh was awarded a coveted place on the Conde Nast Traveler’s 2011 Hot List. The Safari Lodge embodies the same meticulous attention to detail, outstanding personal service, unique character and local sensitivity that have been the cornerstones of the Samode Group’s reputation.

Located in the heart of tiger country on the edge of the 450 sq km Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, 12 individual local style villas are set in 11 acres of open grassland. Two main lodges with spacious lounges on the top floor open onto wooden decks offering an almost spiritual relaxation in a tree-top setting. Machans or observation towers provide opportunities for bird and wildlife sightings.

The Samode Safari Lodge has been designed and built with the lightest possible environmental footprint. The aim was to create luxury in the most sustainable manner. The adjoining villages of Mardari and Gohori are the inspiration for the architectural language of the Lodge. The walls are constructed with the traditional hand moulded bricks and building materials have been locally sourced. The Lodge also uses solar energy and does extensive rain-water harvesting to recharge ground water levels.

Guests enjoy morning and evening safari’s into the game park. April to June is the best time for tiger spotting but the hotel is open all year.

Contact Mysteries of India to discuss an itinerary including a stay at the Samode Safari Lodge.
