Five Top Tips for a Tiger Tale

There’s nothing quite like the raw power and majesty of a tiger – and the experience is one never to be forgotten – but what’s the best way to go about seeing one? You’re a first time visitor to India, a wildlife enthusiast with limited time, or a returning and frustrated traveller yet to see a tiger… so what’s the way to stand the best chance of seeing tiger in the wild?

The Kanha collection

Three distinctively unique lodges that we recommend as real gems in the Indian jungles of Kanha. If you’re travelling to Kanha National Park in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh – the so called ‘Tiger State’ – there are numerous choices of jungle lodge that almost litter the roadside near both Kisli and Mukki entrance gates. In our opinion Kisli gate has now become overcrowded with both lodges and people queuing in...

The time capsule that’s Fatehpur Sikri

Often missed but very much a part of the ‘Golden Triangle’ in the Agra District of Uttar Pradesh, India;  this abandoned city encapsulates Murghal life in a way that the tourist-smothered monuments of Agra fall short.

For us, this ancient capital, which...

We’ve long been fortunate enough to know the Rashid family, owners of the Jehan Numa collection of lodges and hotels – from the days when theirs was our only haven of respite from the jungles we lived in within India. In those days they were in the formative years of turning their ancestral home – formerly the palace of the Begum of Bhopal (the first female ruler of a principality) – into a charming and impressive heritage...

Samode Safari Lodge – a fine heritage

If ever there is an argument for visiting a wildlife park and never leaving your hotel then Samode Safari Lodge has to be it! It’s not often that we’re taken aback on entering an hotel room but at Samode Safari Lodge on the edge of Bandhavgarh National Park in India we experience a definite double-take! We should have expected a treat as Samode’s other hotels (beautiful heritage properties in Rajasthan) had, on previously visits to...
