V Resorts Tigergarh Bandhavgarh

Bated breaths, sweat beads, alarm calls...and the greatest sighting known to the Indian jungle. If the wild is your thing and the big cats set your pulse racing, visit Bandhavgarh. Spread over 450 sq km, Bandhavgarh National Park boasts a high density of tigers, some 65. And so there is a high probability of spotting them over a period of two-three days. V Resorts Tigergarh is just 3.5 km from Tala Gate, the park entry. A soulful boutique resort, it has echoes of the rustic and a very personalised service. Its proximity to the forest (a mere 150 metres from the barbed wire) makes staying here a thrilling adventure. So relax in the gazebo, hear the forest sounds, watch the night sky while lounging in the plunge pool, go deep into tiger territory on the safaris, and then if you get time, watch the Baiga and Gond tribes enthral you with their traditional song and dance performance. At V Resorts Tigergarh you will be truly, One With The Wild. Make sure to carry jackets – the woods in these parts tend to get cold early mornings.

Local Tour

A kilometere away from the resort is Rancha village. A true-blue village, the walls of its clean mud huts depict tribal lore from Gond art. Get a guided tour, watch the villagers go about their daily lives. The man-animal conflict is a reality here, and comes out in the villagers' tales. Sample a basic village meal.

Wildlife photographers will tell you the subtle joys of waiting for hours without food or movement for one sighting. The whiff of the air suddenly moves the leaf and you capture that perfect tiger shot. Learn the art of wildlife photography from a renowned name in the field, understand the nuances, share tips and stories, and bond with fellow shutterbugs. Register for photography tours with the resort.

Stay

Rooms

All the 11 rooms creatively combine the rustic with the elegant. In sync with the village look, there are mud-plastered walls and bamboo lamps made by local villagers. There are six separate cottages, each with space for doubles and two more beds, an attached bath and a private sit-out. The 4 rooms can be used separately (each has a separate bath) as well as by a group as they have a common sit-out and verandah. The sole family room has space for 4 beds plus an extra, and comes with a dedicated fenced garden

Gazebo

There are two thatched gazebos in the resort. Lounge here, read, hear the animals' alarm calls (when monkeys and deer realise a big cat is the vicinity, they give out calls to warn others). Sit by the bonfire in the night or just take in the stillness.

About

Legend has it that Lord Rama crowned his brother, Laksman, the king of these lands on which the Bandhavgarh Fort was later built. And more historical accounts tell us how several dynasties – from the Chandelas to the Baghelas – left their imprint here. Meanwhile, the tribes here have their own thriving oral histories. Today, of course, Bandhavgarh is known for its tiger reserve and is a must-go destination for wildlife enthusiasts. Along with Kanha and Pench, Bandhavgarh completes the last corner of the triangle that makes Madhya Pradesh such a sought-after big cat sighting destination. Along with the safari, soak in the rich history, tribal folklore and jungle tales of this fascinating land.
