am home again now after my great trip in India with Patrick and Munir and your
organization. I thought it great and enjoyed every minute of it the buildings
and sights of the cities visited were most interesting and I enjoyed the architecture
and all we saw. The country side we traveled through and of course the reserves
that we went to and it is always a delight to me to see the wild animals [ Margaret
@ I saw 7 Tigers road the elephant and got a good bird list too and to be out
of hotels and in the country side.
Thank you very much for everything
and your gifts to each of us when we departed on our travels from Delhi.
Wonderful place, and a great "hotel".
Thank You, Sharad, Shailendra, and superb staff. - Peter Mattheisen ( winner
National Book Award 1979 on "Snow Leopard").
one of the best wildlife areas I've ever visited. We had marvelous views of Tiger
and many other animals and great birding. I'll never forget the first morning
when we watched two young Tigers for over an hour. I hope to return soon.

Bandhavgarh is magic and Sharad is pure good luck! 7 Tigers. Thank You for
superb service and a lifetime of magic experience. - Robert Bateman
You all for a tremendous couple of days. Your hospitality was tremendous too and
we shall remember Tiger's Den with great fondness. Raghu and Sanjay, our Naturalist
and Driver were extremely knowledgeble and skilful and contributed greatly to
us seeing 8 Tigers. Once again many thanks. - Steven Pettitts of Pettitts
Thank You Sharad and Shailendra for the best ever visit to Bandhavgarh.
Food, service and especially the company and friendship of both of you were excellent.
The naturalist Raghu was first class, observant and informative and the driver
deserves a gold medal. The attitude of everybody here is superb. We shall certainly
recommend Tiger's Den to everyone who is planning a visit to India. 6 Tigers
- Mary & Ian Love, Scotland
A big thank you to Shailendra
and all the staff here of the Tiger's Den. Everyone involved here were most pleasant
and helpful. I loved all the home cooked food. Driver and Naturalist ( specially
Raghu), has to be rated tops in professionalism in India. Bandhavgarh is a wonderful
park- a great world treasure, and I know with thoughtful people like Shailendra
and Raghu working here, the Wilderness experience here will get better and better.
Again, thank you all around to the staff, I will be back again. - Allen

were fulfilled! We saw not one but 5 Tigers. For me the most thrilling and a memorable
one was B-2. What a magnificent creature! Our stay at the Tiger's Den was all
we hoped for. Barbara and Bev Ridgely
The best of Luck to
Tiger's Den. Everyone treats you so special! This experience will go down as very
special one in my life. - Marilyn and Ron Murdock
who are fortunate enough to stay here could not dream of a more rewarding and
relaxing experience. We immediately felt right at home- part of the family. Excellent
hospitality, delicious food, and beautiful atmosphere - all with perfect execution.

What a wonderful place to
stay while visiting a truly beautiful and exciting park. We so appreciate the
kindness and efficiency shown to us by a truly # 1 staff!! . The Tiger was wonderful,
the birds fun to watch and all the other animals- but your people were the best!
- Christina and Eric Holenda
I would travel from the ends of the
earth, which I did, to visit this fantastic and magical place. The setting and
staff are sublime. Thanks for sharing this experience with me. - Eric Kareus
A most enjoyable and memorable stay. The courteous and personal attention
paid to us by all the staff has made us feel very much at home. The food was great
and the dining service was excellent. Our room was clean and comfortable, the
surroundings peaceful and quiet, so we slept well. Our visit to Bandhavgarh has
been a true highlight of our month long tour of India - including sighting of
7 Tigers. - Dave and Marcia Miller
We came to Bandhavgarh
with no idea about what we should expect- we had only the hope that we might be
lucky enough to see a Tiger, even for a second or two!
But we leave with
a heavy heart. Kerry and I have been looked after impeccably. The service is unbeatable,
the people incredibly kind and generous, and the food (so much of it) has been
out of this world), we don't want to go.
We have been lucky enough to see the B2 Tiger twice. The skill of Raghu (our Botanist)
and the talent of Sanjay (driver) got us an unbelievable experience; as dusk fell
we found ourselves only 8 feet from a beautiful Tiger.
And what wonderful
breakfasts on the lawn in the sunshine! Our host and his staff made this an unforgettable
experience. We can't wait to recommend this to our many friends both in England
and Australia. - Kenny and Roger Trollope
his was the highlight
of our Indian trip. Mr. Shailendra Tiwari and his wife took care of us and made
our staying here a kind of festival. Everything was in best order, Tiger's Den
is a wonderful resort - and we compare this with our nights in Palaces and hotels
with 5 stars and 4 stars. We felt to be cared by mother. The park was wonderful
and the staff did everything to provide the best for us. Food and service excellent.
We can recommend Tiger's Den warmly and we will, to all our friends. -
Shailendra Tiwari has a true Oasis here at Bandhavgarh.
Wonderful, spacious room and bath. But the best part is the loving, gentle, attentive
care given by Shailendra and his staff. Raghu our guide and Sanjay our driver
were helpful and caring. Anyone wanting the best there is in Bandhavgarh will
be delighted with the outstanding addition of Tiger's Den. The food was good and
kitchen quite accommodating. My very best wishes for continued success to Shailendra,
Bindu and their new Baby. - Gay Burkhart, Pat leeson
never had a stay at a place where the staff was so cheerful and accommodating.
The food was outstanding and my wife and I have enjoyed it tremendously. I wish
you the best for the future. We have felt like family the way you have treated
us. - Richard and Carolyn Titus
It was a beautiful stay here in Tiger Den Lodge Bandhavgarh. The national park

Thank you very much for an excellent installment of our holiday here in India. Our holiday prior to Bandhavgarh had started off quite poorly but since arriving hear we have been very well looked after and could not asked for more from the staff . This has now set us up to enjoy the rest of our holiday.
If any one is reading this I would wholeheartedly recommend the Tiger Den Resort and if we come back India it would be the first place we would look to book up .
In summary , excellent service from meals through to game drives and best of all some Tiger !
All the best & many thanks,
