This is where I would stay in India if I could afford it:
5 Treehouses merging into jungle and tiger reserve.
Treehouse hideaway is in the heart of wild country Bandhavgarh and only 10 minutes drive from the Tala gate of the national park. Guests benefit from the incredible location, outstanding hospitality and a naturalist team. There are 5 Treehouses spread across a natural forest clearing in a dense jungle of 21 acres that merges into one of the last natural tiger reserves of the world.
It is not uncommon to spot animals from the privacy of one’s balconies which overlook the tiger reserve and Bandhavgarh Fort.
Bandhavgarh is a small National Park; compact, yet teeming with wildlife. The density of the Tiger population is the highest known in India. Bandhavgarh is also popular for Spotted Deer, Sambhar, Barking Deer, wild boar, jackals and a large variety of birds.
Tree House Hideaway have taken care to design many activities and excursions which generally all guests visiting Bandhavgarh would otherwise miss out on. The Hideaway in itself is geared up for many tour options and the on-site trained naturalist team makes it all the more interesting. For example. Inside the park you have the option of leaving the jeep and getting on an elephant to take your chance of getting close to a tiger.
Morning and Evening Jeep safaris are organized in the Tiger reserve. Vehicles are 4 x 4 Suzuki open jeeps, fitted with comfortable bucket seats and fridges accompanied by a trained English speaking resident naturalist will ensure comfortable and experienced interpretation of the park.
Bandhavgarh Fort forms the heart and the highest point of the park and is an alternate option to visit for one of the days with a picnic lunch.
Birding around the hideaway and near the farmlands is an interesting option to see over 250 bird species.
Village visits, workshops with bamboo weavers and excursions to Sanjay National park ( 2 hours) can also be organized on request.
