Guests on Safari in India



"The setting for the pool at Baghvan is stunning. Stroppy grey langurs provided the entertainment as they came to drink the pool and bang their fists on the tables when they didn't get to try our food.... They were far enough away to be funny rather than threatening. All four games drives we did in Pench were fantastic. Our naturalist Wasim showed us lots of really amazing stuff (lovely owls!), and we really enjoyed the al fresco birthday breakfast laid on for a fellow guest one morning."

"“…and this year we decided to explore the jungles of Pench as I had seen fantastic ads in the various Taj hotels and the Taj books that we receive periodically. The experience of this holiday was absolutely magical and for this I would like to thank the team in the Pench lodge who do such a wonderful job.
The rooms and facilities were outstanding but as always what stood out was the exemplarity service that we experienced. The food was simply outstanding and while the chefs were modest enough to call it home cooked food I would rate it at par with any top quality gourmet restaurant. All the naturalists were very knowledgeable. What impressed me the most was to see how well the local community was engaged and the opportunities that were made available to the locals. It is this kind of empowerment which leads to a nations success. I congratulate the team at Taj Safaris for doing such a splendid job. "

"The property and its staff just leave you spellbound from the moment you step into the lobby of the hotel. The hospitality leaves no stone unturned in ensuring that the guest has the most memorable stay with every litttle nuance taken care of. Cleanliness, decor, comfort, luxury, exellent hospitality, friendly well informed staff...Taj Baghvan has it all.
My husband took me to this exotic property to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. He had only informed the hotel at the time of booking about this but had not even the faintest clue that we will be treated as special guests through our trip. The hotel staff had organised a surprise sunset drive along with high tea on our anniversary. A cake was specially baked for us and a little surprise celebration took place in our room later that evening. A wonderful dinner was organised around the mahua tree with lanterns, lovely setting for a lovely romantic dinner to end the day.
The safari was very well organised, hot water bags and blankets to keep us warm when we started off, drinks and snacks to keep us going through the rest of the travail when the sun came out.....it was all just there before you even asked. We were guided by Kaustabh who was very well read about the property, the wildlife, the calls of the jungle, photography....very pasionate about what he did and we were lucky to have him as our naturalist throug our stay...We were lucky to spot tigers both in the morning and afternoon safaris thanks to him.
A big thank you to all the staff at the hotel, but a most special one to our personal butler Desu who made our stay so memorable that it is difficult to put in words. He took care of all our meals, whether we wanted to dine in our room on the machan or in the open...he took our special requests...he in short took care of all our needs....and did all of that with a smiling face and with complete conviction and dedication to his work. We would like to thank him for making our vacation truly comfortable.
Luxury in wilderness is what Baghvan is all about...It does not though forget the other more important factors, like great service, great food and great hospitality. A seven star rating from me to the hotel and and all their staff for their total dedication to what they do. I would love to visit again and would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Pench. "

"This property is the finest jungle lodge. Sambhar deer roam the property and wild dogs hunt in its vicinity. It is just 2 minute drive from Turia gate. There are just 12 suites which are very ethnic but with all modern comforts. Hospitality and service is top of the line. The food is awesome and fresh. Each meal is a surprise and a gastronomists delight. Chef Sachin served excellent Mexican, Lebanese and Italian fare. Indian food is great.
The park is beautiful and only parts of it are open for tourists. Tiger sightings are a matter of chance, of course a good naturalist helps.
After experiencing this jungle property of Taj, would be looking forward to visit the others. "

…The open air bath is also a pretty unique experience. There are no televisions in the rooms and the mobile signal is not the best, which ensures that you actually have a holiday.

What stands out at the property is the quality of food and the personalized service. Anything you request is catered to in a jiffy, and always with a smile.
The Safaris into the forest are another fantastic experience. The guides are usually highly educated individuals who left promising corporate careers to take up their passion for wildlife. They are very knowledgeable about the forest and provide interesting company…”
