Where to Stay

Major national parks typically have a range of options, from luxury resorts to eco-lodges and even the occasional homestay. States like Madhya Pradesh, which have a high focus on wildlife tourism also have a number of State Tourism Safari Lodges which not only offer good value for money but are at excellent locations in popular parks like Bandhavgarh, Kanha and Pench, as well as in lesser-known safari destinations such as Satpura, Panna and Sanjay-Dubri National Park.
