Amazing !!
We celebrated our marriage anniversary at BT, Kanha and what an amazing experience it was !! Exquisite jungle ambience, eager & knowledgable naturalist (Mr. Jaya) to accompany on Safari rides and increase the joy of the jungle, impeccably maintained tents poised over the wild Banjaar river, perfectly cooked breakfasts/lunches/ dinners which Star Chef Nimji churned out one after the other, elegant & outstanding service by Vikas….. Terrific indeed !!! Already looking forward to our next trip !!

This property did very well with everything and then went extra steps to make our stay special. The guide was knowledgeable and patient; the safari truck, with a long wheel base, was the best of any in the Reserve; the chef spoke with us and took pains to cook food that we found interesting and flavorful; our cabin was spacious and the room butler attentive. In addition, the property did a special dinner for us under a tree, with kerosene lamps for lighting. The only improvement we would recommend is to use game drive trucks with a roof, which would help with the sun. Roofed trucks are common on African safaris.

My wife and me were celebrating our 25 years of togetherness, and it was really worth an experience to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary.
Our experience at Taj Banjaar Tola, was really worth a while, and did make our special occasion even more special. The entire staff, was so warm and efficient that they took utmost care of all our requirements. Though the weather was extremely warm, which we were aware of, but the warm and hospitable staff at the property didnt make us feelthe heat.

Memorable stay at Banjaar Tola - Taj Safaris
1. We (myself, my wife & my daughter) visited Kanha National Park between 13th May to 15th May 2022 (for 2N / 3D). And stayed at Banjaar Tola by Taj Safaris. 2. Banjaar tola is located about 2 kms from Mukki gate. 3. The resort is located on the banks of the river Banjaar, The core area of the forest adjoins the other side of the river. In fact we have to enter the gate of the resort from the main road and drive through about 1 km through the buffer area of the forest to reach the common area / rooms of the resort. THE LOCATION IS AWESOME. 4. There are 18 rooms (read as tented accommodation) in the resort. In fact the resort is divided into 2 blocks of 9 rooms each (West block and East block) 5. ROOMS: The rooms are provided with a double bed (with option of extra bed for a 3rd person). A small table with a couple of chairs and a mini sofa are available in the room. A sliding door separates the bed room from the other room / enclosure which houses the almirah for clothes / racks for your baggage / wash basin / western commode / bath tub / a beautiful area for shower. Blinds are provided on all the windows. When you adjust the blinds, one can literally feel as if he is showering in the jungle!!! From the room one can see the Banjaar river and the dense jungle from the room itself through a sliding door fitted with transparent glass. In fact, one can sit on the bed and enjoy the scenery. Go ahead and relax yourselves in the bath tub. 6. SIT OUT / BALCONY: The sit out (read balcony) is connected to the bedroom with a sliding door. A small table with 2 chairs and a pair of cots are provided in the sit out area. One can really enjoy at the sit out area early in the morning when it is cool (during the summer). And during the winter you can sun bathe in the sit out area. Go ahead and enjoy your coffee / tea. Relax on the cot with a book in your hands. 7. RESTAURANT: Taj Safaris ask the customers in advance about their dietary preferences if any. And the Head Chef Ajit and team go out of the way to ensure they meet the customer expectations (My wife is a pure vegetarian and cannot stand the smell of garlic. They went out of the way to ensure that the requirements are met in total) 8. LIBRARY: Relax with a book on Nature and wildlife. Enjoy the myriad tales the Naturalists share with you about their experience not only in the jungles of Kanha but also the odd encounter of wildlife in the resort during the off season (read monsoon period of July to Sept) 9. LOCAL CRAFTWORK / SOUVENIR SHOP: Indulge in some shopping in the souvenir shop or buy the local paintings from Kanha. 10. The WiFi connectivity for Airtel / Vodafone is poor. Jio seems to have better connectivity in these forests. 11. Winters (Nov to Feb) are the peak season for Banjaar Tola as most of foreign clients visit Kanha during this period. The forest is lush green and beautiful during this period. 12. The lean season for Banjaar Tola seems to be the Summer months of May and June when the ambient temperature goes up to 45 to 46 degrees Celcius. However the sightings of Tiger is higher in the summer. 13. Thanks to Chef Ajit and the F & B team of Isha / Karan / Manoj. They were really efficient and pampered us. All our eccentric requests were adhered to and we never felt wanting for anything. In fact, we were given a surprise dinner under the starlit sky (and it happened to be a full moon). Thanks for the wonderful gesture. Every meal was brilliant but the surprise dinner under open sky was truly memorable. In fact Chef Ajit inspired us with his sharing about how he has worked extremely hard to achieve success in life as he was born into an economically challenged family. He shared that Taj supports and motivates employees to give off their best. During the dinner under the starlit sky, one of the employees. The conversation of the evening was as good as the meal - Jaya narrated stories of his best tiger sightings (you MUST ask him for his top 3! The story is as good as the sightings itself. The special cameo appearance of security team’s Shankar - who told us of the most hair raising encounter with a tiger - on foot - 6 feet away inside the resort! Be sure to ask for the story when you’re there 14. Front Desk’s Venkat Perumal displayed exemplary courtesy and hospitality of Taj Safaris Banjaar Tola. The check in and check out were carried out very quickly and efficiently. 15. The housekeeping / maintenance staff - who tirelessly answered our distress call to make the rooms cooler in the afternoons (it is blistering hot indoors in the tents during May days, so beware!) 16. The staff who ferried us everywhere - from airport to the property (Sailu), from the East Camp to the Curio Shop 17. And Sachin - the spa therapist - who gave such a good treatment we went to him on both days! Fully unexpected but totally welcome spa therapy post sarafi. Aha bliss’s 18. Special thanks to our Naturalist Jaya who went the extra mile to ensure that we not only enjoyed our safari at Kanha but also enjoyed our stay at Banjaar Tola. He regaled us with his experiences in the jungles of Kanha. And his story telling skills are excellent. Jaya is a patient listener and explains details in a clear and concise manner. 19. We had a great time at Banjaar Tola and really enjoyed ourselves despite the hot weather which was a challenge for the air conditioners at the resort!! 20. Taj Safaris & Banjaar Tola – Keep up the great work.
