Baghvan, A Taj Safari

Located just 100 kms away from Nagpur, a two hour drive brings you to Baghvan, which literally means the ‘tiger forest’. Only a few minutes from the national park entrance these 12 charming stand-alone bungalows are built alongside a picturesque ‘nullah’ (dry riverbed), that demarcates the lodge premises from the national park. Each bungalow comes with its own rooftop machan, indoor and outdoor shower areas and a private sit-out surrounded by the woods. A colonial theme is nuanced in the guest areas with a vintage radio, crystal candelabras on the dining table and metal chandeliers. Delicate Parsi tiles on the live food counter, woven hyacinth furniture and giant ebony chests add to the elegance of the hall. The Taj Safari Lodge in Baghvan has a delightful infinity pool shaded by trees and overlooking the forest. A tiny cottage across the safari shop houses a small library, computer and a television for guests, with the adjacent room being a tasteful serene space for massage treatments.

Excellent - the warmth, hospitality and courtesy accorded by all staff was of a very high standard! keep it up!
Our cottage was overlooking a creek and was very cosy, comfortable and adequately furnished. Went on 3 safari drives and spotted lone tigers twice. A Big Thank You to the Lodge Team led by Mr Tejas Bhoite and included Ms Divya, Mr Shree, Mr Gurunath, Chef Vikram, Mr Raj, Mr Pankaj, Mr Shyam, Mr Subhash, Mr Mahesh, Mr Krishna and all the other unseen/unnamed staff who worked at the backend to ensure that our stay was entirely pleasant, satisfying, comfortable and immensely enjoyable. All meals were substantial, appetizing and delectable, and the Chef and his staff always asked us what special dishes they should prepare for our meals. We went on the safari drives with Naturalist Mr Gurunath, who was very patient and answered all our questions. He also recounted incidents from his experience when confronted with wild animals. The visit to the nearby Gond village was an eye opener and we learnt how the local village folk live a simple but hard existence and how they cope with and react to man-tiger-animal encounters. The Mahua dinner on the 1st night was very elaborate with live counters and grills. The last night's dinner was a very special one, served on the cottage patio and the decor was very appealing. The safari drive jeeps were better than the Gypsy jeeps we were provided recently at Kaziranga. Overall to summarise, we had a very cherishing and memorable 3 nights stay and savoured the renowned Taj hospitality! Thank you guys

A memorable experience!
We had a fantastic stay at Baghvan! Special thanks to Amit for everything! The accommodation was fabulous. The decor and furnishing was delightful! The rooftop machan was a first for us and all of us loved it! The food was good. The dinner under the beautiful mahua tree with all those beautiful lanterns is a memory we will carry for a long time! Overall, a truly great experience! Very very Taj like!
