NWS client Margaret explores India's Bandhavgarh and Kanha National Parks
Arriving in Delhi at 1am, we were transferred to our hotel for a short evening's rest. The next day was “free”, so we asked the concierge to arrange a guide and driver to take us to a couple of interesting sites and a nice place for lunch – success!
On our second day in India we drove to Agra, where we would spend one night at another very nice hotel. This was different from what was listed on our itinerary but lovely.
Very early on the third day, our guide took us to the Taj Mahal at sunrise. We appreciated getting there before the long lines and the heat. There for about two hours. Later transferred to the airport for a delayed flight (45 minutes) to Khajuraho. Immediately met by a driver. About a 6-hour ride to Tree House Hideaway. Arrived around 10pm so skipped the meal that was prepared for us and just had some soup, as our “tree house guide”, Ashish, would go over some things, escort us to our tree house and explain the “workings” of everything there: full electricity, phone to call to the main lounge, Wi-Fi (good reception) and air conditioning, nice warm bathroom for showering (great shower)! Also had a huge balcony; however never enjoyed it as we were gone so much. Need flashlights at nighttime to get around; are provided.
