Quite thrilling.If u stay at the forest bunglow which is about 7 km, inside the forest u can experience a variety of wild animals performing on a stage set just in front of the bunglow. Beside the elephant ride is awesome.

Best Experience: Elephant ride.

Worst Experience: Staying at the Hollong forest guest house, most ill maintained but charges are Rs.2500/ per night.

Simply Wonder full. Only bunglow probably , so inside the forest and will have 90 % guaranteed encounter with wild. I was hearing about the place for 4 years to finally decided to book it. It is easy as this place is the first choice of any travelers to Dooars.
It is difficult to explain my experience.There was a full WAR just in front of your Room between a heard of 12 Elephants, 3 Bison and 4 Rihno with Cubs AND we are watching it through our window upto 3.30 AM.
The Bunglow was almost occupied by the Govt Servants till Last year , when Tourist Dept has taken a decision not to allow Govt Occupancy more than 2 Rooms a Day.
Now Tourists can take the Benifit of this Bunglow , which was the Best Choice of Ex WB Chief Minister \' Jyoti Basu\'.
There is a Saltpit just before the Bunglow , where Animals come to to lick the salt AND the SaltPit is just 100 meters away from your Window. Take best of your Camaras ( if with Night Vision ).

Best Experience: - Encounter with Animal Instinct.
- Elephant ride at morning

Worst Experience: N O N E.

I stayed here for several time. September and April 2012 , March 2011, April 2010, November 2009, February 2008. First of all location wise (to spot Rhino, Bison , Elephant, Peacock , Deer , Parakit and many more ) it is the best Jungle lodge or forest bunglow acroos India. Once you are inside the Hollong tourist lodge you feel the Jungle and may see Rhino or bison within 10-15 Meter distance from the bumglow. In the afternoon and dawn Maximum time Wild animals coming to Saltlik and spend time there. In the evening and night you can see the elephant , rhino, bison from the Bunglow . They have very good Search light Arrangement. The elephant ride is the added advantage of the Bunglow. For elephant ride first preference always given to Those who are stayed at Hollong Bunglow , after that outsider may get chance of elephant ride. Stay here for a perfect jungle experience. Rooms and Toilet are big and cozy, food quality is good and the wonderful part is the elephant safari. The elephant safari is the unique experience and you will love it. Animals like deer, bison and rhinos can be seen from elephant and also from the view area from the lodge. There is a salt pit just beside the lodge, at night animals do come here, and the strong light focus from the lodge will make these animals visible, this experience is unique. Superb location to viewing the one horned rhinocerous at close quarters. You can visit South Kheyerbari leopard Rescue centre , Totopara , Chilapata jungle and Buxa Jayanti from here with a Day Excursion. Big Common area where you can see the animals at a stone through distance.Very tough to manage or get Booking. Though onlinebooking is there . you can go for direct booking through Little bit of Costly as it is govt guest house some part of Lack of maintenance. Always go for View room
