1 The Bandipur Safari Lodge (a resort that is a joint venture between of Tourism and Forest Departments of Karnataka) is located about 4 Kms before the entry gate to the Bandipur Tiger Reserve. I visited Bandipur on 23rd Nov to 25th Nov 2013.
2) The resort is about 80 Kms from Mysore on the Mysore - Ooty road.
3) The rooms are named after animals (e.g. Sambar, Leopard etc)
4) The rooms are neat and clean. Desert coolers are provided in all the rooms. Air conditioners are not provided because they wanted to keep the resort as eco-friendly as possible. (Air conditioners throw out heat into the atmosphere)
5) The bath rooms are large and has a western commode and a wash basin besides the shower area. Geysers are fitted in the bath room.
6) A double bed is provided in all the rooms. A study table, tea table and two chairs are also available in all the rooms.
7) The windows are fitted with wire mesh to avoid entry of mosquitoes & other insects.
8) There is no television in any of the rooms.
9) There is no swimming pool in the resort.
10) A small bar is available for those who would like to consume alcohol.
11) A Gol Ghar with thatched roof is used as a dining area. The food served is good.
12) At 9.45 am, after you come back from the morning safari, breakfast is served hot and the hotel staff pampers you with hot omelette, paratha or poori, bread toast, upma, idly etc. Lunch is served between 1 pm and 2.30 pm before the afternoon safari.
13) Pakoda are served along with hot tea or coffee after you come back from the safari at 6.15 pm.
14) The resort screens a movie on wild life at 7 pm in the lounge and the dinner is served between 8 pm and 9.30 pm.
15) After 7 pm, the place becomes very quiet, except for the noise from the bus or lorry or a car going to Ooty from Mysore.
16) The vehicles for safari start from the lodge (and picks up guest from other resorts at the entrance to the Bandipur Tiger reserve)
17) Most of the drivers and naturalists are knowledgeable and make every effort to show animals to the tourists.
18) The naturalists also maintain a white board on which they record the sightings of various animals and birds during the morning and afternoon safari for the previous 7 days. The sightings add to the excitement and one tends to hope that he / she will also be lucky to sight the predators
19) The campus has lot of greenery and a variety of birds can be found in the campus itself.
20) Other than visiting Bandipur Tiger Reserve, one can also visit Gopalswamy Betta Temple (18 Kms) or Mudumal Tiger Reserve (25 Kms), Ooty (70 Kms)
21) We had a very comfortable stay at Bandipur safari.

It is a good holiday place for family. We enjoyed a lot. The food was good. Staff and rooms was good and hospitality also was very nice. But the Karnataka Tourism Department should plan to allow some subsidy to the citizens of Karnataka to encourage for the holiday forest stay.

The food was reasonably good. Rooms were comfortable and with good ambience with all basic amenities available. The safaris were well organised and very informative and interesting. There were two of them with bonfire in evening which made a nice experience.
My family and I had a wonderful time and would visit again

It was good. There was a cottage type room. I went there with my friends in a group. We booked only one cottage. It was sufficient and it was very clean. We travelled there last month. Nothing was complimentary. Bonfire was there and it was good. We did not ask for safari. Rooms were very good. Room and staff service was excellent. Reception people were good. There was no problem regarding check in or check out. Appearance wise, it was excellent. We had our own car. Parking facility was available there. Bandipur as a national park is an excellent. It is recommendable to all. Booking was done directly. Food was very nice according to the taste and price. No need of improvement in this hotel. Everything was perfect there.

Really it is a splendid first time experienced in Bandipur jungle.

Atmosphere is quiet pretty and enjoyed a lot. Still, This could be more attractive if it is outfitted in middle of more wild animals.

Also, would like to see more variety in continental food facility.

First of all since it is govt lodge, We were not having high expectation on services, we were just looking for peaceful place to stay and good food on time or when required. that way it was good you can enjoy food when you required and also they have timings when you look for trip or safari package, you should be ready to go.
Food, Stay & Entertainment was as expected, you will be satisfied
