What for many would sound like a fabulous, other-worldly fantasy is the way and reality of life at The Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge (BFSL) at the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) near Chandarpur, Maharashtra. All the villas at the resort are ingeniously crafted with all the luxuries you’d expect back home. An eco-tourism destination unlike any other, it allows you to get back into the lap of nature and far from the madding crowd, but never too far from comfort. The dramatic emergence of TATR on the centre stage of tiger tourism to rank as world’s premier tiger reserve and India’s best has brought in its fold new challenges of creating eco-friendly and eco-sensitive tourism infrastructure
