Experience a lodge steeped in regal Indian tradition and architecture, with depictions of figures featuring the regions rich, wildlife population.

Large, shaded deck loungers surround the open air swimming pool that offers a refreshing respite from the Indian sun. Samode Safari Lodge has a necklace of private villas strung around the main lodge building. Each villa has an elegant living area with a spacious lounge, a bedroom with a modern en-suite bath, a dressing area, a unique open-air bath court and a private verandah with a view.

Dining is an indulgent treat and a daily surprise – different menu, different venue – either indoors or alfresco. Enjoy gourmet dining at the main restaurant; barbecues around a campfire, a table set for you out in the bushes; long lazy poolside meals, or romantic dining in the privacy of your own villa. Exciting cuisine and excellent wines await you. The picnics are a special treat – be prepared for thoughtful service under the sky and the trees – the very air adding flavor to your food.
