We did not have much information on this resort as we started our road journey from Kolkata. As we rounded up our stay at Panna, I cannot afford to not mention about our stay at Panna Tiger resort. The resort is about 1 Km from the Madla gate of Panna Tiger Reserve. Its a nice cozy place, and most importantly has a fabulous team led by Shridhar (GM). We were really impressed at the care they took. We landed during Dushera and did not make any prior booking to enter the park. Since the park allows a fixed number of visitors, I realized getting and entry pass would be a major challenge due to the holiday rush. Shridhar confirmed. Yet at the same time he promised to use every influence he could leverage. Which he did, and made our trip so memorable. Without his personal effort we would have had to return without a visit. A lesson learnt in planning but at the end a successful effort. The team made sure we had adequate food supplies and water every time that we set out into the forest or a for a local visit. Even on the day we left (at 5.00 am sharp) we had packed breakfast and bottles of water ready to be loaded on to our car, with the entire team at the gate to wish us Bon Voayage. Overlooking the Ken river, Panna Tiger Resort, handled all aspects of our stay and the visits. You could make any demand on Shridhar and he made it a point to get the desire fulfilled. Hats off to the entire team, for making the visit so memorable and enjoyable!
