Prices from £1590 to around £1700 per person, according to the time of year*. The price we quote you at the time of booking is guaranteed.
* The National Parks are closed during July, August and September. Ken River Lodge in Panna is also closed from mid-April to June. If you wish to travel during this latter period we recommend staying one night in Khajuraho before continuing to Bandhavgarh; the itinerary would therefore be of only 9 days and the price would be lower.
