This was not the first nor the last time I have stayed here. Nandita and Ranjit ensure guests are well looked after. My visit was in the first week of Apriln 2021, just before the second Covid wave rocked India - just in time before the lockdown. We had a group of 12 pax reduced to 8 at the last minute due to flying worries. After a year of being locked up at home, this safari was much needed and what an amazing one it turned out to be. We sighted tigers on each game drive, including Tala, Maya with cubs, Sonam's cubs etc etc. Tadoba's only Black panther was sighted sitting snugly on a tree. Another lot spotted the 'giant' Matkasur in the buffer so the entire experience was surreal. During a night drive at Palasgaon we spotted dholes (wild dogs), nightjars, a civet and an upclose encounter with a juvenile Banded Krait! Our bird spotting target was 70 before the trip - we achieved over 100 species in a span of 4 days. Every evening the heat of the day melted away with the sound of thunder and pre monsoon rains. Food at Svasara is like eating at home. Staff are always attentive and courteous. In addition to Nandita and Ranjit is another super personality - Swarna the naturalist, who shares his knowledge passionately with guests. Rooms / loos at the lodge are modern. There is some power 'tripping' in rooms from time to time but it did not bother us. The lodge gate is a few metres from the Kolara core area gate - can't be better located. To top it Covid regulations were being followed which made us feel much self-assured when we returned home. Hoping to visit again next month.
Beautiful boutique place
We stayed for 3 nights with a 7 year old. The place is well maintained, rooms are big, super clean, clean and fresh linen.....with apt jungle theme decor and private sit out. It is a nice, small boutique resort with good attention to detail. Staff is friendly and always ready to serve you. It is all green around, with jungle inside and fields outside the resort...it is definitely refreshing to stay here. Pool and pool area could have been more well maintained. There were insects and twigs in the pool. Although the food was homely and tasted good, management can think of adding more cuisines to provide variety.
Probably the best resort at kolara gate.
Extremely good 4 star resort situated near kolara gate of TATR. the booking team was always available for queries and accommodating. Pros: 1) very close to kolara gate( 3 min drive). Madnapur gate ( 15 mins) . Alizanga and srikeda gate(25 mins) . Navegaon gate 45 mins. 2) the resort itself is great, well spread, grenery through out, fenced all around. 3) rooms are big. Decor is good. Minibar , warmer comes in handy. Beds are comfortable. All rooms have privacy and sit out lawns in front. 4) no power cuts. Generator was always switched in. From our earlier experience of surrounding resorts the generator was only used at night. 5) u can stroll around in the resort. With the greenery in the resort it's a good experience. 6) pool was the best part ,always well maintained and clean. 7) mini theater that showcases tiger documentaries. 8) the staff including manager Mr Ghosh is always on their toes to help out the guests and accomodate the requests . Mr ghost is very helping and considerate. 8) they provided Umbrellas and raincoats for the rainy season safaris which was a great help. Cons: The only con I felt was the food taste especially when the staff and resort really sets very high standards . There is scope for improvement on the taste front. The spread was always good though. Would definitely come back.
Great Stay and experience - most Importantly Safe stay
Safety in Covid times - pick up from Nagpur airport in a clean and sanitized car. we travelled via the bypass and did not have to go into Nagpur city. safety protocols managed at all times. We had a great stay and enjoyed the Safaris. everyone is very helpful including providing info on the animals, extra Safari arranged at the last minute, we even got a guide and safari vehicle of our choice. Food was really very good - clean standards. enjoyed our stay here
A great resort right at the main entrance to the reserve
My family and I visited Svasara for my wife's birthday in Feb 2021. This was my trip to a jungle lodge and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms are large, clean and and the bed extremely comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, simple but delicious. The staff are extremely polite, helpful and will assist you with everything including booking the safaris. Since there are just a handful of rooms (around 20 I think), there is scope to mingle and socialize with the other guests, some of whom are regulars, which make the experience even more fun. The safaris themselves are highlight though. The open top jeeps and density of wildlife makes for a thrilling experience. The chances of spotting a tiger is quite high, while we didn't spot any on our first safari, on the second we spotted 5. I definitely recommend Tadoba and especially Svasara to all, nature lover or not.
