Meet the hosts
The creation of Tiger Resorts and Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge started in 1987 when the late Pradeep Sankhala built and managed the lodge to provide an environmentally friendly experience that would help to conserve the natural habitat and protect tigers whilst giving guest exceptional service and a chance to explore the beautiful area. Pradeep was a professional tour operator as well as a respected conservationist and active leader in Wildlife conservation and ecotourism, lecturing at universities, colleges and schools around the world.
Now the lodge is managed by Pradeep’s son, Amit Sankhala. Amit has boundless enthusiasm and knowledge in eco-tourism principles and is committed to continuing the legacy of conservation and wildlife tourism.
