Jungle Mantra Bandhavgarh : 
Junglemantra is situated in the valley between the core forest and the buffer zones of the Park. It is spread over an area of 25 acres thus giving its guests a wonderful experience of staying at the Resort. The resort has exclusive cottages, which are charming and they superbly blend in with the surroundings. Thus they maintain the style and simplicity of a true safari camp.

The resort also offers a separate room for screening of wild life films and talks about the forests and surroundings of the forest of Bandhavgarh.

The resort is owned & run by British Asian nature photographer and wildlife artist Shailin Ramji, who is joined by his wife Rhea, a TV producer. Compelled by a keen love for the area, its people and the wildlife, they relocated to India from London and moved to Bandhavgarh to set up Junglemantra.
