Default Dudhwa - bookings, guide, elephant ride etc.

Thank you Druva. About the accommodation, guide and the elephant ride, general details are in the travelogue. Booking I did not mention. That was lacking.

However, here are the details:

Booking:

There are two types of accommodation available in Dudhwa. One in some parts of core area inside the forest and one on the fringes near the HQ.

Inside the core area of forest the accommodation are called 'Van vishram Griha' roughly translated as Forest Rest House. These are in Sathiyana, Salukapur and Sonaripur. The one in Sathiyana (where we stayed) is the best; I was told so by the guide as well as some others too there. The other two are good too but some improvement work is going on. All the rest houses are equipped with a caretaker and Solar power assuring you light in the night. During the day in winters they shut it down to conserve power since due to foggy conditions the sun appears late.. In summers I presume it is 24 hrs.

The park opens for public from November to May.

Dudhwa Resorts,Dudhwa Wildlife Resort India,Dudhwa Jungle Resorts in Uttar Pradesh

To book the FRH one has to write to the chief wildlife warden of Uttar Pradesh in Lucknow. To ensure availability, it is better to make some politico like and MP/MLA to write a letter to the CWW, because many high-ups from UP State too visit this place and to accommodate them lesser mortals are bumped off.

Then there are huts called the Tharu huts that are given on contract to UP tourism and their booking is handles by them.

Once you reach Dudhwa after getting your bookings done, you have to contact the DFO at the HQ to make the payments etc and get the guide and do the bookings for the elephant ride.

For more information, contact the Director, Dudhwa Tiger Reserve, District Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh (Tel: 05872-252106). Additional assistance can be obtained from the Chief Wildlife Warden at 17, Rana Pratap Marg, Lucknow.

I hope this informaton is useful to you.

Default Dudhwa National Park - queries

All:

I am planning for our annual trip during the summer vacations and looking at some offbeat destinations this time.

I am thinking of going to Dudhwa national park - but cant find a lot of information about it. Need some help and pointers -

1. What are the stay options in Dudhwa? I have seen some FRHs - are they any good? How to book them? any resorts nearby?
2. How is the wildlife sighting - I have heard that we can see Rhinos also in Dudhwa - anyone has had first hand experience?
3. Roads to Dudhwa - I am planning to goto Dudhwa from LKO. Any pointers about the roads, etc.
4. Is May a good time to visit?

Looking forward to all the information and suggestions. Please pour in.

Thanks.

1. in Apr 2012 we stayed in Jambolana Safari Camp <wilderness.safaris@gmail.com> / Jamshed Singh +91 9810017372
charged us - Safari tent x1 @ 5000/night; Extra Bed @ 1000/night
Children aged 6 and below are complementary

Other options:
used to be a crappy sharda hotel and another lousy one. people sometimes said, the nepal side options (20km away) are better. no idea though.
old info from GD saab:
Hotel Sharda, Palia. Phone 05871-233444.

Hotel Pushpanjali, Nighasan Road, Palia. 233172.

Bharat Lodge, Palia, Lakhimpur. 233536.

Hotel Rai Palace - Palia. Tel. No. 235233, 298098.

Hotel Mahendra, Dudhwa National Park Road, Palia, Phone 233247.

Hotel Roopam, Palia. Tel. No. 9415166102

Hotel Amar, Palia. Tel. No. 234211.

2. Excellent park land. We saw only limited deer, nothing else. It was a great drive taking your own car inside. I have not even considered going back even once in the last four years - although I still dream of going back to Ranthambore / Bandhavgarh.
3. Excellent roads as of Apr 2012 though.
4. Apr end was a good time though could be a bit hot in the day.
