          The ones facing the river have a good view.. not sure about the machans cos they aren't at a great height for a good view.. but if u r traveling with children, I would suggest the regular tents with the river view.

          Hi, I plan on driving here from Bangalore in November, I can't seem to find any information on the cost. Can I get a list of the prices? Also, is two days enough time to enjoy the safari etc? Which room type would you recommend for elderly people as well as younger people that is still a good wild life experience?
