Dhole’s Den is a boutique, eco-friendly and luxurious safari homestay located close to Bandipur national park. Visitors looking for hotels, resorts, jungle lodges and accommodation in and around Bandipur are welcome to stay in our Eco safari Lodge and SafariHomestay on the edge of Bandipur National Park and see why we are different. The name Dhole’s Den is derived from the Dhole, the Asiatic wild dog (Cuon alpinus). Dhole’s Den Bandipur is the residence of Karthik Davey and his family who are ardent dog lovers and share a passion for the outdoors.
Jungle lodges have been named after the tiger, elephant or leopard and there are many resorts you will find in Bandipur. Dhole’s Den is dedicated to all that is dog and to start with the Asiatic Wild Dog, who we feel is one of the most fascinating hunters in the Indian jungle with a complex and unique social hierarchy. At Dhole’s Den it is our endeavour to emphasize the importance and the beauty of this animal which wrongly stands in the shadow of bigger animals like the tiger, leopard or elephant and win support for the conservation of the jungle in Bandipur with the dhole as its mascot.
Our lodge is in the vicinity of small villages bordering the Bandipur National Park. Nevertheless the wild animals of the park are close enough to be even heard. Be it the sloth bear with its cubs at night or elephants and wild boar, the roar of the tiger or the growl of a leopard, none are ever too far away.
