We were there for the year end break and had a wonderful time with family... one of those best places of the JLR properties. They planned it well with one boat and one jeep safari. Food is really...

One of the best experiences at JLR

The River Tern Lodge is a Jungle Lodges and Resorts property, located on the banks of the Bhadra reservoir. This was our first visit to this particular resort and the experience was as good as any...

The Rangers are not professional

If you compare Kabini with this place then this is below average as the rangers are inexperienced and the safari is not well coordinated as in Kabini. I am not sure why all the JLRs do not operate...
