"No matter how far you journey, you are always on Mother Earth. And for her hospitality, she demands so little. That wherever we travel, we respect her landscapes, conserve her resources, value her local traditions. It is only if we travel this way that we can gift our children the same green, generous planet to explore. "
In Hindi, Pugdundee means a foot trail used by animals and humans and refers to the narrow, beaten paths that wind through the Indian jungles. Pugdundee Safaris' roots are in central India where we made a humble start in 1986 with a small camp in Panna. Today, we own and manage 6 exclusive safari lodges set in the breathtaking wilderness of 5 tiger reserves: Panna, Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Pench and Satpura.
Pugdundee Safaris is recognized as one of India's leading responsible safari companies. Between 2010 and 2013, we have been awarded for our excellence in eco-tourism, our commitment to green architecture, our experienced naturalists and our pioneering mobile safari initiative.
We believe that responsible tourism and wildlife conservation go hand-in-hand. Thus, we passionately promote responsible travel, adopt sustainable practices and facilitate local involvement in conservation by empowering the communities that surround our lodges. Our dedicated team of 150 (many of whom belong to nearby villages), provide a truly authentic Indian wildlife experience.
At Pugdundee, our every endeavour is driven by our deep love for India's forests and our passion for its wildlife. And we attempt to nurture in each of our guests, this same enduring love for India's wild spaces.
So come, walk on a pugdundee with us.
