Pugdundee is a Hindi word meaning a foot trail commonly used by humans and animals, often used for such beaten paths in the Indian jungles. It is these Central India jungles where Pugdundee’s first tented camp was started in 1986, and has grown to seven intimate safari lodges with a staff of 300 dedicated, passionate naturalists, guides, mahouts, boat men, trackers and marketing team.
