If you are looking for an exceptional lodge in Bandhavgarh, then Mahua Kothi should be your choice. It features just twelve cottages or ‘Kutiyas’ constructed using local techniques yet furnished to the highest standards, drawing on many of the luxury African wildlife lodges as inspiration. Old and new blend seamlessly, from the use of mud coloured walls, roughly hewn wooden beams and handmade pottery roofs. Yet, you will also find the most comfortable of king-size beds, roll-top bathtubs, rainforest showers, air-conditioning and the most relaxing veranda to kick-back after time in the park, glass in hand.
At the centre of the lodge you have the main living/dining area, looking our over sweeping grassland where you might well see a spot of wildlife as you sip your tea. By day, indulge in the Taj Spa or take a dip in the pool.
The naturalists at Mahua Kothi are some of the best you find in India, many of whom learn their craft in Africa. Head off on customised 4×4 jeeps on safari to spot tiger, leopard, deer and a host of other birdlife and animals that live in Bandhavgarh.
