Mahua Kothi, A Taj Safari, Bandhavgarh National Park

Nestled across 40 acres of lush forestland, Mahua Kothi is a luxury safari lodge perfectly located to explore Bandhavgarh National Park in search of Bengal tigers.

This beautiful 12 suite lodge sprawls over 40 acres with private courtyards, shaded seating and traditional mud floors. The charming guest suites make good use of the lovely rich local textiles, sculptures and ornaments. En suite bathrooms are simply dreamy and there are bikes for exploring the area and a swimming pool.

The lodge features a magnificent swimming pool, traditional garden, interactive kitchen and a Safari Shop. Nestled among the picturesque Vindhya Hills and lush tropical forests, Bandhavgarh National Park is a 173-square-mile (448 sq km) renowned tiger reserve and one of the most beautiful parks in India.

The dramatic landscape is home to a dense Sal forest brimming with exotic flora and fauna, an ancient 1,000-year old fort and a reclining statue of Lord Vishnu. Located just 10 minutes from the Park entrance, Mahua Kothi is close to major airports—Khajuraho (143 miles, 230 km) and Jabalpur (118 miles, 190 km), and is 143 miles (230 km) away from the Kanha Tiger Reserve.
