Discover the beautiful jungle of Bandhavgarh National Park and learn about the rich biodiversity of Central India. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, replete with adventure, impeccable service and lush luxury.
The name Mahua Kothi draws its inspiration from one of India’s most beautiful trees, the Madhuca Indica or butter tree. The lodge sprawls over the 17 hectare grounds, just 20 minutes from the park entrance.
The 12 charming guest suites are built in the vernacular style of Central India and each is accessed through private courtyards with shaded seating and traditional mud floors. Interiors include wooden shutters, tapered mud coloured walls in lime and earth washes and open rafters with roughly hewn wooden beams.
Situated in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, Bandhavgarh National Park is a 450 km² renowned tiger reserve. Nestled among the picturesque Vindhya and Satpura ranges, this is one of India’s most beautiful national parks. The dramatic landscape features tropical forests and woodlands, and steep rocky hills with flat grasslands in the valleys below. An ancient 2000 year old fort, 10th-century statue of Lord Vishnu, and the dense Sal jungle combined with the grasslands make Bandhavgarh one of the most extraordinary parks in India.
The density of its tiger population has made Bandhavgarh world famous. The park is also home to a large variety of mammals: leopard, spotted deer, Sambar deer, nilgai, wild boar, chinkara, sloth bear, rhesus macaque, grey langur, jungle cat, hyena, porcupine, jackal, fox, and wild dog.
Includes: accommodation, all meals and
alcoholic drinks, jeep rides, elephant safari and park fees.
