Mahua Kothi, Bandhavgarh National Park

Some adventures begin in the most unexpected way. At Mahua Kothi, you may find your wildlife adventure starts in the most civilised manner; with tea. But waiting for you out in Bandhavgarh National Park are tigers. Not to mention leopard, jungle cats and wild dogs. An array of multi-coloured birds. Jackal, and black faced langur, porcupine and hyenas, deer and sloth bears. All yours to be viewed from the back of an elephant, or aboard a purposeful 4x4 game drive vehicle.

And back at ‘camp’ you can relive your adventures whilst lounging beside the pool, having a deeply relaxing massage, dining out under the stars on an elegant terrace or al fresco, on the riverbank.
