Taj Mahua Kothi A Taj Safari Bandhavgarh National Park

Mahua Kothi, A Taj Safari - Bandhavgarh National Park

5 Star Jungle Safari Resort in Bandhavgarh National Park

Mahua Kothi or homestead is named after the Mahua tree which is prized and revered in the region. Our jungle safari resort in Bandhavgarh National Park has 12 standalone luxury cottages blend into a 45 acre private forest on the periphery of the national park. The guest area overlooks a large grassland where monkeys and birds in vivid colours are a regular feature. The mud cottages or ‘Kutiyas’ are built in the local style of architecture. A bean shaped pool screened by a bamboo thicket and shaded by Mahua trees is perfect for cooling off at midday. The guest areas are housed in a large brick building with deep verandas overlooking a grassland ringed by a forest patch. The dining hall has a large fireplace to keep guests warm during chilly winter evenings. Guests delight in picking fresh vegetables and fruit from the lodge’s private organic gardens for a salad. A select menu of treatments offered by professional in-house masseurs is the perfect indulgence to top off a safari holiday.

The land of Tigers
Our stay at Mahua Kothi couldn’t have been better.The lodge is exceptionally beautiful and the service is even better.The experience of hospitality at Taj is completely different as the staff and the property have so much to give and add to the whole wildlife experience. Mr.Amit the Lodge Manager was extremely warm and made sure we were at ease after the long journey.Chef Ajit’s culinary brilliance made every meal of ours exceptional I must say, he knew just want we really wanted.Mr. Vishnu made our stay and everything else so hassle free and really comfortable.Our talks with Mr. Bhola in the dining hall were a lot of fun too. The safari next day with Mr.Raj the Head Naturalist was a amazing experience, our motive was to enjoy the jungle’s beauty and we certainly did.The modified safari jeep was really comfortable and so was the lovely bonnet breakfast.The team at Taj is extremely sensitive to the environment and do their best to preserve it as well.Even the orientation with with the Naturalists Raj and Kartikeya were really interactive and knowledgeable. We can’t wait to visit Mahua Kothi soon!

Most scintillating experience
Taj Safaris are the best in wildlife escapes. Luxury personified. Mahua Kothi is a 45 acre property of pure BLISS. The cottages are mud finish huts with most expressive sit outs . The interiors are pure MAGIC and dreamy. Each and every detail of the concept has been well though about. The house keeping is par excellence. The Staff is most receptive and positive.They make yu feel so at-home.A real eco resort. Hospitality taken to the highest levels. Mr Amit the GM is most forthcoming , Chef Ajit the most professional in all cusines, Vishnu and Bhola butlers with neverending warmth and above all the most exelerating experience of the TAJ SAFARIS with the best Naturalist Raj Kishore who was most informative and also very patient with all our queries. Each and every part of the safari was an episode set apart right from the most comfortable and aptly modified safari vehicle the 4x4 Tata Xenon to the elaborate bonnet breakfast in the middle of wilderness. Raj Kishore has a plethora of Knowledge, experience and above all most exciting real-life stories. The briefing on Indian wildlife and the tailor made presentation in the Tiger is awesome. The camp dinner with lanterns under the Mahua Tree had us spellbound. These people really put that extra bit of effort for us never experienced. A holiday of a life time with my family never seen before. ONE TAJ SAFARIS ALWAYS TAJ SAFARIS. You guys have WON our hearts . We shall be back .
