Bandhavgarh National Park
Mahua Kothi is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Safari Lodges in Asia.
Mahua Kothi is the first luxury camp to be opened in India by the joint partnership of CC Africa and Taj Hotels. Mahua Kothi offers 12 beautiful Kutiyas (jungle village huts) - each is accessed through private courtyards with shaded seating, traditional swings and mud floors. The interiors include richly coloured local textiles in shades of rust and burnt orange, wooden shutters, mud-coloured walls in lime and earth washes, open rafters with roughly-hewn wooden beams and handmade pottery roof tiles. There is a swimming pool and beautiful open areas for dining and relaxation. The naturalists offer a superlative level of service when taking guests into the park. They focus not just on the larger mammals but also on understanding the whole ecosystem of the forest.
