Bandhavgarh – Mahua Kothi2018-03-05T04:21:31+00:00

Mahua Kothi

Boasting one of India’s highest density of tigers, Bandhavgarh is one of the subcontinent’s best places for big cat viewing. Named after a beautiful native tree, Mahua Kothi offers luxury accommodation in 12 charming guest suites – built in traditional style – spread over 40 private acres just 20 minutes from the national park entrance.

Designed to look like traditional village huts (called “kutiyas”) from the outside, each of the suites at Mahua Kothi features rustic construction. Expect mud-and-stone walls finished in lime, wooden shutters on windows and locally handcrafted textiles in shades of rust. Yet all have contemporary luxuries such as twin hand basins in the bathrooms, ceiling fans and air-conditioning.

Spend your time here practising yoga – a basket of equipment is provided in-room complete with instructions. For fresh air, bicycles are available for use in your private courtyard. You can also enjoy a dip in the pool, depart on an open vehicle safari through Bandhavgarh or embark on an informative nature walk with the resident naturalist. For an insight into rural local life, tour a tiny tribal village, which Mahua Kothi supports through community development initiatives.

India Wildlife Safaris and Tours Overview

Why India Wildlife Reserves Safaris & Tours: India’s wildlife reserves are a haven for many remarkable and endangered creatures like tiger, rhino, leopard and sloth bear. A wildlife safari combines beautifully with India’s cultural highlights.

When to Go:
Bandhavgarh National Park:
Feb – May is the best time for gameviewing; the park is closed from early Jul to end Oct.
Corbett National Park: The best time for tiger viewing is the dry months of Apr – mid Jun, when wildlife come out in search of water. The best birdwatching is between Dec – Feb.
Ranthambhore National Park: The best time to go is in winter (Dec – Feb) and Mar/Apr. The park is closed during the monsoon; it reopens on 1 Oct.
Kanha National Park: Best time to visit is Mar – Jun. Park closed during monsoon from beginning Jul – Oct. Also closed midday to give respite to wildlife.
Kaziranga National Park: Best visited from mid-November to early April. The low-lying grasslands are flooded during the monsoon. During the floods, the animals migrate to higher, drier ground.
Periyar and Nagarhole National Parks: The best time to go is in the cool dry months (Oct- Feb) and during the hotter months of Mar/Apr for elephant viewing. The park is open during the monsoon period (June – Sep); but it is not the best season for spotting game.

Combine With: Safaris to India’s wildlife reserves are usually part of a general sightseeing itinerary which include India’s many cultural and historic attractions. They can also be combined with the wildlife parks of neighouring Nepal, Bhutan or Sri Lanka.

Getting There: The national parks of northern India can be accessed from major cities such as Delhi, Jaipur and Guwahati (Kaziranga). In South India, Periyar and Nagarhole/Kabini can be reached from Kochi, usually as part of an overland itinerary.
