Guests on Safari in India




And then Bandhavgarh..... wow! In my opinion, Mahua Kothi is the most African of the four lodges, in the way that you're surrounded by yellow grasslands (at the end of the dry season anyway!) and there are big comfy chairs from which to enjoy sundowners while taking in the views. Jugdeep was our naturalist there, and he looked after us tirelessly - and he found us our tiger, on our penultimate game drive. And what a tiger! The experience was made all the more special as we'd built up for it over the previous drives in Pench, Kanha and Bandhavgarh and seen plenty of evidence of tiger activity like massive scratch marks high up on the tree trunks and imprints in the sandy tracks where one had enjoyed a snooze (you could even see the outline of the tail!). And finally, as the sun was beginning to head off for the night, a stunning 4-year-old male sauntered out of the forest on his way to the watering hole. And we were right there. With it being Holi time, the park was busy with lots of local families and we felt a bit like the paparazzi, but the tiger took it all in his stride, barely breaking his step... I have been lucky in that I had seen a tiger before (in Ranthambore, about 14 years ago), but this one was so much closer and I will treasure this moment for the rest of my life.

"This was a truly magical, wonderful 4 night stay for our family.
More than anything, we were so touched by how hard the chef -- and indeed everyone at Mahua Koth -- worked to make our 8-year old daughter feel so very special, just like a little princess.
Gaurav (Naturalist) suggested that he would take us on a walk through the lodge property and show us their vegetable garden. Well, at the end of the walk, Gaurav pulls out a little table and a cooler and pours us all a cold beer. Wow, that was nice. Even better, with a twinkle in his eyes, he asks our daughter if she can identify that plant over there. He's found a little tree, and hung all over it little truffles that he's covered in foil to look like giant Hershey's kisses. He looks at our daughter and says, yup, that's a chocolate tree, and it's in fruit now, you'd better go pick some. What a special thing!"

"“… Somehow MK manages to exude the perfect combination of relaxation and quiet efficiency which one longs for at so many other places. The rosepetal bath and G&T were most welcome. Altogether a faultless organisation. A wonderful stay.”"

"We stayed at Mahau Kothi for three nights in february 2012. This place is just amazing!!! the kutiyas are stunning, with the most comfortable bed i have ever slept on!! and windows so clean it looks like there isn't any glass there!!! ( i did ask for their secret!). And the staff.....wow...where do i start with the staff!!! at every level, they cannot do enough for you. Our naturalist, Allwyn was incredible, whatever question we fired at him, he had the answer for….
the food too was extremly good, with our evening dinner being served at a different location within the lodge's grounds every night. Mahua Kothi's manager Neel also needs a mention. A place is only as good as it's staff, and Neel clearly leads by example. I have never known of a manager who is willing to get up at 4am to see his guests off!!! "
