So - having done the 'And Beyond' in Africa - a superb trip. Unfortunately for India this set a high bar and also conversely the 'Taj' name sets expectations. Not as 'up market' as I expected. Either advertise as 'basic' for meals as we were told when we arrived or lift up (which should not be hard to do -...

After travelling the 2nd time through India for 20 days, my wife and me spent 2 nights in Bandhavgarhs „Mahua Kothi Cottage“. The "TAJ" name is their label: in 2 words: Just wonderful!

It's hard to believe that you are in the jungle when you stay at this lodge. The room was outstanding and the setting outstanding. The staff could not do more. The food served at the lodge was wonderful and fresh

Location- beautifully located surrounding jungle and the premise itself looks like jungle. The entrance surrounded by bushes, it takes 5 min to reach the hotel premise crossing rough exciting terrain. Rooms- any amount of praise will be less. You have to be there to feel it. Decently sized wooden tents with glass roof, highly comfortable and spacious wash room with...

We couldn’t be more grateful than we are to hear such lovely words from a satisfied guest like yourself. Taj Safaris lodges were conceived to deliver an exclusive, authentic and safe wilderness experience coupled with local hospitality. We indeed feel that every guest that chooses to stay with us deserves no less than the best and this is exactly what...

Mahua Kothi Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge was truly a great place to stay. We were here with a group of friends to see the wild tigers. Our room was very comfortable. The king-size bed was great. Loved having two sinks in the room and the shower with the large shower head was fantastic. The separate bathtub was also very nice for...

Banjaar Tola is a luxury mud-brick game lodge located on the outskirts of Bandhavgarh national park in India. The property is made up of a pool area, office/library building, a main lodge and then 20 or so mud-brick luxury cabanas spread out over the property.

I just got back from Mahua Kothi and had a really wonderful experience. Everyone was incredibly helpful and the hospitality was unbelievable. I traveled alone and was a little nervous at first but Taj safaris made the experience completely comfortable. They arranged a driver (Mr. Jay) who picked me up from the airport at Jabalpur in a very comfortable car...

In short, we can't wait to return. The kutiya was perfect in every way, just right for the two of us. Clean, comfortable, cool and luxurious in and out. The lodge dining was excellent, but we also had a few meals in our room and our own private courtyard. Ramayan was awesome, we arrived feeling a bit under the weather...
