On the banks of the River Ken in Madhya Pradesh, eight tasteful rooms sit quietly cocooned within grassland and forest. This Absolute Air experience takes you to an intimate property spread across acres of beautiful countryside, primed for relaxing river explorations and wilderness walks. The Sarai at Toria is run by conservationists, and their earth-friendly approach translates into rustic-chic cottages, delicious organic meals, and a plethora of nature-based activities. On this 4-day private jet holiday, you’ll stay in charming mud-and-stone rooms built in the traditional architectural style, where you wake to birdsong and wind down under a sky full of stars
The Sarai is located in the vicinity of two fabulous sites: Khajuraho and the Panna National Park. With its fabled 1000-year-old sandstone temples, Khajuraho is an immensely important heritage site. Explore the complex on a guided tour to understand the stories behind the famously erotic carvings that adorn the temple facades. In sharp contrast, the Panna National Park is a rather underrated wildlife hotspot, filled with large cats, small critters, and raptors. A jeep safari through this wilderness introduces you to the myriad hues of Central India’s jungles, home to tigers, leopards, sloth bear, and a wealth of wildlife.
