Waghoba Eco Lodge is a 12 acre property set beautifully in an untraversed area in the buffer zone of Tadoba National Park, Maharashtra, India. Waghoba Eco Lodge attempts to set new standards of eco-friendliness and conscious luxury.

The cottages at Waghoba have been crafted by drawing inspiration from the very best of eco-construction. Sustainability is ingrained in each aspect of its construction, with each cottage having been built meticulously with handmade Adobe bricks, local stone & Guna vault roofs.
