    Mr. Dilip D. Khatau of Khatau Business House started the Group’s first wild life resort, Infinity Corbett Wilderness (formerly known as Tiger Tops Corbett Lodge)in 1991 located along the banks of Kosi River at the fringe of Corbett National Park. This eco-friendly tourism project was first of its kind, and in recognition of this, the Government of India appointed Mr. Khatau on the Board of Uttar Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation. This property, tastefully designed and having one of the best locations for a wildlife resort in India, is the most sought after resort among the nature lovers in India and abroad.
    The Khatau Business House was among the pioneers of the textile industry in India way back in 1874 and cement industry in 1920. Being the leader in the manufacturing of various varieties of saris, the famous voile sari was at one time synonymous with the name “Khatau”.

    As the scion of the 4th generation of the powerful Khatau Business House, Mr. Dilip D. Khatau was instrumental in venturing overseas to East Africa and South East Asia in 1964. Eventually, in 1990s, the Dilip Khatau Group further diversified extensively in India into the production of footwear, cement, power cables, chemicals and shipping. Since 1994, the Group concentrated on shipping, tourism and wildlife conservation. An ardent wildlife lover since his childhood, Mr. Khatau’s passion took him to many wilderness areas such as Corbett National Park in India. During his 15 years of stay in Kenya, and later in South East Asia, his passion for wildlife hunting turned to serious wildlife protection and nature conservation. He later became an active member of the East African Wildlife Society. He was highly impressed by the way wildlife tourism had proliferated and gained popularity in Africa which had not taken off in India then. He dreamt of similar ventures in India where tourists can enjoy being in the wild, and at the same time, relax in the luxury and comfort of home. He is also a member of the National Board for Wildlife, India.

    In 1991, he started the Group’s first wildlife resort, Infinity Corbett Wilderness (formerly known as Tiger Tops Corbett Lodge), located along the banks of Kosi River at the fringe of Corbett National Park. This eco-friendly tourism project was first of its kind, and in recognition of this, the Government of India appointed Mr. Khatau on the Board of Uttar Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation. This property, tastefully designed and having one of the best locations for a wildlife resort in India, is the most sought after resort among the nature lovers in India and abroad.

    With vast experience in both hospitality industry and wildlife conservation, the Group expanded its operations to the semi arid and unique landscape of Kutch, Gujarat. Thus, Infinity Rann of Kutch resort was established in 2008. The property with its elegant tented cottages is like an oasis in the desert! In October 2009, the group’s third resort, Infinity Bandhavgarh Wilderness, situated along the periphery of the famous Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Madhya Pradesh, was opened. Infinity Bandhavgarh Wilderness is set amidst thick bamboo groves and natural vegetation. By the end of 2010, two more resorts will be added to the Group. They are located close to Kanha Tiger Reserve (Madhya Pradesh) and Kaziranga Tiger Reserve (Assam) and will be named as Infinity Kanha Wilderness and Infinity Kaziranga Wilderness, respectively. Conservation Corporation of India Pvt. Ltd. (CCIPL) was set up in 2009 as a holding company for the various resorts that the Group owns or will own in future with Mr. Khatau as its Chairman.

    The Corbett Foundation (TCF), established in 1994, is a brain-child of Mr. Khatau. This Foundation is a testimony to his passion and heartfelt interest in the preservation of our natural heritage. With its mandate to preserve wildlife and nature with the involvement of the local communities, great work has been done at the grassroots-level work in and around Corbett and Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserves and also in Kutch. In conclusion, CCIPL and TCF are actually two sides of the same coin – the former complements and provides synergy to the latter. CCIPL strongly believes that conservation can only be achieved by involving the local stakeholders, providing them with employment opportunities and finally to lead a sustainable and harmonious lifestyle with nature. That’s why we say – Conservation is our business!

    A journey called PUGMARKS
    For the last eleven tears, we at Pugmarks, have been fortunate to have found acceptance with a very large number of families who send their children with us to explore the wilderness. And what we help these children explore is more than just forts, forests, mountains, birds and animals. They, in-fact explore their “own self”!!!

    On Pugmarks camps, these children participate in activities and discover their skills in the skits they put up; discuss and debate topics on resources conservation and saving tiger’s habitats, where they find a platform for their hidden opinions and voices; present song and dance performances and are amazed by their own talents; participate in adventure to overcome their innate fears during river crossing, rappelling, and obstacle courses; and learn to bond together to become wonderful team players.

    When these little kids come back from the Pugmarks camps, their parents are surprised to see them transformed into young men and women who have added years to their ages.
    These youngsters eventually go on to participate on many more camps – more as a habit that they have picked up. Parents in turn are happy that their children have taken up a “safe habit” instead of the many “distractions” that are easily available at their age.

    Many of these youngsters also choose to become Volunteers with Pugmarks. These young shoulders are taught to take up big responsibilities and soon enough, learn to lead groups of young campers. The training for these young volunteers is rigorous and demanding. But the outcome is shining heroines and heroes who become idols for the little campers to follow.

    As far as we at Pugmarks are concerned, this is one memorable journey of the lifetime for all of us. We only seem to get energized by all these youngsters, who in fact help us discover the child in us – at Pugmarks, your age is exactly what your mind thinks it to be!

    We look forward to many more years of exploration in your company – the beautiful little people of this planet. Your smiles, laughs, screams and shrieks give us the satisfaction that we taking the right course.

    Long live the spirit of discovery!!!
