Mojo Plantation was founded in 1994 by Drs Sujata and Anurag Goel. Sujata has a PhD. from the Botany Dept of Delhi University and Anurag has completed his studies (PhD. in Molecular Biology) in Toronto, Canada.

Together, we left behind the rat race of urban living to explore an organic way of life and a more harmonious existence with nature.

Our previous research experience in the fields of biological sciences includes botany, plant biochemistry, genetics, ecology and molecular biology. We have lived and worked here for over 20 years and have traveled extensively throughout India as well as Europe and North America. Our scientific expertise and extensive knowledge of this region will provide you valuable insights into the ecology of this region and culture of its people and our hospitality will ensure that you will want to come back again.
