Ranthambore

Ranthambore National Park is one of the biggest and most renowned national parks in Northern India. The park is located in the Sawai Madhopur district of southeastern Rajasthan, which is about 130 km from Jaipur. Being considered as one of the famous and former hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur, today the Ranthambore National Park terrain is major wildlife tourist attraction spot that has pulled the attention of many wildlife photographers and lovers in this destination.

Ranthambore National park is spread over an area of 1,334 sq. km along with its nearby sanctuaries like - the Mansingh Sanctuary and the Kaila Devi Sanctuary. The park is predominantly famous for its tigers and is one of the best locations in India to see the majestic predators in their natural habitat. The tigers can be easily spotted even during the day time busy at their ordinary quest- hunting and taking proper care of their young ones.

The Ranthambhore National Park at the junction of the Aravalis and the Vindhyas, is a unique unison of natural and historical richness, standing out conspicuously in the vast, arid and denuded tract of eastern Rajasthan, barely 14 km from the town, Sawai Madhopur. It spreads over a highly undulating topography varying from gentle to steep slopes; from flat topped hills (Indala, Doodh-Bhat and Chiroli) of the Vindhyas to hillocks and sharp ridges of the Aravalis; from wide and flat valleys (Lahpur, Nalghati, Khachida, Anantpur etc.) to narrow rocky gorges. The park boasts of an important geological feature known as the Great Boundary fault where the Vindhyas meet with the ancient Aravalis.

Ranthambore is also counted as the famous heritage site because of the pictorial ruins that dot the wildlife park. Certainly, a visit to Ranthambore National Park is a treat for every wildlife and nature lover. The time spend on watching tigers roaming around, verdant greenery, a gamut of other species of chirpy birds and animals is priceless and worth enough to be explored at least once in a life.

Sherbagh - Ranthambhore

Sher Bagh is a pioneering, luxury tented camp neighbouring the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve. Our 12 hand-stitched canvas tents reflect the style of the 1920’s and arouse nostalgic evocations of life on safari during the heyday of the Raj. The camp is furnished in Edwardian, campaign style furniture, which famously decked the future King Edward VIIIth’s celebrated tour of India’s wild heartlands in 1921. Our showers and bathrooms have been described as “a hedonists delight” while others have called Sher Bagh “the most sonorous note in Ranthambhore’s symphony”.

Arboreal lanterns adorn the pathways and campfire that is lit every night. We pride ourselves on our outdoor dining experiences where, surrounded by acres of wild grasses and under the dome of a starlit sky our guests eat off traditional thaali’s while engaging in the jungle gossip of the day. We also host meals in more secluded areas of the Camp for those looking to spend a more private evening by themselves.

Our cuisine combines sumptuous western lunches with traditional Indian dinners cooked over clay ovens. The nourishing home-grown ingredients, hand picked from our Organic Herb and Vegetable Garden and the Sher Bagh Farm are guaranteed to open your taste buds to an entirely new gastronomical experience. Live cooking – in which guests are invited to participate – is an enduring feature of camp life and one of the most relaxing ways to round off a day tracking wildlife in the jungle.

The Library Bar, on the upper storey of the Main Building is a retreat, within a retreat; a perfect spot to unwind in between Game Drives or at the end of your safari. Wireless facilities in this area ensure you remain connected with your world, even in the wilderness and Portraits of individual tigers we have shared our lives with adorn the walls of the main lodge.
