If you’re one for adventure, Ranthambore should be your next stop. There are few places on earth that combine a profusion of wildlife with valuable historical heritage and Ranthambhore National Park is a fine example of that. It lies at the junction of two iconic hill ranges, the Aravallis and the Vindhyas. It is one of the finest places in the world to encounter wild tigers that roam the dry deciduous, dry thorn forest.
Sher Bagh, located at the edge of the Ranthambore National Park is an eco-friendly luxury resort. It is the perfect place if you’re looking for the ultimate Indian jungle camp experience. Inspired by the safari encampments of the 1920s, preferred by Princes and Grand Seigneurs of the time, the safari camp is reminiscent of the shikar camps and the bandobast of another age. Pitched under a canopy of indigenous trees, all planted over the last three decades, the camp pays tribute to the core values of giving back to nature by remaining small and compact, encompassing the surrounding wilderness. While the white cotton canvas tents are furnished with beautifully handcrafted campaign furniture in original rosewood and teak, they’re mindful of promoting sustainable, ecologically-friendly tourism, high levels of service and an impeccable Ranthambhore experience.
With 12 hand-stitched tents and vintage furniture, the camp makes an effort to recreate the era of British safari campaigns. The comforts haven’t been compromised, though. Each tent has air-conditioning, a bathroom, and a private verandah, and a private jacuzzi. The property is also equipped with a spa, swimming pool, Wi-Fi and an organic garden from where you can pick fresh produce for your meals.
The mysteries of the ultimate Big Cat weave their way into the design of the camp, making an appearance in print and thread throughout the tents. Sher Bagh is the soul where stories are told and memories shared around the campfire, and where every guest is welcomed into a home.
