Whether in search of the infamous Indian tiger or the vast array
of bird life that calls it home, the subcontinent offers a sublime
range of luxury wildlife experiences.
Madhya Pradesh, at the heart of India, brings Rudyard Kipling's
'The Jungle Book' to life with lush foliage and numerous animal
species, especially the elusive Indian tiger. Discover Singinawa, a
family run lodge set in 55 acres of private wilderness, which has
become one of Kanha National Park's premier Eco-luxury properties.
The national park is also home to Sher Garh, an intimate 6 tented
camp set near a natural water reserve that attracts an array of
bird life, such as kingfishers and commorants and sees the seasonal
nesting of hundreds of egrets. Situated right at the heart of the
park is Taj Banjaar Tola, two tented luxury camps set along the
edge of the Banjaar River. Bandhavgarh National Park is also
considered one of the best vantage points to see the Tiger and at
Taj Mahua Kothi you can reside in one of the twelve charming guest
suites with private courtyards and beautiful interiors. Samode
Safari is also a popular choice.
It is not just the jungle that boasts stunning wildlife
experiences. JAWAI Leopard Camp sits between the cities of Jodhpur
and Udaipur, in an unexplored area of scrubland, surrounded by the
Aravelli hill range. Here guests can enjoy an almost 75% chance of
see leopards in the wild and can meet the local Rabari tribesmen
who have lived alongside the wildlife for centuries.

prettiest reserves and it perfectly located in Rajasthan, which can
