Sher Bagh (Ranthambore)
A more intimate camp than most of its high-end competitors, the circle of tents still all have their own patios. The complex has a hacienda feel to it, and it gets incredibly atmospheric in the evening as lanterns glow and you can hear the wildlife. The tents have fans for cooling down after being out in the sun.
Sher Bagh is a pioneering camp of luxurious tents nestling by the world renowned Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve. It is ideally situated for game drives and excursions into the finest habitat in the world to see tigers in the wild. Discover the 8th century fort of Ranthambhore, a Unesco World Heritage Site, Mughal ruins, palaces and cenotaphs. With a collective experience of over 40 years, we offer an unsurpassed game experience. When not out in the wild, relax by our swimming pool, offering vistas of the landscape. Our cuisine combines British-Raj style lunches and traditional Indian dinners cooked over clay ovens using nourishing home-grown ingredients, handpicked from our organic garden.
Sher Bagh raises awareness among their suppliers about using natural, traditional and organic farming methods and a ‘no plastic’ policy. Important work is carried out in collaboration with governmental wildlife protection agencies and NGOs: the property provides them with resources and manpower for their critical work in conservation. Indigenous plants are nurtured and grown throughout the grounds. The property’s own foundation, “SNS”, supports local development by helping locals develop new skills to boost their employability. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, solar energy and waste fed fuel is used for heating and electricity, and seafood does not figure on the menu; the sea is just too far away.
The most populous areas for India’s tigers are the national parks of Bandhavgarh and Kanha, and with the right guide, it’s very likely that you will see one of these magnificent animals in the wild. The easiest way to see them up close is to ride with the elephant drivers – mahouts – who can get closer thanks to the unthreatening presence of their mounts.
