SherBagh Ranthambhore was among India’s first luxury tented camps
Luxury and authentic safari life awaits at Sujan’s SherBagh Ranthambhore. Twelve private tent sites provide an unforgettable experience. Bordering the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve, this 1920’s style camp is equipped with comfort and fittings true to a lost age of imperial safari life.
Ten luxury tents enclose the lawn area. Each hand-stitched canvas tent is air-conditioned. A veranda with Edwardian dark wood and leather campaign furniture fronts each tent. Through a bamboo door lies the spacious bedroom, a large bed piled high with plump cushions is accompanied by campaign desk and other period pieces. The en-suite stone bathroom is complete with brass fittings and hot water shower. Attendants are standing by to answer the butler bell at your bedside.
Hand built stone walls surround the Luxury Pukka Sahib Suite, enclosing a private garden, Jacuzzi and open air shower. A private butler will serve you on your fully netted veranda, enabling a pest-free evening lounge.
A private butler is also provided to see to your every need if you stay at the finest lodgings of SherBagh Ranthambhore, the Royal Burra Sahib Suite. Grassed walls provide complete privacy while you relax under the neem trees or take a dip in the private heated swimming pool.
Safari Style Dinning Provides a Magical Evening
Arboreal lanterns line the pathways as you make your way under the spectacular starry night to the evening campfire for an authentic safari diner. Not in the mood for company? Guests can enjoy their meals served at any of the secluded spots around the property.
Cuisine includes 3-course western lunches with a dinner of traditional Indian fare. SherBagh uses fresh local ingredients produced on their private farm and their herb and vegetable garden. Guests are encouraged to participate in cooking the safari dinner, which is performed at the campfire live.
Explore the Famous National Park and Tiger Reserve
SherBagh is located on the border of Ranthambhore National Park, one of the finest places in the world to experience wildlife. The majestic Bengal Tiger is the main attraction at Ranthambhore with frequent sightings. These powerful big cats have become used to safari vehicles and humans, allowing visitors to view and photograph them on the prowl or lounging about during the day. Daily morning and afternoon safari’s depart from SherBagh, maximizing your chance to view the park’s inhabitants. Despite the park’s reputation as Tiger Park, they are by far not the only inhabitants. Abundant are other big cats such as leopards. You will also be delighted by the Striped Hyenas, Sambar deers, langurs, Macaques, Jackals and Sloth bears to name a few.
Hilltop Ranthambhore Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, provides the opportunity to tour streets winding among stone structures and soaring ramparts. You will feel transported back to the time of the Raj’s as you behold the unequalled view of the park and Lake Padam Talau spreading out below you.
Ornithology enthusiasts will delight in the park’s 350 species of birds. A short jeep ride through the bush and jungle will bring you to Soorwal Lake, home to waders, ducks and flocks of migratory birds just waiting to be photographed.
After a day out on safari, the songs of local birds provide a relaxing background to a stop at the SherBagh Spa where therapists can provide services from reflexology to full body massage. The master trained therapists using both modern and traditional techniques put any Raj’s staff from the past to shame.
