Enjoy an exciting Indian jungle safari at The Oberoi Vanyavilas
The north of India is a vast land of desert and jungle, a land of fertile plains filled with villages and farms, and land of wetland and swamps where tigers hunt. All of these contradictory settings can sometimes be found within an hour’s drive of each other, and that is nearly the case in the mountains and valleys of Ranthambhore. Just a hundred miles southeast of the metropolis of Jaipur, the Indian state of Rajasthan develops numerous hills and valleys, made beautiful by erosion, and the Ranthambhore National Park and Tiger Reserve, established in 1980, is located in one of these valleys made thick with forest. Just north of the park, where the plains runup to the hills, you can find a grand garden and a superb boutique hotel called the Oberoi Vanyavilas Ranthambhore.
The Vanyavilas is laid out on twenty acres of gardens near a watering hole favoured by the local wildlife that lives in the park, and an observation tower looking south allows the guests of the hotel to take in a panoramic view of the Ranthambhore hills. During your stay at Vanyavilas, you can explore the luxurious grounds of the hotel and discover the lily pond near the northern end, the mango orchard in the east, the hotel’s amphitheatre in the west, and the beautiful 12-meter temperature-controlled swimming pool in the centre of the estate. Your concierge will be happy to guide you around the grounds accompanied by the hotel’s own horticulturalists, as well as provide bespoke tours of the Ranthambhore Park and the neighbouring region.
