What we love: the colonial style in a jungle setting.
Once the hunting ground of the Maharajahs of Jaipur, the Sujan family have played an important role in the conservation efforts here since 1974. The camp is ecologically friendly and promotes sustainable tourism.
Sher Bagh, which is situated on the edge of the Park, consists of 12 luxury tents including 2 suites all of which are decorated in a 1920’s campaign style with bespoke furniture made from teak and rosewood. Extremely comfortable with lovely ensuite shower rooms, you will find a desk to write about your day’s adventures, a butler bell by your bed and a verandah with seating on which to sit and listen to the noises of the jungle. The Royal ‘Burra Sahib’ Suite is set behind a grassed wall and offers the ultimate in privacy with its own heated swimming pool and butler. Enjoy the sweeping views from your verandah. There is also the Luxury ‘Pukka Sahib’ suite within a walled garden shaded by trees. There is a jacuzzi and an open air shower with a seating area perfect for spotting the abundant birdlife. Your private butler will take care of all your needs and you are just a short walk from the camp fire which is situated in glade lit with lanterns in the evening.
The food is a highlight of your stay here with delicious breakfasts, lunch consisting of Anglo-Indian and International recipes and traditional Indian dinners are often served around the camp fire in the evenings. Private tables can be set up in a variety of locations around the camp. Often the food is cooked in the clay ovens near the camp fire and guests are able to participate if desired. The well stocked bar is situated here – perfect for a cocktail in the evening. Tea is always on offer when you return from your safari drive and again this may be in a number of different locations. You will definitely not go hungry here!
There is a lovely swimming pool and an excellent spa and the abundant, organic vegetable garden is well worth a walk around. The camp retains a feeling of being in the jungle and there are many lovely spots to sit and rest or read dotted amongst the trees and plants. Incredible tiger photographs taken by Jaisal Singh or his wife Anjali, the owners of Sujan, hang in the main lodge which houses the dining room, a library and a lovely shop. Wooden walking sticks and khaki safari hats remind you of why you are here.
