Sher Bagh, Ranthambhore
Sher Bagh is the perfect place for those looking for the ultimate in authentic Indian jungle camps. The tents, each with their own little verandah, are arranged in a semi-circle around a garden and tented pavilion, in keeping with their surroundings.
The spacious, airy main lodge has a sitting area and an excellent library-bar on the upper level, ideal for a beer or bloody-mary between jungle drives.
The food at Sher Bagh is delicious, cooked using freshly picked produce from the camp’s organic vegetable garden. A hearty breakfast of eggs and bacon, or fresh fruit, yogurt and muesli – and of course, the freshly baked bread and home-made marmalade – awaits you after your morning game drive. A quick, light and usually Italian lunch before you set off again and a traditional Indian dinner, on thaalis in the flickering glow of candles and mashaals, after drinks around the campfire. You can also dine, al-fresco, around the fire which is a unique experience at Sher Bagh.
