North India and Rajasthan camps - Khem Villas
With a father who was one of India’s leading tiger experts regarded as a founder of Ranthambhore, Goverdhan Singh Rathore has continued the family’s commitment to tiger conservation and sustainable tourism. Together with his wife Usha he established Khem Villas on 10 acres of barren land just a short jeep ride from the entrance to the national park. After years of replanting and nurturing indigenous species grasslands and gardens rich in wildlife surround the chic cottages and tents.
As you drive into the camp you pass a large organic vegetable garden which supplies produce for the table, the majority of staff are local and the owners are respected by the community for whom they helped establish a hospital and school as well as afforestation and dairy farming projects. Even if none of this is of interest then you can simply enjoy Khem Villas for its stylish accommodation dressed with Anokhi hand printed fabrics, peaceful and tranquil surroundings, friendly staff and set menus of delicious vegetarian only cuisine all just minutes from the most well-known tiger sanctuary in the world. In the main lodge you'll find a small library and bar
Between safaris a range of therapies is on offer in the spa, there is a small swimming pool and nature walks in the surrounding forest in the company of a camp naturalist.
