Jawai accommodation - JAWAI Camp
Lying just minutes upstream of the Jawai Bandh, one of western Rajasthan’s largest reservoirs which attracts migratory birds, including flamingo, geese and cranes, Jawai Camp sits in a landscape of rocky outcrops, caves and scrub – the perfect habitat for leopard. A thriving population of them lives in this region and the chance of spotting leopard here is among the highest in India, especially with the camps expert naturalists and trackers to guide you.
Sightings still sometimes remain elusive - the probability of seeing the felines is close to 75% over a three night stay but while leopard are the primary attraction, on morning and afternoon game drives in customised open jeeps you may also be lucky enough to spot wolf, antelope, crocodile and sloth bear. You are also likely to come across Rabari shepherds, dressed traditionally in white save for their crimson turbans, whose livestock are easy prey if not herded to safety each night. The camp subsidises a visiting vets’ surgery catering to local livestock farmers, part of its commitment to working with and benefitting the local community.
Being so close to the magnificent fort at Kumbhalgarh and the exquisitely carved Jain temples at Ranakpur the luxury tented camp is ideally situated to provide a ‘wildlife and wilderness’ experience and flirt with adventure between the heritage and cultural highlights of Jodhpur and Udaipur.
Staying true to the Sujan ethos of conserving the local environment and culture without compromising comfort, each of the eight tents has an abundance of space and privacy. White canvas, dark leather and shining stainless steel give a 1930’s feel, there’s a personal touch in the form of wildlife photography by owners Jaisal and Anjali Singh on the walls, and private decks look out across the surrounding wilderness. Cameras and 'His and Her' binoculars are gifted to guests during their stay to enhance your experience.
An inviting Dining Tent, Library and a Spa Tent tucked peacefully away offer the chance to completely unwind complete while walking with the Rabari is a unique insight into pastoral life in rural Rajasthan.
