Tucked away in the Pali district of Western Rajasthan, Jawai is all that travel-dreams are made of.
Fields of wheat and mustard swaying in the morning breeze, the echoing ring of the temple bell and the leopards that laze around watching the people go about their day – In a country with booming modernization and economic growth, Jawai still holds onto its organic essence and exists in harmony with the nature that surrounds its lands.
In May of 1949, Maharaja Umaid Singh of Jodhpur started to build, what is now the largest dam in Western Rajasthan on the river Jawai, which was one of the few significant signs of modernity in the area.
It is quite remarkable how such a seemingly dull village scene, when looked closely, can suddenly turn to an interesting window into a complex mélange of humanity, wildlife and our relationship with nature.
The luxurious leopard camps are located on a private farm of 120 acres near Jawai Dam which lies between Udaipur & Jodhpur. Five luxury Swiss tents furnished with all advanced/modern amenities with appointed attached bathrooms. The tents are cozy and ideal for a wildlife holiday. The campsite also happens to be the hosts home, a part of the farm is where his family lives and yet guests enjoy their privacy and engagement with the guest at the same time.
Delicious home cooked meals that come host’s kitchen with authentic Rajasthani flavors in the rural & rustic settings of the campsite. Experience wilderness as the Leopards of Jawai are worldwide famous for living in harmony with human settlements.
The mornings and evenings are occupied spotting leopards while the rest of the time one can enjoy the bird life at Jawai or shoot the sun basking crocodile with your lenses.
