in the state of Rajasthan is one finest places in the world to
see wild tigers. Its name comes from the vast fort, a citadel
in the middle of the forest. The fort was in existence in the
8th century and the area around is littered with ruins: lake palaces,
ancient step wells, cupolas, guard posts, temples and memorial
stones, all bear witness to Ranthambhore's varied and fascinating
history. Emperor Akbar fought a battle here for the control
of the fort in the 16th century. An 18th century traveller described
the fort as being famous throughout India, well protected, completely
inacessible, concealed in mountainous regions where the ridges
were high and surrounded the entire fort, leaving only the thick
forest gorges below as entrances and exists which could be defended.
Today this tract of land has another ruler: the tiger haunts the
narrow gorges of the fort and has even been known to venture atop
the turn of the century the Ranthambhore forests had become the
private hunting reserves of the Maharajas of Jaipur. Hunting
was banned in 1971 and a few years later, Project Tiger was launched.
Few knew then that Ranthambhore would become the finest tiger
in the world
family has played an active part in the conservation effort at
Ranthambhore since 1974 and continues to do so more than 40 years

motion, evolving with the changing narrative of this magical land.
Sher Bagh is a pioneering, tented camp of 12 luxurious tents nestling
on the borders of the world–renowned Ranthambhore National Park.
Inspired by the safari encampments of the 1920s, preferred by
Princes and Grand Seigneurs of the time, each tent is furnished
with 19th century 'Campaign Style' furniture and has all the comforts
you could wish for on safari. Sher Bagh was among India’s first
luxury tented camps. It promotes sustainable tourism, is ecologically
friendly, provides high levels of service and a faultless Ranthambhore
experience. An award winning camp and one of the first members
of Relais & Châteaux in India, Sher Bagh is globally acknowledged
as the most charming and authentic place to stay in Ranthambhore.
We invite you to share our passion for the wild and perhaps help
preserve this corner of the planet’s living paradise.
classic safari camp is reminiscent of the shikar camps and the
bandobast of another age. Pitched under a canopy of indigenous
trees, all planted by our family over the last three decades,
the camp pays tribute to our core values of giving back to nature

the tents. The founding vision is clear, Sher Bagh is the soul

experienced. Our 12 hand–stitched canvas tents reflect the style
of the 1920s and evoke nostalgic sensibilities of life on safari
during the heyday of the Raj. The camp is furnished in Edwardian
campaign style furniture, which famously decked the future King
of England, Edward VIIIth’s celebrated tour of India’s wild heartlands
in 1921. Our bathrooms and showers have been described as ‘a hedonists
delight’ while others have called Sher Bagh’s design ‘the most
sonorous note in Ranthambhore’s symphony’.

of luxury comes with its own private walled–in garden, Jacuzzi
and open–air tree shower. The feeling here is a rich evocation
of Edwardian Raj on safari. As with the ‘Burra Sahib’, the finest
campaign style furniture adorns the space. Areas for lounging
in between and after game drives, in serene and quiet privacy,
are guaranteed and the beds are the most comfortable you will

butler attends to your every need.
TENTS Recently refurbished and enlarged, our 10–tented suites
are more spacious than ever before. Larger in size, each air–conditioned
tent has its own veranda, appointed with campaign furniture, to
