Tour Highlights

Chance to see tiger and leopards on the same tour.

Private tour of the Fort.

Witness authentic rural life

Services of expert Naturalists.

Back in the early 2000's, rumours drifted across from rural southern Rajasthan, that there was a new big cat paradise in India and this was one where the Leopard - not the Tiger - ruled! It is important to remember that tiger sanctuaries are far from the best place to see leopards as they are out competed by their striped cousins. A visit to the Bera region of Rajasthan, is like stepping back in time two hundred years. The traditional Rabari trbes still make a living from their colourful goat herds and it is these goats that form a large part of the Leopards diet. Astonishing levels of tolerance by local villages to see beautiful spotted cats have created an unofficial sanctuary for leopards and it has become one of our very favourite wildlife locations in India - Yes, we are regular visitors!
