Jawai Leopard Camp is an indulgently chic safari camp set within the remote wilderness of Rajasthan’s Jawai Hills, the land where the leopards roam wild and free. This 10-tent escape is an immersion into luxury and nature, a place where eco-tourism meets sophistication and the front-row thrill of the wild meets all of the contemporary pleasures and service of five-star accommodations.
Jawai Leopard Camp embodies a timeless way of camping—one that combines subtle opulence with abundant adventure. Ten tented suites under white canvas are spacious showcases of monochrome, leather, stainless steel, and king-size double beds backed by dramatic black-and-white photographs capturing the same leopards and wildlife guests are sure to see on their game drives. En-suite bathrooms boast double vanity units, high rain showers, endless amounts of hot water, and attractive furnishings handcrafted by celebrated artisan, Michael Aram. To top it off, private viewing decks, powerful Carl Zeiss binoculars, and semi-professional cameras on loan from the owners ensure unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape and its craggy kopjes and winding riverbeds.
From the suites’ industrial luxury to the fully personalized menus, Jawai Leopard Camp utilizes its impeccable service and location to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meals follow the rhythm of the game here, beginning with drinks delivered to the tent, early morning breakfasts in the wild, hefty buffet-style lunches in the Dining Tent, and picnics in the bush, all prepared with each guest in mind. Dinners, however, are the main culinary event at Jawai Leopard Camp. Sourced from the camp’s organic Kitchen Garden, dinners are robust multi-course Indian feasts served around the magical lamp-lined boma fire or in private on a granite kopje under the endless constellations in the unpolluted night sky above. When not dining or on game drives, guests have full access to the camp’s library, drop-edge pool, and hot oil massages at the Suján Spa.
The main attraction of Jawai Leopard Camp is certainly its thriving leopard population, with some three-dozen inhabiting the surrounding bush. The chances of spotting these felines are perhaps the highest in all of India, and Jawai Leopard Camp uses this strategic position to both educate guests on their sacred status and ensure their conservation for future generations. Take part in these efforts by setting out on twice-daily game drives, stopping along the way to allow the resident naturalist to point out the wolves, antelope, crocodiles, sloth bears, and bountiful populations of flamingos and storks that also make their home here. Living among the wildlife as their ancestors have done for centuries are the vibrant red-turbaned Rabari herdsman, as well as the ancient Jain temples of Ranakpur, protected by their langur monkey, peacock, and leopard guardians. Whether searching for the perfect leopard sighting, traveling to the UNESCO beauty of Kumbhalgarh Fort, or simply enhancing the Golden Triangle experience of Rajasthan, Jawai Leopard Camp promises an unforgettable taste of local culture and wildlife.Request Information
