JAWAI Leopard Camp has opened for it’s second season. The team has grown and we are all excited to welcome you to our home! The rains appear to have passed us, leaving behind carpets of greenery. The landscape is sensational and with each drive I stare in wonder as to the unsuspecting beauty and diversity of this land. The camp itself is looking stunning. We have done a few minor adjustments to improve the guest experience and to ensure that any stay at JAWAI is one you shall never forget.
Out in the field I have fallen in love, yet again, with the hills. It is these craggy rocky outcrops, that house one of the worlds most sought after cats. The leopard is by and large a very secretive cat, seldom seen in India. At JAWAI, however, we regularly encounter this spotted predator. Sightings so far have been great – not only of the leopards, but of Striped Hyena too.
The most noticeable thing at the moment is the birdlife…it is prolific. With each drive our bird list continues to grow. The local farmers are busy preparing the fields for the sowing of mustard and I am truly excited at the thought of the bright yellow fields that will grace JAWAI in a few months time.
I invite you to browse through just some of the images taken over the last week. Enjoy…
