JAWAI Leopard Camp

The magic of the Indian wilderness goes a step further when you reach The Jawai Leopard Camp.

Sprawled between Udaipur and Jodhpur, Jawai is one of a series of hamlets strung around the Jawai dam in the Aravalli hills of Rajasthan. A place of dramatic beauty, the panoramic vista is dotted with small African Kopje-like hills which surround the water body, Cactus-like scrub, Flame-of-the –forest trees and sparsely populated farmland.

For me, it is the most wonderful of challenges and I have loved sharing my experiences with the many guests that have visited us already. Read More A new beginning »

What the Camera Trap Caught #1

In trying to come to terms with all the action that happens in the area surrounding JAWAI Leopard Camp, we have recently put a few camera traps up in cleverly chosen areas. It’s quite fun to walk around looking for potential hotspots of animal activity. We use game-trails, scrapes, droppings, pugmarks and other tell-tale signs as clues on where the areas are that the animals are using. The cameras have the potential to teach us too about behaviour and movement patterns of various animals. Read More What the Camera Trap Caught #1 »
