Every drive at JAWAI is an exploration into the wilderness of rural India. Every outing, whether it be on foot, or in car, is a journey for the senses. There is just so much at play here and one can not help but find yourself staring out at the landscape, the people, the birds, the animals and the colour. In a landscape with rocks believed to be over 850 million years old is truly astounding to be able to enjoy the beauty with which they provide us today. We are privileged. It is remarkable. Take a minute to scroll through just some of the images from the last few days at JAWAI Leopard Camp… Read More JAWAI: A week in pictures

Leopards are widely regarded as the most elusive of the big cats. At Londolozi, however, they are quite the opposite. Established by the Varty family in 1926, it is among the finest private game reserves in the world. On our first drive we saw four different Leopards, and even a mating pair!
This was only the second time in my life that I have been fortunate enough to witness Leopards mating; the first time being earlier this year in Ranthambhore, better known to be finest place in the world to observe Tigers in the wild.

After a lengthy break back home in South Africa I have returned for another season with SUJAN in India. I so enjoyed my first season helping set up, run and develop JAWAI that I simply had to return for more. Currently I am based in the head offices in Delhi helping out with odds and ends with regards to all the camps, but my heart is set on returning to JAWAI. Read More Why I have returned to JAWAI!

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.

We visited Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve and stayed at the wonderful Sher Bagh for the first time this May. The weather was very hot but glad we suffered through it as we were very fortunate to see a total of six different tigers and an extraordinary sighting on the morning of our last day of safaris.

It played out like something out of a children’s detective novel…
Three days running we would find wine glasses broken at the bar and no one was admitting guilt. The service staff were completely dumbfounded as to what the cause was of the breakages. Read More What the camera trap caught #4
