In Jawai, Where the Hills have Names…

Shepherds & Leopards

Shepherds & Leopards

JAWAI is located in the wilderness of the ancient Aravalli Hills. Within these hills lies a semi-pastoral agrarian settlement with wild leopards and an untouched historic culture. Nature is a part of us and we are at one with nature, we are not separate identities. This is what makes JAWAI special. For centuries humans and animals have shared these hills in harmony. Spirituality and culture have been associated with this harmony. People who live with wildlife, shape the future of conservation in the country.

Leopard on My Doorstep

Tigers are not the only species of cat, which call Sher Bagh and Ranthambhore National Park home. On my second night at Sher Bagh I was awoken by a scuttling sound outside. Not sure what it was, and still in the midst of an unfinished dream, I turned back over and fell asleep. Next morning, whilst on our way for game drive, we did some very simple investigative work in an attempt to recreate the events from the previous night. Read More Leopard on My Doorstep »
