This week as the monsoon has begun to arrive in Rajasthan we look up to the skies in hope that the rain gods will shower some heavy blessings across these lands and spread relief for all those who rely on their waters.
Those of you who have been fortunate enough to have visited SUJÁN JAWAI will have had a deep interest in this wilderness coupled with a curiosity for discovering a unique culture. Growing up in Karnataka, little did I know that I would one day be living and working in this unique part of Rajasthan, in wildlife with SUJÁN. An organisation which has taught me the value of putting conservation before anything else and given me a home, very far away from where I belong.

As this season at SUJÁN Sher Bagh is almost over, the team have been looking back and reflecting on all the fantastic sightings & adventures in the Ranthambhore wilderness that we have shared with our guests. This season has been particularly interesting as many of our tiger sightings have been of the offspring of some of Ranthambhore’s most legendary big cats. Ranthambhore is rife with sub-adult cubs and in many aspects has turned into a jungle youth club with ill-disciplined young males, catty cat-fights and that transitional adolescent phases of being grown-up yet still mischievous, daring but then still reverting back to mum when needs be!
It’s 31st August, which means only one thing; the annual Field Team Training Programme has finally made its way back round the SUJÁN calendar. All members of the field department (rangers, drivers, trackers) in all our three camps take part in various tasks that encourage team unity, education and training. This year, JAWAI’s Head of Field, Vedant Thite, hosted and ran the three-day programme.
This week we take you through a series of visuals from the monsoon which is slowly beginning it’s retreat. We bring you some images from both Ranthambhore and Jawai, of the landscapes and it’s denizens in both these wildernesses, while the famous Indian monsoon delivers it’s bounties to their doorsteps.
October is one of the most important month’s in the Sher Bagh calendar. Like every other year, for the last 13 years, Sher Bagh’s 14th Season has opened with us welcoming new guests, creating new experiences and enhancing existing features; transforming the Camp into a buzzing hive of activity.

The Indian Monsoon is an agent of change; of regeneration and rebirth. As the rains pound Ranthambhore’s earth, breathlessly waiting for showers, the foliage and flora undergo a hair-trigger response to the advent. The Dhok trees sprout emerald leaves, the grasses turn green shedding their yellow-brown hues and the denizens of the forest employ themselves in reaping Nature’s bounty, gathered all around Ranthambhore. This week we bring you a selection of images from our archives that capture vistas of the Park, just as the first rains hit Ranthambhore and before it closed for the season… Read More Ranthambhore Rain : The Monsoon at Sher Bagh Ranthambhore.
