Here, preserving our natural heritage is a way of life. Suppliers and producers are encouraged to get involved in protecting the environment through innovative ways.
Sher Bagh raises awareness among their suppliers about using natural, traditional and organic farming methods and a ‘no plastic’ policy. Important work is carried out in collaboration with governmental wildlife protection agencies and NGOs: the property provides them with resources and manpower for their critical work in conservation. Indigenous plants are nurtured and grown throughout the grounds. The property’s own foundation, “SNS”, supports local development by helping locals develop new skills to boost their employability. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, solar energy and waste fed fuel is used for heating and electricity, and seafood does not figure on the menu; the sea is just too far away.
Jaisal & Anjali Singh have personally designed & created each of the exclusive destination experiences out of sheer passion and an overwhelming commitment to protecting and preserving India’s wildlife, heritage and culture for future generations. The Suján Family has been working with tigers through filming, monitoring, researching and creating awareness about these majestic cats in Ranthambhore for generations. They put Ranthambhore on the map through their pioneering filming of tigers in the wild and in 1988, established The Ranthambhore Foundation, a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), working closely with the development of villages around the park boundaries. Jaisal and Anjali have since continued the family’s legacy of conservation through the creation of Suján by introducing proven sustainable tourism models by opening ethically sound, luxury boutique experiences in unique areas of pristine wilderness, which benefit local communities as well as play a role in preserving indigenous wildlife. Together along with the team they have built around them, Jaisal and Anjali Singh, are hugely passionate about implementing well-regulated eco-tourism practices to protect India’s wildernesses.
For every guest who visits a Suján property a conservation contribution is directly fed into a fund with which Suján provides financial support and resources to their own projects and local conservation partners.
