Sujan Sher Bagh is acknowledged as the most charming and authentic place to stay in Ranthambhore, and is nestled on the borders of Ranthambhore National Park, ideally located for heading out on safari. Our guide will take you on board a Jeep in the park to observe the master of the house: the royal Bengal tiger. With seventy big cats found across a surface of 282 km², spotting this majestic creature is not uncommon. With over 40 years experience, Sher Bagh’s guides and trackers stand out. Their incredible knowledge of the park and the behaviour of its star inhabitant, the tiger, together with their passionate enthusiasm, make this experience unparalleled.
This formidable 8th-century fort was strategically located in North India and became especially important during the Mughal period. The Great Mughal emperor, Akbar, wrested control of the fort in 1569. Considered impregnable, this crenellated citadel sits atop a ridge at the very heart of the park. It has Sultanate and Rajput palaces, mosques and temples, including an important temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha, the Elephant God. Thousands of people come here from every corner of the country to seek the blessings of the lord for happiness and prosperity. We will take you on a special guided journey to the fort from the park gates through a beautiful part of the forest in the heart of tiger territory. The views of the reserve from the battlements are breathtaking. Our guide will navigate you through the fort and its rich history and there will be a delicious picnic along the way.
Ranthambhore National Park is the finest habitat in the world to watch tigers in the wild. Mughal ruins, palaces and cenotaphs lie in the embrace of ancient hills and forests. Apart from being home to the tiger, other animals commonly seen are the wild boar, deer, antelope and monkey. The jackal, mongoose, sloth bear and leopard also roam this forest. In winter, thousands of birds migrate from Europe and Siberia making Ranthambhore an ornithologist’s paradise. With over 40 years experience, Sher Bagh’s guides and trackers stand out. Their incredible knowledge of the park and the behaviour of its star inhabitant, the tiger, together with their passionate enthusiasm, make this experience unparalleled.

Dastkar Ranthambhore is a non-profit organization that produces handicrafts created by women from the villages around the Ranthambhore National Park. Founded in 1989, this was an effort to empower and provide income to villagers on the periphery of the tiger reserve. At Sher Bagh we are committed to the idea that craft can be a powerful social, economic, and cultural force that has enormous potential to transform the lives of the poor. We have long been supporting Dastkar. Guests can visit the NGO and get an opportunity to speak with the women and watch them at work. Their wide range of beautifully handmade products, including homeware, clothing, block-printed bags, and other small gifts are perfect presents to take home. Guests can also choose and create their own designs and have things tailored. Dastakar is just short, leisurely walk from the camp.
