Sher Bagh Resort
Ranthambore, Code No- AT-RJ 68


Ranthambhore in the state of Rajasthan is one finest places in the world to see wild tigers. Its name comes from the vast fort, a citadel in the middle of the forest. The fort was in existence in the 8th century and the area around is littered with ruins: lake palaces, ancient step wells, cupolas, guard posts, temples and memorial stones, all bear witness to Ranthambhore's varied and fascinating history. Emperor Akbar fought a battle here for the control of the fort in the 16th century. An 18th century traveller described the fort as being famous throughout India, well protected, completely inacessible, concealed in mountainous regions where the ridges were high and surrounded the entire fort, leaving only the thick forest gorges below as entrances and exists which could be defended. Today this tract of land has another ruler: the tiger haunts the narrow gorges of the fort and has even been known to venture atop it.

By the turn of the century the Ranthambhore forests had become the private hunting reserves of the Maharajas of Jaipur. Hunting was banned in 1971 and a few years later, Project Tiger was launched. Few knew then that Ranthambhore would become the finest tiger habitat in the world

Our family has played an active part in the conservation effort at Ranthambhore since 1974 and continues to do so more than 40 years on. We have witnessed regeneration; a life cycle of the wild in motion, evolving with the changing narrative of this magical land. Sher Bagh is a pioneering, tented camp of 12 luxurious tents nestling on the borders of the world–renowned Ranthambhore National Park. Inspired by the safari encampments of the 1920s, preferred by Princes and Grand Seigneurs of the time, each tent is furnished with 19th century 'Campaign Style' furniture and has all the comforts you could wish for on safari. Sher Bagh was among India’s first luxury tented camps. It promotes sustainable tourism, is ecologically friendly, provides high levels of service and a faultless Ranthambhore experience. An award winning camp and one of the first members of Relais & Châteaux in India, Sher Bagh is globally acknowledged as the most charming and authentic place to stay in Ranthambhore. We invite you to share our passion for the wild and perhaps help preserve this corner of the planet’s living paradise.



This 1920s classic safari camp is reminiscent of the shikar camps and the bandobast of another age. Pitched under a canopy of indigenous trees, all planted by our family over the last three decades, the camp pays tribute to our core values of giving back to nature by remaining small and compact, encompassing the surrounding wilderness. White cotton canvas tents are furnished with beautifully handcrafted campaign furniture in original rosewood and teak. Bespoke Halcyon Days accessories are the other elements that make Sher Bagh ‘a classic’ within the SUJÁN family portfolio.

The mysteries of the ultimate Big Cat weave their way into the design of the camp, making an appearance in print and thread throughout the tents. The founding vision is clear, Sher Bagh is the soul where stories are told and memories recalled around the campfire, and where every guest is welcomed into a home.

Luxury Tents

We invite you to relive life on safari, as it was intended to be experienced. Our 12 hand–stitched canvas tents reflect the style of the 1920s and evoke nostalgic sensibilities of life on safari during the heyday of the Raj. The camp is furnished in Edwardian campaign style furniture, which famously decked the future King of England, Edward VIIIth’s celebrated tour of India’s wild heartlands in 1921. Our bathrooms and showers have been described as ‘a hedonists delight’ while others have called Sher Bagh’s design ‘the most sonorous note in Ranthambhore’s symphony’.

THE ROYAL ‘BURRA SAHIB’ SUITE The finest address in Ranthambhore, our ‘Burra Sahib’ suite, is set in a generous, walled in space within a private clearing protected by grassed walls. The interiors lay spoiling emphasis on comfort and the suite is furnished with impeccably designed pieces of colonial style campaign furniture. Relax under the shade of sleepy neem trees or enjoy the sweeping views of grasslands from your verandah. The heated, private swimming pool offers a perfect place to cool off, or warm up, on either side of your game drives, in peaceful and pristine privacy with unobstructed views of the Reserve. Your private butler will attend to your every want, ensuring every need is taken care of. Quite simply, there is no better place than this to indulge yourself.

THE LUXURY ‘PUKKA SAHIB’ SUITE Underneath the shade of gooseberry and wild guava trees lies the ‘Pukka Sahib’ suite. This patch of luxury comes with its own private walled–in garden, Jacuzzi and open–air tree shower. The feeling here is a rich evocation of Edwardian Raj on safari. As with the ‘Burra Sahib’, the finest campaign style furniture adorns the space. Areas for lounging in between and after game drives, in serene and quiet privacy, are guaranteed and the beds are the most comfortable you will find anywhere. Natural, hand–built mud walls enclose the suite and the Sher Bagh campfire is only a short walk away. A netted verandah gives guests the option of being ‘enclosed’ but able to view the birdlife that the camp is teeming with. Your private butler attends to your every need.

LUXURY TENTS Recently refurbished and enlarged, our 10–tented suites are more spacious than ever before. Larger in size, each air–conditioned tent has its own veranda, appointed with campaign furniture, to relax and enjoy the surrounding wilderness. The en–suite stone bathrooms have hot water showers and natural vetiver products. The deliciously comfortable beds are embellished with fine hand embroidered cushions capturing scenes from the jungle. Bespoke room accessories by Halcyon Days UK, adorn the teak wood writing table. The butler bell at the side of your bed will ensure there is always someone to attend you.

The nourishing homegrown ingredients, handpicked from our organic herb and vegetable garden and the Sher Bagh Farm, add great value to an entirely fresh gastronomical experience. Live cooking, where guests are invited to participate, is an enduring feature of camp life and one of the most relaxing ways to round off a day tracking wildlife in the jungle. We welcome you to share these culinary experiences where, surrounded by wild grasses and under the dome of a starlit sky, one eats off traditional thaali’s while sharing the jungle lore of the day. Meals can be served in more secluded areas of the camp for those looking to spend a private evening under the stars.


The Sher Bagh Jungle Spa lies under the spread of an ancient peepal tree (religiosa indica), ensuring seclusion and privacy amidst a medley of birdsong. We offer a variety of therapies ranging from a full body massage to long practiced reflexology treatments. Whatever your choice, the treatments are a relaxing and healthy interlude. Our therapists have been professionally trained by some of the best–known masters. Popular with guests after a journey on rural roads, the ‘pot hole reviver’ is a huge hit.
