A Mughal-style tented camp, Aman-i-Khás is located in a rugged brushwood forest on the edge of Ranthambore National Park in Ranthambore, Northern India. Home to tigers, crocodiles, leopards, jackals, sambar deer and some 300 species of bird, the park is also the setting for Ranthambore Fort, one of India’s oldest, and is near Khandar Fort, perhaps the country’s most dramatic. Camel safaris through villages on the parks outskirts are available, as are bird-watching treks in the lush Banas riverbed.
On the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park, sheltered by the furrowed Aravalli Hills and surrounded by wilderness, overlook a ruggedly beautiful landscape that is home to abundant wildlife.
Raised on concrete plinths, the 10 air-conditioned Tents echo Mughal pavilions with cotton drapes separating sleeping, dressing and bathing sections. Positioned to ensure utmost privacy, the Tents offer soaring living spaces decorated with classic furnishings. The light-filled bathing area features a free-standing bathtub and shower, while the living room has twin writing desks.
Safaris venture into the untouched jungle to discover tigers in the wild. Aman-i-Khás’s expert guides are unmatched in their tracking and intuition about the movements of the tigers, leopards, hyenas, crocodiles and chital deer.
The lamp-lit ambiance of the Dining Tent, with its the large communal round table and smaller intimate tables, harks back to the regal tent cities of Mughal emperors. Meals can be tailored to suit individual tastes, and the daily changing menu reflects seasonal produce sourced from the camp’s organic garden, which the chef delights in touring with curious guests.
