The Egyptian vulture & the leopard. An amazing exchange captured between a predator of the sky and a predator of the land by our field ranger Varun. We're curious what these two animals said to each other from their territories.. thoughts?

Sightings of leopard at SUJÁN JAWAI are like nowhere else in the world. Guests have a chance to photograph these special cats in an extraordinary landscape alongside rock formations believed to be over 850 million years old. A place of dramatic beauty, the panoramic vista on which the leopards are seen is dotted with small Kopje-like hills, cactus-like scrub, Flame-of-the –forest trees, temples and sparsely populated farmland, all surrounding the JAWAI Dam; the largest water reservoir in Western Rajasthan.

As you traverse the granite hills, mustard fields and the lakes of JAWAI sudden splashes of red adds a dash of colour and vibrancy to the land. The word Rabari is derived from ‘Rehaan’, meaning – a person who shows the path... Read more about this fascinating community over on our blog today. Link in profile. 📷 @vedant_thite

Once timid & never far from mother, Nagini's two cubs gave us & all our guests much joy at SUJÁN JAWAI last season. We can't wait to document their new independent characters as we witness more magical wildlife encounters with them in The Land of the Leopard. 📷 @fenellaignatiev #Monsoon #MonsoonMonths #BridesHoneymoonGuide17 #SUJÁNJAWAI #Conservation #Wildlife #Leopard #BigCats #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #Rajasthan #Nature #Outdoors #Travel @relaischateaux #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard #Nature

Enjoy top-notch hospitality and come face-to-face with an apex predator at SUJÁN JAWAI, Rajasthan @relaischateaux "There are nine very smart, quite hip white tents outfitted with chrome desks, large black-and-white photographs of leopards and monochrome blankets. The colour scheme is lifted with red accents, like the stacked steamer trunks at the end of your bed, echoing the red turbans worn by the local Rabari herdsmen. There’s a swimming pool for cooling off in the afternoon, a dining tent serving delicious curries and even an African-style boma for dinner by lantern-light. At Jawai, I saw six or seven leopards every morning – and without any other vehicles around. But what really made it stand out for me was the incredible landscape. I thought I knew Rajasthan, but it’s unlike anywhere else I’ve seen in India, almost resembling a CS Lewis sketch for his book The Horse and His Boy. There are wide, green fields around Jawai lake – home to crocodiles and flamingos – and then, rising out of the open plains are these granite rocks, as smooth-sided and sculpted as Henry Moore works" Words by @williamdalrymple @ft_howtospendit 📷 @samuelmchurchill #SUJÁNJAWAI #Conservation #Wildlife #Leopard #BigCats #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #Rajasthan #Nature #Outdoors #Travel @relaischateaux #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard #Honeymoon

@Regrann from @sujanluxury - Thinking about your honeymoon in India? SUJÁN JAWAI in the words of @bridesmagazine "isn’t your typical safari. You won’t see the big five here, but you will see leopards – and get a fully immersive cultural experience. You can join in street games with the locals in village tours, hike temple trails, go on cycle trips and even visit a Unesco-protected fort..and the guides are fantastic" 📷 @fenellaignatiev #BridesHoneymoonGuide17 #SUJÁNJAWAI #Conservation #Wildlife #Leopard #BigCats #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #Rajasthan #Nature #Outdoors #Travel @relaischateaux #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard #Honeymoon #Tiffieldtwins2 #regrann

There is nothing archetypal about JAWAI. The mind scans memory to find a resonance with some other place or some other time you may have visited or visualised that is like Jawai, but there really isn’t. Among these gnarled stones, this sprinkling of breathtakingly, beautiful bounties in a small corner of Rajasthan is a landscape that heals and revives. The air is as fresh as the veggies at lunchtime and so crisp, you feel you are inhaling nutrients out of nothingness. And these spaces do whisper reminders – of why we humans, biologically, psychologically, and physically feel better and elevated in spirit at the sight or experience of a beautiful landscape.

As the SUJÁN camps close for the monsoon season, we are already longing to reopen again and to share more magical sunsets like these with our guests at SUJÁN JAWAI @relaischateaux 📷 🌄@marcoriccastudio #SUJÁNJAWAI #Rajasthan #Travel #Conservation #ShareourWorld #Wildlife #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #RelaisChateaux #Safari #Leopard #BigCats #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard @relaischateaux

A look back on some of the wonderful wildlife sightings at SUJÁN JAWAI this season. Captured here in the dry scrub, the leopard gazes straight at our guests. These beautiful big cats are seen as guardians of the sacred hills of #JAWAI & witnessing them in the wild is a true privilege. 📷 @samuelmchurchill #SUJÁNJAWAI #Conservation #Wildlife #Leopard #BigCats #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #Rajasthan #Nature #Outdoors #Travel @relaischateaux #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard

Travelling with SUJÁN through Rajasthan calls for an open heart and a willingness to embrace the real, human, spontaneous interactions that are the very reason to travel in the first place.

@Regrann from @sujanluxury - This season at JAWAI was full of fabulous sightings of our feline friends, especially of Nagini & her family. Watching her cubs find their feet in the wilderness has been a joy to see & has given us some super photographic moments. 📷 @fenellaignatiev #JAWAI #SUJÁNJAWAI #Conservation #Wildlife #Leopard #BigCats #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #Rajasthan #Nature #Outdoors #Travel @relaischateaux #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard #Tiffieldtwins2 #regrann

Nature is a part of us and we are a part of nature. This is what makes JAWAI special. For centuries humans and animals have shared these hills in harmony.‬ In this weeks SUJÁN story our JAWAI ranger Varun @wildernessconcierge explains to us the importance of the Rabari tribe in the JAWAI region and how conserving their dying traditions and culture is of utmost value and priority to us – not only for their own community but for the local ecology and the culture & heritage of our Incredible India. ‪📷 @anjsingh Link to the blog in bio. #SUJÁNJAWAI #Rajasthan #Tribe #Rabari #Culture #Travel #Conservation #ShareourWorld #Wildlife #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #RelaisChateaux @relaischateaux #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard

The SUJÁN 'Temple Trail' excursion at camp #JAWAI is a wonderful journey of exploration. Each of our neighbouring villages has numerous temples and most of the hills in the area have spiritual caves and shrines where not only leopards but as you can see, busy bees have found a home also. There are four species of honey bee in India with the Giant Rock Bee being the largest. They build a massive single open comb that can be up to 3 meters wide. These combs sit exposed to the elements, with layers of bees working on the outside.
These bees produce a large yield of honey with a single colony able to produce up to 30 kg in a single year which is highly sort after by local JAWAI villagers. Each year the local council holds an auction in which individuals bid for who will get the share of the honey pot! 📷 @vedant_thite #SUJÁNJAWAI #Rajasthan #Travel #Conservation #ShareourWorld #Wildlife #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #RelaisChateaux #Safari #Leopard #Bees #Honey #Temple #Culture #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard @relaischateaux

"Out tracking leopards and sunsets at the simply stunning Jawai Leopard Camp in rural Rajasthan. This alien landscape is home to a dozen of the big cats but also a plethora of local culture which for me, was the real lure. Moments like this were just the icing on the cake. Thank you to @sujanluxury for accommodating me in possibly the most incredible landscape I've ever seen." Thank you @ricduncombe for the kind words and beautiful photographs. We look forward to welcoming you back next season. #SUJÁNJAWAI #Rajasthan #Travel #Conservation #ShareourWorld #Wildlife #Wilderness #ConservationTourism #NaturalWorld #India #RelaisChateaux #Safari #Leopard #BigCats #CNTHotlist17 #LandoftheLeopard @relaischateaux
