The leaves fall off their dry stems and upon the forest floor, crackling underfoot the hooves of antlered beasts. Everything is brown, or golden or ochre but for the dazzling, ostentatious indigo of the proud peacock which defies the braids of barrenness around. The waterholes are shrinking, the foliage is parched or absent and deep, deep somewhere in the depths of the drying forest, the predators awaken at sundown for a drink of amber coloured waters. Summer, is here.

"Those who have never seen a leopard under favourable conditions in his natural surroundings can have no conception of the grace of movement, and beauty of colouring, of this the most graceful and the most beautiful of all animals in our Indian jungles."
Jim Corbett

The leopard (Panthera pardus) is the 'strongest' of all the big cats, in proportion to it's size and, perhaps, the most resilient among them. Despite widespread loss of habitat and prey depletion, it's knack for adaptibility has held the leopard population in India, in good stead. However, a recent report by the Wildlife Protection Society of India has underlined a genuine cause for concern for the species, reporting a spurt in leopard deaths in the first month of 2018. Coming on the back of alarming statistics from last year, (2017 recorded 431 leopard deaths, of which 159 were poached and 63 were casualties of road and rail accidents), we must do all we can for the preservation of this magnificent species.
Each and every member of the @sujanluxury team is committed to securing a sustainable future for these big cats and for the preservation of the species that thrives under their umbrella. Visit us (link in bio) to learn more about our conservation efforts and stay up to date with news of the big cats, of both #JAWAI and #SherBagh.

The Jhinjini Mahal temple inside the Satpura Tiger Reserve. Once the preserve of deities, this Shiva temple has now merged with the surrounding forests and it's only devotees are Tigers and Leopards, who use its portals for cover. The Satpura Hills form a bridge between the Western Ghats and the Eastern Himalayas, resulting in not just a unique ecosystem but shared cultural imprints as well.

Exploring the idyllic Satpura Tiger Reserve and it's environs this week. The Reserve is part of the nearly 118,500 square kilometre Satpura Maikal landscape, otherwise known as the Central Indian Highlands and is three hours from Bhopal, the state capital of Madhya Pradesh, by road. We have been lucky to see Tiger, Sloth bear and a number of Indian Wild-dogs and Leopards, besides other game, in these spectacular forests.

Mankind is one of those rare species, that has transitioned from prey to predator, in a relatively short period (ecologically) of just over 4 million years. But genetic memory reduces the most evolved of species, it shows us our place when confronted with truly iconic creatures such as a Tiger, in their natural element.

Hugely looking forward to guiding some very special guests next week at what is the finest, most dramatic theatre of the wild in the world, still inhabited by Tigers; #Ranthambhore. 'Mustanda' (T64), glares pointedly into the camera with a look that could burn through a camera lens, #SherBagh.

The sun calls it a day along the pebbled shores of the Ganga at Haridwar, in the Shyampur Range of Rajaji National Park, last evening.

The river Ganga is a lifeline for the millions who live along its sacred edge, from the mountains of Uttarakhand all the way to the Bay of Bengal through the fertile stretches of its floodplain. It is an ecosystem in itself and supports an extraordinary scale of biodiversity over the thousands of miles it runs it's course.
In Uttarakhand today, to attend @outlooktraveller awards on behalf of @sujanluxury.

A Banyan tree (Ficus Benghalensis), in Ranthambhore. A canopy fit for spiritual enlightenment, a ready scratch-post for tigers and leopards alike or a "swing me daddy" tree....take your pick. These sunlight-seeping "mega-floral" species are found throughout Ranthambhore National Park and are a great spot upon which to look for iconic birds such as Fish owls or Serpent eagles.

A usual evening sky at #JAWAI.
Swirling sunsets, a sleepy sky and rasping clouds bringing in eventide at Camp flanked by the azimuth of Mt. Baliraja .
The partridge cease their calling and the still distant rhythm of the night begins to set in. The moon slowly ambles up the #Kumbhalgarh range and the clinking of glasses signals a sharing of stories around the campfire.

A day of pride, nostalgic evocations and many memories on completing ten marvellous years of my life @sujanluxury, today.

A pucca and heartfelt gratitude to all those I have had the privilege of working with in our growing #SUJÁNFamily; through the sweat and the smiles of these last ten years, creating and sharing extraordinary experiences with all our family, friends and guests.

And a toast to @anjsingh and @jaisalsujansingh who make it possible for all those who live the #SUJÁNLife each day, to experience the magic that we do, every day. 📸@jaisalsujansingh (Circa 2007). #workingday #safari #BigCats

One snapshot of a 1700 kilometre journey, by train and automobile, of discovering Rajasthan this week, that has taken us from #SUJÁNRajmahalPalace, Jaipur to the western ends of India's western most state and #TheSerai, Jaisalmer; via #SherBagh, Ranthambhore and #SUJÁNJAWAI.

Travelling across the breadth of #Rajasthan in the monsoon is an exploration of surprises. To do so just before our camps reopen for a new season combines creative energies and inspiration that are hard at work, developing some of that magic awaiting our guests, just a few weeks from now.

Father & Son on India's 70th Independence Day, 15th August 2017. Faisal's second Independence Day means he is still to learn of the enormous sacrifices and contributions made by his ancestors as well as hundreds of thousands of Freedom Fighters, known and unknown who spent a lifetime in struggle to ensure India won her freedom.

With prayers for unity, harmony and progress for our country and all that dwell in her.
