Set in the Aravalli Hills, a bout three-hour drive from either Udaipur or Jodhpur, this camp is the best choice for those who are looking for place to avoide both the crowds and the massive regulations of India's wildlife reserves. Leopards are regarded as sacred guardians of the ancient temples that dot the landscape; it is estimated that 30-50 live in the Jawai area. There are also Nilgai antelopes, crocodiles, Langur monkeys, wild boar and more than 100 bird species (including flamingos at the Jawai Dam) here. In the tented suites, local stone has been combined with smart stainless steel, leather and dramatic black-and-white wildlife photographs, and there are proper bathrooms with powerful hot showers. The camp's garden supplies fresh organic produce for robust Indian feasts served after cocktails in the evening.
