LEOPARD

Wildlife Photo Trip

7 Days

INCLUDES

The most excited photo tour tracking the Indian leopard

Jhalana is one of India's latest sensational wildlife locations with a thriving leopard population right on the outskirts of Jaipur city in Rajasthan. Recently declared as a leopard conservancy, Jhalana has been in limelight owing to the amazing sightings of leopards across all seasons. A small forested area with a superb ecosystem, Jhalana also has records of other wildlife like a striped hyena, jungle cat, spotted deers - to name a few.

Gaining recent popularity, Bera is a small hamlet in the heart of Rajasthan as a classic destination for leopard sightings. With its classic landscape of the Aravalli Hills speckled with cacti and scrub vegetation, these hillocks have become a great habitat for leopards to thrive and photograph in. While visiting Bera, you will hear wonderful stories of harmony between the villagers and leopards in the area.
