At the foot of Ranthambore’s rugged hills and surrounded by over 10 acres of grassland and fields dotted with watering holes, Khem Villas is a charmingly bucolic retreat and so-called ‘jungle camp’.

Tiger conservation runs in the blood of its co-owners, and their eco-friendly approach to discreetly high-end tourism – which helps benefit local communities – is laudable.

Accommodation comprises a mix of two exclusive villas with private sun decks, rustic cottages with open-to-the-sky showers and luxury steel-framed tents with wooden platforms and a distinctly ethnic feel. It’s the sort of place where you might spot jackals, foxes and mongoose skirting the property’s leafy boundaries.

Just 4km from Ranthambore’s main entrance, the property strikes an ideal balance between convenience and rural tranquillity. You’ll also probably learn more about Ranthambore’s tigers, the region’s other wildlife and conservation issues staying here than anywhere else in the region.

Surrounding area

Surrounded by open grassland and without another building in sight, nature walks and camel rides explore its hinterland and lend a more ‘rounded’ experience of tiger country.
