As India celebrates a 30% increase in tiger numbers, enjoy the finest safari experience at The Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore….
With the news revealed by the latest tiger census that India now has a third more tigers than it did four years ago, comes all the more reason to stay at The Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore. Situated just ten minutes’ drive from Ranthambhore National Park, the hotel offers guests the opportunity to see Royal Bengal Tigers in their natural habitat.
India is home to around 70% (or 2,226) of the world’s tigers; approximately 60 of which inhabit Ranthambhore National Park in Rajasthan, making it the most densely populated tiger reserve in India. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Park’s conservationists who closely monitor the behaviour patterns of their resident tigers, visitors to Ranthambhore stand a very good chance of witnessing these majestic animals in the wild. The Oberoi Vanyavilas is located right in the Park, making it the perfect spot for a tiger sighting. Accompanied by expert safari guides and botanists, guests will be guaranteed an enchanting and informative experience while exploring the territory of the tiger. You can also even help to bathe the resort’s beloved elephants.
Starting the day with an exciting jungle safari, you can drive along rugged tracks, past fields of long grass and watering holes, experiencing the reserve’s diverse wildlife and the opportunity to see the majestic tiger in its natural environment. After a day of adventure, you can enjoy romantic sunset views and champagne at the top of the observation tower (on that note, romantic dinners can also be arranged under the stars at special locations within the resort).
After a busy day in the jungle, guests can retire to their cool, triple-canopied luxury tents appointed with four-poster beds and stand-alone baths. With private gardens protected by authentic Rajasthani mud walls and connected by lit pathways, the luxury tents provide the ultimate comfort whilst adhering to the subtleties of their natural surroundings. The tents are embellished with frescoes, ornaments and upholstery that celebrate the existence of the tiger and its continued prominence in the jungles of Rajasthan.
A night in a luxury tent with private garden at The Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore, starts from 44,500 INR (£478 approx), based on two people sharing.
