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 Oberoi Vanyavilas offers guests the opportunity to see Royal Bengal Tigers in their natural habitat, and revel in their surge in numbers.
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.
Guests can maximise their chances of a tiger sighting by staying at The Oberoi Vanyavilas in Ranthambhore National Park – one of the Original Project Tiger Game reserves. Accompanied by expert safari guides, horticulturists, and botanists, guests will be guaranteed an enchanting and informative experience while exploring the territory of the tiger.
Start the day with an exciting jungle safari. Driving along rugged tracks, past fields of long grass and watering holes, experience the reserve’s diverse wildlife and an opportunity to see the majestic tiger in its natural environment. After a day of adventure, rejuvenate with a signature Oberoi Spa therapy, enjoy romantic sunset views and champagne at the top of the observation tower. Romantic dinners can also be arranged under the stars at special locations within the resort.
Stay at the jungle resort for two or three days and enjoy cooking classes with the chefs; take a guided nature walk around the 20 acre gardens, woods, and mango groves, or help bathe and feed the beloved resident elephants.
After a busy day in the jungle, guests can retire to their cool, triple-canopied Luxury Tents appointed with four-poster beds and standalone baths. With private gardens protected by authentic Rajasthani mud walls and connected by lit pathways to the pool, restaurant and Oberoi Spa, 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.
