Sawai Shivir Ranthambore

The Ranthambore National Park, the former royal hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur has truly beautiful landscapes of dry deciduous forests interspersed between two mountain ranges, Aravalli and Vindhya, and support a sheer variety of flora and fauna. The park also houses the 100-year-old Ranthambore Fort (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). At the Sawai Shivir, ten tastefully designed tents scattered around 16 acres of sunlit landscape and surrounding wilderness leave you breathless. Nestled amidst the tranquil embrace of Ranthambore’s wilderness, Sawai Shivir offers guests TUTC’s signature canvas-top safari experiences. Inside the luxury tents, warm earthy tones await while comfort, serenity, and thoughtful touches radiate throughout the stay. The tent’s private decks overlooking the jungle landscape are a perfect place to savour the silence, wind down, and just sync with nature. Daily safaris into the national park yield sightings of the most spectacular wildlife and birdlife. After a long day in the bush, spa therapies, swimming in the temperature-controlled pool, and culinary delights at the camp’s dining tent take centre stage.
