Bera Safari Lodge, Jawai Holidays

Situated 134 km from Udaipur and 164 km from Jodhpur, Bera is an adventurer’s retreat snuggled in Aravalli ranges that offers a tranquil and beautiful backdrop to stay in this one of the country’s most popular leopard getaway destinations. Leopards are elusive, shy and well camouflaged & know human habits well enough to remain like a ghost in the darkness.

Bera Safari Lodge is created with passion on 10 acres of land near the Liloda Hill on the outskirts of the Kothar village 6km from Bera Town. The small but boutique property offers Five charming, spacious, and elegantly decorated cottages with private sit-outs. The location of the property is such that often leopards are seen on the Liloda hill from cottage windows. These cottages have been designed with big windows with plenty of natural light so that our guests can enjoy the flora and fauna of Rajasthan without compromising on space and luxury. The view from the hill within the lodge premises is awesome, 360 degrees to observe nature at its pristine glory. About 30 bird species easily to be observed at the lodge, a hundred more at Jawai Dam, 10 minutes drive north

To find them, you need one of the best leopard trackers in the region: Shatrunjay Pratap - A passionate photographer, leopard-lover & ardent conservationist. Not only does he know the leopards in the area well, he is also one of the reasons why these leopards still have a home in Bera. A few years ago, this rocky outcropping made of valuable granite that provided a home & refuge to a healthy leopard population was granted a mining lease. That would have been the end of the leopard’s last refuge. 

Shatrunjay and his team swung into action after 2 years of running around from pillar to post managed to convince the Rajasthan Government to stop the mining. Now Shatrunjay has dedicated his life along with his family to live with these leopards & have made a home among the boulders of Bera And Jawai in the heart of leopard country.

During the past few years Shatrunjay has spent time learning about the leopards, their movement patterns and habits. He knows many individuals and tracks them on a daily basis. He has spends days in the field and is a treasure trove of information on individual animals and their life stories.
