Khem Villas

Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve

Rajasthan

Owned by Dr. Goverdhan Singh, son of legendary Park Director, Fateh Singh Rathore and his charming wife, Usha, Khem Villas is a very comfortable and family-run stay in 25 acres of restored farmlands. It is now restored to a verdant garden of native trees, grasslands and water bodies and is home to jackals, jungle cats, hyenas, desert fox and even an odd crocodile or two! This vast natural habitat is also a bird watcher’s paradise. Moreover, guests can detox and unwind at the Age Veda Spa, which provides meditative silence and body therapies. The various room types have been crafted using locally sourced materials and positioned to offer you privacy. Fine, and only vegetarian, dining is enjoyed in the bungalow-style building. Apart from the various daily activities, some visionary conservation and health projects have been set up by Goverdhan.
  • Grab your binoculars and make the best of your game drive in the park or a quiet nature and bird walk with the lodge’s expert naturalist. For those seeking history and local culture, visit the fort or walk through the nearby village for some interesting sights. Make sure to try the river safari on the Chambal River and a nature walk through the 80 acres of restored land, which has been turned into a natural jungle over 25 years. Visitors can view herds of black buck, the most magnificent gazelle of the desert landscape, just an hour’s drive from Ranthambhore, and get involved in the lodge’s conservation projects.
