An ideal choice for stays at Ranthambore National Park, offering various accommodation options. Usha and Goverdhan created this little oasis from 20 acres of grassland which they purchased in 1989 and developed by planting indigenous trees and creating small lakes. The estate is now teaming with wildlife and it is not uncommon to see jackals, jungle cats, hyenas, desert fox, and crocodiles, within the grasslands. It has also become a bird watcher's paradise.
