Aman-I-Khas, Ranthambore: Aman-i-Khás is
a wilderness camp for travellers desiring an experience that combines
rural Rajasthan with nature.The camp sits on a gentle slope on the edge
of the Rajasthan desert in the confines of the Ranthambore National
Aman-i-Khás combines aman, the Sanskrit word for
‘peace’, with khás, meaning ‘special’ in Hindi and Urdu.
Surrounded by the starkly beautiful Aravalli Hills, the camp provides
access to the wildlife of Ranthambore National Park which measures a
total of 1,334 square kilometres. Guests of Aman-i-Khás can also explore
the region’s ancient forts and colourful rural villages nearby.
An encampment of just 10 special tents, Aman-i-Khás rests on the edge of
Rajasthan’s Ranthambhore National Park, a sanctuary for wildlife and
cultural beauty. Primal fantasies, in tented splendour, are played out
around the camp’s faithfully rustic outdoor fireplace, surrounded by
cushioned, stone-clad banquettes under the magnificence of nature’s
twinkling ‘eye’. The beguiling calls of the wild, the breath-taking
vistas of the brushwood Aravalli Hills dotted with crumbling ruins and
palatial remnants, and a natural watering hole nearby, completes a
compelling stage from which to experience an unforgettable adventure.
All in sweeping canopied style, reminiscent of the travelling tents
enjoyed during the resplendent Moghul dynasty.
Best time to Visit Rathambore:
The Best Time to Visit Ranthambore National park will be from October

Travel Tips: During the winter
months of December and January, warm clothes will be required,
particularly in the morning and evening. Winter temperatures can range
from a high of 25°C to an overnight low of 2°C. During autumn and spring,
guests should pack light woollens for early morning and evenings with
lighter clothing for the rest of the day. During the hot summer months
it is recommended that guests wear light, yet conservative attire.
Guests should at all times travel with comfortable walking shoes and a
wide brimmed hat. On safari in the park, subdued natural colours such as
khaki, brown and beige are appropriate.
Experience: The camp’s focal point
is the outdoor fireplace, an ideal meeting place before or after
wildlife safaris into the park, or for star-gazing with a nightcap after
dinner. Surrounded by trees, the step-well is a good spot for bird
watching. The region is home to more than 350 unique bird species.
What could be more invigorating than waking up to the crisp morning air
and walking out of your spacious tent to see the starkly beautiful
wilderness of the Ranthambore National Park spread before you. Composed
of deciduous forest, open grasslands and waterholes set in a semi arid
expanse, Ranthambore is a natural habitat for tigers in the core of the
park, but on the outskirts where Aman-i-Khás is located, visitors are
encouraged to join a guided nature walk through the low hills. Guided
nature walks from the camp led by a naturalist are also available, as is
an excursion with a naturalist by SUV to the Banas Riverbed to spot
water fowl and wading birds.
Providing privacy within a thick canopy of trees, the camp’s step-well,
or bawadi, is a series of squared, concentric steps that converge deeper
into the pool. Lined with natural sandstone, the facility blends in with
the camp and the surrounding topography, and provides refreshing
In the evenings, sit on the deck of your tent or join other camp
visitors around the communal fireplace. Listen to the sounds of the
wilderness settling down for the night, as you discuss the day’s
