The Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore

Only a limited number of people are allowed to visit this Ranthambhore national park per day. So you might say that you have a reservation at the hotel, but the tigers own the reserve!

But wait until you take a game drive into the reserve and spot your first tiger in its natural habitat. The size of its paws, the muscular grace, the sheer power of the world’s biggest cat will have you holding your breath and hoping that the noise of your camera shutter doesn’t shatter the moment.

You’ll also find plenty to photograph in the Oberoi Vanyavilas itself. The luxury tents with wooden floors, king-size four posters with embroidered canopies and the superb ‘period’ bathrooms alone are worth shooting to impress your friends at home.
