Followers of this series will be aware that recently, we explored the Deccan Plateau region, and discovered the wildlife living amongst humans in an unprotected area. This time we drove to Bera-Jawai, the Land of Leopards in Western Rajasthan.
Bera, which is famed for viewing leopards residing in an unprotected area, is situated amongst the rocky hills that are part of the Aravalli Range, which consists of the oldest mountains in India. In recent years, Bera has been acknowledged as possibly one of the easiest places in the world to spot Mr. Spots. So I was all excited about tracking and sighting the Leopard in his Lair. Joining me on this Journey of Discovery was Jayanth Sharma, a highly committed and renowned wildlife photographer. We drove down in the comfortable and fun to drive Land Rover Discovery Sport, through whose windscreen I have lately been viewing a lot of beautiful places and wildlife.
