Jawai Bandh Rajasthan
Jawai is where the hills throw the moon out and just as soon, absorb its glow onto their gorges; where nomadic Rabari herdsmen are as much a part of the earth's tales as the mysterious felines that grace these hills and vanish at will into their folds; where pastoral fields meet and merge with wild grasslands and the swells of the Jawai Bandh waters lap at the toes of mighty granite forms; where flamingos flock and cranes in their hundreds dance to springtime sounds. . The Jawai area is home to nearly hundreds of leopard, wolf, chinkara, crocodiles and sloth bears. Jawai region is declared as a leopard conservation zone and bio-diverse area by govt. of India.
Jawai is a location where the unique flavor of this land and its offerings, provide for an entirely different experience from the rest of Rajasthan, yet there are abundant legacies around. The area makes for comfortable access to the citadels of Kumbhalgarh Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For those still thirsting for monuments, the sculpted temples at Ranakpur are only an hour’s drive away from Jawai. Two of Rajasthan’s most visited destinations, Udaipur and Jodhpur, are equidistant from Jawai and easily accessible by car. In the midst of this incredible landscape that combines human endeavor and nature's provision, lies Jawai – as distinctive as this land itself.
Jawai is a place that encapsulates the essence of diverse wildlife and the natural beauty of Rajasthan. It is an area of adventure which provides you with the flexibility to observe wildlife from closer. The Jawai leopard region offers a unique range of safaris, activities and village life tours to make your wildlife experience nothing short of incredible.

There is no restriction for viewing wildlife at any time of the year. But during summer, the weather is unbearably hot so the sightings too reduce, as leopards prefer staying hidden in their shelter. During the months of October, November, and February, the weather is quite pleasant and one can see leopards for a long duration without any difficulty. The months of December and January are quite cold but one can not only see the elusive cat but also enjoy migratory birds in the waters of Jawai dam.
Why Travel to Jawai Bera?
Before Jawai & Bera came into prominence, Nagarhole National Park was known for the best of sightings of leopard. But Jawai & Bera has surpassed Nagarhole. In fact, one can spend the entire duration of morning or evening safari observing leopards. It is also a good place to see birds such as flamingoes, sarus cranes, bar-headed geese, ruddy shelduck, and around waters of Jawai Dam which itself is surrounded by picturesque hills. Crocodiles are also seen basking on the boulders.
