Located on the outskirts of Jaipur, set in the shadow of Amber fort, Dera Amer is a small camp in a private farm surrounded by the Aravali Hills. The habitat is rocky and semi-arid, with a mix of open scrubland. Small rural hamlets dot the area and comprise a mix of pastoral and farming families. Nature lovers will be enchanted by the birds and smaller animals that share the camp space. And of course, the main attraction is not one, not two but three gentle giants: rescued and rehabilitated elephants.
Six sumptuous safari style luxury tents are dotted around acres of wild scrubland, providing guests with creature comforts in the most peaceful setting. Fitted with bespoke furniture and furnishings, reflective of the Raj, the tents are a perfect harmony of form and function, and created by local artisans, they offer a luxe camping experience. Each tent is fitted with a double size teak wood bed, deep snoozer mattresses, quality linen, large rugs, a desk and chair, charging points, a safe, heating in winters and air coolers in warmer months as well as an outdoor seating area, with the services of a private butler.
Ensuite bathrooms offer round the clock hot and cold water with pressure, heating, Forest Essential toiletries, a hair dryer as well as bath slippers with bath robes.
Dining with Elephants : Elephants love food as much as their human counterparts, and the way to their heart is with a tasty, ripe banana. Come join Laxmi and Rangmala at Dera Amer for an unforgettable lunch, dinner, or high tea.
