Thereafter, you proceed to visit the red sandstone Agra Fort which stands like a crescent on the banks of Yamuna River enclosed by forbidding 20-meter high walls, with a 12-meter moat between them. Three successive Mughal emperors- Akhbar, Jehangir, and Shah Jahan- helped create this massive structure, on the lines of Hindu and Muslim Architecture. [The Taj is closed on Friday].
With an early wake-up call, and a hot beverage, drive out into the forest for the morning game drive. The sun rises over the hills and filters through the dense copses of Sal, creating a serene ambiance.

Apart from flora and fauna, Ranthambore is situated in a belt known to be an epicenter for beautiful Avifauna. With 300 species of birds, Ranthambore is a paradise for avid bird watchers. Some interesting resident species of birds are Large Cormorant, Painted Spurfowl, Sarus Crane, Bronzed Winged Jacana, Sandpiper, Kingfisher, Nighjar, Painted Sandgrouse, Great Horned Owl and many more winter migrants which travel from their nesting grounds of Northern Himalayas to Ranthambore and surrounding areas.
Ranthambore, with an area of 400 sq. Kms. Encompassing rocky hill crests which descend to open valleys between the Aravali and Vindhya ranges, dotted with water pools and fruit trees, gets its name from the thousand-year-old fortress that continues to loom gracefully over the forest. Known well for the diurnal activity of Tigers, Ranthambore is a very special and unusual area where a natural present, meets a historical past. Dotted across the landscape are the crumbling ruins of the past glory that has been witnessed by Ranthambore; palaces and old guard posts encompass the magical and ethereal quality of this great wilderness.

On arrival check-in at the hotel and take the rest of the day at leisure. Painted in the color of Hospitality, the pink city of Rajasthan, Jaipur, is the epitome of Rajput culture. The land of fairy-tale palaces, rugged fortresses perched on barren hills and broad avenues, is extremely photographic and picturesque. The first planned city of its time, Jaipur is time-bound by a formidable wall. Overnight stay at Jaipur.
After a hearty breakfast, drive from Jaipur to Bera. Take a journey of 390 km (07 hours) through the countryside to reach Bera. Located in Rajasthan, it is close to the Jawai Dam. Known for its magnificent sightings of leopards, the experience of sighting one is quite unique and different. It is not a jungle or a forest, instead, you will sight Leopards in the sandy village.
Home to plenty of mammals and Avifauna, Bera is an attraction for wildlife enthusiasts to spot the evasive Leopard, the mighty Blue Bull, Crocodiles, the ever so mischievous Hyena, graceful Pelican, the Greyleg Goose, Robin Accentor, the Demoiselle Crane and the Bar-headed Goose to name a few.

Followed by breakfast, experience the golden mornings of Rajasthan with wildlife sightings. Morning & afternoon Safari; also one can see the village life in Rajasthan. All meals at the lodge.
Not only Leopards! Another magnificent wildlife habitat Bera is famous for is Crocodiles. What actors they are; 15 feet giants, they can fool anyone with their languidly lying illusions. They could be as active as in their hunting process even if they are doing nothing. They won’t move, hence, they sometimes create a camouflage with the rusty muddy ground near the reservoir and we have to focus as we see them from a distance. They sunbathe for the entire day and whenever hungry, they simply dive in at the lake full of fish.
This helped to preserve the forest and its wildlife, although the Maharajas made full use of their rights. At independence, Bandhavgarh remained the private property of the Maharaja until he gave it to the state for the formation of the National Park in 1968. After the park was created poaching and hunting was brought under control and the number of animals rose dramatically. The Tigers in particular prospered and the 1986 extension provided much needed forest to accommodate them. Overnight at the resort.
