Khem Villas is established on land that Goverdhan purchased in
1989 and converted into a wilderness area planting indigenous
trees and creating open grasslands and small water bodies,
spread over an area of 10 acres it has become a habitat in
itself. It is common to see jackals, jungle cats, hyenas, desert
fox, hares etc. within the camp grasslands. As it is close to
the park one can sometimes see pug-marks of leopards, tiger and
bears that have passed by and sometimes if one is lucky one may
even get to see them near the camp. The different habitats
within the property have created a bird watchers paradise.
Guests view all kinds of birds from the flocks of White Throats
among the grasslands to the Sparrow hawks hovering in the sky,
the Black Winged Kites in the trees and the Moore Hen near the
water hole. The peace and tranquillity offered at camp is unlike
that of any other place in Ranthambhore.
