Aman-i-Khás (combining aman, meaning “peace”, in Sanskrit, and khás, meaning “special” in Urdu and Hindi) is an exclusive wilderness camp set in the rugged hills of Rajasthan on the outskirts of Ranthambhore National Park. The luxury tents are set in a quiet rural area that borders one of the finest tiger reserves in the world. The camp operates from October until the end of June – the best period for wildlife spotting. The 2003 season starts in November.
New Delhi, with its broad boulevards and tree-lined avenues, is the gateway to Amanresorts stays in Rajasthan, India. The international airport is located approximately 35km from the city centre. The Aman-i-Khas Experience includes one night in the capital, New Delhi followed by three nights at the camp itself. Amanresorts provides operational assistance to The Manor hotel, set in one-and-a-half acres of landscaped garden in the green Friends Colony suburb. This intimate 12-suite hotel is a comfortable overnight retreat. At The Manor, a complimentary car and driver are available for Aman-i-Khas guests to shop and enjoy the sights of Delhi.
Guests can travel to Aman-i-Khas by train, plane and vehicle, or by helicopter and Amanresorts recommends that from Delhi, guests travel by train. Those staying at The Manor receive a complimentary transfer to and from the airport as well as to the train station the following day for their trip to Ranthambhore. Travel time by train to Sawai Madhopur station, on the outskirts of the park, is approximately three-and-three-quarter hours and drinks and light snacks are provided. Amanresorts has done their best to ensure that the journey runs smoothly and guests travel in a compartment for two to four persons chaperoned by a member of staff from Aman-i-Khas. On arrival in Sawai Madhopur, they are taken on the 15-minute journey to the camp itself in an open, jeep style vehicle arriving in time for dinner.
Alternatively, travel by private helicopter is possible and there are landing pads ten minutes from the camp. Price and details on application.
