This place is run and operated by a wonderful, charming, nobility of the village. It is a home to Thakur Saheb Devi Singh ji and his family.

They have open their doors for tourists to giving them experience of knowing the Leopards in nature and for helping the local villagers with employment.

It was my second visit this time. The price is reasonable for this experience of staying in a place which has an old age charm to it.

Both the times we have witness Leopards in nature living very close to Humans. The jeeps are driven by professionals under the supervision of Mr. Singh. He also showed us some of the two documentaries done on Leopards in Bera.

I admire the enthusiasm that Mr. Singh have for his big cats and his devotion for these Leopards.

It is no Hotel, it is a home to an important and special family. Get to know them and you would not regret your trip to the village of Bera.

If you are interested in wildlife / photography, then Bera is a good option to spend two nights. I have not had such clear leopard sightings anywhere else.

It is said that the leopards in Bera have almost been domesticated or prepared for human company by providing them with kills / bait in the past. Whatever might be the case, the leopards will come out and sit on the rock, laze around and look at you (from a distance) for a long while - totally unheard of for a cat that is normally very secretive and shy.

Coming to the property, it is a large farmhouse that was converted into a resort many years ago. The rooms are decent sized and generally comfortable. Remember - you are here on a safari and not a luxurious holiday! I was there during non-peak season, so I had the place all to myself. If you are interested in birds, there are many peacocks in site as well as several other species.

Food was cooked at the resort owner's home and brought over. It is generally ok - not as good as I hoped it would be (Rajasthani good can be superb) but not bad too. The breakfast was repeated on the second morning and some of the items during lunch / dinner didn't change from meal to meal. Again, I wasn't there for the food.

If you want to visit Bera, there really isn't any other option - as yet. When I was over there, I heard about some hotelier chap who had bought land near the first reserve and was planning to build a new property. While some competition would be good, I am worried that the increased traffic will make it worse for the leopards who are already surrounded by too many human beings.

You should go here if you love to see the majestic Leopard in the wild! Very unique ecosystem where Leopards and humans literally share a area. Also, the leopards here live on the cattle in the villages nearby.. Thakur Devi Singhji (the owner of Leopard Lair Resort) has done a phenomenal job in conserving the leopards who live in the nearby hills. He compensates the villagers if their cattle is killed by the leopards. Hence, the villagers also do not harm the beautiful animal. However, it looks as if the forst and government authorities have a tussle with Devi Singh Ji because of this. In one instance, the leopard was sighted by few of the cars and we were admiring the beautiful animal, when the vehicle of the local Collector came and the people inside started shouting and literally drove the car on the leopards. we were apalled at this behaviour...
We saw the leopard every time we went in the hills. Devi singh ji exactly knows the behaviour of the animals and you should be pretty sure to see one if you do atleast a couple of safaris.. The late evening safari is the most enjoyable since you cant do it in a national parks (national parks close at 6/6:30PM) whereas Leopard being a nocturnal animal, the movement will start only at about 7PM.
One of the very unique places for people who love wild! I have visited many national parks - Ranthambore, Corbett, Tadoba, Kanha, Gir but have been able to spot leopard only about 2 times in about 40 safaris that I have done and that too for not more than 5 seconds each. Here I saw a 3 leopards at the same time and saw leopards for hours (sitting on rocks or mountains)..
The resort itself is ok. Not too plush or anything but decent. Cleanliness - well Devi singh ji can do a better job certainly, food - non-veg for whatever reasons was too less in quantity - it used to get over within 5 minutes.. I guess it was sheer laziness of his staff and not related to his willingness... but nevertheless, for people who enjoy rajasthani food, its fine..
For people who want to see Leopard in wild - THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO TO!!
