In the plains between Pali and Udaipur, in western Rajasthan, a thriving population of leopard has coexisted with local villagers and Rabari tribesmen since time out of memory. Who knew? Jaisal and Anjali Singh did, actually; last December, the owner founders of Suján Luxury realised a long-held aspiration, to build a sumptuous tented camp that doubled as a research centre.

Jawai Leopard Camp (www.sujanluxury.com/jawaileopard-camp; from about £280) boasts both environmental bona fides – the Singhs are committed conservationists – and unexpected, but great-looking, design. Anjali Singh graduated from Central Saint Martins, and the resolutely contemporary aesthetic she deployed here – all leather-and-steel chairs and large-format photographs – contrasts beautifully with the serene hills. Twice-daily game drives to track the solitary cats are augmented with delectable cuisine, evening performances by Manganiar musicians, and spa therapies utilising botanicals grown in Jawai’s organic garden.
