Chambal Experience – Jeep Safaris
Chambal today has emerged as a destination for bird watching and exclusive experiential getaway offering a variety of activities and excursions not found anywhere else.
The Chambal Safari arranges jeep safaris through remote hamlets and habitations hidden within the folds of the Chambal and Yamuna ravines, presenting a fascinating journey through a world that is strangely as connected as it appears removed from modern India. The Bhareh Jeep Safari to the confluence of the Chambal and Yamuna Rivers is 90 kms (2 hours) drive. The spectacular drive through a wild, forbidding and undulating landscape cuts across the ravines of both rivers going deep into one of the remotest most untouched corners of the Indian heartland. The confluence is dominated by the ruins of the majestic fortress of Bhareh, blasted by cannon in 1857 by British forces for supporting the rebellion, and an imposing Shiva Temple that is currently undergoing restoration. The temple platform rises 200 feet, providing breathtaking views of the confluence and the surrounding countryside.
The Blackbuck Jeep Safari heads southwest from the Chambal Safari Lodge towards the Chambal Ravines for excellent sightings of Blackbuck deer and numerous dry land birds including the Indian Courser.
