Below are the details for your kind perusal. Do let me know if you need more photographs or any other details.
Bera: Bera is a small town situated in Rajasthan, with a considerable leopard population. Bera has in recent years developed a reputation for being one of the best places to see and photograph leopards, and it is aptly known as “Leopard Country”. Situated in the Aravalli Hills near the River Jawai, Bera offers great landscapes as well. Besides the “Prince of the Jungle”, Bera also offers sightings of Sloth Bear, Hyena, and Marsh Crocodile.
