Princess Padmaja is a Taj product after completing her B.Sc honours in Business and Hotel Administration she has devoted her three years in the wilderness of Godwar Belt of the Aravalli Ranger with the Tribal folk, her compassionate nature has made her leave the luxury of Rai-Ka Bagh Palace Jodhpur and live the life of a common farmer.

Composed and tranquil through the day however exciting and stimulating at night; Bagheera’s Camp is the first of its kind in India that offers wild luxury and authenticity with every Roar of real adventure.
Both Rani Durgershnandini (DN) and Princess Rudhrani are also whole-hearted 'foodies' hence our meals were the highlight of Bagheera's hospitality. Maharaj Rajendra Singh Ji will always be called by several names Data Bapji( Meaning Father or Giver) and Rajkumar Sahib Jodhpur ,a Prince he is,his cooking tells me that. Inspired by his father, every dish he cooks is with all his heart for his wife and daughters making us a fan of his Indian, and home-made recipes for both spicy and less spicy pallets. For the ones who are not into food he has secret recipes which are made for Princess Padmaja and I saw my children eat food for the first time. The Bagheera's menu is designed with love by a lover for this wife and by a father for his daughters!
Our aim is to manage Bagheera's Camp in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, providing comfort and authenticity while protecting the natural and the cultural environment with the tribal folk.

Everybody knew Bagheera, and nobody dared to cross his path; for he was as cunning as Tabaqui, as bold as the wild buffalo, and as reckless as the wounded elephant. But he had a voice as soft as wild honey dripping from a tree, and a skin softer than down.
