News from Ranthambhore and its surroundings

Proud to be closely associated with so many winners of Jackson Hole Wildlife Film awards

We do not if there is any wildlife lodge in India whose regular guests have won seven awards in the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film festival. This film festival is held every alternate year and is by far the most prestigious wildlife film festival in the world. Any wildlife filmmaker would be on top of the world if their film is screened at the festival, winning either the category award or the best of the festival (called the Grand Teton Award) is a lifetime accomplishment.

Our close friends John Murray, Cepa Giblin and Colin Johnson (of Crossing the Line Films) won the Grand Teton award in 2011 (For their film "Broken Tail" which also got two more awards) and again in 2013 (for their film called "On a river in Ireland" which again won two more awards besides the big one). They have always wanted to do the ultimate Ranthambhore tiger film in co-production with the Rajasthan Forest Department, though I am not sure if they will ever get the required permissions to do so.

Oliver Goetzl  and Ivo who were filming here last year had their film "Jungle Book Bear" in the final rounds of this years competition had won the award in the newcomer category for their film "Wolverines - Hyenas of the North" in 2007.

Proud to be associated with such guys. Colin has been our longest staying guest, from the time he started filming Danger in Tiger's Paradise (which won an award in 2003), he has spent over 800 days at The Ranthambhore Bagh. The last film that he did her was "Machali - Queen of Tigers." We stopped calling him a guest many years ago when he became part of our family. We, at The Ranthambhore Bagh, are proud to be associated with such people

After all The Ranthambhore Bagh is for those who are serious about wildlife.
