The Forests Department is planning to develop a new tourism attraction for big cat safaris in the Udaipur district's Jaisamand Sanctuary. The Jaisamand Wildlife Sanctuary, which is also a popular tourist site, surrounds the Jaisamand region. The Leopard Safari was previously permitted in the Jaisamand Sanctuary and was scheduled to begin in either December 2022 or February 2023.
The forest department has requested expressions of interest (EOI) for safari vehicles after creating two routes. A total of 32 vehicles will be on safari routes in the morning and evening. A visit to the Jaisamand Wildlife Sanctuary allows for close experiences with a variety of animals in their natural habitats. Visitors to the sanctuary will be able to see not just the leopard but also chinkara, sambar deer, bear.
According to the first plan from the state Forest Department, Project Leopard would be implemented in eight sanctuaries. The safari includes Jaisamand Sanctuary in Udaipur, Bassi Sanctuary in Chittorgarh, Shergarh Sanctuary in Baran, Kumbalgarh Sanctuary, Raoli Todgarh Sanctuary (stretched from Ajmer to Udaipur), Mount Abu Sanctuary, Sundamata Conservation Reserve (Sirohi and Jalore), Jhalana Aamagarh Conservation Reserve in Pali and Khetri Bansyal Conservation Reserve in Jhunjhunu.
