Actually, there is movement of 15 to 20 leopards in the forests at Nahargarh of Jaipur. In such a situation, after Jhalana and Amagarh, Leopard Safari is being made by the Forest Department in the forests of Nahargarh as well, which will be about 16 kms.

The number of leopards in Jaipur has been increasing continuously for some time. About 70 leopards are living in Jhalana, Amagarh and Nahargarh safaris. Of these, more than 40 are in Jhalana Leopard Safari. While 15 to 17 leopards are present in the forests of Amagarh and 15 to 20 leopards in Nahargarh. Many Bollywood stars and cricketers have also reached Jhalana in Jaipur to see the leopard.
