For a limited edition run, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces will offer guests a special print of The Jungle Book. It celebrates the spirit of the tiger in partnership with the Born Free Foundation, underscoring the Taj’s commitment to conservation. Proceeds from the sale of the books will go towards Born Free’s conservation efforts in India, home to 3,890 wild tigers. The book features a contemporary cover design for these bespoke limited edition prints.

Along with the sale of books, the Taj’s London property 51 Buckingham Gate will also offer a special Jungle Book menu at their delightful courtyard restaurant Kona. The rooftop is decorated in the spirit of the Rudyard Kipling classic tome to offer an entirely unique dining experience. Guests will enjoy a sumptuous Indian tasting menu featuring dishes named after many of the book’s many colourful characters:
