Day 6 Sawai Madhopur - Ranthambore National ParkSawai Madhopur, in Rajasthan is the alighting point for the famous Ranthambore National Park, and India’s efforts to conserve the dwindling tiger population can be seen here. The park is one of the finest tiger reserves in the country and the most likely place to spot one of these majestic animals. After an early morning breakfast we set out for our morning game drive.
Day two - Both of them were so excited about their luck on their first safari in Ranthambore, they booked themselves on two safaris scheduled for the second day - morning and afternoon safari. The safaris mean twenty odd people in a rickety half truck in an adventure ride through the forest roads. This time they wished to hear a roar or watch me make a kill. Limit, I think. Such greed will not get rewarded, I say, and hence I did not make an appearance. They had to make do with my lovely forest full of beautiful birds and animals. I think I should keep something for their next visit. So long!
Once we reach there we were staying in Jaipur Place hotel which was very nice so it was evening and we finished our dinner early as we all were so tired after 8 hours of road trip.Early in the morning we booked a jeep for the safari so we reached to the tiger reserve and we all were so excited that we will see tigers.But after 2-3 hours drive in jungle we couldn’t see any single tiger and the disappointment was genuine and in between I could only capture this peacock, monkey and deers.In my view Ranthambore Is overrated in all the aspects as no tigers in tiger reserve and very few animals in jungle Safari but yes if you are a good photographer the jungle is very beautiful to capture some nice clicks.After safari we ran back to hotel and getting ready for Ranthambore Temple. There were approximately around 160 staircases which was too difficult for me and my kids to cross and reach the mandir.But somehow we managed and had a nice darshan.The place was overcrowded and the gentry of people was also not good all were shouting and yelling I dint understand for what reason.We left asap and I was very least I tere to stay there anymore.All the pictures are taken by me with my cell phone.
With highly rich vegetation and lush green environment there are chances that you spot tiger in vicinity. Nilgai, gray langur, sambar deer can be easily spotted. So make sure you take a good camera with battery backup.
