Ranthambhore National Park - Sawai Madhopur

Located in the Sawai Madhopur District of Rajasthan, this park is right in the area where the meeting of the Aravalli Range with the Vindhya Range takes place. The park was just a wildlife sanctuary after which it was made a part of the Project Tiger and later declared a National Park. The main attraction here is of course the tigers who are not at all shy to hunt in the full view of the tourists too. The good part is that the tigers are not kept in boundaries rather they find a large area to keep roaming which makes them feel they are in a real jungle. A true delight for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts, this is one of the prime attractions of the area. The park covers a large area which encompasses a number of historical sites which are mostly in ruins now.
Day 6: After the birds, it will be the turn of tigers to vie for your attention, as you wind your way through the picturesque countryside, chequered with mustard fields and millet farms. Ranthambore National Park is one of the prime examples of Project Tiger’s conservation efforts in Rajasthan & a favourite haunt of wildlife buffs & professional wildlife photographers from around the world. The park is famous for its tigers, one of the most magnificent animals of India. Day 7: We spend a day searching for tigers (optional).

We cycle through stunning countryside dotted with small villages to Ranthambore National Park famous for its tigers and one of the best places in the country to see these majestic predators in the wild. One of the largest National Parks in the country, Ranthambore is an adventure of its own. Apart from sighting the Tiger, which is the best aspect of the park, you can also come close to seeing various other species of flora and fauna. Early in the morning we go for a jeep safari inside the National Park in an attempt to catch a glimpse of the elusive tiger and other wildlife of the park. Riding in open jeeps with a Naturalist, the safari lasts for 3-4 hours. In the afternoon we cycle in the periphery of the Reserve forest.

Ranthambore National Park - Sawai Madhopur

This is the main attraction of the Sawai Madhopur District and a delight for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers. Tigers are the main attraction in this park and it is also a part of the Project Tiger. This is more of a forest covering a large area where tigers are left to roam around at their own will. There are instructions instead for tourists and not the animals at all. Forest safaris are the best thing you can enjoy here and the tigers hunting by themselves in full view looks like a rare view. The Ranthambore Fort is like a watch tower on top of a hill inside the national park anf you can do a lot of photography from here. There are other animals found here in this forest too.
A good guide can elevate a safari into a wondrous journey of discovery. At the Ranthambore National Park, book your tours with Shyamji, Salim or Pankaj. Mention Tripoto, they'll be more than happy to show you that there's even more to the jungle than brilliant tiger spotting.

We left for the Safari and tour of the Ranthambore National Park, post lunch. The weather was pleasant, as it was breezy despite the hot desert sun. A jeep was hired and the grand safari commenced at 2pm. In the wait of seeing the great striped animal, my enthusiasm had built beyond expectations, yet futile for the first kilometer of the ride. But then we began to spot numerous animals, ranging from spotted and Sambar deer, to Nilgai, the Indian Flying Fox to gerbilles and mongoose, reptiles to hyenas, and then the much awaited moment arrived. We finally say a Tiger, and then two more. The beautiful majestic striped animals were basking in the sun as they were seen taking a dip in the nearby ponds.

Ranthambore Forest Resort - Sawai Madhopur

An upscale beautiful resort built in an area of 2 hectares, is about 10kms from the fort and 11kms from the national parl both with the same name. A variety of birds can be seen around the resort.
Our trip started on Thursday evening as we rushed after work to board the Jaipur Superfast Express at 6:50 pm from Mumbai Central. At the station we met Dhimesh Patel - an ex banker turned adventurer - who was our trip leader and the only guy without a seat since he had to offer his seat to some lady who joined the trip last minute. We reached Sawai Madhopur next morning at 10:30 and after a quick breakfast checked in to our rooms at the Ranthambhore Forest Resort.

Also known as the The Oberoi Vanyavilas or the Ranthambhore Forest resort, this is a project of the Oberoi Group of hotels and resorts. The sprawling settings and even more marvelous backdrop of the national park, this is the best possible place tp stay in Sawai Madhopur City. No wonder this is a heritage hotel given the fact that an old palace has been converted to make this resort.
