Tiger Tour in Rajasthan

The jungles of Ranthambore are an incredible place to experience a wildlife safari. Covering 392 square kilometers, Ranthambore National Park has over 68 tigers and is one of the best national parks to spot tigers in India. Formerly the hunting preserves of the Maharajas of Jaipur, the sanctuary is dominated by the 10th century Ranthambore Fort and many scenic ruins of pleasure palaces. Instead of maharajas, these ruins are now the preserve of the regal tigers.

A healthy population of apex predators like the tiger indicates the overall health of the entire ecosystem in Ranthambore, and other species abound. Along with tigers visitors often see leopards, striped hyenas, sambar deer, chital barking deer, nilgai, Hanuman langurs, macaques, jackals, sloth bears, black bucks, Indian wild Boar, Indian foxes, and many more mammals. There are also several bird species including the painted sandgrouse, chestnut-bellied sandgrouse larks, pipits and painted spurfowl.

This itinerary starts off with arrival in New Delhi and a day of rest. Then spend a day exploring the city, followed by departure to Jaipur, Rajasthan, by flight the next day. After 2 days in Jaipur exploring the ways and life of royal Rajasthan, we will take a train to Sawai Madhopur, the gateway town to the Ranthambore National Park. We’ll spend 3 full days on safari in the national park followed by departure to Delhi via train. Please read the full itinerary to get all the details.
