Travel to Ranthambhore, arguably the best destination in India to sight Tigers.
Ranthambhore Wildlife Tour Packages
Between the Aravalis and the Vindhyas in the Sawai Madhopur District of eastern Rajasthan lies the Ranthambhore National Park as a part of the greater Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve. 1334km2 in area but infinitely larger in appeal, the tiger reserve is bound by two rivers and a sanctuary, and features the terrain types of both hill systems at whose confluence it nestles enticingly.
But Ranthambhore is not just the confluence of two mountain ranges, but also a convergence of the best of man, nature and her creations. Here, history and natural history jell seamlessly to form a perpetual spectacle of endless wonder.
The ancient relics left by the human kingdoms of the past, most notably in the way of arches, gates and chhatris, dot the park almost ubiquitously, now reclaimed by the protected wilderness and embraced wholeheartedly by its rightful inhabitants.
This great setting in which the masterpieces of human industry complement the products of nature’s whimsical flair, gives the reserve its unique, inimitable feel and charm that have propelled it to one of the best places on Earth in which to witness some of the world’s most beautiful animals enjoying uninterrupted lives.

Ranthambhore National Park & Tiger Reserve
The invaluable jungles of Ranthambhore bear the distinction of being India’s largest expanse of dry deciduous Anogeissus pendula forest, Rajasthan’s only habitat in which a viable tiger population currently survives, a critical water catchment area, and an important bio-diversity hub supporting endangered megafauna. And with its rugged hills, steep valleys, rakish ravines and grass-covered plateaus, Ranthambhore makes tiger-watching a joy nonpareil.
The royal Bengal tiger, true to the prevailing ambience, is particularly royal here. A true emperor of all it surveys, the tiger makes its life much more public here than in most other reserves, offering a wealth of precious opportunities to observe and photograph Ranthambhore’s most charismatic tenant and implicitly its greatest guardian in all its glorious individuality.
What you can expect in a Ranthambhore wildlife tour package?
You are in an ancient forest. A peacock crows his raucous call, big sambar stags stomp the ground in red alert, frogs retreat to the security of the water and chirping birds slump into a lull of silence.
A tiger walks out of the bush and strides regally across the shoreline taking your breath away. And you have witnessed the magic of the emperor who doesn’t rule merely the land but also the hearts of its inhabitants. It’s a timely experience of timeless evolutionary perfection.
But the tiger is certainly not Ranthambhore’s singular attraction. For where the apex of the food chain dwells, a whole healthy ecosystem thrives and thus abounds a great variety of watchable wildlife.
Felines hogging a smaller share of the limelight include the leopard, which is sometimes seen straddling the rocky cliffs and steep ridges under the perilous shadow of its larger cousin; the elusive caracal with its long, tufted ears; the fascinating jungle cat and the diminutive rusty-spotted cat.
Notable ungulates apart from the ubiquitous sambar and chital are India’s largest antelope, the nilgai or blue bull and the infinitely graceful and rare chinkara or Indian gazelle, which are the kinds of subjects that make photography such a rewarding vocation.
Sloth bears, jackals and Indian foxes are in attendance and a burst of fortune can lead to explosively exciting encounters and while Indian and palm civets, ruddy mongooses and the striking striped hyena are not easy to see, their pursuit in the interests of a photographic pay-dirt will keep you very keenly interested.
And over 320 species of birds in attendance, including francolins, quails, thicknees, sand grouses and partridges in the ground to minivets, flycatchers, tits, orioles, green pigeons and parakeets in the trees, the avifaunal siege is bounteous enough to keep you riveted as you snake through its magical alleyways in the quest of the king.
