If an adventure is what your heart seeks, set out on an expedition to the Sariska National Park and Tiger Reserve. Alwar to Sariska is a drive of 80 km on a road that has never seen better days. An erstwhile hunting reserve of the royal families of Rajasthan, Sariska became a wildlife sanctuary under the sustained efforts of Maharaja Jai Singh in 1958. Since then, hunting has been completely banned in the region, providing a safe haven and natural habitat for endangered species over the 800 sq km area that it is spread across. Once the Project Tiger was launched in 1971, Sariska was then declared as a Tiger Reserve, an attempt towards preserving the fast depleting numbers of tigers in India.

These efforts haven’t been fruitless, as the national park now houses a large number and variety of jungle creatures, including leopards, wild dogs, jungle cats, hyena and jackals, and prey animals like sambars, cheetals, nilgais, chausinghas, wild boars and langurs. Birds are in no way a distant reality, with birds like Peafowl, Grey Partridge, Bush Quail, Sand Grouse, Tree Pie, Golden-backed Woodpecker, Crested Serpent Eagle and the Great Indian Horned Owl being either permanent residents or migratory visitors at the sanctuary. 

But tigers, of course, are the main attraction. The ideal way to explore this abundance of natural beauty is of course in an open jeep safari. Most hotels in the vicinity have facilities for arranging these expeditions. There also RTDC approved tour operators who arrange for a safari at government approved rates. A jeep safari for 5 people costs around INR 1100, with the possibility of one additional person at the charge of INR 200.
