The line, ‘Tiger tiger, burning bright' seems to come to life in the jungles of Ranthambore. Although, the Maharajas and the Colonisers did their best to hunt this majestic beast into oblivion, they themselves faded away but the tiger still roars in the jungles. To experience the legacy of the Indian royalty along with the call of the wild, Ranthambore is perhaps your best bet. When we talk about activities that you would love to explore in this magnificent place, there are some interesting options which are worth trying:

  • Jungle Safari

    Feel the excitement of thejungle rides in open jeeps, the tracing of tigers based on bird calls and pug marks which has a thrill of its own. Get set and head to Ranthambore National Park for the adventure kick this vacation. Apart from the king of the forest, you can also spot Elephants, Leopards, Boars, Deers, Himalayan Palm Civets, Jungle Cats, Fishing Cats, Indian Gray Mongoose, Blacked-naped hare, Porcupines, Langur , Monkey, Sloth Bear and Black Bear here.

    While you are set to explore the National Park, it is recommended to take as much as safaris as you can (6:30 in the morning and 2:30 in the afternoon). You may need some luck to spot a tiger on your ride but there are loads of other wonderful sights which are equally alluring. It is better to book the safaris via the official website the same time you book your hotel or you can also ask the hotel staff to book the safaris for you. The number of entries to the park are restricted by the government, so be sure to book in advance to avoid any unnecessary situation. The office opens very early at 5 am, so you can plan to head here at that time only and make sure you got the bookings. You can either opt for a
    Gypsy (6 seater) or a Canter (16 or 20 seater safari bus) for exploring Ranthambore National Park. You can enjoy a diesel/petrol canter safari at INR 500/530 and a jeep safari at INR 600, but jeeps are more mobile and offers a closer look at the wildlife.

    Timings: 6.30 am and 2.30 pm (Each ride lasts for about 3 hours)
    Entry Fee: Only for video cameras (No charges on photo cameras)

  • Trekking

    Get ready with your sport shoes as Ranthambore promises a nice and interesting trekking experience for its guests. You will be thrilled to explore the scenic surroundings while you make your way to the grand Ranthambore Fort offering a spectacular view of the landscape. The hilltop Khandar Fort, with all the local tales of mystery will delight you and is worth the uphill trek. There is no better way than this to explore this treasure of mother nature.

Come and discover all this and get enriched for your entire life!
