Located on the edge of a plateau in eastern Rajasthan, Ranthambhore is one of the most well-known parks in India and one of the best to see tiger. The deciduous forests and man-made lakes were once the private hunting grounds of the maharajas of Japiur and the ruins of a 10th century fort high up on a sandstone cliff tower over the entire park area.
Apart from being home to tiger, wild boar, deer, antelope and monkey are commonly seen while sightings of jackal, mongoose, sloth bear and leopard can remain more elusive. In the winter thousands of birds migrate here from Europe and Siberia making Ranthambhore an ornithologist’s paradise.
Ranthambhore’s accessibility from Delhi, Agra and Jaipur mean that it has become rather a victim of its own success. Tourism pressure means that the experience here cannot be compared favourably with safaris in Africa but if you are prepared to accept this, Ranthambhore is still an amazing place to visit – particularly if you are lucky and have a sighting of that most majestic of beasts, the tiger.
