Ranthambore.. The Abode of the Royal Bengal Tiger. Place where the king rules with all his might and where all animals including humans have to live by his rules. The Ranthambore national park boasts of more than 70 tigers along with other spectrum of animals like leopards, bears, deer, monkeys, barasinghas etc.
Although it is tough to catch a glimpse of the mighty tiger during the safari, the safaris itself are an experience to have. We were lucky to spot a tiger in the first safari itself in Zone 3 but not all are that lucky. However, the vast expanse of the jungle, the high mountains that rise above the forest, the huge lakes that provide water and landscape and the picturesque Ranthambore fort that overlooks the entire area are all a sight to behold and appreciate. A trip to Ranthambore is a must for all nature lovers and travel enthusiasts as it is one place where you learn to appreciate the grandeur of nature.

We went for morning safari. It was really cold; it was really beautiful. We didnt see any tiger but saw some other animals. It was really different experience.

Well I had been visiting RTR since last two decades and recently planned my 7th visit to this ancient tiger land. This time I deliberately booked a half day safari though my naturalist (Mr. Irshaad Ahmed) . The experience was simply outstanding as I was able to capture some breathtaking shots of a tigress named "Riddhi". While I understand that a half day safari is actually a costly affair but still you have nothing to complain, since you have the privilege to enter any zone wherever the sighting happens. It was around 3:45 pm, we sighted Riddhi in zone - 4 . After spending some time she went to zone -3 and finally she entered zone -2. To be honest zone -2 sighting was probably the best. After having 5 dry safaris in Panna and 3 dry safaris in Pilibhit I was trying to change my luck , and best option is to opt for a half day in Ranthambore, and this what I did.

It was my first safari in my life and I saw a sighting. There were many hiccups prior to the safari-like, we did not get the zone we wanted, we were adjusted in a canter and the zone we had to enter (Zone 1) the tigress went wild so we took a detour to Zone 3 but it was an amazing detour, but post all the changes we did enter the jungle, and we had the most amazing trip and an amazing sighting. The tigress Ridhi was so near to the canter that it did not make me feel bad that I did not travel in a jeep. Sourabh from TravelGleam Wild (Sourabh Garg- 9958993316 , 9899954675) has been so helpful and guided us so well. He accommodated our needs for the safari. It is has been a great experience. The pictures might help my words.

We visited Ranthambore for the 1st time and had a very pleasant time.

While we could not see any tigers, the whole experience of morning Safari and the tracking very splendid.

Special mention to Saurabh and his team at Travel Gleam Wild (9958993316 , 9899954675) for the spot on guidance and arrangements.

The overall Safari was good. The only issue was that it started raining and there was nothing to cover yourself with. I feel that the Safari guys should have a kind of covering on top which can be used when it starts raining. The reason is the temperature is 12° in the morning and on top of that the rain comes pouring down suddenly. It's a big health risk. My only request is along with sweaters please carry your windcheater jackets too.

It was our first visit to Ranthambore and we had a splendid safari .. all thanks to Saurabh Garg of Travel Gleam Wild (9958993316,9899954675) who guided us from the start and helped our safari bookings .Communication with his team is very transparent and his team was excellent in every way. We were picked up and dropped from resort to resort which made the entire process very comfortable . We saw a tiger and also the elusive leopard hunting a group of Sambhar . Many thanks to Saurabh for a memorable trip .

Poorly managed and poor service as like many other government run organisations. Its a SCAM from the beginning (booking) till the end (safari).

Scam1: I wasn't able to book safari online because of the terrible interface of their website. So I contacted a travel agent and he said straightforwardly that you can't book a safari through their portal. So I booked a Canter through that travel agent because prices of JEEP are terribly high. (We were just two people)

Scam2: To start the safari on Canter one need not to visit the national park gate, canter itself will come to your hotel and pick you up. Now the twist is you don't know what time the Canter will come. I was given the time of 7am-7.15am. In the morning at 6.45am Canter guy calls me and says out in 5min otherwise I'll leave and he actually left, we missed the safari.

Scam3: next morning i again had a safari, so i got ready by 6.30am and waiting for the canter guy to call. After waiting till 7am i called him and asked where are you, he said he waited for me outside my hotel for 5min but i didn't showed up so he left. (This time he didn't even called me)

Scam4: in the afternoon somehow i manged to hop on the canter. We were given zone 10 on paper but canter took us to zone 9 without any prior notice. Driver of the canter was a beginner and it was his first time in this zone. After 10min in the zone, canter got stuck in the mud. We spent 2hrs stuck in the middle of the jungle and afterwards he took us out of the zone. Pathetic.

Conclusion: Jim corbett is far far better than Ranthambore. While system behind running the show is like typical GOVT EMPLOYEES. Don't expect anything from anyone. You are of your own.

Huge reserve great wildlife but the tiger eluded is. Plenty of Spotted deer, Sambhar deer, Nilgais, birds, peacocks etc.
But the reserve can be better maintained, the bookings are mainly through agents, travel is through registered guides and drivers and final permission is forest officials.
Most of the agents completely misguide and do not give proper information.
They do not pick up from hotels you have to go to Shilpgram the booking area.
The registered guides and drivers are absolutely mediocre and have the most casual and devil may care attitude to tourists.
They are more interested in complaining about how the zone you are visiting has the least chance of tiger siting and how completely inconvenient it is to travel there... especially zone 9 which is the farthest zone.
They claim zone 1 to 5 are best which could be due to their proximity to the registration counter and hence less driving distance.
Have to mention we visited the safari twice zone 7 and 9, and the guides did not even bother to give basic information about the reserve...the guide in zone 7 told us about the area and common animals ....period, the other guide in zone 9 a lady didn't even bother to speak a word about the tiger....the drivers were more out spoken about how we were in the wrong zones, and were mis informed about the time to visit the reserve, the agents we booked with and so on.
They on the other hand just complained, chewed paan masala, even had breakfast as we waited for the so called animal calls, encouraged us to take a bio break in the jungle( though it is forbidden to get down from the gypsy), got down themselves to pluck berries from shrubs and overall did everything like an average driver in a city would do.
Great jungles but absolutely poor service for bookings and guides and drivers.

This is our first safari experience and we are now addicted! We did three safaris - the first one in zone 2 in the morning, the second one in zone 3 in the afternoon and the 3rd in zone 1 in the morning again. We did all the three safaris with Saurabh Garg of TravelGleam Wild (9958993316, 9899954675) and while lots of people will say sighting tigers is a matter of luck, from this experience it is clear to me that while luck plays an important role, so does adequate research, planning and taking advice from someone who has rich experience and Saurabh ticked all these boxes. We sighted tigers in each of our trips, most time at a distance of 1-2 feet and once when we were the only ones around. Saurabh breathes the forest and has an excellent sense and intuition about these magnificent beasts. He is transparent, does his homework and takes his work seriously. Sighting tigers apart which was obviously the highlight, the overall experience of the jungle blew us away with the sights, sounds, smells and wildlife. Highly recommended.
