    Beautiful place to visit
    Well worth visiting. I guess it’s a bit commercialised but the guides do their best to ensure max. Chance of seeing tigers. We were partly lucky on first visit and got a distant view but speaking to others three abortive visits is possible. The park is beautiful and there’s other things to see in abundance. Fingers crossed you are with a group who can keep quiet for a couple of hours.

    Saw magnificent tigers twice
    We had an excellent time. On two out of our 4 safaris we saw tigers. The park is nice with lots of other wildlife. Recommend Jeep Safaris. Our safaris were organized by Rizwan Ahmed ( WhatsApp +91 97853 56527) . He is excellent, responds very fast, professional and booked us on zones with the best probability of seeing tigers ( nature; siting not guaranteed; nevertheless a beautiful reserve with other animals). He also assisted us in answering questions about other aspects of our India trip.

    Ranthambore is an excellent Tiger reserve. The Forest department has made sure that only the requisite number of tourists are allowed into the Park everyday. They can look at improving the conditions of the Public Toilets though

    Wild ranthambhore
    Nestled in the heart of India, Ranthambhore National Park stands as a testament to the raw beauty and incredible diversity of the natural world. My recent visit to this remarkable sanctuary left me in awe of its untamed splendor and its crucial role in wildlife conservation. From the moment I set foot within the park's boundaries, I was transported to a realm where humans are mere spectators, and nature reigns supreme. The towering cliffs, dense forests, and serene lakes create an environment that is nothing short of magical. But what truly sets Ranthambhore apart is its thriving population of Bengal tigers. These majestic predators roam freely within their domain, offering visitors a rare glimpse into their lives. The game drives provided an unparalleled opportunity to observe wildlife in their natural habitat. Accompanied by knowledgeable guides, I embarked on early morning and late afternoon safaris, each revealing a new chapter of the wilderness. The suspenseful tracking of tigers, the melodious calls of birds, and the sight of deer and other animals freely coexisting painted an intricate portrait of the delicate ecosystem. Ranthambhore's commitment to conservation is evident in its diligent efforts to protect not only the tigers but also the myriad of other species that call this place home. The conservation programs, anti-poaching initiatives, and community involvement showcase the park's dedication to preserving biodiversity and ensuring the harmonious existence of both nature and mankind.

    The search makes the sighting even more special.
    Great fun being driven around beautiful rugged countryside at what sometimes feels like rally car speed. Keeping Eyes peeled for any sign of Tigers. The guides vary, but if you get a good one (like Pankaj) he will explain the life of the animals and work hard to find the Tigers. We went on three safaris in two days and saw one Tiger. The fun of the chase and the reward of actually seeing one of the most beautiful animals in its habitat. If you can book a Jeep safari (not a cantor) when you find a tiger the people on the cantors struggled to see past the ones at the front, while in a jeep there is a max of 6 guests so viewing is better.

Beautiful park. Wrap up very warm in the morning. It was freezing! Be patient, tigers are elusive. Lots of monkeys and exotic birds. Lovely scenery.

Be aware that only 20% of the park is open to tourists so good tiger sightings can be very random. Although our accommodation was described as 10 mins from the park it was actually a very uncomfortable 45 mins drive in the dark and cold to the park entrance in the morning. Very little wildlife sighted last week - probably much better to go after the rains. I booked four safaris and had one sighting.

The landscape, a canvas of lush greenery and ancient ruins, sets the stage for a thrilling safari. Ranthambhore is more than just a tiger reserve; it's a haven for nature enthusiasts. The guides and rangers are not just experts; their passion for wildlife adds an extra layer of excitement to the journey.

The best time to visit, in my opinion, is during the dry season (October to April). While the water sources dwindle, it concentrates wildlife around the remaining oases, offering a higher chance of spotting majestic creatures in their natural habitat.

An exclusive tip: Opt for early morning safaris. The dawn light bathes the reserve in a golden hue, and the animals are often more active during the cooler hours. Patience is key; nature unfolds at its own pace.

The reserve's commitment to conservation is commendable. However, it's crucial to remember that wildlife sightings are not guaranteed; they are a gift from nature. Regardless, Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve is a must-visit for anyone seeking a harmonious blend of adventure and serenity.

The park is divided into sectors, so each day you can see different parts of the park--which is nice. The game drives are usually in the early morning and in the afternoon. In winter, it will be to your advantage to bring really warm clothes (ski clothes) because you will be in an open vehicle, and it is REALLY cold, especially in the early mornings! The tigers are definitely there!!
