Ranthambore National Park

About Ranthambore National Park
One of the most popular parks with tiger sightings at its best, a photographers’ dream come true, dotted with lakes and ponds around which the wildlife abounds. Welcome to Ranthambore where predators and prey enact their day to day drama. Hailed as one of India's finest wildlife locales, it is located near Sawai Madhopur township about 100 km south east of Ajmer in Rajasthan. It was established as a sanctuary in 1959 and included in the very first phase of Project Tiger in 1972. In 1981 Ranthambore was awarded National Park status. The park derives its name from the fort of Ranthambore which sits on a rocky outcrop in the forest. The fort dates back to the 11th century when it was a vital citadel for the control of central India.

Ranthambore Wildlife Sanctuary is open for visitors between October and June. Summers are not the right season for heading to Ranthambore. However, the summer heat attracts animals to the waterholes, so there’s greater chance of seeing wildlife in May or June.

The best time for a trip remains between December and April, when the weather’s great and there’s plenty of opportunity for some hardcore wildlife-watching. March and April, especially, are the months when tiger-spotting is common.

The park also has panthers in sizeable numbers, though they have been spotted generally at the outskirts of the park perhaps due to the inevitable conflict with the tiger population, which command the ‘superior’ position amidst the predatory cats. For spotting panthers, Kachida Valley is regarded as the ideal place.
