Ranthambore Travel Guide

Ranthambore National Park is set amidst ruins of a bygone era, lakes, rivers and covers an area of approximately 400 sq. kms. Located in the Sawai Madhopor district of Rajasthan and at the junction of the Aravali and Vindhya mountain ranges, Ranthambore was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1957 and was selected for the Project Tiger programme in 1974 before finally being accredited as a national park in 1981.

Ranthambhore is one national park where tiger sighting is almost guaranteed. The tigers have grown so accustomed to the presence of humans, that they even stalk and kill their prey in full view of the visitors. The views in late evening are simply spectacular as the tigers and other wildlife can be seen in the ruins that are scattered all over the park. Other wildlife includes wild bore, deer, bears, hyenas, birds, wild cats and snakes.

The national park of Ranthambore boasts of many natural hideouts for tigers and other wildlife creatures. Apart from the wildlife the water bodies and waterfalls add to the beauty of the national park.
