"Soul enlightenment amidst wilderness"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 28, 2016
The inclination towards animals & forest compelled me finally to pay a visit to this lovely forest & its habitants! Sight of Krishna aka T-19 with her 3 cubs was a beautiful surprise & like a hard earned trophy! The road trip from Jaipur to the park in the scorching heat ended with most memorable trip ever! The moments etched in my memory & unforgettable! Would love to visit again and again!

"No sharper sting than your hopes being shattered"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 31, 2016
Before saying anything I will say just few words:


Well I was just consoling myself.


We started our journey from Delhi on 29th of October by Jan Shatabdi and reached Sawai Madhopur at 6 pm, checked in our pre booked OYO room near Railway station.

I had already booked our morning safari online.

I suggest to pre book the seats in gypsy only, which will enhance your chances of tiger sighting because of 2 reasons:

1. More flexibility of moving anywhere.

2. By avoiding unwanted chattering of aunties in canters.

Though I booked canter because the seats were full in gypsies in Zone 5, where more than 5 tigers roam on an average. (None Sighted).

At the entrance point the guide declared that there is only 40% chances of tiger sighting.

We started the safari, some deer, langur, one big crocodile, an owl, some pigs (not hogs), one kingfisher, 2-3 other birds and a lot of chatting and selfie freak loud ladies were all we encountered.

A little advice, people spend a lot of time & money and are lucky for being in such a place, one should respect the jungle and the wild life, please don't litter, please don't make a noise, experience the jungle, inhale some fresh air, be a part of the jungle.

Well, no tiger sighted, no goose flesh moment experienced, no adventure at all.

Try to avoid canters.

Best season suggested by the locals are May and June.

Book at least 2-3 safaris in advance to enhance your chances.

All The Best.

"Land of Tiger"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 3, 2016
Nature in most raw form at the Ranthambore National park. For a wildlife lover this is most loved and sought after destination. A small town in Rajasthan(India) called Sawai Madhopur is host to over 60+ Tigers.

The Jungle loving called RTR is divided in 10 sub zones (1-5) core area & (6-10) buffer area. Once you enter Ranthambore you are bound to come back over and over again to this magical land as it gives you so much to adore. I am a regular visitor (once a month) as this gives me ample to capture being a wildlife photographer.

From Rocky Zone -1 to the Rajbagh lake & Malik Talao at Zone- 3, From lush Green Zone 5 to a breathtaking landscape at zone 9/10 these zones are land to many World renowned Tigers like The queen herself lovingly called as (Machli T-16) one of the most old living tigress in the world (21 years) in her last days now but she has given so much to world including 10+ documentaries. T-24 aka Ustaad the most loved and most handsome male in RTR who reigned the park now in captivity for life, This land has seen it all and has shown the world Tiger Habitat and mothers love for cubs T-19 aka Krishna's also called the lady of lakes is the most loved mother of over 10 cubs.

I can write a book if i was to write on RTR but all I would say is just go explore and be spellbound by the nature and wildlife.

"A lovely place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 29, 2016
I loved the place. It's a place you should visit again if you are animal lover and love traveling. You should take a proper camera to take pics. The best time to visit is afternoon. We went in the winters, so we enjoyed and the sunset was amazing!!!

"A National Park located close to the fort"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 25, 2016
Inside the fort there is a Ganesh temple with full family, Wife - Riddhi and Siddhi and two sons Subh and Lav. A temple to must visit. Here one can make a mannat for house.

Visit to the park is in 2 shifts - 7am to 10am and 3 to 6pm by sharing 20 seater open canter or 6 seater Gypsy open jeep. For both advance booking is required. During such visits to the park chances of Tiger sighting are good. Tiger sighting is main attraction during such visit.

"Awesome Safari"

  • 7.0/7

Choose a canter or gypsy as per your pocket. Choose gate No. 3 and hope you'll be able to see a Tiger. Please book gate No. 3 online quite in advance as it gets filled in seconds.

"Great wild safari place"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Mar 8, 2016
Not a very good place to visit. It is a Tiger Reserve but it does not have a lot of Tigers there, but it does contain a lot of Sambar, Deer species. This place is of about 500 sq km and divided into 10 zones.

Dust Dust and only dust. No coordination of vehicles and bureaucratic way of handling the park. If you know someone in park management, you can go anywhere.

"A place that makes you filled with happiness"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Feb 8, 2016
A joy full safari with my family enjoyed a lot with my whole family as it was first time travelling to the destination. We just missed to see Tigers but still that was really always remembered trip for our family. The car in which we travelled was awesome and the driver with Guide were so intelligent and knowing all the areas for the possibilities of viewing Tigers. Yaa still we missed to watch the Tiger but yes we heard roaring of them Guide told that two Tigers are talking some personal. Really an awesome view from there never seen before clicked many photos also so much of good memories, we were travelling with three more guys who were studying in college and were a good support. As its a Jungle there wasn't any facilities of food, beverages or even toilets. But still we took something to enjoy with and maintained discipline over there, really wished to go once again.
