"Great palce to visit a tiger reserve"

  • 5.0 / 7
  • Posted Mar 26, 2015
Ranthambhor has one of the largest tiger populations and has 10 routes to tour the jungle. It has hotels suiting every budget and I would advise you to stick to eating meals inside the hotel only. Apart from the sanctuary, the forts and temples are worth seeing. Train connectivity is also good.

"Wonderful place to visit"

  • 6.0 / 7
  • Posted Nov 4, 2014
After we landed the Railway Station was not so good and we thought that whether the trip would be okay. We had booked an accommodation in "Vatika Resort". We reached over there. After occupying room we were quite amused because the location was wonderful. We were having a feeling that we are in a lush green garden. We had gone with two basic purposes. To visit temples and Ranthambore. We really enjoyed and our purpose of visiting was totally served. We would like to visit again and would prefer to stay in the same hotel.

We visited sher bagh in the month of March 2014. We impressed by resort manager on our arrival at the resort from welcome drink to inform us everything about the resort so nicely. We must admit this person is asset of this property...we enjoyed 6 safaris and lucky to take video shooting for a considerable period for two tigers, one leopard. Many crocs, herbivores, splendid birds including a rarest video of owl taking bath in a stream early in the morning.

Stn to N P is dotted with Hotels, budge tones and luxurious too. RTDC has 2 hotels. Hotel Vinayak also has swiss tents accommodation during the season from Oct. to Mar.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: There are no restaurants nearby and you have to depend on the hotel for your food. Usually the food is good, north-indian style and so spicy.For sight seeing you have to take park safari either by Gypsy or Canters, You can visit Ranthambore Fort, and Shri Ganesh temple, about 20 Mins. of up-hill climb.

Activities & things to do: Tourists come here for park safaris and there are not much activities here. Usually hotels have a shop for handicrafts items etc.

"visit to Ranthambore National Park"

  • Posted Nov 25, 2010
Wild life sanctuary .. famous for tiger & other big mammels like deer, samber, crocodile, & various indian birds...

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: only wild life safari.. both veg & non veg foods are available.. having all range of hotels to stay..

Activities & things to do: Wild life safari in morning & afternoon is the main attraction in the park where you can travel in open jeep & canter in side the forest. necessary permission & advance booking of safari is recommended. Your travel agent or Hotel guys can help you on this... The safari in open jeep is always in high demand & must be booked well in advance.
No outside vehicles are allowed inside the park.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: i travelled from Gurgaon on 19th night by car via NH8 to Jaipur, then to dausa via NH11 & from dausa to lalsot via NH11A. The road is pathetic & horrible fromJaipur to lalsot via dausa. Don't ever think of travel on this route... from lalsot to Swai Madhopur to Ranthambore is much better.
while my return journey, I took different route from lalsot to Kothun and to Jaipur via Chaksu on NH12... This part of route is much better & recommended to travel via this road from Jaipur to Swai Madhopur...
Weather is cold during winter & sufficient warm cloths are required during safari...
