Sariska tiger reserve

Sariska Tiger Reserve is home to a lot of wild animals including tigers and leopards. We could not spot any of those but saw deers (both Spotted and Samba), peacocks, wild boars, bear, monkeys. Unfortunately the time we visited was a dry season; we saw more of yellow instead of greenery and yet the nature enthrals you. There is a huge parking space by the entrance. There is a small canteen by the office and caters to the basic amenities and snacks.

It's not always about Tiger sighting; but Tiger conservation

My first ever visit to Sariska Tiger Reserve on 04. 10. 15 was entirely different from Ranthambore Tiger Reserve even in terms of flora, fauna & surrounding around. Still the hope was to have that one single sight of first tigress since 2008 when there were none. The first tigress ST2 aka Bhagani is to STR what Machali aka T16 has been to RTR. After all, Bhagani being Machali's daughter (& current reigning queen Krishna's sister) was first tigress to be trans located to STR in 2008-09 for the betterment of species & the reserve.Though, we couldn't see ST2 after chasing all those pug marks & waiting near her **** while she had been gone to bring along her litter all this time. But still, the safari seemed a short one where much more could have been explored if the guide & canter drivers would have been supportive like that of RTR. It was good to know that only 20-30% of the reserve is open for tourists for the sake of tiger population with least human intervention & poaching. After all species is more important than the sightings !! Long Live the race of National Animal!

A long awaited safari

We started early in the Morning from Delhi and after spending some time in Siliserh we reached at booking office by 1 pm.One should book their tickets online to save time and assured seats in Gypsey.You can have lunch and snacks there.After submitting the rest fees we hop in our gypsey and reached Sariska.As the forest area of Sariska is 866 sq km, and the total number of tigers are 16, it is very rare to encounter a tiger, but the feel of the jungle, the wildlife at every corner, the flora and fauna will make you feel a part of the jungle.Sometimes you will feel great, sometimes your heart will pound heavily.A lot of antelopes like Sambhar, Cheetal, spotted deer are present in a large number.We spotted some bird species, deer, monitor lizards, hog, jackal, peacock, crocodile, monkeys and waited for the Tiger for half an hour with 10 more vehicles in a pin drop silence zone, but hard luck I guess.Always try to go in morning safari if the weather is hot, in winters evening safari can be fruitful.Bring a lot of water with you, shades and stoll are must.Never try to be over-smart in the jungle, it is not a zoo, follow the instructions of the guide, maintain silence and sanity.

A place worth visiting for Jungle Safari

Sariska Tiger Reserve, near Alwar in Rajasthan is the place worth visiting. You can reach there easily either from Delhi via Alwar (around 200 km from Delhi and around 40 km from Alwar) or from Jaipur which is around 120 km from Sariska (via Dausa). One should also visit Bhangarh, the most Haunted City Ruines of India enroute Sariska. Bhangarh is around 90 km from Jaipur.Just took the Jeep safari at Sariska and enjoy the wilderness of Sariska for next three hours. It's jaw dropping beautiful and full of Deers, Monkeys, Boars, Peacocks, and if luck smiles on you, you can meet the Royal Bengal Tiger (Total 7 in number). Beside these there are some Leopards also. Jungle itself is so beautiful. Guides are very friendly, so are the Guards.You will definitely return with a lifetime experience.

Relief from chaosful life and in the lap of nature

Sariska is a great place for nature lovers and for adventure seekers. You can see and feel the nature, wild animals very close to you. The valley of Aravali Hills makes it a good serene place to visit. Although, it's very tough to find a Tiger there except you have a very good luck but you can feel the real beauty of nature at Sariska.Also, you can go to Pandupol, an ancient temple where Pandavas had spent few months. The way from Sariska to Pandupol gives you an immense pleasure. You would find many caves and waterfalls.In nut-shell, for one day holiday, Sariska is the top place to visit.

Great ambiance but no Tigers

I had gone to Alwar with a safari in mind consisting of spotting a Tiger at least once. But, all I was able to do was sit in the resort, which between is great, and drink with my friends, So, if you want an experience like Jim Corbett, give this Tiger Reserve a chance. Bonus: You could also go and visit few more places near Alwar while you are at it.

Feel a real jungle !!!

We visited Sariska National Tiger Reserve in the month of December. It was very chilly around that time. We took a jeep safari with one more friend couple who travelled with us. The jungle has lots of animals - mainly deers and other similar herbivores. We could see spotted, sambar deers, small wild cats, but could not spot tiger, although pug marks could be very easily located. The forest reserve has approx a dozen tiger. The forest guide told us that only 10% of tourists get lucky enough to spot a tiger.
