Because Camping And Bonfires Is What You Wait For - Like Camping Under The Stars In Ranthambore

Night camps and bonfires are the best thing about this month. December gets balmier with a bonfire. It can be just a bunch of old friends or colleagues warming yourselves up with some drinks and swaying to the tunes of a guitar. Ranthambore National Park has plenty of resorts with luxury tents that are perfect for glamping. Oberoi Vanyavilas is the most opulent. There are 25 tents that have polished hardwood floors, four-poster beds, and freestanding bathtubs.

Other luxury tent accommodations are Ranthambore Bagh, Khem Villas, Sher Bagh, Aman-I- Khas and Jungle View. HolidayIQ Traveller Nalina shares his experience. “The hotel has a fabulous spa, its own wildlife park, two main swimming pools and one private pool for the higher-priced rooms.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Jyoti Sahu shares “Worth visiting; I visited the National Park in October and took the morning safari. The gypsy charges a certain fee but it is worth it. As you enter the park you can see variety of flora and fauna. A bird watcher might also love it during winters when they start migrating to these parts. Everything apart, people visit this place to spot the Royal Bengal tiger and once you do spot it, you will love the place even more. The number of tigers is decent and there is a 90 % chance of spotting.

HolidayIQ Reviewer SOMYA CHANDRA says, “Tiger Tiger ... where art thou !!! About 4 hours from Jaipur is the township of Sawai Madhopur from where you gain access to Ranthambore National Forest. Madhopur is a small town with numerous hotels that suit all budgets. The township is very simplistic and there isn't much to do apart from resting in your hotel or going for the Jungle safari.”

An hour with a Tiger in Ranthambore

We were Lucky to get the Tiger for about one hour. The tiger was moving along the road where our vehicles were stationed. We were lucky to see the Tiger running after a Sambhar. It was majestic.

More chances to see tiger on lakes

Overall jugle safari is good and chances to view tiger is only on the bank of lakes.
Why I have given an average rating because jungle safari should cover more distance. For me jungle has better views than tiger from a significant distance. Chances of seeing a tiger kn the way to safari is negligible
