To spot the national animal in a protected forest least disturbed by humans and poachers

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aniket Sharma says “My first ever visit Sariska Tiger Reserve was entirely different from Ranthambore Tiger Reserve even in terms of flora, fauna & surrounding around. After all, Bhagani being Machali's daughter (& current reigning queen Krishna's sister) was the first tigress to be translocated to STR in 2008-09 for the betterment of species & the reserve. Though, we couldn't see ST2(tiger) after chasing all those pug marks & waiting near her den, while she had 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!”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Raj Beniwal says, “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 ruins of India en route 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). ”

HolidayIQ reviewer Anshumaan says, “At a stone's throw from the metropolitan city of Delhi lies an exquisite wilderness of dry forests, vast grasslands and mythological stories. After the Tigers went extinct from Sariska, a few have been successfully relocated from Ranthambore. Besides, the many species of flora and fauna, a temple (called Pandupol) from the age of the Mahabharata is also situated right in the middle of the jungle.”

Had a wonderful time in the wild!

Visited this place with two more friends (we all are in the age group of 50-56) for watching wildlife, especially big cats, which we had missed in other Tiger Reserve near Nagpur.
It is very important to book online and that too for the earliest trip as big cats (tigers, leopards, lions etc) move out of their then and go to drink water, first thing they do after daybreak! We had not booked it online and had to be contended with on the spot booking - all small vehicles (max 6 people) were already booked and we had to be contended with a large open bus, carrying 21 people.
Please note: there is Pandupole Temple in this reserve and lot of people go there for religious purpose and unfortunately a group of 6 people with 3-4 small kids also joined our group and started quarreling with the guide to take the bus straight to the temple. Rest of 15 persons objected to the same as our purpose was to see wildlife. Ultimately the driver had to return to the main gate to drop them back, which resulted in wasting about 30 minutes.
The trip thereafter was good, we could sight a leopard moving quietly in the woods and the best part was - our guide made us listen to the "Alert Calls" of deers, antelopes and other birds when leopard was crossing their path.
There is a lovely lake in this jungle, which attracts migratory birds and there were many varieties. I was lucky to take good pics of pained storks and other birds. We also saw 2 crocodiles moving in this lake. A large variety of local birds, which included peacocks, doves, maina, bater, teetar etc were also there.
At the end of our trip, we had to come to the rescue of poor guide (Ajay) who was named by those 6 persons for harassment in the main office. The matter was resolved after I wrote a detailed letter to the Forest Officer, explaining the entire chain of event.
Overall, it was an excellent trip despite not sighting the main attraction - Tiger.

Sariska National Tiger reserve

Sariska National park is a less explored Travel destination in Rajastan. We started our journey early morning from Delhi at 6am and on our way visited another neglected tourist spot in Rajastan-SiliSerh lake in Alwar. Though lalkhila was in our list we could not make it due to time restrictions. SiliSerh lake has got so much potentials and can be developed as a good spot due to its scenic beauty and presence of vintage Palace. But infrastructure there is pathetic and is highly neglected.
We had to stand in a queue to collect tickets as their online site was not working last day. As there was no restaurant there, We missed that day lunch. The journey started after 1. 5 hrs of waiting.
The +and- are as follows
A journey like African wild safaris with chance to see so many animals mostly herbivorous.
Though Tigers and leopards were not spotted, a crocodile was seen on the way.
An ecosystem or an animal friendly environment is created scientifically.
The vehicles provided are of sub quality as canters provide uncomfortable drives.
The vehicles are equipped with less safety precautions.
The site is full of dust and safety precautions are a must.
They could have used closed suv vehicles like bolero, scorpio or safari to avoid the exposure of guests to dusts and attack of wild animals.
Ample refreshment outlets and wash rooms are to be provided.
