Located at the foothills of Aravalli and Vindhya hill ranges, this park houses varied animal genres, ancient structures and a huge fort. Over the years, it has fetched thousands of tourists, especially photographers to capture glimpse of the tigers.



To enjoy a complete sightseeing of this wildlife reserve, you need to book a safari 90 days prior to arrival. Tourists can choose between jeep and canters for a safari ride. A Canter is an open-topped elevated vehicle that seats around 20 people while a Jeep (Gypsy) accommodates only 6 people along with a local guide. The time slots of safari rides are in morning and evening that runs across the 10 zones of this park. However, Zones 1 to 6 are the most-visited ones. At a time, not more than four vehicles are allowed on a particular route. If you’re lucky enough, you can actually spot the Royal Bengal Tiger. Besides tigers, you will also find Sambhar Deer, Leopards, Indian Gazelle, Crocodiles, Blue Bull (Nilgai), Wild Boars, Jackals and many more species around you.

The Ranthambore Fort inside this park should not be missed! It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the 10th century that depicts the grandeur of the Rajput era. It is located atop a hill and is dotted with temples, tanks, giant gates, huge walls and a mosque (symbolic of the secularity of the Rajput Kings). One of the major attractions of this fort is the Ganesha Temple.
