Tiger Viewing in Ranthambore National Park

Tailormade Your Tour

Tyger, tyger burning bright
Tiger, Ranthambore National ParkIn the forests of the night...........-.....reads the poem written centuries ago by the English poet William Blake, proving once again that since time immemorial tigers have intrigued man. These fast, furious and fascinating creatures were once the coveted trophies in the Shikars of the Maharajas and one of the former hunting grounds was Ranthambore. Due to indiscriminate hunting and killing of tigers there came a time that called for their protection, so in 1955 Ranthambore was declared a game sanctuary and in 1972 it became a National Park.

The park is situated in Eastern Rajasthan, where the Aravali Hill ranges and the Vindhyan plateau meet. Six man made lakes are the central focus of the park and many perennial streams criss-cross the entire sanctuary. The rivers Chambal in the South and Banas in the North bound the Ranthambore National Park.

The lush landscape of this sanctuary is in part impregnable forest and part open bush land. Dotted with ancient Banyan Trees, Dhok & Pipal, clusters of mango trees in places and crisscrossed with evergreen belts. The terrain is made up of massive rock formations, steep scarps, perennial lakes and streams and forest suddenly opening up into large areas of Savannah. The forest is the typically dry deciduous type, with Dhok, being the most prominent tree.

Though rich in wildlife the Ranthambore Sanctuary is famous for the Royal Bengal Tiger. The majestic tiger is the largest living member of the cat family has a rather graceful built and gait. Bengal Tiger is also the fastest running animal. Its length can measure up to 10 feet and has a weight ranging from 180 to 260 kgs. When on safari in Ranthambore you can see the tigers prowling in the forest, stalking their prey, drinking on the edge of the lakes and watering holes and basking in the sun on the rocky outcrops of the ruins of the Ranthambore Fort.

Tailormade Your Tour

The national park of Ranthambore boasts of around 36 tigers whose territory extends over the 392 sq Km area of the sanctuary. The park provides the tigers a safe haven from poachers and a free reign over the habitat. These creature of prey are free to hunt and the sanctuary is abundant in wildlife. They feed mostly on the herds of deer, including chital (spotted deer), sambhar (large stag), and nilgai (blue bull) and smaller animals like wild boar in the park.

Other than the tiger the sanctuary also has has a rich diversity of fauna and flora - species list includes 300 trees, 50 aquatic plants, 272 birds, 12 reptiles including the Marsh Crocodile & amphibians and 30 mammals. On the tiger trail you are also bound to see large numbers of Sambar, Chital, Nilgai, Gazzelle, Boars, Mongoose, Indian Hare, Monitor Lizards and a large number of birds.

Tiger Behind leafs, Ranthambore National ParkThe Ranthambore sanctuary derives its name from the Ranthambore Fort which sits on a rocky outcrop in the heart of the park. A 10th century fort, it is possibly the oldest in the province of Rajasthan and definitely worth a dekko. Jogi Mahal or the forest guest house is another attraction as in its compound stands the second-largest Banyan Tree in the country.
