Ranthambore National Park is the best place to spot wild tigers in Rajasthan. First of all it is one of the finest locations within India to capture the majestic predators in their natural habitat. Deep gorges, grassy slopes, rugged hills, ravines, and large lakes make this park a photographer’s delight. All in all it is a fabulous setting to meet a Bengal tiger!

The tigers can be easily spotted during the day busy in their daily quest of hunting and taking care of their young ones. It is also home to other wildlife such as leopards, striped hyenas, sambar deer, macaques, jackals, jungle cats, caracals, sloth bears, fives triped palm squirrels, Indian porcupines, hedgehogs, mongoose, and more than 300 species of birds. That's why this park is also good for birding. Its huge abundance of flora and fauna makes it a magnificent destination for a fabulous safari. Ranthambore National Park opens from morning until evening, from the 1st October to the 30th June. At other times it closes because of monsoon rains. It is well worth seeing at least once in a lifetime!

The park lays in the Sawai Madhopur district in southeastern Rajasthan, around 130 km from Jaipur and almost 300 km from Agra. It's worth to spend a day or two for a trip to the park.
