  • We were at the nine safaris in private jeep with a very skilled guide. He became more and more unhappy because we are not as the shadow of a tiger before the fifth trip. These tours are expensive, but it certainly pays to take on trips by jeep rather than the large buses with 20 or more other. A few years ago came new rules in Ranthambhore, the Park is now divided into 10 tours, safaris, and each car is assigned a route by a lottery. Since this course is still India get the expensive hotels and private jeeps more of the good routes, namely 1 to 5. But as opposite stated then nor do many Tigers there. When a guide has got an eye in a tiger so come all the others on the route running incredibly fast on the paths. You must keep the enormous good fat these safaris is certainly not suitable for small children or people with just the slightest wrong with his back. Poor tiger, we saw, sat on a stone and waited probably on that at least 200 people who had come to, would move goods from Bell Safaries. 7 to 10 and again from 14 to 17, so the animals can get much needed peace. Evidently used the many tourist money not to make the tours more tourist-friendly. We saw only a toilet, and it was so disgusting that you prefer the places where all gather to defecate behind a wall-men to one side and women on the second. For fifteen years ago, we saw many Tigers, several on each safari, so I don't really think that there is now so much more Tigers. As it is now, it is not a place to visit, both for one's own sake but particularly not for those poor persecuted animals.

  • I had a fantastic experience at Ranthambore National Park. When I saw it in October 2016, the park seemed very well maintained. The only negative is all the drivers and forest guides are focused on showing you the tiger and completely ignore the other smaller wildlife like birds. Perhaps the demands of the average tourists has made them thus. Safaris have to be booked way in advance and which of the 8 zones you will be allotted is a matter of chance. We took a Gypsy (there is an option to go in an open bus also) for three rounds in the park. It never seemed too crowded with Gypsies and buses. The ancient fort, which is open to all yet deep inside the forest, can be crowded and noisy because of pilgrims and other casual tourists. But it is worth a visit. Those who complain about crowd in National Parks should remember they are also a part of the same crowd.
  • this location is working fine now currently looking for ohmygod amazing place ok this location is very super and very famous with quality is very number one nice place to keep for excellent services very good this is your natural and very nice place currently busy quality be world in very famous oh my God awesome Ranthambore Fort is one of those Rajasthan forts that have the oldest settlement near Sawai Madhopur. It is believed that the construction of Ranthambore fort started around 8th century AD in the reign of Chauhan Rajput King Sapaldaksha. It is a must place to visit in Rajasthan for those who is visiting Ranthambore. One of the major attractions of Ranthambore fort is the Ganesha Temple, lying very close to the main gate of the fort Getting There: The Ranthambore fort is located at Ranthambore, which is around 400 km from Delhi and 180 km from Jaipur. The nearest airport is Jaipur. Moreover, it is well connected by trains from almost all the major stations like Delhi, Mumbai, Nagpur, Bangalore, Jodhpur, and many more very nice place
  • This is a unique experience bumbling around in the large jeep on the look out for tigers, highly recommend a visit especially if you have just been doing city tours it's nice to get out into the jungle and experience some of Indias wildlife.
  • Yeah.. U want to know about this place so listen that it's cool, amazing, wonderful place to visitors and nature lovers. There are so many place to visit and feel about them. Thankxx
  • No Indian tigers spotted but plenty of other wildlife. The drive to and from is an interesting journey through the heart of Rajasthan...unlike what you see in major cities such as Jaipur and Delhi. Worth the time.
