Ranthambore National Park, Ranthambore Overview

Ranthambore National Park Area : 400 sq km approx./ 39,200 hectares.

Established : 1955 as a sanctuary, 1973 as a tiger reserve, 1981 as a national park.

About Ranthambore National Park: Ranthambore National Park is situated in India's north western state of Rajasthan, near the town of Sawai Madhopur, midway between Bharatpur and Kota townships. It is surrounded by the Vindhya and Aravali hill ranges and is very near to the outer fringes of the Thar Desert. The entire area has sprawling tracts of the desert and semi-desert vegetation.

Originally a hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur, Ranthambore was declared a game sanctuary in 1955. In 1980, it became a national park and listed among the reserves protected under Project Tiger (1973). Presently the Kaila Devi Sanctuary, also famous for its tigers, and Mansingh Sanctuary also form part of Ranthambore Reserve Ranthambore National Park sprawls over an estimated area of 400 sq kms.

Steep crags embrace a network of lakes and rivers, and a top one of these hills, is the impressive Ranthambore Fort, built in the 10th century. The terrain fluctuates between impregnable forests and open bushland. The forest is the typically dry deciduous type, with dhok, being the most prominent tree. The entry point to the Ranthambore National Park, goes straight to the foot of the fort and the forest rest house, Jogi Mahal. The latter boasts of the second-largest banyan tree in India. The Padam Talab, the Raj Bagh Talab and the Malik Talab are some of the lakes in the area, that attract the tiger population. They have been spotted at the edges of these lakes, and Jogi Mahal itself.

Old crumbling walls, ruined pavilions, wells, and other ancient structures stand witness to the region's glorious past. The entire forest is peppered with the battlements and spillovers of the Ranthambore Fort - tigers are said to frequent these ruins, too. As a result of stringent efforts in conservation, tigers, the prime assets of the Park, have become more and more active during the day. More than in any other park or sanctuary in India, tigers are easily spotted here in daylight. They can be seen lolling around lazily in the sun, or feverishly hunting down Sambar around the lakes.

    Our ladies group from CSIR, New Delhi chose our yearly trip destination in October 2017 as Ranthambore Tiger Reserve (RTR). It was well suggested by Mr. Atul Browne that RTR is an excellent place to visit and see the wildlife and the cultural heritage of Rajasthan including the Ranthambore Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The trip was well organized with comfortable and secure stay. It was truly an adventurous trip with jungle safari. Overall, the trip was well enjoyed by the group. Thank you once again. ...more

    We took our team of 40 employees to Ranthambore in March 2016. The professionalism with which Mr Atul handled it all, I must say it took us all by surprise. All the arrangements were near perfect and hassle free, everything (hotel rooms, food, bus) was just amazing . We would recommend Zion Tours and would definitely look forward to organizing more such events with them in future. ...more

    I had a great experience with Zion tours with my booking in Rishikesh. Initially there was a issue regarding the camping we got and we refused to stay in that particular camp due to its location and stayed with another camp, But still Mr. Browne (Zion Holidays) compensate every penny of ours and arranging a wonderful location at Shivpuri for rafting. The whole trip was managed very professionally and we enjoyed a lot. We will be using Zion's services in future for our Wildlife tour to Ranthambore Tiger Reserve as they are the specialist in Wildlife too. ...more
