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 20 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. RTR is an excellent place to visit and see the wildlife and the cultural heritage of Rajasthan, 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. ...more

    We booked our Ranthambore tour with Zion Events and Tours Delhi and went on safari With Mr Atul Browne in a six man jeep and he escorted us personally because of his passion of Wildlife. Atul's knowledge and jungle sense about wildlife and photography is impressive and help us achieve some fantastic photographs of the flora and fauna and Tigers in particular when tours of other people were unsuccessful. He clearly has a passion for wildlife, is a genial host and thoroughly recommended. Mike and Tess ...more

    Hi... I was planning for a weekend trip with my friends.And I was planning for Hrishikesh Rafting. And that was my treat to my friends.Everything was confirmed and arranged by ZionTours. And Mr. Atul was the host for event. But for a natural cause that trip was cancelled on the final day.So Atul just called me on that day and said the bad news. So at that time Atul suggested me another thing . That was our great trip to Ranthambore(One of the biggest Tiger reservation in Rajasthan), Jungle safari And Bhangar(The 2nd most haunted place).I was bit confused at that time but the way he managed the whole trip so we could enjoy was really appreciable. On the final day we were supposed to go to Hrishikesh that's north of India but we started for west that's Rajasthan and thanks to Atul and Zion Tours. And One more Thing I should mention that in Ranthambore it depends on luck for tourists to see the Tigers. But Atul managed the jungle safari so we can experience the main attraction of Ranthambore that's the Tiger.And yeah we could capture that in our memory.And Thanks to ZionTours And Atul. And I will plan for the Hrishikesh with Atul in upcoming season. ...more
