Tigers of Ranthambhore

Situated a few minutes’ drive from Sawai Madhopur, Ranthambhore is an extremely compact tiger reserve covering some 392 km² and is the former hunting ground of the Maharajas of Jaipur. Its three lakes - Padam Talao, Raj Talao and Milak Talao - are ideal spots to see waders and marsh crocodiles. The lake shores are studded with small covered pavilions, ancient summer palaces and crumbling guard posts that bear silent witness to the park’s history. On occasion the new masters of the park, the Royal Bengal Tiger, can be seen walking among the ruins and standing in the pavilions keeping watch over the lakes. As well as the tigers, there is a wealth of birdlife in the reserve, and many species of mammals to observe.

This shorter tour is designed to allow you to spend the maximum time in one park while taking the minimum time out of your schedule. Although sightings can never be guaranteed, we have enjoyed considerable success on this tour. Every client on every specialist tiger tour has seen tigers.

The tour is led by expert local naturalists
