"Ranthambore National Park" Sawai Madhopur by PeteG

Ranthambore National Park is divided into 5 sections. There is also a limit placed on the number of vehicles allowed in the park at any time. What this means is that when you arrive with your guide at the park gates you will be allocation a section of the park that you are permitted to explore. This in theory is a good idea as it spreads the vehicles out from each other and prevents certain areas of the park being over-visited while others might get ignored.
The main draw for visitors to the park is the chance to see a tiger in its natural environment. However, the chance of seeing one is put by our guide at about 1 in 3 visits. Unfortunately for us, the day we went, we were allocated an area of the park where the tigers didn't visit very often, and that coupled with only a 1 in 3 chance left us not getting see the stunning tigers. This was obviously disappointing but thats the chance you take - and after all it is the wild and not a zoo.
However, the park is still very interesting for both its animals and natural features.
The park makes a great change in environment from the rest of nearby surrounding India which is flatter and dryer. The park is forested and hilly with streams running through it. This environment clearly attracts and keeps the animals and birds living here.
The list of animals and birds to see here is lengthy, but it is not just the big cats that are fascinating!
- Pros:A chance to see the tigers before its too late
- Cons:Not a big chance though
- In a nutshell:An oasis of calm in a busy world
