“Elusive Tigers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

The national park is expansive. The safari is well organised. Guides give you only basic information. However its disheartening when all the trained guides and safari vehicle drivers behave erratically in the forest when a rumor of tiger spotting is spread, they drive recklessly and all vehicles - more than 30 at a time for tiger spotting!

“Takes your breath away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

Loved the expansive forests with a dozen different landscapes. Sometimes Tiger-grasslands, sometimes dense dark forests, sometimes rocky terrain and sometimes tropical forest-like damp foliage with gurgling streams. 2-3 huge lakes inside and Canters/Jeeps roughing it up most reliably!

You can't miss the crocodiles, lounging on the banks of the lakes and creeping into them when you approach, the colorful birds soaring and singing all over, the various types of Deer- Moose-like Neelgai, Chital, Antelope, spotted deer etc. and the hundreds of monkeys whose Tiger-Alert calls are the most-awaited songs of nature when on a Safari. We saw a lone Male Sloth Bear, a HUGE beast but lazily walking through the forest, looking for termites to eat on the forest floor and up trees and we saw a male Sambar deer with a beard and all - must have been a Grandfather!

And then you see a TIGER, or a TIGRESS. Doesn't matter except that your breath catches for a moment, you gulp a bit and then start clicking furiously. A most majestic beast, walking proudly through the forests, seemingly nonchalant to the crowds but aware of them all the same and sometimes, she may just turn her head and give you that prizewinning look or a shot. We saw a tiger thrice on 2 safaris so its jolly good luck of course and something which brought in repeat value of Ranthambore!

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

Loads to see. Especially deers, we thought it was a deer park at one point. lol.
Got to see a tiger so it was worth it. Even if u dont get to see a tiger the scenery was brilliant.
If you get a good guide it would make things even better.
We toured the park in a bus like vehicle without a roof holds like 20 people.

Dont wear white.
When I returned home my white tshirt was all brown from the sand.
