“save the habitat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

the jungle was... a jungle. what you read in books, watch in documentaries, it's lovely. though, didn't sight his or her majesty, but it was definitely worth it & worth a few more visits
the tragedy is that visitors, despite awareness & warnings by guides, throw things around, but the better part is our guides & drivers pick after them & dispose them in proper bins outside the park

“Ranthambore National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

Tigers were supposed to be rarely seen in October, especially with the monsoon being heavy and plenty of water sitting on high ground. Did we see one, oh yes. Also the sloth bears were less elusive.

“Amazing scenery, poor organisation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

There were lots of things that irritated us about our safari - the canter was late picking us up in the morning, the whole process was then prolonged by form filling (these should be available at the hotel reception), people having to go back for passports (wasn’t made clear you needed them). It was crazy at the park entrance; loads of canters/gypsies in addition to personal vehicles & motorbikes (which I’d thought were prohibhited! And why would you drive a motorbike through a tiger reserve??!) lined up waiting to race each other to get in.

Once in however, the park is beautiful! Amazing natural scenery, we didn’t see a tiger but lots of graceful deer and monkeys and peafowl, aswell as wild boar, a crocodile and lots of birds. The park is truly stunning and for the first hour of our safari very peaceful – despite the noisy family on our canter, in addition to the moise of the canter itself.

Overall, would recommend. Would also advise trying to get a private gypsy to try to lessen the noise factor!

“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!
