“Spectacular scenery but lack of tigers.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

You have to be lucky to see a tiger, there are 4 routes through the park and a lucky draw is made to decide your route every morning and evening.
Wrap up well it is freezing at 7am despite the blankets handed out and if you don't see a tiger enjoy the scenery and the bird life, remember binoculars and a hot water bottle!

“Great Experience but didnt see Sher Khan :-)”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The park provides a great safari. We went there in Feb 2013 and it was freezing cold inside the forest although outside it was pleasant. Although we did not see the tiger, mainly due to the untimely rain, we were lucky enough to view the sloth bear which is considered even more rare than the tiger. If you want to see the tiger, you should book back to back 3 safaris atleast.

“It's a great park, well organised safaris and good tiger sightings”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Ranthambore National Park is great. Safaris are well organised and can be booked online. Safari drivers and guides try there best to make sure that visitors have great Tiger sightings.

“We were lucky we saw a tiger!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

As a true blue city girl, I am used to visiting zoos where I could view the world's most incredible species all gathered in one location.. thus, I couldn't quite appreciate Ranthambore National Park where one has to search so hard to only spot one tiger and still call it a lucky encounter! We spotted the tiger on our second safari (it was the fourth or fifth safaris for some!) and managed to capture a few photos of the moving tiger from quite a distance. Our guide then suggested to drive us to another spot for better viewing pleasure but on the way, he made a wrong call to let us go for a quick toilet break. A lady from the group proposed that we do the toilet break after seeing the tiger up-close but he assured us that the tiger would still be there. We were disappointed that the tiger was nowhere to be found when we reached that supposedly "better" viewing spot.

Nonetheless, the overall experience was good since it offered something completely different from the rest of the other Rajasthan cities. The vegetation in the park is mostly of the dry deciduous type and consists of a large variety of flora and birds. We also saw Sambar deers, wild boars, Chinkaras and crocodiles among many other wild animals. It was a pity we didn't spot any sloth bear on our safaris.

If you asked me if I would return again, the answer would most likely be a no but this place is definitely worth visiting at least once!
