Just visited Ranthambore National Park last week and stayed at Ranthambore Regency, the weather turned out to be very hot on the first day but later we had some pre monsoon showers as well.

We drove all the way from Delhi to Ranthambore via Alwar and also visited the abhaneri step well, it took about 07 hours as the road condition was okay, alwar roads are good but you need to pay a lot of toll taxes as well.

Checked in at Ranthambore Regency hotel, rooms were very nice so was the food. Next morning we boarded the canter to explore the park, it was hot and spotted few crocodiles along with some storks full of activity, but no tiger sightseeing but saw some fresh pugmarks.

Returned to the hotel for lunch and had some fun in the pool, post lunch went once again to explore the park and to our surprise we saw the T24 lying in a small pond surrounded by few other jeeps and canters. He was looking wonderful and totally relaxed and we managed to got some few good shots, before we had to leave the spot as the canter needs to make way for others, while returning to our surprise we spotted another T19 female tiger at the park entrance near the gate and she walked along the wall of the fort for few seconds .....the moment she went out of the sight, we were blessed with heavy showers and weather turned pleasant within few minutes, we completely enjoyed the afternoon safari.

Next morning we headed for Ranthambore Fort and again the park looked beautiful from the above, we also visited the Ganesha Temple and the area was alive with full of local people visiting the temple to seek the blessings, here one can see the row of small stone houses the people build to wish to have their own home with blessings from God. It was pretty hot and humid but we completely enjoyed their and in the afternoon drove back to Delhi. Must say we were pretty lucky to spot two tigers in one safari .........

just to drive around the park is already a good experience, but I went twice on one day for morning and afternoon game and didn't spot a Tiger at all!
that's the Idea of a Safari, you don't know if you're gonna see anything, and by the end of the second game you feel like they're just driving around without even trying to spot something.
The guides knew what they were doing, but on the second game me and my husband were with this Indian group, and suddenly they were chatting in their language and we had no idea what they were saying but key words lie "tiger" and "water".... disappointing.

we drove from Agra to Ranthambhore , an all day drive along terrible roads with two children 11 and 15 and my 85 year old mother!! No matter how many times I told the children not to be disappointed if they didn't see a tiger, I was praying we would, if only to justify that drive.

Firstly I have to say that we had a very relaxing first night at Khem Villas before the early wake up call the next morning.

We were picked up from hotel promptly by jeep and set off to the park. Our guide was ok pointing out the wildlife but quite honestly we were only really interested in one thing!! A couple of hours into the drive with no sighting our driver suddenly took a diversion off road and there we saw her a tigress with a cub. unfortunately we couldn't stay long just couple of minutes as we were in an unauthorised area. Even so, we very thrilled to see them. After that, sightings got much better, during the pm drive we had an amazing sighting on the road in front of us a large male tiger, we spent 30 mins with him hanging around in the water relaxing whilst posing like a super model for our cameras!

The next am was our last drive and we were not to be disappointed. We had spent 15 minutes with Machali an elderly tigress, again on the road in front of us.

We were very fortunate to have such sightings, ultimately it's luck whether you see one of these beautiful animals but if you do it's something you will never forget!!! Well worth that long drive!

We were in a jeep with a knowledgeable and chatty guide and we got lucky and saw a tiger. He was some distance away but got a few photos, thanks to the guide. There is nothing like the variety of wildlife as an African safari, but somehow this felt more important. The tiger is an endangered species and we could see on these game drives the colossal effort being made by the Indian government on Project Tiger to ensure that the species survives.

The idea of spotting a tiger in the wild, in a national park in India, convinced me to come to the town of Sawai Madopur, booking a (more than the average price) accommodation, and join 2 expensive (also because in a 6 seat jeep) safaris in this NP.
First afternoon safari: few deers spotted, you can see more of them in the Phoenix Park in Dublin), and a hiyena walking around OUTSIDE the perimeter of the national park.
Next morning, a safari with 7 cramped people in a jeep: I tought we were going to spot something more interesting, it was also another route (decided by the park rangers): nothing, only a tiger print in the ground.
Some viewpoint of the park and that's it. The tour guides where totally useless, explaining very little, boring and bored themselves; and they were also waiting for the tip at the end!
Those two days in the park were the most expensive of my holiday in India, and they could have been used to see other interesting sights in Rajastan: for me, it was a total waste of time for the fact of doing a safari where you have only little chances to spot a tiger. In Kenya if you go for a safari, you pay for a service that it's guaranteed.
My real enjoyment was in Sawai Madopur, just outside the park (the point where to start the safaris): watching all the cows and pigs (mothers with the little ones) walking around and crossing the road
