“Close to Nature”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We stayed at the Tiger Den resort which is at the gate of the Tiger Reserve and thus enjoyed immensely the early morning open-air Gypsey Safari ride that we took ... We saw a lot of Deers, Cheetals, Neel gai, birds, jackals etc, but sadly couldn't spot the Tiger.... A 100 rupee note ensured that our Guide instructed the Gypsey driver to take us to some more secluded areas away from the other crowd, but to no avail...... But it was a beautiful experience nonetheless...
TIP - They say that its better to visit in March, as smaller water holes dry up and therefore the animals are seen more around the larger open water bodies...

“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We did not see a tiger but we did see a great many animals and birds - a rare huge porcupine, several kinds of antelope, crocodiles, peacocks everywhere, many ducks and waterbirds and beautiful kingfishers. The guide was excellent - but if you go during the cooler season, be sure to wear enough clothes. Riding in an open Land Rover in 4-5C temperatures can be chilly.

“Delapidated condition of Management”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Me being a wildlife enthusiast visited Sariska with high expectations. Obviously, we did not get to see any tigers but what bothered me is the state of the management which is utterly dreadful. No complaint books, authorities absent from their duties, guides sleeping during safari timings.
Rest In peace Sariska.

“Sariska to Bhangarh by road, a treat for the eyes .”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Recently we went to sariska and we decided to visit bhangarh fort as well. the road from sariska to bhangarh is awe inspiring , Aravalli range on either side with canopy of dazzling red flowers ( palash, I have never seen a such a huge jungle of palash flowers spreading miles on either side of the road). It was a treat for the eyes and soul .

“Nice weekend getaway from Delhi NCR”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

the best thing about this place is proximity from Delhi NCR:).It takes 3.5hrs-4 hrs to reach to this place. Like all National Parks, This one has two shifts Morning(6.30) & afternoon(2.30).So from Delhi if you plan a morning shift, its becomes quite hectic to start at 3am(morning), though they allow people till 7.30am for the morning shift. So for morning shift, one has to stay the night before & start next morning. We planned a same day return trip. There are two ways to go to Alwar (chk map), we took NH-8,manesar-dharuhera-bhiwadi-tijara-alwar-sariska,the traffic is heavy from Gurgaon-dharuhera For to & fro trip cos of on going fly-overs construction on NH8,Bhiwadi onwards, the drive is good. We booked online at rajasthanwildlife.in & reported at 2.00pm.when u reach there, you are almost in shock, the place is so badly managed and dirty.The toilets were horrible.There is no place to sit. People at the ticket counter cannot explain properly what charges make up the total.(though for a gypsy, one has to pay approx. Rs 470/- pp, if 6 people are there in the gypsy)Canters were not available. If less no of people are there in the gyspy, cost would increase.For foreigners, the entry fee is more, approx. Rs400/- they have to pay more.The guide & the driver both were knowledgeable. Though it is impractical to expect sighting leopard or tiger in 3 hrs,we sighted sambhar, chital, nilgai, four-horned antelope, rhesus macaque, langur, peacocks. we were reluctant to go in an April afternoon, but to our surprise a sort drizzle of rain helped & weather became pleasant. One can see hundreds of peacocks.we could see 20-30 dancing peacocks through our drive.The forest area is beautiful, rocky at places with water ponds. we could spot a few pug marks & waited in a particular area for some time to spot the wild cat, but couldn't. Nonetheless, the experience was fabulous! We enjoyed.I rate this place at 4, only coz of the drive through the forest. For basic amenities & facilities, I rate it as very poor.At 6pm, we were ready for the return journey!
