Highlights: Game drives in open 4 WD to track Tigers and other wildlife, the historic 1000-year-old fort, nearby water bodies for winter migratory birds and excellent photo opportunities in dry open country
Set against the backdrop of the historic 1000-year-old Fort, Ranthambhore’s charm lies in its man-made lakes and ancient reservoirs, which have merged into the natural system as vital sources of water, besides ruins of mosques, tombs, watchtowers and palaces scattered within the park. The scenic water bodies of Padam Talao, Malik Talao and Raj Bagh, with the spectacular fort in the background, are images that get permanently etched onto your mind.
The sparse landscape, well laid out tracks and the uninhibited nature of its Tigers make Ranthambhore one of the finest places to observe Tigers, often seen hunting their prey in broad daylight. The reserve also has a host of other predators such as Leopard, Caracal, Sloth Bear and Jungle Cat. The abundant prey base includes Sambar, Chital, Nilgai, Chinkara and Wild Boar. Marsh Crocodiles abound in the lakes and regularly take down Sambar deer feeding in the lakes during the summer months.
Of the 300 plus species of birds reported at Ranthambhore, the notable ones are Jungle & Rock Bush Quails, Painted Sandgrouse, Painted Spurfowl, Indian Vulture, Brown Fish Owl, the uncommon White bellied Minivet, Sulphur bellied Warbler, Yellow eyed Babbler, White-naped and Yellow-crowned Woodpecker, Sirkeer Malkoha, Indian Scops Owl, Savanna Nightjar, Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher, Indian Thicknee and White-bellied Drongo.
