This park lies in the shadow of the Aravalli and Vindhya mountain ranges and covers a core area of 275 sq km (106 sq miles).Its razor-sharp ridges, deep boulder-filled gorges, lakes and jungles are the habitat of carnivores such as the caracal, panther, jackal and hyena, numerous species of deer, and a rich variety of resident and migratory birds. The most famous resident, however, is the endangered tiger, and it's a unique experience to catch glimpses of this majestic animal. Like other parks in the region, this was originally the hunting ground of Jaipur's maha-rajas and it only became a Project Tiger Reserve in 1973.
When to visit The park is closed from July to September during the monsoons, and opens from October to June. November to February is the best time. March, April and May are oppressively hot with the desert 'loo' – hot and dry winds that blow during the day – baking everything in its wake. On the up side, they dry summer months allow for some fantastic animal sightings through the bare vegetation.
Activities Tiger safaris. Don't miss the Ranthambhore fort and wake up early to witness the forest at sunrise. You could also see Ganesh Temple, Jogi Mahal and Ranthambhore School of Art.
Accommodation There are a plethora of hotels to choose from to fit every budget, most of them scattered on Ranthambhore Road, the long stretch that leads up to the park. Rates vary on and off-season and it is best to book in advance. Many of the hotels include meals in the hotel package.
