Visitors: 59

Situated in the Aravali Range the pristine paradise is much decorated in annals of the royals of Rajasthan. Ranthambhore was the hunting reserve of the Maharajahs of Jaipur who built many monuments during the heyday of their rule in the erstwhile India. They also built magnificent picturesque reservoirs and lake as a means of sustenance. Privileged as a royal hunting reserve they were not subject to denudation as many forests in India have been subjected to.

Ranthambore is now a tiger conservation center notified as a National Park and tiger reserve. It is home of the majestic tiger who in all his glory can be seen here on a safari. Other animals that are seen here are the Nilgai, sloth bear, caracal, wolf, jungle cat, fox and the jackal. The common animals are the spotted deer, Indian gazelle, barking deer, wild boar and the gray langur. The preserve is rich in avian species, and more than two hundred fifty species inhabit the park including the winter migrants.

Though the ancient monuments are in a state of ruins the forest has become robust and supports many big cats which have become subject of tourism and revenue generation. The preserve still bathed in its pristine glory contains a vast tourism infrastructure that comprises mainly of heritage and five star hotels. Not all heritage hotels are from the past many have been built according to the concept in the recent times. Nevertheless they are shining examples of India’s burgeoning tourism industry. The standards followed by the high end heritage hotels are of global acclaim and large numbers of tourists from all over seek accommodation here during the stay for tiger safaris.

In independent India the Maharajahs have evacuated Ranthambore but the glamour of past era still persist thanks due to beautiful properties that have sprung up. The hotels and resorts are recreational venues of class that provide accommodation, fine dining and entertainment.

Albeit the focus is on wildlife interpretation World class luxuries are the hall mark of these properties and they attract holiday seekers throughout the year. For tiger safari a permit is required. The reputed heritage hotels in Ranthambhore assist in booking the permits. Hence make the travel arrangements in advance. The park is closed during the monsoon due to heavy rains.
