The Ranthambore National Park (RNP) is in the languid, railway town of Sawai Modhpur. The wildlife park covers over 1300 sq. km. and the forested lands will remind you of The Jungle Book, with its thick tree cover, steep crags and watering holes where animals come to quench their thirst.
RNP is home to 60 tigers and they’re easily the biggest reason why wildlife lovers and nature enthusiasts land up here. The Project Tiger initiative has allowed the park to provide a natural home for these endangered animals, and it is immensely heart-warming to view these creatures strolling about the Ranthambore jungle. The early morning and evening safaris will take you through wild jungle and it is certainly a bucket list worthy experience. You will be surprised to know that there are over 300 hamlets in and around RNP. The villagers here manage to live without encroaching into animal territory.
Ranthambore National Park also contains an ancient fort, royal pavilions and frequently visited temples. The park is shut from July to September, and the best time to turn up is during the winter months.
