It all comes down to that one moment in Ranthambore. You’ve charged your camera, picked up your sunhat and headed out on the safari vehicle, bouncing across dry plains and over thick grasslands. Along the way you think you must have seen every animal under the Indian sun – hyenas, sloth bears, even flamingoes – but today they’re just the sideshow. As your guide scans the ground for pugmarks, you hear it – the alarm calls of the sambar deer or the langur monkey. They mean only one thing: tiger.
And that’s the moment you’ll remember forever. The first glimpse of the majestic Bengal tiger surveying his dominion – the shock of orange and white fur, handsome black stripes, and those beautiful big eyes. You sit spellbound as he suns himself in the lazy daylight, prowling around, aloof and indifferent to his captivated audience.
One of the most beautiful national parks in northern India, and a dedicated tiger reserve since 1973, a tour of Ranthambore is a great option if you’re keen to spot the rare and marvellous beast. Be sure to clear some space on your camera, though, because the stunning sandstone mountain ranges and deep, dark jungle areas make the Ranthambore scenery as diverse and stunning as its wildlife. You’ll be taking plenty of pictures.
There’s no better place to get snap happy than Ranthambore Fort, which – from its perch atop a hill – offers a stunning vista. It’s also a fascinating historical site in itself. The 300 steps might have you sweating, but persevere. It’s worth it.
People might come to Ranthambore for the tigers, but they leave with memories to treasure for a lifetime.
Make sure to pack strong boots and a good hat, because you’re going on safari. There are few places in the world where you can get so close to such beautiful and elusive creatures. Have a read of our blogs below to get more of a flavour of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
