A Tiger Safari to see India’s most treasured, handsome, and fiercest felines, the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger and watching them playing, feeding, and roaming freely in the wild, is undoubtedly on every wildlife lover and wildlife photographer’s bucket list. If you are wondering which is the best park in India for Tiger Safaris, unarguably, it is Rajasthan‘s very own Ranthambore National Park.
Here are the Reasons Why Ranthambore is the Best Park in India for Tiger Safaris:
With a total of 86 big cats living in an area of 1,334 square kilometres, Ranthambore National Park has one of the highest tiger densities in the world, making it one of the best places in all of India for tiger safari.
While seeing a tiger in the wild is never guaranteed, Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan offers one of the finest opportunities in the world to witness and photograph these majestic creatures in their natural habitat, thanks to the rich population of tigers in the park.
Though tigers are known to be nocturnal, tigers of Ranthambore National Park are diurnal in nature, which means you can easily spot them even during the daytime, busy hunting, roaming around, or taking care of their young ones.
The best part is that these mighty rulers of Ranthambore are extremely relaxed in the presence of humans and safari vehicles as they are familiar with it, that they walk near the vehicle, posing for photographs, and entertaining you with their chores. No wonder why Ranthambore National Park is a huge hit among wildlife photographers and safari lovers.
The Tiger Safaris in Ranthambore are conducted in open jeeps, providing visitors with a great opportunity to observe and photograph tigers in close quarters.
Last but not least, Ranthambore‘s dramatic setting makes it one of the best parks in India for tiger safaris and wildlife photography. The park is gigantic and leaves you fascinated with its wild ambience.
