In terms of tiger-spotting, the best time to visit Ranthambore or any other wildlife reserve, for that matter, is the period between April to June. In these months, the scattered small watering holes get dried up and all the animals move to the major sources of water like rivers, ponds, and lakes.
Because of this phenomenon, the spotting of animals gets easier in the scorching months of summer. However, this does not mean you will get disappointed in the months. Winters are especially known for making your safari experience while giving fair chances of spotting and Ranthambore national park tour package can make it easier.
Ranthambore- The Go-To Destination For Every Nature Lover
This is a national park known for a thriving population of tigers and various other animals. With an area of 1,334 km2, this national park enthrals you in the best possible manner. It also gives you a chance to see a fort right inside the jungle.
There are two rivers flowing in this national park, one is Banas and another one is Chambal on north and south respectively. If you look at its history, it was established in 1955 as Sawai Madhopur Game Sanctuary. The reserve also expands itself and continues to include other neighbouring wildlife reserves.
It also harbours open grassy meadows and deciduous forests. If you talk about 539 species of flowering plants. Inside the forest, you can also visit a temple devoted to Ganesh, Shiva, and Ramlalaji. Another gem is the Digamber Jain Temple that was constructed in the 12th and 13th centuries.
Flora, Fauna & Water Bodies
Besides the two rivers, you also see a couple of lakes, among which, Padam Talao is the largest. Near the lake, you get to see India’s second-largest lake. The tropical dry forest, rocky terrain and open bushland make the land very diverse here.
It becomes a part of the Khathiar-Gir dry deciduous forests with 392km2 of the buffer zone and 275km2 of the core area. The creatures found in abundance here are chital, mugger crocodile, rhesus macaque, southern plans grey langur, sloth bear, striped hyena, sambar, wild boar, nilgai, Indian leopard, and the Bengal tiger.
Like all the other wildlife reserves in India, Ranthambore too had a scanty population of tigers due to prevalent poaching and various other reasons. Today, most of the reserves are doing an impressive job at that front and have been able to provide a safe shelter to the animals.
