“The reddish-orange fur with dark vertical stripes on them- there need be no explanation of what this is. The majestic Tiger is not only the national animal of India but is also revered as the animal that the Goddess Durga rides into battle.
Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary is known for its tigers and is one of the best places in India to see these majestic predators in the jungle. Ranthambhore was established as the Sawai Madhopur Game Sanctuary in 1955 by the Government of India, and was declared one of the Project Tiger reserves in 1973.
Apart from the Tiger, Ranthambore is also home to other wild animals such as leopard, nilgai, wild boar, sambar, hyena, sloth bear and chital; and a wide variety of trees, plants, birds and reptiles. Ranthambore is also the site of one of the largest banyan trees in India. The highlight of a visit to Ranthambore is the safari ride into the national park which gets you that much closer to the chance of spotting the magnificent Tiger in its natural habitat and its complete grace.”
