Escorted Rail Tours to Ranthambore National Park
Tiger, tiger, burning bright
One of the largest national parks in India, Ranthambore is located 81 miles (130 kilometres) from Jaipur, in the Sawai Madhopur District of southeastern Rajasthan. The National Park is home to the ruins of a 10th century fort and a wildlife sanctuary, considered to be the country's best for observing and photographing the activities of the tiger. The park covers an area of 151 square miles (392 square kilometres) and is home to more than 300 species of birds. Whilst tiger sightings are not guaranteed, Ranthambore National Park is about the only place in India where tigers are still found in the wild. Keep your eyes open for crocodiles, deer and monkeys too.
