RANTHAMBORE: Alight at the Sawai Madhopur Railway station early this morning.
Board the bus to reach Ranthambore, one of the finest tiger reserves in the country acclaimed as the most likely place to spot tigers.
Enjoy a morning safari in the national park. Ranthambore is home to several species other than the tiger; you can see herds of Chital, Sambhar deer, wild boar, Nilgai antelope , chinkara gazelles and many more. Extensive bird life includes jungle fowl, partridges, quails, the crested serpent eagle, woodpeckers, flycatchers etc. If it’s your lucky day, you could spot a tiger lolling around lazily in the sun, or feverishly hunting down deer around the lakes.
