About Ranthambhore National Park
Ranthambhore National Park is located near the town of Sawai Madhopur, beautifully nestled between the Aravali and Vindhya mountain ranges. The park is rated among the most important and famous tiger reserves of India and it was among the first tiger reserves to be covered under the project tiger plan started in 1973 to protect tigers in India. On tours to Ranthambhore National Park, you can see tigers prowling cleverly in the lush grasslands in search for their prey or drinking water on the banks of lakes and watering holes during the evening.

Ranthambhore National Park of Rajasthan is one of the best places to witness the rich wildlife of India. Queen of National Parks in India, Ranthambhore is the finest tiger reserve in India where tigers roam freely in the open sky. Nestled in the serene surroundings of Sawai Madhopur, Ranthambhore is approximately 150 kms from Jaipur. Once an exclusive hunting ground of the royal family of Jaipur, Ranthambhore is now a protected wildlife sanctuary. Though Ranthambhore National Park is a home to over 200 species of birds and mammals, yet is majorly renowned for the majestic beast the Royal Bengal Tigers found here in its natural habitat. Ranthambhore National Park was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1957. It became a significant part of "Project Tiger" in 1974 before it gained the status of a National Park in 1981.
