Ranthambore National Park

Ranthambore National Park is a good place to spot some of the wildlife that India is famous for. The grounds cover 400 square kilometres between the Aravali and Vindhya hill ranges, and are home to 40 species of mammals, 35 species of reptiles and 320 species of birds. Undoubtedly the park’s most famous resident is the Royal Bengali tiger, but you can also spot leopards, hyenas, sloth bears, and crocodiles. The park was established as a game sanctuary in 1955, and was formerly a hunting ground for the Maharajas of Jaipur. In 1980 it gained National Park status, and is now one of the biggest reserves in northern India.  Because of the park’s size, it can be difficult to spot some of the wildlife. The best time to visit is during the dry season, when the animals come out to drink at the watering holes.
