Ever dreamed of seeing earth’s majestic tigers in real life? In Ranthambore National Park, dreams come true.
As well as its treasures of cuisine and culture, architecture and adventure, India has another significant allure. Home to the world’s highest density of wild, roaming tigers - two-thirds of the entire global population - this is the place to witness these stealthy and sensational creatures in the flesh.
Situated in south-eastern Rajasthan, a vast landscape of tropical deciduous trees, rolling grasslands and dense forest, Ranthambore provides sanctuary to a large population of wild Bengal tigers. Once a royal hunting ground for the Maharajas of Jaipur, the Ranthambore tigers have been protected under Project Tiger for more than 40 years. Bengal tigers roam during the day, rather than the night, meaning Ranthambore National Park offers unparalleled opportunities to see some of nature’s most mesmerising creatures in their natural habitats - and the ultimate setting for incredible safari tours.
Ranthambore tours: a safari like no other
Ranthambore National Park offers more than just its iconic big cat residents. Dive into the depths of the jungle to spot cackling hyenas, slow-moving sloths, graceful leopards and crocodiles lurking in the shallows. Gaze upwards to the flit and dance of countless exotic birds in the forest-canopy - more than 270 different species found here.
Within Ranthambore, further interest is found in the huge and imposing tenth-century Ranthambore Fort, perched on a hilltop in the middle of thick jungle. Soak in spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and spot eagles and vultures gliding overhead. Nearby, explore the Ganesh Temple, one of Rajasthan’s oldest and most renowned temples.
Visit Ranthambore during your India adventure for a thrilling experience with nature’s most wild and wonderful creatures. Continue your journey in Rajasthan, and while you’re in India, why not explore further - to the green reaches of the Himalayas or the coastal stretches of Kerala? Anything is possible.

“Visit Dastkar on your way into Ranthambore - a place selling authentic items crafted by local village women. There are an array of things to buy, and it’s good to support the initiative - designed to bring income to women in the area.”
“While you’re in Ranthambore, you must go on a safari drive. The best time to go is between November and March, and this is the best chance to spot tigers and other wildlife. The fort can be visited as part of a Ranthambore safari between October and June - admission for the fort is free.”
