Ranthambore National Park Holidays

Wildlife in abundance

India boasts the highest concentration of free-roaming tigers on the planet – two-thirds of the world’s population, to be precise. If you’ve always dreamed of seeing these majestic creatures in the flesh, Ranthambore National Park should be right at the top of your list.

Also spelled Ranthambhore, this immense expanse of parkland in south-eastern Rajasthan is home to a population of Bengal tigers that roam wild in the 400-square-kilometres’ worth of open grasslands and thick forests.

The tigers are famously diurnal, rather that nocturnal, so you’ve got a great chance of seeing them during the day, and although they were once hunted here by Jaipur's maharajas, they’ve been protected under Project Tiger for more than 40 years.

While the iconic big cats are the park’s biggest draw, there are plenty more creatures to entice you here. Set off on a safari to meet hyenas, sloths, leopards and marsh crocodiles, not to mention more than 270 species of birds. Add that to a smattering of ancient temples and tombs, and the 10th-century hilltop Ranthambore Fort from which the park takes it's name, and you’d be hard pressed to find a reason not to visit.
