Ranthambore Tiger Extension

Ranthambore Tiger Extension

Trip rating
  • Add to your adventure in India by visiting Ranthambore National Park to search for the Royal Bengal tiger. This beautiful wildlife reserve is dominated by a 10th century fort that overlooks what was a former hunting ground of the maharajas. Resplendent with lakes, forested trails, rocky outcrops and Mughal ruins, it is home to many species of India's exotic wildlife including nilgai, chinkara (Indian gazelle), sambar deer, chital (spotted deer), langur monkey, mugger crocodile and over 300 species of birds; however, our main aim will be to spot the magnificent and elusive tiger.


    Day 1-2 - Ranthambore National Park

    (Train journey time: approx 6½ hours) We leave the bustle of the city of Delhi early and head to some of the last remnants of wilderness in India. We travel by train to Sawai Madhopur and transfer to the park. Ranthambore National Park is one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in India. It was a former hunting ground for the maharajas and the park is still contains ruins of temples and mosques, as well as an impressive 10th-century fort that dominates the surroundings from the top of a large hill. The park is a favourite amongst bird watchers, but many people come here to spot some of India's exotic large animals. Antelopes such as nilgai and blackbuck can be commonly seen, as well as axis deer and sambar deer. There are large families of active monkeys known as langur, often seen playing around at the park entrance, but our main aim here is to try and spot the magnificent and elusive Royal Bengal tiger. It is not always easy to spot a tiger in the wild and doing so will certainly be an experience of a lifetime. During our time here, we have three safari drives included in our tour extension. Any additional safaris will be subject to availabilty and will be at additional costs.


    Day 3 - Delhi

    (Train journey time: approx 6½ hours) We are transferred to the railway station in Sawai Madhopur around late morning and catch a day train back to Delhi. The journey takes between six to seven hours. Our trip ends on arrival in Delhi. If you wish to spend some more time in Delhi we recommend you book additional accommodation for this night. If you are leaving on this day as most flights leave Delhi in the late evening we would also suggest you leave yourself enough time to go out to the airport. If you are spending extra time in Delhi, there is still plenty to see. Humayun's Tomb and Safdarjang's Tomb are other great examples of Mughal architecture and design. The narrow streets of Old Delhi are worth exploring, with the highlights being Red Fort and the impressive Jama Masjid (Great Mosque). Raj Ghat is a monument that marks the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. Hauz Khas Village is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown - a chic artistic enclave set right next to the remnants of a historical site.
