Destination Guide


This reserve in Rajasthan derives its name from the hill top fortress which stands 700 feet above the park. The fort dates back over 700 years and was conquered by Akbar in 1569. The mixture of ancient temples and summer palaces, alongside abundant Indian wildlife provide magical photographic opportunities unique to Ranthambhore. This former hunting ground was infamously visited by Queen Elizabeth II on a 'sporting' trip. It was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1957 and in 1974 under Indira Ghandi's Project Tiger initiative became one of the protected sites.

The ancient mountain ranges of the Aravali and Vindhya meet here producing a mixture of flat tablelands and steep cliffs criss-crossing the park. The varied topography of the 400 sq.km park provides habitats for animals like the jackal, mongoose, sloth bear, leopard, lesser cats and caracal, and of course the tiger. There are 200km of tracks in Ranthambhore divided into pre-determined routes which allow large areas to remain undisturbed, since everyone requires some solitude.
