Arrival in Sawai Madhopur
Today, you’ll travel by private car from Jaipur to Sawai Madhopur, near to the National Park. You’ll stay in a comfy safari tent set amongst landscaped rolling gardens. In the late afternoon, your local guide will take you to Ranthambore Fort, a massive structure full of chattering monkeys and bright green parrots. Here, you can listen for the alarm calls of the gazelles and sambar deer below. If you hear them, there’s a real chance that a tiger is on the prowl somewhere nearby.
Ranthambore National Park
At sunrise, you’ll set off on your first safari in a Canter (20 seats). If you’d like to upgrade to a jeep safari (usually 6 or so seats), just let our travel specialist know. Tigers often stalk around the lakes at dawn for a morning drink so with a little luck, you’ll spot one during the safari. Even without tigers, it’s an enchanting experience. There are atmospheric views of the lakes, lined with animals lapping up the glassy water.
Afterwards, you’ll return to your hotel for lunch and an afternoon snooze before your evening game drive. You’ll be incredibly lucky if you spot a wild tiger, but you’ll certainly encounter gazelles, crocodiles, sambar deer, monkeys and all sorts of other creatures.
The next day you’ll depart Ranthambore National Park ready for your next adventure.
