Ranthambhore National Park Tours & Holidays
Escorted tours of Ranthambore
The former hunting ground of Indian princes, beautiful Ranthambore National Park, today, is a perfect natural habitat for endangered tigers and countless other species.
Said to be an inspiration for some of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Jungle Book’ stories, Ranthambore National Park is not only one of the largest in northern India; it’s one of the best examples of conservation in the whole country.
This national park stands atop a 600-metre-high hill range and is home to a vast array of wildlife. Take a ranger escorted Ranthambore National Park tour and go in search of some of the park's most revered inhabitants. From leopards and Indian foxes to sambar deer and mongooses, cameras will certainly be kept busy on our Golden Triangle & Shimla tour. Of course, you'll also want to keep your eyes peeled for any sign of the estimated 80 tigers that call the area home. Bird watchers, meanwhile, will be delighted with a visit here; the park is home to more than 300 species of birds, including owls, eagles, kingfishers, nightjars and waterfowl.
In addition to the ample wildlife, Ranthambhore trips also provide the chance to visit several attractions located within it, including a fort and 13th-century temple. Our Ranthambore holiday packages also include visits to more of India's most enigmatic destinations, from the Taj Mahal to the Amber Fort.
