Sunrise in Ranthambore – A herd of chital deer approaches confidently on the shore of Lake. A few meters from them a huge crocodile specimen of the marshes is confused with a trunk floating along the shore.

From the river bed, you can hear the furtive sounds of the jungle. The call of the Male Peacocks, who strive to attract the females with their striking courtship. A cry of alarm precedes the trot of a large nilgai, the blue bull of the forest. As it passes, a beautiful specimen of Indian pita rises, a blue and red flash in the middle of the thicket.

The hullabaloo jumps and games of a family group of langur monkeys betray the presence of a golden jackal, which sniffs through the undergrowth. Oblivious to them, a large, bearded bear devours a nest of termites next to one of the roads that go up to the fort of Ranthambore. The old fort, surrounded by a stone wall set in an imposing rocky outcrop, dominates the horizon of the national park. And above all of them, a shadow flutters in the middle of the thicket, a grated ghost, half animal, half forest spirit. Its roar dominates the valley and shakes the rest of its inhabitants. This is Ranthambore, the most famous national park in India. A paradise in the middle of the exhausted landscape of Rajasthan.

With its 392 square kilometers area, Ranthambore is not one of the largest national parks in India, but one of the most emblematic. It was protected in 1973 when it was included in the Tigre Project and later declared as a national park in 1980. It had previously served as a hunting reserve for local maharajas. In those years the hunting of the tiger was a frequent activity among the local elites, as attested by numerous images and testimonies on the Internet.

The Ranthambore National Park is located in the SawaiMadhopur district, about 130 kilometers from Jaipur, within Rajasthan. Inside there are several Hindu temples, such as Kaila Devi or Mansingh. Above them stands the impressive fort of Ranthambore that gives its name to the national park.

One of the first things that will surprise you as soon as you reach Ranthambore is the arid landscape of its surroundings. Taking the road by road from nearby Jaipur it is not uncommon to find camel caravans or groups of shepherds with their herds of goats. The vegetation is sparse and the climate is dry and arid.

It is hard to think that a few kilometers away, between the hills, there is an oasis of life in which the wild fauna is at ease. And it is literally like that. The national park is completely surrounded by a two-meter-high stone wall. Outside of it, the stalls, houses, and livestock of a population that grows at a net rate of more than 40 million people every year are crowded. Above the wall, you can see the majestic treetops, the sounds of the jungle, the kingdom of the Tiger.


The dangers that surround the Tigers of Ranthambore

The world population of tigers barely exceeds 4,000 specimens in the world, half of them in India. Of these, about 60 live in the national park of Ranthambore, one of the pioneers in forming the Tiger Project.

In early 2000, poaching reduced the park’s population of tigers to just under 20. Since then, the conservation efforts of the Indian authorities seem to have had an effect, reaching almost 60 current specimens.

Attacks on human beings are punctual but they continue to be a reality. However, most problems appear when tigers prey on domestic livestock. Even today, conflicts with the local population have been greatly reduced and the tiger is generally spoken with respect and admiration.


The reintroduction of Tigers

Dharampur is located at a distance of about 15 km from Kasauli and is known for its hospital. This hospital is considered as one of the best in the country for the treatment of tuberculosis. The fresh air of Dharamapur is very relaxing. Visit this place to feel a renewed vigor in your heart and soul.


Dagshai

The situation has improved to the point that Ranthambore is reaching the maximum capacity of tigers that can accommodate. For this reason, some specimens that come out of the reserve are captured and used in relocation programs. Their destination is usually nearby national parks such as Panna or Sariska. They are natural spaces with great possibilities to house tigers, but in which the populations of this animal were recently exterminated by poaching.
Behind this tragedy is the absurd demand for traditional Chinese medicine. In the black market, bones and tiger skin are sold as remedies with supposed magical attributions. Needless to say, there is no study or scientific principle that endorses these magical powers. It is incredible that a myth is the cause of the disappearance of one of the most beautiful animals in the world in the 21st century.


The anonymous Heroes of Ranthambore

From our personal experience, we want to highlight the work of the national park guards. Unlike other national park guards, for example, Africans, the Ranthambore park nursery does not carry rifles or go off-road. They hardly have the means to carry out their work. Instead, it is common to see them guard the roads climbed on bicycles and armed with a long ax or a stick. Maybe tigers are not the greatest danger they have to face. It is not difficult to imagine the result of a meeting with poachers if the weapons to confront them are described.


Sabathu

You will also find the effect that nature tourism is having on the local population especially important. In general, the perception of the people with whom youwill talk about the park and its tigers will be quite good.


Safari in Ranthambore National Park

To visit the park, it is obligatory to do it through the official vehicles, with local guide and driver. There are two types, in a Maruti Gypsy 6-seater off-road or in the 20-seater Canter trucks, both convertibles. The visit consists of four off-road safaris. Always carry out two safaris a day, one at dawn (from 6:00 to 10:00) and another in the afternoon (from 14:30 to 18:00). The park is zoned in 10 areas of which the former are usually more likely to see tigers. Only 20% of the total national park can be visited, the rest is totally closed to traffic.


The Jungle Book

The landscape is absolutely spectacular and it improves as you enter the thicket. You follow the tortuous channel of a river encased between cuttings. The rocks and leafy vegetation evoked the tales of Kipling. You will feel that Baloo, Sher Khan and Mowgli himself will appear at any moment.

However, you will be passed by in front of Sambars, Peacocks, Crocodiles of the marshes … Just a brief pause not to run over a beautiful Mongoose. Once you enter the soft hills covered with vegetation, an area known as the forest of NalGhati-Kamaldhar, you will see several Tigers.

The Tigers will appear suddenly and it will be hard for you to assimilate what is in front of you. One of the last Tigers of Bengal, in the wild, less than four meters away, looking into your eyes.


Other mammals inRanthambore National Park

With the thirst for Tiger and completely sated, you will see other species that inhabit this wonderful national park. The most abundant species, as in other national parks in India, are still ungulates. The herd of Chital Deer (Axis axis) and the Sambar Deer are the most common. You will also be able to see the Nilgai, which looks much more robust and larger than the previous ones. In Ranthambore also live the Chinkara and the Black Antelope.
Other very abundant and simple mammals to see in the park are the Monkeys’ Langurs, the Squirrels, and the Indian Hare.


Other animals in Ranthambore National Park

Among the birds, there are almost 300 species. There are so many that we cannot name. More than 50 species. We highlight the Peacock because it is well known, abundant and the easiest to see. The Indian Pita for its color, and the Gray OcycerosBirostris for its imposing beak, Parrots, Bee-Eaters, Kingfishers, Raptors and it is also possible to see several species of Cobra and the famous Python of India.
