The Best timing for Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve
Ranthambhore – The Ranthambhore National Park, opens from 1’st October to 30 June, every year for tourists. There are total 10 zones for safari purpose. Zones 01 to 05 are considered to be of high preference as this has been the oldest part of park. Of course zone 03 is the most perfect habitat for tigers, with two big lakes. Except these zones, rest 06 to 10 zones, they open in rainy season also. So that if someone comes then, they should be able to see the park. This monsoon period is July, August & September.
If you are a real wild lifer then best time to visit the park is from November to March. The bird watching will also be good during this period. The nature is at its best.
If you are wildlife Photographer then March to June will be good time for you.
If you are General tourist and aim is just for tiger sightings then also November to June will be good period. But try to avoid busy holidays vacations period. But we do understand that holidays are needed for travelling. The busiest periods for Ranthambhore are Diwali, Christmas & New Year and Holi festival. Lot of tourists come to Ramthambhore. For this period I suggest that safari to be booked in advance. Because in current system you will get the tickets but this process make delay & you are not able to spend good time in the park. Sometimes vehicles enter one hour delay inside the park , which reduces sightings chances by 50%. To know detail about tiger sighting please click.
