Rajasthan is a haven for a wide spectrum of wildlife. The topography of Rajasthan ranges from the barren desert, scrub-thorn arid forests, rocks and ravines to wetlands and lush, green forests. And each of these areas houses a large variety of animal and bird life. Some of them rare while some endangered. Rajasthan is the home of the tigers, black bucks, chinkara, the rare desert fox, the endangered caracal, the great Indian bustard, gavial, monitor lizard, wild boars, and porcupine.
We will see a lot of wildlife whilst riding through Rajasthan but a visit to Ranthambore National Park cannot be missed. We will embark on 2 safaris in search of the tiger, one of the most magnificent animals of India, which has long fascinated people with its awesome power and beautifully striped coat. Other animals include sambhar, cheetal, deer, crocodile, monkey, langur, wild boar, leopard, sloth bear, jackal, hyena, panther, leopard, desert fox, among others. The Ranthamore National Park certainly is one of the most picturesque game reserves in the world - the entire forest being dominated by the silent, ruined battlements of the Ranthambore Fort, which is inside the sanctuary. Another interesting feature of the park is a huge banyan tree - supposedly one of the world's largest - near the graceful Jogi Mahal water palace. Covered under Project Tiger (one of Asia's most important conservation efforts), Ranthambhor is the favourite haunt of wildlife buffs and professional wildlife photographers from around the world.
