Ranthambore National Park is a major wildlife destination that has garnered the attention of photographers and animal lovers. The forests around the 10th-century Ranthambore Fort — once the private hunting grounds of the maharajas of Jaipur — were established by the Indian government as a game sanctuary in 1955. Declared one of the Project Tiger reserves in 1973, Ranthambore became a national park in 1980 and remains an outstanding example the country’s conservation efforts.

The park is notably one of the best locations in India to see Bengal tigers in their natural habitat. Your vehicle moves along special routes where tiger sightings are most common. The tigers can be spotted easily, even during the daytime, as they roam around, bask in the sun, hunt and care for their young ones. In addition to these large jungle cats, the park is also home to a gamut of other animal species such as jackals, mongooses, sloths, bears, peacocks, gazelles and wild boars.

After your game drive, head to your accommodation and check in before you’re treated to lunch at your hotel. In the afternoon, embark on a second 3-hour jungle safari in a Jeep before returning to the hotel for dinner and an evening at your leisure.

We were picked up from our hotel and delivered to our sleeping compartment on the train and royally looked after. We were picked up and transferred to our hotel for breakfast before our first safari. Then followed some down time then another safar. Our guide was superbly knowledgeable and was as disappointed as we were not to spot a tiger. We did see a leopard and many sloth bears
Then back to the hotel for dinner. The following day we left to return to Delhi. The train was running late but our tour guide remained with us and entertained us with stories of life in the area before ensuring that we were setttledd on the train for our return.
Would recommend this tour.

The overall Trip was great I would recommend to travelers to insist that they travel FIRST CLASS on the overnight train trip because the 2nd class sleeper car that was provided by the travel agent was akin to being in a prison ship. The Overnight train ride was in a wretched sleeper with four strangers, the inmates on Orange is the New Black have better accommodation. When I came back to Delhi and saw this 2nd class cabin again I insisted on paying for an upgrade to first class. It was about 10 buck more expensive but definitely worth it. That being said the trip overall was quite enjoyable, the hotel was great the safari amazing and the staff very attentive and helpful.

A very comfortable overnight train journey in a first class carriage. We were met and escorted at each stage of the journey. We were given zone 8 in the morning, seeing few animals, but in the afternoon we had zone 4 - wonderful! Our guide was very excited, and indeed, amongst other animals, we saw a beautiful tigress. The company phoned us in the evening to check we had seen a tiger - I think if we hadn't, we could probably gone on another expedition, but the line wasn't too clear. Would recommend.

I enjoyed this trip from the moment I left my hotel. It was my first experience with the Indian railway, so the guide helped me all the way to my seat on the train before leaving. The guides I had one in Delhi and one in Ranthambore were very helpful, they checked in on me and made sure I was enjoying the trip.
On the actual safari, we did not see any tigers, but we did see a leopard, which is apparently quite rare. In addition to the leopard we saw monkeys, peacocks, lizards, crocodiles, many species of birds, and deer. The jeep rides were fun and the scenery was beautiful. I went the last weekend they were open before monsoon, so there was a lot of greenery from rain a few days prior.
There is nothing to do in Ranthambhore other than the safari, so between the morning and afternoon trips 10am-3pm, there was nothing to do. I sat by the pool for a little, but it was very hot. I have a hard time sitting still, so I would have appreciated a mid day excursion.
The hotel was average. The food was good, my room was cool, the bed was comfortable firm and the staff were polite but the bathroom was a little gross, and the pool was murky.
Overall, I recommend this trip if you are not very familiar or comfortable traveling India or do not want to do all the planning yourself. Otherwise, you could plan the trip yourself and save a lot of money.

Ranthmbore NP was the highlight of my 10 days in India. The two safaris were perfect. Saw plenty of wildlife and on the second safari there were 2 tigers. The park is divided up into segments that allow for a limited amount of vehicles in each segment so it never seemed too crowded.
My tour contact, Arshad, met me at the hotel, stayed with me at the train station and escorted me onto the train to my train cabin. I was very grateful for him staying with me as the train station late at night for a single female did not feel safe. Plus he was a wealth of knowledge on Indian places, people and culture. The overnight train ride was not luxurious but was great use of time. Just be aware of your train arrival time and be out of your cabin and near the exit. There are no notifications for the train stops and when it is dark outside, you can not see the stop from inside the cabin. If you are taking the train overnight, request the 1st class sleeping quarters. This is two bunks, sleeping four people per room. Coming back during the day, second class was fine as I was just sitting up watching the towns go by.
I stayed at the Jungle Retreat and it was a lovely boutique resort with excellent food and very helpful staff. The best staff at any resort I stayed at in India.
Noticed a few comments about the tour being title Private. The safari's are not private, there are always 5-6 people per jeep in order to maximize the number of people visiting the park and limiting the number of vehicles. This worked for me as it was nice to enjoy the safari with other tourist as I was travelling solo.

Lots of antelopes, wild boar etc.

Our end goal! A beautiful tigress - as she lay down in the sunshine

Tigers are wild animals, but we were lucky enough to see this one

Morning Bath

The tiger just strolled down from the hills, walked across the road and then soaked in the pool. It was totally posing for us. After getting many pictures of him, he decided he was finished and walked back into the brush. Loved seeing a tiger in the wild!

Image

Peacock

One of the many peacocks... we saw many dancing as well.

Image

Nasty Train

This will be your luxurious form of transportation

Image

Tiger paw prints!

This was (unfortunately) as close as we got to actually seeing a tiger :(

Image

Beautiful Park!

View of the dirt road next to a lake.

Image

Lots of deer!

Two deer grazing in a field. With the amount of deer in this park, it's safe to say the tigers will never go hungry!
