Ranthambhore Tiger Safari
Ranthambhore Tiger Safari
At Ranthambhore Regency, we leave no stone unturned to give you the best safari experience Ranthambhore offers. Book our passionately organised jungle drives with experienced, elite guides for a magical escapade into Ranthambore’s Premiere Reserve.
Best time to Visit –
Ranthambhore National Park opens its doors to tourists from the 1st of October each year, till 30th June of the consecutive year.
Though most tourists set foot into the Reserve mainly in the winter (November-March) to avoid the blazing summer sun, the period from November to February is recommended for exceptional wildlife viewing and sighting the migratory avifauna from as far as Russia and Siberia who make Ranthambhore their winter home.
But, if it is the elusive tiger that you want to glimpse, the summer months (April-June) provide easy sightings, though the temperatures may soar up to 40 degree Celsius.
Thus, the ideal time for visiting the park is in March when the fauna, avifauna and comfortable temperatures play gracious hosts.
