Rajasthan Wildlife: The Territory of Rare and Scare Species!

Rajasthan is a safe haven for a wide and colorful range of wildlife. The landscape of Rajasthan broadly varies from the infertile arid wilderness, dense scrub-thorn woods, rocks and gorges to swamps and lush, very thick grassy woodlands. And each of these huge parts is a beautiful home for a big diversity of amazing endangered beasts and bird life. Some of them rare while some seriously scarce.

The state houses tigers, black bucks, chinkara, the sporadic desert fox, the greatly threatened caracal, the great Indian bustard, gavial, monitor lizard, wild boars, and porcupine. Exotic traveling birds like the common crane, ducks, coots, pelicans and the rare Siberian cranes, imperial sand grouse, falcons, buzzards herd to this land throughout the bitter chilly winter months.  Rajasthan proudly lays claim to two National Parks, over a dozen Sanctuaries and two Closed Areas. Most of these wide expanses are open to tourists and guests ceaselessly around the year but remain shut temporarily through the rainy season.

The Ranthambore park lies in the shadow of the Aravalli and Vindhya mountain ranges and covers a core area of 275 sq km (106 sq miles). Its razor-sharp ridges, deep boulder-filled gorges, lakes and jungles are the habitat of carnivores such as the caracal, panther, jackal and hyena, numerous species of deer, and a rich variety of resident and migratory birds. The most famous resident, however, is the endangered tiger, and it’s a unique experience to catch glimpses of this majestic animal. Like other parks in the region, this was originally the hunting ground of Jaipur’s Maharajas and it only became a Project Tiger Reserve in the year 1973.

Tiger safaris are the most prominent activities at Ranthambore. Don’t miss the Ranthambhore fort and wake up early to witness the forest at sunrise. You could also see Ganesh Temple, Jogi Mahal and Ranthambhore School of Art.

There are a plethora of hotels to choose from to fit every budget. While, Nahargarh-Ranthambore is the perfect place from which to explore the territory of the majestic tigers and beyond. The luxury suites at Nahargarh with fascinating interiors, finely carved balconies, luxurious bathrooms and private walled gardens are in perfect contrast to the ruggedness of the jungle.
