Get in tune with nature for a luxury holiday in the heart of the jungle. Ranthambore is arguably one of the best places in the world to spot tiger in the wild.

It is this place where most of the documented footage of this majestic beast has been recorded.

It extends over a highly undulating topography that ranges from gentle to steep slopes; from flat topped hills of the Vindhyas to the pointed hillocks and sharp ridges of the Aravalis, from wide and flat valleys to narrow rocky gorges.

Ranthambore
Days 8
Cheetal Deer

In the morning, you will again head for the Full Day Jungle Safari. You will carry your Breakfast and Lunch with you. Take delight in full day game viewing inside the Jungle.

Ranthambore forest falls into the category of tropical dry deciduous forests. It has been further classified as Dhok climax forest because of the predominance of Dhok (Anogeissus pendulla) found nearly everywhere. Dhok is an extremely hardy tree. It can withstand prolonged droughts. The leaves of this tree are good fodder and they are browsed by herbivores, and form a significant part of their diet. Even the dry, fallen leaves, eaten by them, are rich source of nutrition.

Tiger, at the apex of the food chain, lord over the kingdom in a subtle way. Solitary by nature, it operates in stealth. Therefore tiger sightings, frequent as they are, are always a matter of chance. However, even evidences of tiger activities are very exciting.

Ranthambore is a home to other kind of cats too including Leopard (Panthera pardus), Caracal (Felis caracal), Fishing Cat (Felis viverrina), Leopard Cat (Felis bengalensis) and the Jungle Cat (Felis chaus). Apart from big cats, Ranthambore shelters the other large predators like Sloth Bear, Striped Hyena, Jackal, Indian Fox, Wolf, Wild dog (or Dhole), Palm Civet, Small Indian Civet, Marsh Crocodile, Small Indian Mongoose, Common Indian Mongoose, Ratel (or Honey Badger) and the Indian Python. The two species of Antlers that are found here include Spotted Deer (or Chital) and the Sambhar Deer. Two kinds of Antelopes, namely the Indian Gazelle (or Chinkara) and the Bluebull (or Neelgai) also reside in this park.

It has a recorded history of 100 years of duck shoots. There are over 353 species, belonging to 56 families.

These can be spotted during winter here. Also, Nilgai, Chital, Sambar, Black bucks and Pythons are found here.

Days 11

One thousand years ago, under the generous and artistic patronage of the Chandela Rajput kings of Central India, 85 temples, magnificent in form and richly carved, came up on one site, near the village of Khajuraho. The amazingly short span of 100 years, from 950 AD - 1050 AD, saw the completion of all the temples, in an inspired burst of creativity. Today, of the original 85, only 22 have survived the ravages of time; these remain as a collective paean to life, to joy and to creativity; to the ultimate fusion of man with his creator.
