One of India’s most popular nature reserves, Ranthambore National Park is known for its small population of friendly tigers, who do not seem to shy away from the approach of humans. Tucked between the rugged Aravalli and Vindhya hills, the reserve also boasts a spectacular landscape filled with border-strewn highland plateaus, lakes and rivers.
At the centre of the park lie the ruins of the 10th century Ranthambore Fort, which overlooks the leafy forests from its perch atop a dramatic rocky outcrop. Apart from its tigers, Ranthambore boasts a healthy population of spotted chital deer, nilgai, jackal, jungle cats, sambar, chinkara gazelle and wild pigs, as well as the slightly rarer sloth bear.
