Do not let it just be a dream to explore the rich diversity and beauty of the Wildlife Rajasthan Tour. You might wonder why Rajasthan then in particular because India is known for several national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. So, lets start with the main factual information. Firstly, the vegetation in Rajasthan has a very rustic feel to it, especially due to its ephemeral natural type of vegetation which occurs only due to the monsoon season. Secondly,  be it camel safari, elephant safari or even the Jeep rides, Rajasthan wildlife Safari is a class apart. Wildlife lovers also enjoy the wildlife of Rajasthan as they can spot few indigenous and rare species of fauna, mainly birds and animals. Well, you don’t have to even imagine what this place means for the wildlife photographers. Yes, it is nothing less than a paradise for them.

The flora of Rajasthan basically includes trees like Kejri, Ker, thor, akaro, anwal and babul. The exquisite lifestyle of Rajasthan also includes animals such as boars, monkeys, bisons, tigers, deers, panthers, wolves and Bengal Tigers. The lively and engaging twitter of several birds in the various sanctuaries in Rajasthan makes it even more of a splendour. There are several famous wildlife sanctuaries and national parks in Rajasthan, which includes the Ranthambhore National Park, the Sariska Wildlife National park, the Bharatpur bird sanctuary and others.

The spectrum of wildlife that can be explored through the wildlife Rajasthan Tour is simply irresistible. Wetlands, ravines, rocks, scrub thorn arid forests and barren desert make most of the topography of Rajasthan. Each of this distinct topography is known for protecting varied and quite specific kinds of birds and animals, which grow in that respective niche only. Few of the migratory birds, for example, include pelicans, coots, ducks and even the very rare Siberian cranes. We were very impressed to explore the distinct differences between say, Ranthambhore national park and the Sariska National park. Those who love photography, well then, nothing can be a better paradise for them.

Rather than choosing to travel on our own, we decided to opt for the knowledgeable travel agents that informed us about every little detail of the Wildlife Rajasthan Tour. It turned out to be the right choice because it was cost effective. Also, we came to know about the history of various quaint towns and cities of Rajasthan, along with the forts and palaces. It all made our journey very exciting. The rustic and virgin beauty of the land of Rajasthan gets even more special because most of the land is not commercially used, and hence, is there by able to preserve its untouched identity. The next time you do engage in wildlife Rajasthan tour, do plan and select the best offers in advance.

Rajasthan is a place where you can feel the magic of ancient times. Its big palaces, rich culture, colourful festivals make it a must-see place. Opulence of flora and fauna make it a perfect destination for wildlife tour. The land of Rajasthan houses a number of attractions like Ranthambore National Park, Desert National Park and Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary.

Some of my friends planned a and they asked me to come along. Since the plan was for weekend, I gave my consent to this tour. When we reached Rajasthan, we all were excited to see its wildlife as I have heard a lot about the same. Thinking of adventures, we took a jeep safari and left for Ranthambore National Park.

Located in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan, Ranthambore National Park is the biggest park. Our guide was answering our queries and sharing his knowledge about this park. He told us that this park used to be the most popular hunting spot of the Maharajas of Jaipur. We also took some pictures of tigers as the memories of our wildlife tour. Tigers and other animals were dozing under the sun and watching them was really thrilling. We saw many wild enthusiasts there, who were engaged in the study, behavior of these animals.

Our eagerness to see the wildlife of Rajasthan made us to move towards Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary. The knowledgeable guide, who was accompanying us during this tour, told some interesting facts about this sanctuary. This sanctuary was considered as the hunting reserve of the royal family of the Alwar, Rajasthan. Animal viewing here is a great fun that gives you an enthralling experience. Being a home to many animals, you will find here various carnivores like Tiger, Wild Dog, Leopard, Jackal and Hyena. We were thrilled to see those animals, who were engaged in their daily activities. When we reached around Talvriksh, we saw numerous Rhesus Monkeys.

At last, we decided to visit Keoladeo Ghana National Park, which is also known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. One of my friends already visited this place so he was briefing us about the same during our tour. A home to over 380 resident and even migrant species, Keoladeo offers you an opportunity to watch mammals like Golden Jackal, Jungle Cat, Fishing Cat, Striped Hyaena, Nilgai, Blackbuck and Sambar.

Certainly, this was the most memorable trip for us. The time we spent on watching tigers, lush green surroundings and a range of species of chirpy birds, was really a great fun and the memories of this tour still refreshes my mood.

Ranthambore National Park

The glimpses of wild animals roaming in their natural habitat are full of fun, thrill and excitement that I experienced during my Ranthambore Tour last weekend. My closed friend Nitin invited me for the Ranthambore Wildlife Safari and without giving a second thought, I warmly accepted it. I and Nitin reached Ranthambore on Friday night through our own car. The car trip to Ranthambore from Delhi is itself a story because of the charm and thrill that we have experienced throughout the way.

Ranthambore National Park is among the most famous national parks of India located in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan. The park is situated between the Vindhya and Aravali hills and is bounded by the Banas River from the north and by the Chambal River from the south. There are many lakes in the park which supports a large number of flora, fauna and amphibians species. This sanctuary is one of the most visited attractions of Rajasthan Wildlife Tour.

When we reached this place in the night we stayed in nearby resort. Through the balcony of my room, I saw the wide expanse of this wildlife reserve, which reminded me the scene of a movie. The bright moon and twinkling stars created a dramatic atmosphere which robbed our heart. Though we were eagerly waiting for dawn but our unending gossip gave only few hours to sleep.

Next morning we wake up early and prepared ourselves for safari with our camera. We began our safari at 7 am through a jeep with 4 other visitors. Our guide Sohan Singh used to brief us every moment about the varied flora and fauna of this park. The excerpt of his introductory note was that the national park was hunting ground of the Maharajas of Jaipur, which became one of the Project Tiger reserves in 1973 and a national park in 1980. According to government data this national is the home of 40 types of mammals, 320 species of birds both resident and migratory, 40 classes of reptiles, 02 amphibian species, 50 species of butterflies and 300 varieties of plants.

Few minutes after our safari began a group of 5 Rusty Spotted cats swiftly crossed our way. We were looking here and there to see other animals. This keen searching was broken by two leopards behind the bush. We stayed here for a while and took several snaps of playing leopards.

When we proceed further we saw other animals of this sanctuary like wild boar, sambhar, chinkara (Indian gazelle), spotted deer (Chital) and wild buffalo. But we were dying to see royal Bengal tigers the pride of this wildlife reserve. We requested Sohan to take away to that place we there are good chances to see the king of a jungle.
On our kind request Sohan took us 2 to 3 km northward of this national park where the chances of spotting tiger are high. But he didn’t guarantee it. He told us that it is on your luck. Our jeep driver was moving slowly so that we have a chance to see tigers.

Suddenly, one of our co-passengers screamed out after seeing the Royal Bengal Tiger behind the bushes. Our guide told us to remain silent and keep watching because any movement would be a provocative signal for nearby tiger, which could result anything.

After 15-20 minutes the king of a jungle vanishes into the bush, and our driver headed us towards the exit point because it is 10: 30 am, which means the end of morning safari.
With several memories in our heart and in our camera we returned to our resort. This safari will remain one of the memorable safaris for me because for the first I closely saw the Royal Bengal tiger and other animal species.

 Kumbhalgarh Forts Kumbhalgarh Forts

Royalty and splendour of Rajasthan always captivate my imagination and fascination which brings me to this place time and again. Last week I with my two friends planned to spend our weekend at Kumbhalgarh Fort which is located 84 km from Udaipur. We reached Udaipur, popularly known as the Venice of the East in the morning by Mewar Express from Delhi. After reaching here we hired a taxi and reached Kumbalgarh Fort after 2 hours of road journey.

Kumbhalgarh is a fortress located in Rajsamand District of Rajasthan. It is perched over the Aravalli Hills and is the second most important fort, after the Chittaurgarh Fort, of India. Perimeter of this fort’s walls is extended over 36 kilometres in length which is longest in the world after ‘The Great Wall of China’. Inside the fort premises there are 360 temples out of which 300 are ancient Jain temples and the rest are Hindu temples.

We visited every nook and corner of this majestic fort without any guide. The architectural supremacy and grandiose construction of this fort stunned us during our exploration. The complex structure of this fort enabled it to withstand several attacks from the Gujarat, Malwa and Mughals armies. Built by Rana Kumbha, the fort is situated over 6,233 feet above sea level . It is also the birth place of the legendary King Maharana Pratap. While exploring this royal structure we paid a short visit to Andheri Gate, Suraj Pol, Salim Mahal, Chand Pol, Jai Pol and Laxman Pol.

Among all these places of interest the Badal Mahal is most fascinating aspect of the Kumbhalgarh Fort. It is highest place of the fort which was built by Rana Fateh Singh in the 19th century. I was totally mesmerised by the the view of pastel coloured walls and its changing shades according to sun inclinations. This place offers best scenic views of the entire city and dense greens of the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary. From this point one can also see the 36 km long serpentine boundary wall of this fort.

Some of the equally beautiful structures of this glorious forts are Salim Sagar, Nikumbh Mahal, Suraj Kund and Jal Mahal. This fort also houses a number of small and large towers which offer fascinating bird’s eye view of the surroundings.

The most absorbing part of this place is the resonating sound of Sarangi, Thori, Kamaycha, Ektaara and Mochng which narrate the heroic deeds and love stories of Rajasthan. Seated on the rooftop watching the magnificence of the royal culture with melodious background music was the most captivating part of this tour which will remain intact in my memory forever.

My pulse was racing when I reached incredible Rajasthan to

explore its wildlife. A home to some of the finest wildlife destinations, this state has always fascinated me. I went there purely for a wildlife holiday and came back ‘completely overwhelmed’.

My first halt was the royal Ranthambore National Park, a home to the ferocious tigers and a variety of other wildlife. Encompassing an impressive 1,334 sq km of land, the Park is located in the Sawai Madhour district of Rajasthan. The Park is divided into five zones and we were in the third zone, which offers bright chances of sighting a tiger. The path to this zone is lined with dry dhok, thokra, mango, supari and imli trees. We saw many langurs jumping from tree to tree as if flaunting their fitness like this. They seemed to be least bothered by our presence.

My most memorable moment inside the Park was when I caught sight of a tiger at the Padam Talao( the first and the largest of three lakes inside the third zone). The tiger was busy quenching his thirst. Sensing our presence, the tiger turned back and looked at us for a few seconds and then made his way deep into the forest. It was a sight that will always remain in my memory. My joy knew no bounds as I saw the tiger from close quarters.

As I and K.P Singh, my guide meandered our way into the Park, we were rewarded with the sights of sloth bear, wild boar, monitor lizard, sambar, mongoose, nilgai and porcupines. I was feeling elated as fortune was on our side.

The home of the royal creatures, tigers

The land of sheer natural beauty
A testimony to the glorious history
A treat to the sore eyes
That’s Ranthambhore National Park!

I am sure you must have been to National Parks but a visit to Ranthambhore National Park can never leave you disappointed. Recently I visited this Park, which enjoys a wide variety of wildlife and captivating natural beauty. It is located in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan, and is 130 km from Jaipur. Once the hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur, this Park is now a world famous wildlife destination where tourists come from across the globe.

Popular for its tiger population, the Park is also a home to a variety of wildlife such as Nilgai, Leopard, Indian hare, Mongoose, Sambhar, Chital, Jackal, Antelope, Langur, Black buck, Monitor Lizard and many more. The Park also provides shelter to crocodiles and beautiful birds.

Offering picturesque views, the Park is surrounded by Banas river, Chambal river and hills of Aravali range. Sprawling over an area of 392 sq km, the Park was declared a Project Tiger Reserve in 1973. There are three lakes flowing through this Park, namely Raj Bagh lake, Malik Talab and Padam Talab. These lakes are the promising sites for sighting both birds and animals as they come here to quench their thirst. Jeep and canter safaris are organized twice daily and each safari lasts for three hours.

One of the interesting attractions inside the Park is Ranthambhore Fort
whose history dates back to the 10th century. It is considered as one of the oldest forts of Rajasthan built by the Chauhan Rajputs in 944. The Jogi Mahal within the fort has the second largest Banyan tree in India. The fort offers amazing views of the Park.

Bharatpur National Park- Most Talked About Abode of Enchanting Birds!

Caught by an ardent desire to treat my senses to sights of the colorful birds, I with my guide Bhuvan stepped into the paradise of birds, Bharatpur National Park. Birds have always inspired me in some way or the other. Sometimes their flight made me wonder what true freedom means, sometimes their melodious voices inspired me to understand what life is. In fact, their very presence bring a smile on my face and joy in my heart.

After some tea and breakfast we drove inside the Park, the land of my dream, with my

camera ready to capture the delightful birds. A few birds nested on flowering babool trees were our first guests. Wow! the birds dressed by nature in beautiful plumes were flaunting their brilliant colors. They were preening, displaying, rubbing necks and clacking beaks with each other symbolizing a world of perfect harmony.

Post savoring this sight we moved further. I thought to myself, no wonder this Park is declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Both the resident and migratory birds are the treasure of this Park which attracts bird enthusiasts, both local and international, in great numbers. Located in Rajasthan, this is one destination that occupies a special place on Nature-lover’s itinerary.

A few meters ahead we saw blue-tailed bee-eater savoring its breakfast( grasshopper), Grey francolin enjoying each other’s company, Bronze-winged jacanas swimming swiftly as if showing their skill and Indian rollers displaying their wonderful colors.

Painted storks, cormorants, Spoon bills, Openbills, Black-headed ibis, Grey herons, Night

herons, darters and egrets, Cotton pygmy geese, woodpeckers were the other birds we sighted. How overwhelming! It is really not possible to describe the beauty of these birds in words. One must see it to feel it. I almost spent an hour in clicking the pictures of these fascinating creatures.

Now we headed towards the temple in the Park where the sights of cheetal, jackal and a conglomerate of Grey herons were revealed to us. Contented yet craving for some more, we now headed back, passing some more avian species. Bharatpur National Park is truly a bird’s paradise. While going back a quote by Emily Dickinson raced through my mind, I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven”.
