Geo details

Ranthambore Tiger Reserve The only dry and deciduous Tiger reserve habitat in the world, Ranthambore lies in the Sawai Madhopur district of eastern Rajasthan. It is the only abode for wild bengal tigers in the entire Arravli hill ranges. The national park was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1957 and in 1974 it gained the protection of "Project Tiger".

The meandering Banas river and still water bodies at Ranthambore makes a picture perfect wildlife park. It is a wildlife enthusiast and photographers dream. This park is located in the area, where the Aravali and the Vindhya hill ranges meet and this confluence is perhaps the reason for the rich bio-diversity.

The landscape of Ranthambore is dotted with ancient Banyan Trees, Dhok & Pipal trees, mango trees and crisscrossed with evergreen belts. The terrain comprises of massive rock formations, steep scarps, perennial lakes and streams. The open bush land of the forest suddenly opens up into large areas of Savannah. However, the large area of the forest cover is typically dry deciduous type, with Dhok, being the most prominent tree.

There are over 320 species of birds, both resident and migratory, over 40 species of mammals and over 35 species of reptiles. The tiger reserve is not only the haunt of wild bengal tiger but many other wild cats which include Leopards, Caracals, Jungle cats, Rusty Spotted cats. The ungulates in the reserve include Sambhar, Spotted deer (Chital), Blue bull (Nilgai), Chinkara (Indian gazelle) and Wild boar.
