Welcome to The Ranthambhore Bagh

Regular visitors consider Ranthambore, as one of the best national parks in the world to see Bengal tigers, wild, in their natural habitat. But here you don't just see Bengal tigers you see Noor, Machali , Star male, Unnis and so on. Each of Ranthambore's denizens are well identified and The Ranthambhore Bagh, with its trained team, is perhaps your best bet to know who is who.

Often described as a “secluded ecological island surrounded by fields and over-grazed plains”, the Ranthambhore tiger reserve lies at the intersection of the Aravalis and the Vindhyan hill systems covered by Northern tropical dry deciduous forests.

The reserve lies in Rajasthan’s eastern districts of Sawai Madhopur and Karauli with the Chambal river forming its eastern boundary. The river Banas, a tributary of Chambal, flows through the reserve from the north-west to the south-east, dividing the reserve into two equal halves – the Kela Devi Sanctuary and other parts of the Reserve. Once part of the royal state of Karauli, Kela Devi Sanctuary (670 sq km) is almost half as big as the entire reserve but has little wildlife to offer as most of it is a dry “table top” plateau

The other half of the reserve lies to the southwest of the river Banas, almost totally in the Sawai Madhopur district. These mainly include the Ranthambhore National Park (282 sq km), Sawai Madhopur Sanctuary (131 sq km) and the Sawai Man Singh Sanctuary (113 sq km) and the Kuwalji closed area. Almost all these forests were a part of the Jaipur state before independence. The approach to this part of the Reserve is through the town of Sawai Madhopur, which is also on the main Delhi - Mumbai rail route at a distance of 362 km from Delhi.

For most visitors Ranthambhore means the Ranthambhore National Park, because of its high density of wildlife and the presence of tigers in the national park and its immediate vicinity. All the tiger safaris in Ranthambore are conducted in the national park, Sawai Madhopur and Sawai Mansingh sanctuary, because this is the only part of the entire Project Tiger reserve that has a healthy and visible population of wild tigers.

Bagh Safari

Bagh Safari is the wildlife travel wing of The Ranthambhore Bagh. It is not your regular tour operation company. Instead it is a company that organizes wildlife and wildlife photography events mainly in India, Sri Lanka and east Africa. We only do events in areas that we personally know very well. We enjoy traveling, are passionate about our wildlife and are very serious about wildlife photography. And we like to travel with people who have the same interests.
