Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan state, India (home of the Bengal Tiger)
One of the most beautiful places to visit if you are in India, is the magnificent Ranthambore National Park. Ranthambore is the place where you will most likely get the chance to observe a Royal Bengal Tiger at its natural habitat, in all India. Located southwest of Jaipur, near the town of Sawai Madhopur, it is a former royal hunting ground and home to tigers, leopards and marsh crocodiles. Its landmarks include the imposing 10th-century Ranthambore Fort situated on a hilltop, and the Ganesh Mandir temple. Also, the park has a number of lakes, among which, Padam Talao Lake is the biggest one and known for having an abundance of water lilies.
Ranthambore has 10 different safari zones for boosting tourism, these safari zones are well maintained under strict rules and regulations by the conservation authorities of the park. During my two-day stay in Sawai Madhopur I went on three safaris at Ranthambore National Park, to observe the wildlife and especially the Bengal Tigers.
