Ranthambore National Park & Tiger Reserve, situated in Northen India, is one of the most popular wildlife destinations to sight the majestic predator in its natural habitat.

The Park was a hunting ground of the royals of Jaipur until 1970. It has derived its name from the 10th century Ranthambore Fort situated within the forest and is open for tourist visits. Ranthambore is also considered an important heritage site due to the ancient ruins found inside. With a combination of dry deciduous forest and swaths of grasslands, it has been home to rich biodiversity.
