Wildlife Santuaries

There is no better time to visit wildlife sanctuaries than in the summer months, before the monsoon sets in. Do we see you groaning at the idea of traipsing through the hot, steamy jungle? Well, for one thing, you will most likely be driving through the cool forests early in the morning or late in the afternoon, and in the comfort of a jeep; or more excitingly, on the back of an elephant! Also, the dried vegetation
makes animal sightings easier, and summer is when the animals come out in search of waterholes. So dig out your safari hats and your jungle boots and check out some of the impressive wildlife sanctuaries in India.

In The North
Ranthambore National Park in eastern Rajasthan is 362 km from Delhi (nearest major airport – Jaipur), and was once the hunting preserve of the Maharajas of Jaipur. This is one of the largest national parks in northern India. It is known for its tigers and is one of the best places to see
these majestic predators in the jungle. Tigers can be easily spotted even during the day time. April-May is the best time to visit, with a lot of reported sightings of tigers around the waterholes. The park is closed during the monsoon months of July to September. Click here to read the full article.
