WHICH IS THE BEST ZONE IN RANTHAMBORE ?
Whenever visitors visit Ranthambore, the biggest dilemma arises in front of them is to choose the best safari zone in Ranthambore.
The Ranthambore is present in the Sawai Madhopur district of southeastern Rajasthan, which is about 130 km from Jaipur.
There are a total of 10 safari zones in Ranthambore National Park which is one of the huge and popular national parks in Northern India.
Perhaps each and every safari zone is unique and best in its own way, every safari zone has different varieties of animals.
The ideal time to explore the Ranthambore National Park is the months between October and March
In these months, one can experience a pleasurable climate, covered with a bunch of flowers that attract the visitors by giving eye-catching scenes.
If you are preparing your journey in between late December and early January, be ready with winter clothes to keep you warm in the cold weather.
Because of the rainy season, visitors are not allowed in the park during the months of July to September.
If you have the plan to visit Ranthambore for the very first time then you can visit Zone 1 to 5 as these are considered as the best zones for tiger sighting.
If you don’t find the availability of jeeps in this zone then you can opt for canters because canters are a very good option if jeeps are not available which differ in the way that a jeep can accommodate only 6 people at a time while a canter can accommodate up to 12 people at a time.
If jeeps are not available at that moment you can go for canters in zone 1 to 5.
However, zones 7, 8 and 10 are well known for the less chance of tiger sighting but it is not so that you will never see any tiger here.
These zones also have a good population of tigers.
Your jeep along with your guide will take you to the beautiful Balas, kundaal, chidikho and Aantri area of the Tiger reserve.
So these zones are one of the good zones in Ranthambore
Zones 1 to 5 offers beautiful scenes and the touch of nature as well as wildlife. Here you can easily find the leopard, the Honey Buzzard, and hyena.
That is why this is considered to be the popular zones in Ranthambore national park.
There is something important to pay attention to that only 20% of the park is available for the visitors.
That 20% of the area that is available is further divided into 10 zones.
Most of the visitors visit only one zone at a time visit that means you will be able to visit only 2% of the whole park in your visit.
So, if you are fortunate enough then only you will be able to see the tigers.
That’s why you should always consult any guide or expert about the best zone in Ranthambore in which tigers are available at that time.
Mostly the tigers are available at the place where the water source is available.
