Canter Safari

Canter is an open-roof truck with seating capacity of 20 passengers. It provides complete experience in wildlife viewing. Canter safari is one of the most cost-effective ways to explore the jungle. Only 20 canters are allowed in total for each shift and canter safari happens in 2 shifts in a day. So, it is recommended to book safari in advance as there is a huge number of tourists in a day.

Gypsy

It is an open-air jeep with six seats. It provides the best viewing experience and is best suited for wildlife photography. Jeep safari is always preferred by hardcore wildlife lovers. It can easily go through steep places and can track wildlife without any noise. So, there are better chances of tiger sightings with jeep safari. Jeep safaris are available in double shifts and total 17 jeeps are allowed per shift.

Places to Visit

Located deep in the heart of Ranthambore National Park, Ranthambore Fort stands proudly over 700 ft. above the hill. It has played a vital role in the history of Rajasthan. It is a worthy visit to get the serene views of the national park. The timings are 6 am to 6 pm. Don’t forget to catch the beautiful sunset there.
Located in Ranthambore Fort, Trinetra Ganesh temple is the only temple which has Lord Ganesha’s statue with 3 eyes and it houses the whole family of him. It is the only temple in the world of its kind.
The ruins are located around Raj Bagh Talao and Padam Talao. These are actually stone structures standing as palace outhouses, arches, steps and domes. It is surrounded by both mysteries and history. They are also used as hideouts by the Bengal tigers as these are covered by jungles.
It is the fourth natural history museum in India after Bhopal, Bhubaneswar and Mysore. The Rajiv Gandhi Regional Museum of Natural History presents the history of Rajasthan’s natural resources. It shows wildlife exhibits in three main galleries in three stories. You will find the facsimile of several mammals like tigers, lions and gazelle. The real-life representations of Bishnoi community and rural life of Rajasthan is the main attraction here. You can also spot the painting and live pottery created by local artists in the black pottery and painting hall on its first floor.
Around the outskirts of Ranthambore is the valley which has a huge population of panthers as they moved here to avoid their fights with tigers. It has a huge population of sloths due to a lot of ant hills and bee hives. It can be accessed only through jeep safari.
It is one of the largest lakes of Ranthambore. It is believed to be the place where Queen Padmavati committed sati and was used to bathe here. Jogi Mahal is also located around this lake.
It is the smallest lake located in zones 3 and 4 and it is truly a heaven for bird watchers. You can spot kingfishers, ibis, cranes and several other birds as it is the smallest lake here. You can also spot reptiles like Indian marsh crocodiles here.
It is really a beautiful spot stretched over vast acres. It is dotted with dense greens and ancient ruins facing the hill. You can easily find sambar here as they get here for grazing and egrets and other birds can be seen sitting on their backs.

We found MP Tiger Safari Tours & Travels browsing on Internet and contacted them along with many others. This one stood out thanks to Mr. Teerath Singh work: Quick, reliable and clear communication through whatsapp. Good reviews. Great value for money (best quality-price ratio) Flexibility in the programme according to our needs. All included in the package. Once we arrived everything was as promised and even better! Mr. Teerath delivered all that he promised and more, he went above and beyond to satisfy us: The hotels were exceptional, the food amazing, the staff in the parks and hotels were superb, everything always punctual, reliable, well organized... The safaris were awesome! We got to see 14 tigers in 11 safaris! Along with the other beautiful fauna! 😊 We visited Kanha for 3 nights (in Courtyard House Hotel) and Bandhavgarh for 5 nights (in Bandhav Vilas). We highly recommend this park and MP Tiger Safari Tours & Travels and would not hesitate to repeat!
