New Tiger Zone at Ranthambhore National Park

Good news from the Jungle!! The Ranthambhore National Park will open a new zone for Tiger Safari from January 18, 2014.

Tiger sighting is something which is on top of the minds of tourists visiting Ranthambhore National Park. No chital or chinkara could quench that thirst to see and click a tiger. But the over load traffic of visitors at the various permitted tiger zones has made it uneasy for the visitors as well as forest habitats. So as to reduce the tourist pressure on the existing nine zones, one more new zone is opened for Tiger Safari in the area called Antri at Ranthambhore National Park.

So, what is rolling over your mind? Rejoice and plan for an adventurous and hustle free Tiger Safari at Ranthambhore National Park. Ranthambhore Kothi with all the relaxing and delighting facilities would be your gracious host to rejuvenate before and after the Tiger Safari!!

Machhli; the most photographed tigress of Ranthambhore

‘Machhli’ is a seventeen year old tigress who rules Ranthambhore, a tigress whose majesty is assured as much by the gaze of millions she arrests with the distinctive ‘fish’ mask outlining her eyes.


The legend of Machhli as the world’s most photographed cat with stripes, as she’s regarded, has survived a generation, and there are many who wish it would last another. After all, the tiger’s survival is a cause dear to us all.

Machhli’s popularity is not astonishing for nothingShe is the world’s oldest documented tiger alive. Hundreds of photographers attest to her fame, helped along in no small measure by the picturesque setting against which she has spent a life being captured on film, the deceptive serenity of the lake territory along an Aravalli ridge crowned by the imposing ramparts of the Ranthambhore Fort.

Machhli’s lack of camera shyness has given dozens the thrill of watching a big cat hunt in broad daylight. She is totally oblivious of humans in a jeep.

It’s a rarity that has given Machhli the honor of a ‘lifetime achievement award’ bestowed upon her by Travel Operators for Tigers (TOFT) The tigress now has her territory in Lakarda area of Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve.

Having given her bit to the Ranthambhore tiger reserve, it is now honor time for Machhli, A commemorative postal cover on her is released by Rajasthan CM Mr. Ashok Gehlot and Tourism Minister Bina Kak on Wednesday, September 18, 2013.


The postal department of India will carry the picture of this Ranthambhore National Park’s tigress on its envelope. In a few months, a postal stamp will also be released on Machhli.

When ever you feel  Ranthambhore breaking into a chilling cacophony of langoor shriek and sambar calls. It would sure be the sound of fear And Machhli would be correctly identified!! 

So, wait no more and plan your jungle safari with British colonial style Ranthambhore Kothi and you never know, you may be the lucky one to witness the activities of this legendary eldest big cat of Ranthambhore!

Though the park is great for birding but the restrictions that are placed inside the Ranthambhore National Park, may not appeal to the very serious birders. There are some great birding spots outside the park and here one can walk around, which you cannot do inside the park. In fact, some of the best birding areas are outside the tiger zones on the outskirts of the park.

Cocooned midst the lush green forests and edged with the soothing sight of natural water lake, Ranthambhore Kothi offers a well appointed, never to be forgotten experience, with the exciting bird watching, chance to glimpse the very rare tigers, and other incredible species in complete wild..

Things to do at Ranthambhore National Park

There are many interesting spots for you to see in Ranthambhore National Park.The Ranthambhore National Park is regarded as the most suitable place for wildlife photography in the world. Here you can capture the tiger in its various moods and moments. Besides the Ranthambhore Park, there are places like the Ranthambhore Fort (one of its kind in the entire state of Rajasthan) and the various species of flora and fauna, which are also worth a look.
Some of the important places in and around Ranthambhore National Park are….

Bakuala: National Park Ranthambhore is covered with thick forest over a large part of its area. One of the thickly forested regions is called the Bakaula region. Bakaula consists of dense forest, with many small pools and water holes in clearings in the vegetation. Because of the excellent forest cover and availability of water, the Bakaula region in National Park Ranthambhore has an abundance of wildlife. Tigresses with young cubs are often seen near the water holes in Bakaula, since the dense forest provides cool hides for a tigress and her young.

The thick vegetation also retains moisture in the air and lowers the temperature of this area. Bakaula is one of the coolest regions of National Park Ranthambhore, where many birds can be seen in the trees and small animals like squirrels and monkeys scamper through the forest.

Bakaula is one of the many interesting places to see in National Park Ranthambhore.

Kachida Valley: This valley, which consists of many rocky outcrops and low hills, is located close to the outskirts of the park. A jeep would be the ideal mode of transport when trying to visit this area. This area contains a majority of the Panther population of the park. The panthers avoid venturing into the main jungle to avoid conflicts with tigers, which are known to kill them. This area also has a good population of Sloth bears.

Lakarda Anantpura: These areas located in the North-Western and Northern regions of the park are ideal locations to visit if looking for Sloth Bears. These areas have a lot of ant hills, which are a favourite of the beers. Although very rarely seen themselves, the pugmarks of the Indian striped Hyenas are often seen here. Their numbers are not very large in the park.

Raj Bagh Ruins: These ruins are located between the Padam Talao (lake) and the Raj Bagh Talao. These ancient stone structures like arches, palace outhouses, domes and steps give the area an aura that is not possible to find anywhere else in the world. Especially if you include the jungle surroundings and are one of the lucky few who come across one of the resident tigers. These ruins are what give the Ranthambhore National Park such a unique mixture of a wildlife reserve and a reminder of the past, which together make it one of the most picturesque parks in the entire world.


Ranthambhore Fort: This fort stands majestically atop a hill overlooking the entire park. The walk up, one of the only places this mode of transport is possible, is a very refreshing and exciting one as even the big cats have been spotted up there! The view of the surrounding keeps getting better and better as you go up but the view from the fort itself can only be described as breathtaking. It is advisable to take along a good pair of binoculars and if possible a camera with a very powerful lens when visiting the fort.

The list is long……………
