The jeep safari and the stay was worth our money spent and we wish to go there again as soon as possible. We were a group of 7 people and we had an amazing college reunion here as we all love wildlife and the wide expanse of forests ahead of us.

Ranthambore has some amazing fictional aura attached to it and exploring this place while in a jeep safari was something that got me on toes. Great experience, loved traversing on the winding roads, beautiful thickets and damn the wildlife actually might be a good idea and when you see these wildlife species from close - its is exciting.

This is an awesome experience that can take you up, close and personal with nature and the wildlife. The flora and fauna is just breathtaking, we weren't lucky enough to spot anything big; but who can control nature right?
