Rajasthan Tiger Reserves

1. Sariska Tiger Reserve
Ranthambore Tiger Reserve
Mukundara Hills Tiger Reserve

In addition to the rich history and culture, the “Land of Kings” has also gained a lot of popularity for the ancient and beautiful Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan. Brimming with a glorious tiger population, the three tiger reserves of the state namely, Sariska Tiger Reserve, Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, and Mukundara Hills Tiger Reserve, are aimed at providing the big cats a natural habitat away from human action and conserving their gradually thinning population.

The tiger reserves of Rajasthan state are spread across huge expanses of forested land and house a broad spectrum of animal and plant species. From the big creatures like leopards and panthers to the smaller ones like Hanuman langurs and hares, these reserves provide shelter to a myriad of wildlife species, some of which are even endangered.

Rajasthan’s tiger reserves are known to offer the wildlife enthusiasts the best experience of jungle safari. Usually remaining shut during the rainy season, these tiger reserves are best visited between October and May, when the chances of tiger spotting are higher.

I am so glad to share my thrillophilia reviews of Udaipur Trip.It was a wonderful experience for the day. Driver was quite polite and took us to all the places mentioned in the tour guide. Even the tour organiser was quite helpful in arranging the cab as it was a last minute booking. This trip will be remembered for a long time and will surely recommend it to others (infact already recommended)

It is a great deal. Beautiful place to stay. Owner Mr. Mahaveer is very humble and helpful person. Food was tasty & ample. The provided unlimited mineral water for us as and when required. Camel safari was also good & enjoyable. We enjoyed true Rajasthani folk cultural program at night. It was diwali on that particular day. They had arranged some in-house fireworks. Dark starlit sky, campfire, fireworks, folk music & wines - the whole ambiance was ecstatic. Overall a very good & comfortable stay. Only thing I would like to remind you that the region where the camp is located is named Osiyan. Here, you won't find complete desert like Jaisalmer. It is more like a terrain covered with thorny bush. Sand dunes are limited though the camel will take you to a nearby one. But, it's not a fault of owner. You will get compensated with their warm & humble hospitality.
"Desert camping in Jaisalmer remains highlights of your memories ????\nNice Food, Places, Scenic place..\n"

It includes only Camel ride and no Desert safari by Jeep. I had to pay 1200 more for 2 people for Desert safari by Jeep. The dinner was OKish. Camel ride was very good, on requesting he took us twice with just 50Rs. tip. There is an option to go for ATV ride also there @600 per person for a small round :P . But it was fun overall and I enjoyed it.
