If you thought safaris were only for Africa, think again. In fact, India is an extraordinary place to view wildlife – especially tigers.
To see tigers in their natural jungle habitat, head to Ranthambore National Park in the northern state of Rajasthan. This is one of the best locations in the world for a tiger safari. Even during the daytime, tigers can easily be spotted here.
The area was formerly a royal hunting ground for the maharajas of Jaipur, but nowadays Ranthambore is a protected wildlife sanctuary.
In addition to tigers, many other animals can be found here, such as leopards, wild boar, spotted deer, and painted storks. Speaking of storks, birdwatchers will enjoy the nearly 300 different bird species that call the park home.
Besides wildlife, Ranthambore also has several beautiful lake palaces, as well as old ruins and a 1,000-year-old fort.
