Rajasthan Wildlife Tour - 07 Nights / 08 Days
Jaipur -Ranthambore National Park – Bharatpur
Details of this tour
Experience Rajasthan Wildlife
Located in the northern plains of India, the “Land of Rajas” Rajasthan is a realm of cultural charm, historical mystique, festivity, and ancient mystique.
It is a state that teems with gorgeous palaces, majestic Havelis (medieval mansions), towering forts, serene lakes, and never-ending desert sand dunes.
Millions flock to Rajasthan every year to enjoy these attractions.
But Rajasthan also has one more exhilarating trick up its sleeve: the wildlife wonders of Ranthambore and Bharatpur (Keoladeo) National Parks.
While most tourist itineraries typically feature a stopover (one or two days) at the Ranthambore National Park (famed for its Tiger Safaris), our Rajasthan Wildlife Tour is designed primarily for nature and wildlife lovers.
The former hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur, Ranthambore sprawls over 400 sq. km in Sawai Madhopur and is home to the Royal Bengal tigers, sloth bears, marsh crocodiles, Caracals, jungle cats, Indian Flying Foxes, Sambar and Chital deer.
The famous former duck-shooting site of the Maharaja, and now the Bharatpur National Park (also known as Keoladeo Ghana), on the other hand, is considered one of India’s best birdwatching destinations.
Home to 375 species of exotic resident and migratory birds, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, and is a haven for ornithologists and researchers.
Resplendent Travel’s week-long wildlife-focused tour introduces you to an exciting world of flora and fauna.
Itinerary at a Glance
Jaipur | Arrival and Start of Tour
Your tour will begin in the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur — “Paris of India.”
On arrival at the airport, you will be received by the staff of Resplendent Travel and transported to your accommodation.
Jaipur | Royal Charm of “Paris of India”
Jaipur is known as the “Paris of India” due to its regal palaces, palatial Havelis (medieval castle-like mansions), and royal grandeur of the former Kingdom of Jaipur.
Many of its historical landmarks are painted in the hue of pink color (the color of hospitality and love in Rajasthan)—which has also earned it the epithet “Pink City”.
Jaipur is charm, style, and romance personified.
There is no dearth of cultural and historical attractions to immerse yourself in in Jaipur.
The Grand City Palace (residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur), the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), the Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory, the forts of Amber and Nahargarh, and so much more.
Ranthambore National Park | Tiger Safaris
Tigers are the most elusive predators. Masters of disguise and camouflage, they are not easy to spot in the wild.
You could go on multiple tiger safaris in other parts of India and not spot a tiger in the wild.
But not the Ranthambore. It is considered one of the top tiger-spotting destinations in all of India. Its safaris are a great hit with wildlife junkies.
On day 3, after arrival (3.5 hours drive) and tea, you’ll go on an afternoon safari.
The next day you’ll go on both the morning and afternoon safaris.
Bharatpur | Birdwatching Paradise
On day 5, you will arrive in Bharatpur in the afternoon (4.5 hours drive).
The next morning you’ll go on a bird-watching trip to the Bird Sanctuary.
The Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary was originally established 250 years ago by the Maharaja of Jaipur as a duck shooting site. Sprawling over 29 sq m (11.2 sq m.), it is home to 375 species of birds (160 of which are migratory). Some of its most famous species include the Cattle Egret, Painted Stork, Greater Spotted Eagle, and the Indian Saras Crane—the tallest flying bird in the world.
UNESCO recognized it as a World Heritage Site in 1982. Aside from the abode of India’s most exotic avian creatures, Bharatpur is also home to the Indian Rock Python, Spotted Deer and several other wildlife species.
The best time to visit is from October to March.
