Safari Zone in Ranthambore National Park

Safari Zone in Ranthambore National Park

Zones 1 through 10 makes up Ranthambore National Park's 10 safari zones. The park originally only had 5 Zones, but as it gained popularity, the additional 5 Zones were added. Zones 1 through 5 are said to be the greatest for seeing tigers, although Zones 6 through 10 also provide plenty of opportunities. The most significant of them is Zone 2, which is littered with several watering holes and where a variety of wildlife, including leopards, can frequently be seen. The Red Headed Vulture, an endangered bird, can be seen in Zone 6 Kundal, which is distinct from the other zones in terms of both its scenery and the prospects for bird watching.

  • Zone 1: the zone's entrance via Singh Dwar. T-39 and T-57 are located in this zone, which is more of a buffer zone. Due to Noor (T-39) and her three cubs' return, as well as the numerous sightings that were recorded at the close of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, this area has gained a lot of popularity. The following locations in this area also offer a chance to see a large cat: Tuti ka Nalla, Amreshwar Dang, Sultanpur, Peela Pani, and Gada Dub.

 

  • Zone 2: The most sightings are reported from this zone, which is one of the most significant zones. Its presence of watering holes and cats in zones T19, T22, T72, T57, T28, T60, and T39. There have been sightings at the following significant locations: Jogi Mahal, Phuta Kot, Phuta Bandha, Lahpur Tiraha, and Nal Ghati. This area has also been the site of numerous leopard sightings.

 

  • Zone 3: High Point, Raj Bagh, Mandook, Jogi Mahal, and Padam Talab. are the main locations where sightings have been reported. One vantage point where you may expect to watch some big cat action from T-19 and T-28 in this zone is Padam Talab.

 

  • Zone 4: This zone is full of hiding places for frightened cats, and Machli, the most well-known tigress in Ranthambore, formerly called it home. The following cats can be spotted in this area after this one: T-28, T-64, T-19, T-75, T-41, and T-25. There have been sightings at the following significant locations: Singh Dwar, Malik Talab, Lakkad Da, Adidaant, Lambi, Tamakhan, and berda.

 

  • Zone 5: There are a few regular sites for sightings at the entry to this zone, which is identical to zone 4. Singhdwar, Anatpur, Jokha, Dhakda, Kachida, Baghda, and Bakola are the points. The following big cats have been seen in this area: T-25, T-28, T-17, T-74, and T-75. Zones 6 through 10 were eventually added to the sanctuary, and entry to them is located at the exact opposite end from zones 1 through 5. Gypsies and canters pass through the old city to get to these areas.

 

  • Zone 6 (Kundal):  shares boundaries with zone 1, and there is a good likelihood that T-39 (Noor) and her pups will be seen here as well. This zone's landscape is very different from zones 1 through 5, with more open meadows and massive mountains as a backdrop. You get the chance to see both birds and the Indian Gazelle. (Along with the threatened Red-headed Vultures).

    There have been tiger sightings in this area in the following locations: Kala Pani, Saran Ka Pattha, KhaliKi Baori, Khabli,    and Soleshwar.T-34, T-39, T-57, and T-8 are the other Tigers visible in this picture. Livestock does wander in this area because it is adjacent to a settlement, and Kumbha (T-34) has reportedly killed and eaten cattle in the past.

 

  • Zone 7: In comparison to the fewer zones, this one has fewer points, however big cats have been seen in Chidikho, Jamoda, Kushalipura, and Rajbagh Naka. In this area, T-8 and T-34 have been seen.

 

  • Zone 8: The tigers seen here are identical to those in zone 7. (T-8 and T-34). They were seen in the following locations: Balas, Kherai, Kali, Neemli Dang, Bhat, and Mahakho.

 

  • Zone 9: This zone is situated on the banks of the Chakal River and is around 45 minutes away from the Tiger Reserve. T-42 (Fateh), an aggressive male who is known to chase the vehicles of the forest service and has also been seen on trap cams murdering a sloth bear, resides here. In addition to T-42, T-59 is also visible. Aquatic birds, sloth bears, and caracals live in this area as well.

  • Zone 10: Along with birds, tigers can be seen in this zone near Aantri, Kushalipura, Bodal, Halonda, and Banskhori. Tigers T-13, T-42, and T-43 have been observed in this area.
