Ranthambhore National Park - Game Drive Through The Year
December ~ January ~ February
These are the cold months of winter & tiger sightings and game drives in ranthambore are good. Tigers enjoy walking long distance, and there is very little rain, skies are clear & the light in the early mornings and evening is superb. This is the time when crocodiles sunbathe on the banks of the lake to fight the cold. It is also a time that the sambar deer are in full rut and courtship amongst most of the ungulates is at its peak. Warm clothes are a must as it is icy in the mornings in the jeep.
March ~ April ~ May ~ June
As summertime approaches the water holes dry up. There are large concentrations of animals to be seen in the summer. This is also the time when the jungle's flame of the forest flowers in magnificent hues of red and the lotus is in bloom in the lakes. Many migratory birds like the paradise flycatcher and the golden oriole arrive in the park. Crocodiles are exceedingly active because of the hot temperatures. It is also the fruiting season for mangos, tendu etc. The tiger is sluggish and can be found near water. The weather is very hot and dry.
July ~August ~ September
The park remains closed due to the monsoon rains.
October ~ November
This is a beautiful time in the forest as it is still green after the soaking of the monsoon. Sightings of animals and tigers are not so good since they disperse, as there is a lot of water everywhere. It can be hot in the day, but pleasure in the evening. There may be a few showers. It is also a great time to watch birds of prey and the insect life in the Park. If you are lucky you can see snakes roaming around. Remember in October the roads are being repaired ( after the onslaught of the monsoon ) so you may not be able to reach all your destinations.
