A Safari to Ranthambhore

My visit to Ranthambhore, the second one in total, was chiefly due to fond memories from my first visit and also so that I could visit the fort this time (although it's another matter altogether that I cancelled out the fort at the last moment to book another safari). 

 Sawai Madhopur Railway Station

I went to Zones 5 and 6 for my safaris. I insisted on booking the safaris online and also insisted on going to the Ranthambhore forest booking centre to collect my Canter Boarding Passes myself. Both the activities were quite an adventure by themselves as while the online booking portal offers limited options to pay online, the drivers of canters and gypsies were at their rowdy best (in the Ranthambhore forest booking office), yelling, breaking queue… Nonetheless, I got the boarding passes without much issues and as I mentioned earlier, had memorable safaris!

Vatika Resort, Sawai Madhopur (the resort where I put up)

To know what were my experiences on the safaris and to know whether I came across any presence of the elusive tiger do read my next post!
