Cheeky monkeys, but no tiger…

16 April 2016

As part of our travels in 2012, before getting to Cayman, we visited Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, in the hope of seeing tigers (it was billed as a tiger safari and 60 square miles is a tiger sanctuary).  Sadly, we didn’t get to see any of these beautiful creatures in the wild.  Admittedly it is a large national park, and we only took two “safaris” but I have to wonder whether the poaching has left the park bereft of any tigers.  Nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised by the array of antelope and we were entertained by playful monkeys.  The national park is set around the Ranthambore Fort, so you see monkeys cavorting on cannons. I would recommend a morning tour, which can be atmospheric with the mist across the valley (we went in a January, and it was very cold so this is likely not a year round phenomenon!).  We also saw a bear in the distance, and there are reported to be leopards (always hard to see), crocodiles and “Indian False Vampires” so this may appeal to all sorts!
