In this article I will explain about Ranthambore Safari Zones (Gates), how to select one, how to book one, what factors are critical in choosing the right one, also about how to choose and book the right hassle-free Ranthambore Packages, while related blogs below will explain how to go about for further information.

Ranthambore Safari Zones – What, How many and How to pick the right one

Ranthambore Tiger Reserve & National Park is a national park, wildlife sanctuary & a tiger reserve in the Sawai Madhopur District of the state of Rajasthan, around 160 kms from Jaipur, 375 kms from Delhi, & approx. 7 kms from Sawai Madhopur Railway Station.

There are 10 safari gates/zones all across park and are separated by approx. 20kms to 80 kms between the gates. You could hire a gypsy from all of these gates or you could get into a canter (22-seater mini-bus) (not all gates has canter facility) but you need an advance online reservation for the same.

Which Ranthambore Safari Zones are good?

All are good but what matters is for what reason are you visiting Ranthambore. If its for tigers (as most do), then always pick Ranthambore Safari Zones – Zone 1 to Zone 6 (you need to book 100 to 20 days ahead else they get sold out in no time) but if you are there to just enjoy the forest or birding, Ranthambore Safari Zones Zone 7 to Zone 10 are as good.

Also what to choose within Zone 1 to Zone 6 is also tricky and all depends on tiger movements that day and that you can’t predict some 100 days early but you can make some guesses. Download WildTrails India app and keep an eye on Sightings and you can make an educated guess for sure (or drop an email to ranthambore@wildtrails.in and we will help)

Words of Caution:  You can do it on your own but it’s very painful and confusing process to book the safari online and also it is one the most popular tiger reserves and hence you need to book way too early. Also what resorts are attached to what gates are also confusing. Also what gate to pick for the dates you choose is also very crucial. If you are doing it for the first time, better for experts to do it else everything goes for a mess.  Anyways we use technology, algorithms, data crunching and lot more based on sightings and tiger movements to increase your chances of sighting a tiger.

Ranthambore Safari Zones Gates Locations:

Gates for Zone 1 to 5 are same entry and for Zone 6 is just a few Kms from the entry gate of Zone 1 to Zone 5 but Zone 7 to Zone are pretty far from the [40 to 70 kms] entry point. So be careful on where you book the Safari (Game drive) and where you book your resort. The Exact geo locations of all these gates/zones are mentioned in the WildTrails India App.

Ranthambore Packages – how to select one?

Of all the tiger reserves in India, Ranthambore is one of the most popular one and also most sought after too. Below are some of the steps you could follow to pick the right package.

Step 1 : Book Early – can’t say enough. Earlier the better as you get the best zones else you will end up going to zones where there are no tigers or no sightings are happening

Step 2: Checkout how the park is doing w.r.t sightings. Do download our app and checkout the sightings and the TSI (Tiger Sighting Index ™) for the Park and for each of the gate and insist on those gates

Step 3: Usually gate1 to gate6 are sought after. Even in that find out what gates are doing good (see Step 2) 

Step 4: Also ask whether it’s exclusive Gypsy or Shared Gypsy or in a Canter (min-bus) before you book

Step 5: Ideally go over the testimonials of the one you offers the packages

Step 6: At the end you need to take a package that gives you that experience you are seeking for and not myriad of issues
