Safari Zones At Ranthambore National Park

Ranthambore National Park is big enough to be sectored into 10 zones. Zone 1 to zone 6 is considered core zones and zone 7 to zone 10 are considered buffer zones. Head over to know the best zone to experience the best wildlife adventure.

The sightings in the jungle are more of a gamble. Tiger sightings can never be guaranteed. However, you can only improve the chances. We, at WildTrails, are pioneers in scheduling a safari tour based on the sighting index. It is the data of the wildlife received directly from the forest.

The Advantage Of the Sighting Index 

One of the biggest issues in Indian safaris unlike the African counterpart is that there are zones in the safari park and you need to buy a safari ticket very specific to that Zone and sightings are many times good in few zones compared to others and picking the right zone for the right season/time is very tough unless you have the past data. The same is true for various tiger parks too. Some parks have more sightings for a given time frame/season than others and picking the right park for the given/selected dates, past sightings will be of great help.

We at WidlTrails collect such raw sightings data and convert them into meaningful insights that will help the traveler to plan better in picking the right tiger park as well as the right zone. We are the only one who does this.

The sighting at a particular Indian National Park can be less guaranteed as no one exactly knows the right places of the big paws. The quench for survival makes them wander all through the jungle. One safari session can, however, be made better with the available sources. We, at WildTrails, take pride in being pioneers for blending the AI along with the data we acquire directly from the jungle known as the sighting index. This boosts the sighting chances up to 90%. The sighting index along with an expert tiger tracker is more than enough for a safari worth remembering.
