About Ranthambore


The reserve was first established by the Indian government in 1955 as the Sawai Madhopur Gaming Sanctuary.
It was later designated in a group of India's Project Tiger Reserves in 1973.
Ranthambore was designated as a national park in 1980.
Sawai Mansingh Sanctuary and Keladevi Sanctuary were established in the nearby forests in 1984.
The Tiger Reserve was expanded in 1991 to include the adjacent Keladevi Sanctuary in the north and Sawai Mansingh Sanctuary in the south, as well as other forests.
The Ranthambore National Park is famous for its tiger population and is one of the greatest places in India to see these majestic predators in their natural habitat. It is the only reserve in the region where visitors can easily see tigers at any time. This is one of the reasons why tiger tours are so popular in the area
