After a included lunch at the Laxmi Vilas Palace in Bharat, proceed to the railway station for a comfortable two-and-a-half-hour journey on the Shatabdi Express to Ranthambore National Park. Originally a Maharajahs’ hunting preserve, it spans 400 square kilometres of forested hills, valleys, and lakes, forming a unique ecosystem. Ranthambore’s tigers, despite challenges, have thrived, and their numbers have stabilized.

Day 6 – Ranthambore Tiger Safari

Known for tiger sightings, the reserve also boasts 300+ bird species, including impressive eagles, painted storks, and wild peacocks. Residents include sambars, marsh crocodiles, wild boar, sloth bears, leopards, and playful black-faced langur monkeys near the entrance.

After returning to the hotel late morning, you’ll have leisure time around lunch. In the afternoon, head back into the park for another chance to spot elusive tigers.
