What if I tell you that you’d be deep in the woods of the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve only to be drawn in further by the voices of the jungle? Let me take you on a jungle safari at one of the biggest wildlife sanctuaries in Northern India – the Ranthambore National Park.

Take on a photo journey of the Ranthambore safari in a wildlife reserve that is thick with dry deciduous forests sprawling across an area of 1334 sq. km. The Ranthambore National Park is a tiger reserve dotted with a number of lakes interspersed with breathtaking meadows and grasslands to satiate your quest for tiger sighting.

Come, let's find the elusive tigers lurking in the woods on a spectacular jungle safari at the Ranthambore National Park.

Would you watch creatures of the jungle thriving in their natural habitat or those that are helpless and imprisoned for life at a local zoo? Do you like the chase or would you rather support those who chain and abuse? The choice is yours. If you’re a wildlife enthusiast, a nature photographer or an adventure freak, then a game viewing experience at the Ranthambore National Park is just what you need.

Let the birds lead the way, listen to their calls. You'll know when trouble is near and you're about to spot a predator at the Ranthambore National Park. Here's a Rufous Treepie perched on the wind shield of the safari jeep!

If you’re into wildlife photography or simply love to go on wildlife holidays, then you would definitely know how naturalists and wildlife photographers track animals in the jungle. They look for signs while on the safari – always. Frogs, monkeys and birds often warn their little friends in the jungle when they spot a tiger, leopard or any predator for that matter with a low but fierce alarming call. That’s your cue to look around intently – you never know who is watching you from behind that tree and what’s hiding within that absolutely still thicket. Wildlife photography in India is booming right now. Thanks to the beautiful forests of India that are home to a wide variety of animal species making it the best for both nature photography as well as animal photography.

A sometimes, if you're lucky enough, you'd spot a herd of Chitals (Spotted Deers) doing their thing by a water body at the tiger reserve!

And sometimes, if you’re lucky enough, you’d spot a herd of Chitals (Spotted Deers) drinking out of lakes, running around or bathing at the Ranthambore tiger reserve! And when the universe is extremely generous to you, it’ll send peacocks and peahens out there too (look at the image carefully). Do you see what I see?

Just for your information, these things love to show off. Just look at this beautiful creature! Why wouldn't he show off? If I were a peacock, I'd definitely do it.

And of course, a good set of binoculars and a passion for bird watching lets you enjoy a thrilling jungle excursion experience on your jeep safari at the Ranthambore National Park. With 272 species of the exotic birds like the Flamingos, Gray Hornbills, Flycatchers, and Nightjars, you’re in for an endless chase of feathered creatures here.

Did you know, birds are rarely hunted down by the predators of the Jungle? Don't be shocked if you find them hopping sround crocodiles and tigers like they don't care - because they really don't.

Did you know that birds are almost never hunted down by the predators of the Jungle? Just don’t be shocked if you find them hopping around crocodiles and tigers like they don’t care, because trust me, they really don’t.

Birds aren’t the first choice of predators when it comes down to being eaten in the wild. Wondering why? There are plenty of reasons, one being they are like appetizers to Tigers thanks to the negligent amount of meat on them. Second, they have wings, remember? And third, some bird species actually help these predators in their own birdy ways. Take the Rufous Treepie that was leading the way in the earlier photograph, for instance. It acts like a Tiger’s toothpick and picks out small chunks of meat that are stuck between the Tigers teeth. WHAT? Yes. You’ll find these birds in abundance at the Ranthambore National Park and I really hope that you get a chance to catch them in the act.

Catch a glimpse of the Sambar Deer at the Ranthambore National Park. These timid looking deer are one of the very few deer that sometimes confront quite large predators.

Look out for Golden Jackals in the Ranthambore forests. They’re usually calm, watchful and composed and let out a warning call when they detect the presence of larger carnivores such as wolves and tigers.

And not very far, the star of the show has been spotted - the Royal Bengal Tiger roars in all its glory at a water body in the Ranthambore National Park.

Not too far away, the star of the show has been spotted. Enter, the Royal Bengal Tiger roaring in all its glory at a water body in the Ranthambore National Park.

On a jungle safari, the chances of spotting a Tiger increases around water bodies like ponds, lakes and rivers. The extreme temperatures of Rajasthan can get the best of them and it is very likely to find Tigers lazing in the waters. Having a hard time spotting a Tiger? You know where to go.

Tigers love waters; a not-so very cat-like attitude, eh?
