Wildlife photo safaris with India's leading photography guide

Ranthambhore post monsoons…

A forest rejuvenated post the monsoon showers is full of mysteries that unfold vehicles start patrolling the park after the 3 months rain break which makes Indian forests inaccessible. The first week post the park opening for a new season is exciting and thrilling not because of the wildlife that you may or may not see (because of the dense vegetation) but the mysticism that surround the woods.

The first 8 days of post monsoon action in Ranthambhore had a lot in store for me and my fellow photographers as we were the first ones to document 12 Sightings on 7 individual tigers, leopard, sloth bear. October 1st started with a bang with T19 – the reigning lady of the lakes – and T28 (Star Male) making appearances through the green gold of Ranthambhore. A leopard along with the mom-son duo of Noor (T39) and Sultan wrapped up the opening day. For the next few days the mother and son made a sambhar kill right on the fort road. Heavy rains though disrupted the sightings in between but not the spirits of photographers, as they still were able to capture some amazing landscapes. After a 3 day lull period, day 7 ended with 3 males in 1 drive in the form of T28, T19 male cub and T24.

Ever promising Ranthambhore is geared up for a thrilling season this year.

Presenting a photo round up for the first week of Ranthambhore for 2013-2014

    great information and sharing. The other partially of the reserve lies to the southwest of the river Banas, approximately completely in the Sawai Madhopur district. These mostly include the Ranthambhore National Park, Sawai Madhopur Sanctuary and the Sawai Man Singh Sanctuary and the Kuwalji closed area. Roughly all these forests were a part of the Jaipur state before independence. The approach to this part of the Reserve is from side to side the town of Sawai Madhopur, which is also on the main Delhi – Mumbai rail route at a distance of 362 km from Delhi.
