This Project Tiger Reserve is where the Aravali and the Vindhyan hill
ranges meet and this confluence is perhaps the reason for the rich
bio-diversity of the Park. The geological formations of Vindhyan
system are characterised by flat tabletops locally known as ‘Dang’ ,
while the Aravallis are characterised by sharp ridges and conical
hilltops. An important geological fault line – the Great Boundary
Fault – lies at the confluence of the Aravali and the Vindhyan systems
– and runs right across Ranthambore National Park. The high demand
from tourists and the growing Tiger population has made the
Authorities add in extra tourist zones. Now the Park has 10 zones
offering 3 different kind of safaris – Normal, Half Day and Full Day

The poor and scanty rainfall this winter has resulted in the lake
around the Jogi Mahal almost drying out and what was once the most
prime real estate of any tiger – now has no tigers in Zone 3, except
the few stray ones going from Zone 2 to 4.

Ranthambore Tiger Reserve is the single largest expanse of dry
deciduous Anogeissus pendula Forest left intact in India. The dry
deciduous habitat of the reserve along with the open grassy meadows
makes it a pleasure to observe the tiger as it walks through the
thorny dry summer habitat of the Reserve – Tiger Tiger burning bright

Between our group we had the following significant sightings:

52 significant sightings
39 Tiger sightings (Including Fateh, the largest Tiger of the Reserve)
3 Leopards
8 Sloth Bears
1 Jungle Cat
And as Uttam says not to forget his Significant Jackal sighting

Attached is the typical way one sees the Tiger walking through the
open thorny meadows of Dhau and Ronjh trying to avoid the masses of
Maruti Gypsies.
