» Ranthambore National Park
Near the township of Sawai Madhopur, in the state of Rajasthan, Ranthambore National Park is an outsanding example of Project Tiger's efforts at tiger conservation in the country.

More than in any other park or sanctuary in India, tigers are easily spotted here in daylight. They can be seen lolling around lazily in the sun or feverishly hunting down sambar around the lakes. Therefore, Ranthambore is probably the ideal park for wildlife photograpy an attracts professional wildlife photographers from all over the world.
