Tiger Safari?

Has anyone done a tiger photo safari in Rajasthan? How did you book it? How much did it cost? How likely is it to actually see a tiger? Someone told me a few years ago about how there's a tour group that takes people on elephant back through a tiger sactuary. Is that in Rajasthan?

    Hi, I've done a tiger safari at Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan, and there are no elephant safaris there. Personally, I did not see a tiger, but some people do. You have to go to Jim Corbett National Park Reservation to ride an elephant. However, please read up on the use of elephants for tourism in India (and elsewhere) and decide when you have all the facts whether you want to support this practice. Many people think it is very cruel to the animals.

    I wrote about my tiger safari in Ranthambhore on my blog, here.

      thanks for your thoughtful answer. I will read up on elephant riding. I know elephants are a lot more emotional and intelligent than horses and the more I think about it, trying to tame any animal is about breaking it's will to be free. I'm hoping that the elephants in Jim Corbett park are taken care of by their handlers. I've been to Pinnewela in Sri Lanka (not to ride but to just to see the elephants in the orphanage) and I really enjoyed some of the rapport that the rangers and the elephant handlers had with the elephants. One of the rangers there was very against elephant riding too. I guess I was thinking about it much like horseback riding and was thinking that going on elephant back was better than having to construct roads in the wilderness. Thanks for giving me the info about where the elephant rides are and giving me something to think about · (0 likelikes)

    Ranthambhore National Park is a good wildlife park to sight the elusive tiger however if wish to have the safaris on elephant back than I would recommend Bandhavgarh national park in central India or Corbett National Park. You can get in touch with PAN India Tours tours@panindiatours.com as they deal in wildlife parks and quite renowned agent in India for safari tours.

    Well, there are several places offering tiger safari in Rajasthan. There are several tour packages offering visit to these sanctuaries, parks or reserves. Sariska Tiger Reserve Booking Office is one of those reserves where you can see the tigers live.
