Ranthambore National Park goes on a Break!


With the arrival of the monsoon’s, the Ranthambore National Park, will close down tomorrow for the next 3 months i.e July, August & September. 30 June is the last day for the game-safari, as the park closes down for the monsoon’s and enjoys its break that begins from July and ends in September each year. The Ranthambore National Park is a fantastic wildlife tourist destination in the globe to behold wildlife and Tigers in the dry deciduous wooded area. The Tiger Reserve remains open from October to June and generally all national parks in India remains closed down for next three months i.e. July, August and September due to the rainy season. It is to be noted that this is a partial close down as Zone 6 to Zone 10 are likely to stay open throughout the year, where wildlife enthusiasts can have a fantastic opportunity to explore wildlife amidst the rains. Thou in case of heavy rains in the area, the Forest department has the right to close safari zone’s and cancel safari’s without any prior notice.

With the monsoon’s approaching, comes disappointment for all game-safari lovers. The wildlife safari for the season comes to a close on 30 June, 2016 and is expected to remain closed up-till 30th September 2016. The forest reserves of Rajasthan that are closed during the monsoons include Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, Sariska Tiger Reserve, Keolado National Park, Darrah Sanctuary, Sajjangarh Santuary, Kumbalgarh Sanctuary, Desert national Park as well as Mount Abu Sanctuary. There are various reasons due to which the sanctuaries remain closed for public viewing during this time. One of them being heavy rainfall due to which the tracks lose their shape which may shoot up the chances of accidents. The other factor being, this is the breeding season for most of the animals. Behavioral changes and temperamental changes are common and expected during this time, and so it is best they are left all by themselves in their natural habitat.

Until we visit again, October 1 on-wards!
