The tiger safari in Sariska Tiger Reserve has become costlier after the recent hike. Tourists will now have to shell out more money for the Gypsy safari, starting this month i.e. May, 2017. The forest department has now increased the Gypsy safari fee with a hike of Rs 1,000, with effect from from May 01, 2017. With only 13 to 14 tigers compared to Ranthambore Tiger Reserve’s 60, sighting a big cat has become rare in Sariska.

Sariska was given the status of a tiger reserve and became a part of India’s Project Tiger in 1978. The forest cover of Sariska reserve (1,100 sq km) is larger than Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, which spans over barely 392 sq km along with 60 tigers. Though Sariska lost all its tigers to poaching by 2005, it is now home to 14 big cats after relocation of tigers, distributed over a vast expanse of forest. To add to the woes, the forest department had copied the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve model and introduced three or four designated zones for tourists in Sariska.
