Ranthambore and Sariska Wildlife Parks to remain closed for Monsoon.


With the monsoon’s, comes disappointment for all game-safari lovers. The wildlife safari for the season usually comes to a close. 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.  While the Forest Authorities had recently announced that the Wildlife reserves and parks will remain open during the Monsoons, but after NTCA’s objection, the Rajasthan Forest Department has taken its previous orders back and decided to close the reserves.

All the three tiger reserves of Rajasthan — Ranthambhore, Sariska and Mukandara — will be closed this year during monsoon. According to the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), the Rajasthan Forest Department has dropped its orders to keep the parks open during monsoon keeping in mind various reasons. However ZONE 1-5 at the Ranthambhore National Park will remain closed during the monsoon season i.e from 01 July up-to 30 September 2017, Zone 6-10 will remain open for safaris. Ranthambhore National Park will re-open with all 10 Zones from 1st October 2017 and all tourist activities will then commence as usual.
