Headed To Ranthambore National Park? Here’s Some Good News!
Plan to visit the Ranthambore National Park soon, here’s some great news updates that will thrill all wildlife and nature lovers.
For one, the state forest department is improving visitor safety by installing GPS on all tourist vehicles to the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. The system, which will be operational from the next tourist season, will allow officials to track each vehicle as it moves around the sanctuary.
The department also has plans to tackle the increased demand for safari vehicles (Gypsy). From October 1st, 2016, it will charge a Rs 10,000 Tatkal Fee per Gypsy, per trip, with a maximum of 20 gypsies being available to applicants under this quota. Five Gypsies with a capacity of 7 passengers, including 6 visitors + 1 driver, will be allowed in tourist zones 1 to 5, with permits issued on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis. Permits for a half-day visit will be valid for 6 hours, from sunrise to noon or from noon to sunset, while a Gypsy permit for a full-day visit will be valid from sunrise to sunset.
Jungle enthusiasts can also choose between half-day and full-day safari tours, though they will have to spend more than the current three-hour jungle safari fee. So plan your visit to the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve now, because your chance of spotting the majestic tiger just got better and safer with these updates!
