Located on the intersection of Aravalli and Vindhyas, Ranthambore National Park is approximately 11 km from Sawai Madhopur. Once a princely nature reserve, Ranthambore is the best place to see the Tigers. The geography of the park extends from the steep and gentle slopes of the Vindhyas to the sharp, conical hills of the Aravalli. By having a unique topography, the jungle is replete with meadows, plateaus, pastures in gorges and thriving foliage around canals.

Ranthambore National Park, one of the largest and most popular national parks in North India, is the perfect synonym for wildlife tourism in Rajasthan. The Park is known for the largest tiger populations in India. The sanctuary has the Chambal River to the south and the Banas River to the north bordering it. Another dominant characteristic of the Tiger Reserve is the Fort Ranthambore, dating back to the 10th century. There are three large lakes in the sanctuary, Padam Talab (Lake), Malik Talab and Raj Bagh.

The park is home to the dry deciduous forest that makes the sight of tiger more common. The dry deciduous forests were once a part of the magnificent jungles of Central India. The Ranthambore Park is situated on the edge of a plateau and is bounded on the north by the Banas River and on the south by the Chambal River. There are many historical monuments and waterbodies. The Ranthambhore Fort & Jogi Mahal are prominent monuments. Ranthambore is also the site for one of the largest banyan trees in India.

Besides tigers, the major wild animals include leopard, blue bull, wild boar, sambar, hyena, bear and gazelle. It is also home to the wide variety of trees, plants, birds and reptiles. The reserve also has the thriving bird population with over 270 different species of birds.
