& Canter safari is the best way to observe wildlife within Ranthambore National Park. Jeeps with groups of tourists,
accompanied by a trained guide are allowed into the park at
fixed times during the morning and evening. The jeeps have to
follow a fixed route and leave the park by the end of the
appointed time. At a given time not more 4 jeeps can travel on a
particular route and more then 16 vehicles are not allowed into
the park. Apart from jeeps, open vans called canters, which can
carry up to 16 people, are also used to carry large groups of
people into the park.
The open grasslands, forested areas and ruins of monuments
within Ranthambore National park provide many opportunities for
wildlife viewing while on a jeep safari of National Park

prey, on the open grassy regions. A glimpse of a magnificent
Royal Bengal Tiger is a sight that cannot be forgotten.
Many renowned wildlife experts and wildlife photographers have
observed and photographed the tigers of Ranthambore, from jeeps
within the park. Jeep safaris can also be arranged for an

natural habitat. Since the jeeps follow fixed routes, the
animals are not unduly disturbed.
