In the royal forest of Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, each tiger comes in the form of a special character with his personality. At present, with the decreasing number of tigers in the world, they know very well about their stardom, and are constantly attracted to visitors coming to Ranthambore National Park.
To attract thousands of visitors in the heat of summer, Ranthambore tiger shows and pose for the camera. For wildlife photographers, tigers are the real hero here – the undisputed king of the National Park is spread over 1,113 square kilometers.
The Great Indian Safari Ride, organized by Columbia Sportswear, unveils this unique universe of tigers. The Colombia gear that uses Omni Vic and Shadow technology, gave thanks to everyone on dry and surprisingly cold whenever the surrounding area was in the grip of severe heat waves and the announcement of the Jungle safari ride started the jungle happiness.
It was about 5 o’clock, when Krishna aka T19 came out of the water hole, seeing nine lucky people from different areas of life, after waiting for half-an-hour, saw her movement with a rock of 50 meters high. We were especially fortunate because in the two safaris we had seen five tigers – Includes the powerful male tiger Kumbha (T-34) and the famous male Tiger Ustad (T-24), female tigress Arrowhead (T-84) , Lake of lady Krishna ( T-19). Later, on the charge of attacking humans, Male tiger USTAD (T-14) has been shifted to Sajjangarh Biological Park, Udaipur by the forest department. The royal lady Krishna (T-19) is the daughter of world famous tigress Machli aka T-16 (Queen of the Lake) of Ranthambore. Tigress Machli (T16) was the longest surviving Tigress in Ranthambore.
For wildlife enthusiasts, Ranthambhore National Park is an ideal place. A trip to Jungle Safari in Ranthambore with an expert naturalist gives you a great experience. Ranthambore is the best place in the wildlife destination in Rajasthan.
Brainstorming legends – How to drive out her siblings from that area to make her empire in the Ranthambore lakes? Why Ustad was imprisoned and taken away from his first love Noor (T-39), which ended a love story? Their young romance gave their first Cub Sultan (T-72) to Ranthambore, which became another gem in the Ranthambore crown. After the shifting of the Tiger T-24, the entry of superb male tiger T-57 in the life of the mourning Noor (T39), and the fight between the famous Tigress Machli and 14 feet long crocodile – stories born in this world of Ranthambore are never surprising.
To tell stories of exploration of Ranthambore, we were on the safari of the evening, when Krishna (T19) went out of ‘Lambi Ki Nala’, it is famous water canal in Ranthambore which was covered by Jamun trees (Syzygium cumini). She sat in a grassy field with a brown canopy background in Ranthambore. She licked her waist with a tongue and brushed her back and gave some great poses before relaxing.
As soon as the nature guide was expected, her cubs moved in another half hour. The cubs came to her mother secretly, her mother was unaware of this thing, the cubs came in a sudden move and jumped to surprise her mother, she showed her mother how well she learned. Our Safari guide said that Krishna’s cubs are very naughty and funny. Her mother was probably not in the mood to play with the cubs, then her cubs run for a little while and walk a little slow and wait for join with her brother. Although his serious brother passes through the distance, when this happened, at a little distance, a pair of bulbul was trying keep away a mongoose who was trying to steal their eggs.
While returning from the forest safari in Ranthambore we saw the Tigress Arrowhead marking her territory. Based on all possible attempts to get anything, Arrowhead pursued a deer, which came out of a pit near the safari track. But she failed to hunt and hoped that hours later would make another attempt. And this way we saw how a tiger fails to do some hunting which they often do in the best way.
According to the weather, the forest of Ranthambore changes in four colours. In autumn, the colour of nature in Ranthambore becomes from greenish to yellowish, while the forest of Ranthambore becomes brown in summer season. The forest of Ranthambore is typical dry deciduous terrain, surrounded by the Aravali mountain range. Wildlife is visible and audible due to the abundant Dhonk trees (Anogeissus pendula) in Ranthambore.
During the jungle safari we saw the monitor lizard climbing on the tree, maybe it was looking for eggs of birds, See the marsh crocodiles in the lake, the same one Black Naped Flameback woodpecker sipping from a lake, actually it was a rare scene in Ranthambore. This kind of wildlife trip will always keep Ranthambore memories fresh. Personally, I believe in luck and fortunately I was fortunate to find a wildlife place. This jungle safari, undoubtedly, took my fate to a different level.
Truly this amazing trip of Ranthambore Jungle Safari brought me closer to the tiger. I saw Kumbha (T34) only one meter distance from me. It became a memorable moment of my life connected with wild life. We were in the morning safari shift in Zone 6 of Ranthambore National Park. We saw the male tiger Kumbha nearby the water hole. We were following him, after coming in contact with Kumbha, around there, the herds of deer gave a warning call and then Kumbha went towards the gate of the old fort.
Still young tiger Kumbha has been mating with other tigress in other terrain of Ranthambore. His area is now in Zone 6 of Ranthambore and it is the father of the Tigress T-8 cubs in Zone 6, Ranthambore.
For millions of followers around the world, these glories are very personalized characters. For me, they are due to life time and their protection in a forest which once was the royal hunting ground. There is a way to prove that we are some good.
