Corbett & Ranthambore, India
India offers a variety of habitat for wildlife ranging from Corbett National Park, set against the backdrop of the Indian Himalayas, to Ranthambore in Rajasthan, famous for regular sightings of tiger.
Jim Corbett National Park is located in the northern part of the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is named in honour of the legendary hunter turned naturalist, author and photographer, Jim Corbett, who had helped in demarcating the boundaries and setting up the park.
Once a popular hunting ground of the British, this 201 square mile park is today the home to a variety of flora and fauna. It is famous for its population of Royal Bengal Tigers, leopards and Asian elephants. Corbett National Park is India's first national park and is the first sanctuary to come under Project Tiger.
Ranthambore National Park was created from the former hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur. It is dotted with structures that remind you of bygone eras. A huge fort, after which the park is named, towers over the park on a hill. There are many other ruins scattered throughout the jungle, which give it a unique, wonderful and mixed flavour of nature, history and wildlife.
This National park is a wildlife enthusiast and photographer's dream. The park is open from October to June and is famous for the exciting and frequent tiger sightings. Tigers at Ranthambore have been known to even hunt in full view of human visitors.
