Online Safari Booking In Ranthambore

Welcome to the safari booking service for Ranthambore National Park. Visitors can make online booking of the seats in Jeep safari or Canter safari by using the online booking service provided here. All the procedures of Safari and Canter booking in the Ranthambore national park are fully managed by the forest officials of the Rajasthan forest department. The Ranthambore tiger reserve area is divided into the 10 zones or routes, and the safari tour is allotted for all the zones. However, the zones are allotted randomly to the Jeep or Canter by the forest officials before the entry. There is no provision of making your own choice of zones and visitors are not allowed to change the allotted route either.

Therefore, please note that the choosing the safari zone, safari driver or naturalist guide is not in our hands. All these are solely decided by the forest officials on the random basis managed by the automated computerized system to make sure the distribution of safari vehicles is equal in every zone. According to the current policy, the 20 jeeps of 6 seaters and 20 Canter of 20 seaters are allowed to enter in the park in one shift. At the Ranthambore national park, the safari tour is allowed in two shifts; morning shift and afternoon shift. You have the choice to choose your safari shift time. The booking is done on the first come, first served basis and you must have to pay the full fee in advance for safari booking. The vehicle is allotted on the day of the safari and the fee for a confirm seat is non-refundable.
