Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...

Each national park has a fixed number of cars going in. Whether the cars get used or not, could depend on the day of the week. Since Ranthambore is well connected to cultural hotspots in India like Jaipur, Agra and New Delhi, it could get a little crowded than usual.
