It is quite interesting to note that Ranthambore is located at the meeting point of the Aravali Range and Vindhyas Plateau. Once here, the passengers of the Maharajas Express plunge into the serene aura and tranquil surrounding. Set among the ancient religious structure, Ranthambore National Park is teeming with a thriving biodiversity. It boasts of various fauna species, viz. Nilgai, leopard, sambar, chinkara, sloth bear, etc.

However, it’s the presence of tigers in the park that magnetizes tourists from all over the world. It was in the year 1980 that Ranthambore National Park was declared as a tiger reserve to shield the endangered species of tiger. The amalgamation of Sawai Maan Singh Sanctuary and Kaldevi Sanctuary with Ranthambore National Park made it India’s largest national park.

As you disembark the Maharaja Express and visit Ranthambore, you are sure to be enthralled by the tigers and other fauna species loitering in their natural habitat. And if you are lucky enough, you may even find these wild beasts hunting their prey!
