National park tour

If you are a wildlife exploring enthusiast then what could be a better option than visiting a wild life sanctuary. India is home to more than 150 nature preserves spread in the length and breadth of the country. In India wildlife centuries are considered as protected area falls under the category of International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).  It is a place where conservation reliant (endangered) species are kept under the natural habitat. These places got their existence with the enactment of Wildlife protected act in India dated back in 1972.

Lot of people visit wild life sanctuaries just to see the tiger, but do bear in mind; you cannot find them in all the national parks.  They are generally found in the larger parks only. Corbett national park, located in the Uttrakhand is one of the oldest and largest wild life parks of India. In fact, it is so large that it is segregated into five zones. Though, it is not an ideal place to catch the view of tiger, but you can find lot of other animals quite easily. This place is especially known for elephant safaris.  It just takes seven hours drive from the national capital New Delhi to reach here.

Winter is the best time to enjoy this National park tour. This place houses the beautiful made-made wetland that protects Bharatpur from floods. This park is listed among the World Heritage Sites.

Ranthambore national park located in the Indian state of Rajasthan is one of the most beautiful natural reservoirs. Adjoining to Vindhya Plateau and the Aravalli Hills the place is known for rocky plains steep cliffs. The best time to visit the lies between the month of March and June.  These are comparatively hotter months; so many animals come here in search of water.  During this period this wild life park remains much occupied.  This park can be explored anytime from sunrise to sunset.
