Ranthambore Canter Safari
Canter safari is the best way to observe wildlife within Ranthambore National Park. Jeeps with groups of tourists, accompanied by a trained guide are allowed into the park at fixed times during the morning and evening. The jeeps have to follow a fixed route and leave the park by the end of the appointed time. At a given time not more 4 jeeps can travel on a particular route and more then 16 vehicles are not allowed into the park. Apart from jeeps, open vans called canters, which can carry up to 16 people, are also used to carry large groups of people into the park.
The open grasslands, forested areas and ruins of monuments within Ranthambore National park provide many opportunities for wildlife viewing while on a jeep safari of National Park Ranthambore. Tigers can be seen hunting deer, their primary prey, on the open grassy regions. A glimpse of a magnificent Royal Bengal Tiger is a sight that cannot be forgotten.
Many renowned wildlife experts and wildlife photographers have observed and photographed the tigers of Ranthambore, from jeeps within the park. Jeep safaris can also be arranged for an individual photographer or tourist, to see the tigers in their natural habitat. Since the jeeps follow fixed routes, the animals are not unduly disturbed.
