Top 4 National Parks in Rajasthan - Environs where you can enjoy wildlife first-hand in Rajasthan

Often called the land of the kings, India's desert state Rajasthan boasts natural terrains that are inhabited by many forms of wildlife. Below discussed are four such habitats that are worth knowing.

1

Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary

The internationally recognised bird sanctuary fascinates many a bird lover. Located a few miles away from Bharatpur and close to many Jaipur Heritage Hotels, Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary claims an expanse of 29 sq. Km. Due to the large numbers of migratory birds that flock together in the sanctuary, the Forest Department has constructed many artificial wetlands. The number of bird spices that inhabit the park amounts to roughly 350 and among the most spotted are: Indian spotted eagle, black-necked bills, black bitten, large-tailed darters and sarus cranes.

Ranthambore National Park

Known as one of the leading national parks nature lovers visit, Ranthambore National Park takes up a land space of 392 sq. Km. The park is flanked by two rivers, namely Chambal and Banas which only makes it more fascinating to the visitors. The terrain is the result of the merger that took place between Sawai Man Singh Sanctuary and Kela Devi Sanctuary in order to form a natural habitat for tigers. Visiting the sanctuary will certainly be an exciting thing to do if you love the great outdoors.

Sariska National Park

This is another reserve in Rajasthan that is meant for tigers. First, it was established a wildlife sanctuary in 1955, but later in 1978, it was declared to be a tiger reserve. There was a time when the Royal Tigers of Bengal had started to disappear to the point where it was difficult to spot one however much you tried. In spite of that, now – thanks to the natural habitat and the efforts of the government – you can spot tigers at Sariska National Park pretty easily. In addition to the primary inhabitants, you can see rhesus monkeys that inhabit the treetops, leopards that roam around stealthily, another close relation of tigers the jungle cats, wild boars as well as bird variants such as bush quail, sand grouse, partridge, tree pie and backed woodpecker. Located at a close proximity to accommodation options the likes of Alila Fort Bishangarh, visiting the park during your vacation will certainly add more value to your trip.

Desert Natural Sanctuary

Spanning over a land area of 3162 sq. Km, Desert Natural Sanctuary, is found close to Jaisalmer city. The name of the park derives from the fact that the park mainly consists of the desert region of Rajasthan. Most of the land contains sand dunes. Chinkara, desert cat, desert fox, wolf and Bengal fox can be easily spotted all over the park. The perfect juxtaposition of desert sand and the forest area provide a home to many dryland habitats as well as to bird species like great Indian bustards that face the danger of extinction. In addition, you can sight falcons, steppe eagles, demoiselle crane and houbara bustard.
