Travel Guide
Sawai Madhopur which includes land animals as well as an individual male

Tiger sanctuaries, ancient architecture and spectacular scenery make this city in western India a popular holiday destination.

The city of Sawai Madhopur lies between the Aravali and Vindhya mountain ranges, within a landscape of hills and forests. The area is home to tiger reserves and one of the largest national parks in India. Go on a tiger safari and tour temples, palaces and an ancient defensive stronghold.

See why Sawai Madhopur is also known as Tiger City when you visit Ranthambore National Park. The vast wilderness is known for its tiger populations, but is also home to leopards, bears, crocodiles and many other species of animals. Take one of the 3-hour jeep rides that travel to several zones within the park where tigers can be seen in their natural habitat. Inside the park boundaries, find the Ranthambore Fort, a 10th-century stronghold that sits on top of a hill and covers an area of approximately 1.5 square miles (4 square kilometers). Walk on the huge stone walls and visit the fort’s temples, palaces and cenotaphs.

If you want to see and photograph more tigers during your holiday, visit the tiger sanctuaries of Mansingh and Kailad Devi. Both are close to Ranthambore National Park.

Located just outside of Sawai Madhopur is the Rajiv Gandhi Regional Museum of Natural History. Tour exhibits that explore the relationships between plants and animals and watch a wildlife documentary in the eco theater. See stuffed animals and the museum’s collection of preserved butterflies.

Also worth a visit is Shilpgram Sawai Madhopur, a craft village and ethnographic museum where you can learn about the lifestyles of local tribespeople and see handicraft and artwork being made.

Train travel is one of the simplest ways to get to Sawai Madhopur. The city has its own railway station that connects to major cities such as New Delhi, Jaipur and Kota. The nearest airport is Jaipur International Airport, located 95 miles (153 kilometres) away.

Come to Sawai Madhopur to see its tigers, forests and ancient buildings.

Good to stay but condition not up to the mark
"The hotel is good. They upgraded our stay to Suite. The only grudge is that due to Covid, the condition of resort is not upto the mark. The game room was in tatters and things were missing. The service is excellent and the restaurant is exceptional"
