Ranthambhore is the destination for the experience of wild tigers with higher probability. After two separate visits with more than 8 safari, we finally met him up close. There is no guarantee of a close encounter but chances are high that a distant glance may be waiting for you.
Comparison to Corbett? Yes the low lands of Himalaya are real jungles with a great feeling of safari while in Ranthambhore it is more commercial tiger watching which is our take. Even though sightings are rare in Corbett, the aura of the early morning safari in Dhikala is unmatched.
To see a tiger go to Ranthambhore and to enjoy the safari go to Corbett.
