Tiger spotting in India

The tail end of the dry season in India, May is the last chance to see a Bengal tiger before the rainy season arrives and the big cats take cover!

The most likely time to see a tiger in India

May signals the tail end of the dry season in India.

And it’s at this time of year you’re most likely to spot a tiger in a protected national park.

To boost your chances of seeing first-hand these noble, protected creatures in a wild environment, Saga’s Golden Triangle and Tiger Trail tour includes among its many thrills a visit to Ranthambore National Park.

Ranthambore National Park

This park was the first tiger reserve in the state of Rajasthan, and it continues to perform sterling conservation work to sustain and build the population of tigers and other species.

You can take a safari through Ranthambore National Park in an open-topped bus.

On your tour of the park, keep your eyes peeled for the Asiatic deer known as the sambar, plus myriad birdlife, crocodiles and the top prize spots of all: tigers.
