Full-day/half-day safari option is now being offered at Ranthambore Tiger Reserve to visitors apart from regular day visit permits in 2020 as well. Under this scheme maximum of 5 jeeps are permitted to stay inside the forest from sunrise to sunset & are provided zone-free access across the entire park, of course, it does come at a cost.
Half-day Safari at Ranthambore
Visitors would now have the option to spend more time in the forest than on regular 3.30 hours shifts by booking a half-day safari. Half-day permits would be issued for 2 slots- sunrise to noon & 12 noon to sunrise for a maximum of 6 hours each.
Advantages of Full day
More time– More time in the park simply means more time to track tigers and other wildlife. We all know the importance of this extra time -no need to leave an interesting subject just because time is getting over for a normal safari. These extra minutes or hours become important because a lot of times animal movement happens early morning & late evening.
Better sighting opportunities- With additional time & zone-free access one has more sighting opportunities as compared to a regular safari. For all you know your jeep could be the only jeep at that spot.
No route restrictions-In a normal safari one has to travel on a preassigned route. At times when you are sure about a potential sighting on a given route you might not be able to secure the route, frustrating at times for sure. It is to be noted that one has access to areas open for tourism only.
No zone restriction– zone restrictions do not apply restriction is not applicable to visitors on full-day permits. No need to change the zone basis a good sighting in a previous safari, on a full-day/half-day tour you can move between zones. This means ultimate freedom & flexibility in tracking wildlife.
Hassle-free- In a normal safari at most of the reserves you get a different guide & driver each time and it is sometimes difficult to have a similar safari experience on all safaris. In the case of full-day safaris, you have the same driver & naturalist accompanying you on all safaris. This definitely is a huge advantage-they know your preferences and have knowledge of your equipment and images made so far which helps in planning safaris and sightings.
