My 3 day itinerary was as below:

Day 1: Drive from Delhi to Ranthambore: About 280 km: 6.5 hrs

Evening canter shared safari: Zone 5: Sighted a sleeping tiger by the river

Day 2: Morning Canter: Zone 3: Zone 3 & 4 have T-19 and her 2 cubs (the 3rd died when young and no one knows how). Sighted the 22 month old cub of T-19 and followed it for about half an hour. A very unique and mind-numbing experience. You might have sighted a tiger several times in zoos and TC but the experience of sighting a free tiger in its natural habitat is without parallel and cannot be described in words, only experienced.

Ranthambore Fort: The fort is just outside zone 3 and we were left at the foot of the fort from where we climbed up and took a cab back (taxi union fixed price to Tiger Moon: 300 Rs). Cost of guide to the fort: INR 500 but worth it as it is huge and unique fort and takes at least an hour to go around.

Evening canter: Zone 4: No sighting (although the tigers in zone 3 can also be sighted from zone 4). A number of alligators can be viewed at the side of the lake here.

Day 3: Evening Canter: Zone 1: Very large zone. No tiger sighting but a large zone and has interesting topography and flora.

Drive back to Delhi
