Travel Tips for Ranthambhore


What to Carry While Visiting Ranthambhore?

The best part about visiting Ranthambhore is that even though it offers a plethora of varied activities for guests to enjoy – from quiet dinners to safaris and hot air ballooning to temple hopping, you don’t need to worry about carrying an abundance of things to change into for different activities. Basic articles and comfortable, easily washable clothes work well for every type of pursuit for your Ranthambhore rendezvous.

Key items required to explore this paradise include –

  • Winter wear: Winter means bitter winds and low temperatures with light showers. Plentiful warm clothing – jackets, gloves, mufflers, thermal inners and monkey-caps is essential. This climate lasts from November-February and its best to carry an extra jacket to layer up when temperatures drop further.
  • Summer wear: March-June experiences weather contrary to the wintry days and nights. Scorching heat necessitates soft, loose cotton clothing. However, a jacket in arm is always a good thing for early morning rides, when it can get a little cold.
  • Sunscreen: Come summer or winter, a good quality sunscreen is required to protect your skin from the blistering sun.
  • Sunglasses: Sunglasses are essential to shelter your eyes from the sun and dust.
  • Wide-brimmed hats: To keep your head cool and shield your forehead from the sun as well as elements of nature, hats are a must in both seasons.
  • Mosquito repellent: Though Ranthambhore isn’t a hot breeding ground for mosquitoes, safeguarding yourself with repellent is a wise choice.
  • A diary: To list the animals you’ve encountered or pen down your experiences in the natural environ, carrying a diary is a must.
  • Binoculars: A pair of binoculars will help you get a clearer look at the elusive fauna.
  • Water Bottles: Staying hydrated during the course of your safari is essential and to do so, you must carry water bottles to quench your thirst in the long sunny drives.
  • Camera’s: Along with camera’s one must carry stands, extra batteries, memory cards and films. Though they are locally available at times, you don’t want your wildlife photo sessions to halt due to inadequate storage.

Walking shoes: There’s only one way to pamper your feet other than take a foot massage at our fabulous spa – and that is to keep them shielded in comfortable shoes recommended for walking.
