Online safari booking: Ranthambore

I have seen many people come to sariska or Ranthambore national parks in order to enjoy wildlife safari.

But when they reach Ranthambore and come to know that the safari can be booked only online.

Most of the tourists who are coming for the first time, have no idea about the SSO ID or SSO login Rajasthan website.

Then they have to pay almost double charges to the agents in these tiger reserves. Why…?? because they don’t have any clue of how to book safari online.

The result is, either they have to pay extra money, or they waste one day without any safari. And when you have everything planned, every single day counts.

And specially during this time of COVID pandemic, if you are planning for Ranthambore. Please make sure that you have booked everything in well advance in order to save your money and time.

I am sure everybody who wants to make a visit over here is afraid of COVID too at some point. So let me tell you one thing, that you can easily visit the national park now. As they are open for all tourists.

The thing you have to adhere are the standard rules followed during COVID which includes social distancing, masks and use of hand sanitiser.

The other thing which is to be noted is the seating capacity of the safari vehicles. It has been reduced to 50% of what it was before. So the rates might vary a little from what is given below.

So while you are booking the safari, you will come to know the actual rates for that time.
