I own and run a small lodge on the outskirts of the Ranthambhore tiger reserve in India. I used to be a civil engineer working in Delhi but that was a long time ago. In 1998, my wife and I quit the rat race and shifted to Ranthambhore for good. Why Ranthambhore ? Mainly to stay close to tigers. Wild ones. Tiger family in Ranthambore We now make less money than we did before but there are absolutely no regrets. Life here is good. It is slow, laid back but good. We meet great people, take nice pictures, travel a lot and generally have a lot of fun doing what we are doing. Lets face it I dont know many people who go to the forest early in the morning, see a lot of wildlife - including tigers and come back home for breakfast. Where is Ranthambhore? Ranthambhore (often misspelled ar Ranthambore) is a Tiger Reserve in the northwest Indian state of Rajasthan. map showing location of Ranthambore As you can see, Ranthambhore is very conveniently located in Northwestern India, close to the Capital city of New Delhi. The nearest major airport is Jaipur, about three hours drive. The closest rail head is at Sawai Madhopur, about 15 minutes drive from Ranthambhore.

Aditya and Poonam are really passionate people and are doing a tremedous job , they are so passionate that people like me from the Rat Race of Delhi have been motivated to joinup and do something for the Tigers and the Wild. A part of the Earth that we call ours and should leave a heritage for our children.
The work and the orientation for anyone to understand the wild and nature given by Aditya is wonderful and a never miss.

GOOD LUCK and may the numbers grow

Ranthambore Tiger Reserve is one of the largest national parks in India. It is located in Sawai Madhopur district of southeastern Rajasthan. Ranthambhore was recognized as the Sawai Madhopur Game Sanctuary in 1955 by the Government of India, and was confirmed one of the Project Tiger reserves in 1973. Ranthambore became a national park in 1980. In 1984, the neighboring forests were confirmed the Sawai Man Singh Sanctuary and Keladevi Sanctuary, and in 1991 the tiger reserve was inflamed to include the Sawai Man Singh and Keladevi sanctuaries. I am very happy to see that your sharing is related to the tiger reserve.
