Ranthambhore safari changes
From the 15th September the online booking system for Ranthambhore jeep safaris will be open for the entire rest of the season, and right up until September 2019. So all plans to visit Ranthambhore before June should be confirmed without delay.
Previously the jeep bookings opened 90 days in advance of the safari date, so December safaris needed to be reserved and paid for in September. Jeeps in the most popular zones (zones 2/3/4) have normally been fully booked within mere hours of the reservations being opened.
At this moment, it is not known if the full quota of jeeps will be available for advance pre-bookings, or if some seats will be released much later (as in Madhya Pradesh). Possibly, only the small VIP jeep quota will remain to frustrate those with a real wildlife passion, otherwise choose seats in the larger canter vehicles or jeeps in the connected zones (7-10) - don't worry, they are definitely still worth visiting.
We will endeavour to update this post with more information once the new system has gone live.
