The season for safari in wildlife sanctuary will be closing on 30th June 2016 and is expected to remain closed till 30th September 2016. The safaris and reserves of Rajasthan include Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, Sariska Tiger Reserve, Keolado National Park, Darrah Sanctuary, Sajjangarh Santuary, Kumbalgarh Sanctuary, Desert national Park, Mount Abu Sanctuary, SitaMata Sanctuary and Tal Chapper Sanctuary.
There are various safety reasons due to which the safaris in the sanctuaries of Rajasthan remains closed during this time. One of them being heavy rainfall due to which the tracks lose its shape and the water collects which may shoot up the chances of accidents.
The other reason is that this is the breeding season for many animals. It is optimal for the survival of the young in terms of factors such as ambient temperature, water and food availability and also behavioral changes in many animals. Related interests and behaviors are expressed and accepted during this period.
Also, the growth in flora and fauna hikes up vegetation covers which spreads over the roads and tracks increasing the chances of attacks by wild animals and also the poisonous plants that grow alongside that may harm the visitors. Hence, for your safety, it will remain closed this season.
But , hey, don’t be disappointed. Rajasthan provides a wide scape for tourism. Those who want to travel must not cancel their plans due to this reason. Rajasthan welcomes you all with open hearts and wide arms. It’s a state that offers immense opportunities of exploring various cities, heritage sites, and culture .
