Whether it’s territorial clash between two grown up tigers or predatory pursuits or carcass gatherings of different animals, seasoned safaris in Ranthambhore National Park have notched up wildlife sightings we can’t imagine. Yet, if you ask us about that once-in-a-lifetime experience in the wild, it would be watching a mother tigress bringing her newborn cubs out in wilds just after 10 days.  The T-84 (Machali Junior) gave birth to new cubs and they were first sighted in zone 2 of Ranthambhore Park on Thursday.

The mommy tigress in the rare image is showing the signs of recent birth. For the tigers, last few months of their pregnancy are a secret affair: they’ll usually isolate themselves to give birth in a sheltered, hidden spot, where the new arrivals are spirited away for the first four to six weeks of life. “Typically a big cat would move off on its own, give birth and only introduce her litters to open places when they are more capable of fending for themselves. But this is once in a lifetime experience.  Currently, looking at the safety of the cubs, Tiger safari has been stopped at the national park.

But, be ready to witness more action as this summer will be exciting and full of frivolities of these young tigers as Ranthambhore’s Queen aka Arrow-Head will be seen roaming around with the new cubs.

Kota’s Mukundra Hills Tiger Reserve (MHTR) will be the first tiger reserve in the country offering both “wildlife safari” and “water safari” services to the tourists.

“Tourists visiting MHTR for wildlife safari will also get the option of boat ride in Chambal river from Jawahar Sagar sanctuary to Bhainsrodgarh sanctuary to get a glimpse of beauty of MHTR and Chambal valley,” said Om Birla, the BJP MP from Kota, after a visit to the park and interaction with its officials on Tuesday.

MHTR is rich in flora and fauna with the perennial Chambal river flowing through it. There are around 60 panthers, 1,000 cheetal/sambhar deer, 60 bears, 1,000 wild boars and 500 blue bulls. However, there is no tiger in the park at present. Iinfrastructural projects are underway in the park ahead of the proposed release of tigers in it by March next year.

Birla said that ecotourism would start at the park after the release of tigers. “Water safari and wildlife safari will both boost ecotourism in the region and generate employment opportunities for people,” he added. The MP said that the water safari project, including the 25-km boat ride in the Chambal river, would be funded by the Urban Improvement Trust (UIT) of Kota.

Informing about water safari plan at MHTR, SR Yadav, deputy conservator of forest, MHTR, said that wildlife safari and water safari services will be started only after the released tigers will get acclimatised with the new habitat, which may take some months.

A documentary film on MHTR will also be made for the first time, which will show the flora and fauna, heritage structures and aquatic life at MHTR. “The documentary film will be of around 5 to 10 minutes,” said Yadav.

MHTR was formed in 2013 by joining wildlife sanctuaries of Kota region including Dara wildlife sanctuary of Kota, Jawahar Sagar sanctuary of Bundi, Chambal Ghariyal sanctuary of Kota and Bundi districts and some forest blocks of Chittorgarh district. The park is spread in around 759.99 sqkm area including 417.17 sqkm of core area and around 342.82 sqkm of buffer area.

Now, both domestic and foreign tourists will have to pay more for tiger safari in Ranthambore National Park. Previously, the booking price per person was Rs.727 for a domestic tourist and it has now been increased to Rs. 897 per person after the hike of Rs.170. Similarly, gypsy booking price for foreign tourists has been increased to Rs1,637 from the previous fee of Rs1,467. The increase in revenue is being attributed to the growing population of tigers in Ranthambore reserve.

Apart from this, Ranthambore in 2016 launched a ‘tatkal’ tiger safari scheme, allowing tourists to go on a full day or half day forest safari from sunrise to sunset.
