With a wide range of flora and fauna, the park attracts a lot of animal lovers from all across the world. A natural habitat for Asian Lions, Bengal Tiger, Wild Boar, Civet Cats, Himalayan Black Bear and many more, this region is an enthralling ecological hotspot


A treat for bird watchers & ornithologists

Apart from the variety of animals, the sanctuary also houses more than 285 species of birds, that can be spotted here. The most important and popular bird out of these is the 'White-napped Tit', which is not found anywhere else. While at the park, you must visit the Ram Sagar, which is an ideal spot to catch distinct varieties of birds.

Upon visiting the park, there are various options to choose from, if one plans on staying at this wildlife reserve. It houses huge villas, which were used by the erstwhile Maharajas as their hunting lodges. Some famous places to stay here include Lalit Vilas, Gopal Vilas and Ganga Vilas.

White tiger to mate with golden tigress for the first time in this zoo!

In order to add to the existing big cat family of the zoo, the authorities are now making efforts to help Cheenu- the white tiger mate with the golden tigress- Rani. Both of these tigers were brought from Odisha's Nandankanan Zoo in March, last year. Though the plan was to get a white tigress for Cheenu and a golden tiger for Rani earlier, the mating between the two was given a green signal to avoid any further delay. The increase in the number of tigers will eventually help in boosting tourism in the state.

Know before you go!

The park is open for public on all days except Tuesday and the best time to visit the park is early morning as the animals are usually active at that time. The ticket is priced at ₹50 for Indian adults, ₹20 for students and ₹300 for foreigners. Add a visit to this park in your Jaipur itinerary for a wholesome experience amid the allures of wilderness!
