In search of Big cats in Sariska; My maiden trip to Sariska Tiger Reserve

We retired for the day 1 to wake up early to catch the booked safari.....but as usual being "late latifs" we are not able to wake up early and missed our safari seats....

Note:- People booking their safari jeeps online for Sariska should reach the Sariska entry gate before 7AM otherwise you may not get jeeps for safari and your reservation will stand cancel and you has to made fresh bookings at counter that too if any jeep/canter is available.

So we missed our original bookings and now there is no jeep available for booking and there is only one option that you need to book a canter and for canter you need 20 people or you pay for the whole canter and take it with you...We were cursing our luck, but suddenly two more group came and we made a big group to book for canter..:)...Finally we were allowed to enter the tiger reserve called Sariska......yiepeee...here we come the big cats (again hard luck)...But it was an awesome experience, being in a tiger's area that too with open canter and no security....:p

BTW the journey from Alwar till Sariska have some awesome views of hills, villages, water bodies etc....Though I had not taken any photo in morning, but taken while coming back...

lets start my photo journey in the reserve.....

Hello Msk,

Apologies for the delayed reply, I was not able to check my BCMT profile due to work pressure. below are answers to your queries:

- Safari Jeeps & Canters. Their charges. Per vehicle or Per person.
You can book Safari Jeeps online and check the charges there only. But you suppose to reach at Sariska Gates on or before 6:30 AM in morning to avail the jeeps booked online. Otherwise your booking stands cancelled.
- Safari timings
7AM Onwards
- Different routes for Safai and which on is better/ best
Not sure, because canters and Jeeps take different routes. we missed our online booked jeep and hence to rebook canter with other folks there.
- Can one take own vehicle inside ?
- No for Safari.
- Option of hotels other tan Tiger den and Sariska Palace
- We stayed at Alwar.
- Any offbeat hotels/ camps for stay available nearby
- No.

you can get in touch with Pushpendera Saini - 07065251724. He is a guide in Alwar and arrange thigs for you.
