A wildlife safari in the Ranthambore national park has been always fun and there could not be anything better than catching the glimpses of wild animals in their natural habitat. But sometimes, fun can become risky and people are caused harm by animal attacks due to their carelessness. Some cases have been reported in the past where conflicts had been seen between human and animals. In this blog, we are sharing few important things that need to be remembered while enjoying the safari in the national park:
Follow the guidelines and instructions provided by the Guide
It is said that rules are made to break but when you are under the boundary of national park, then breaking rules can be dangerous for you and your life. It is important that how you are behaving in the park. Sometimes, people become victim of animal attack and are killed while having fun and adventures. So, follow the guidelines and instructions strictly because your guide is experienced and if he said something then it really mean to be.
Stay inside the Ranthambore Camp
In case, if you are staying in the Tent accommodation in Ranthambore then make sure you do not go outside your tents in the night. Also, keep the tent close and zipped to stay protected from animals. Do not carry raw food as the animal may get attract with the pungent smell of the food.
Don’t come out of your jeep/canter
Don’t come out of the jeep/canter unless you are told to do the same. Stay in your jeep as anytime you may be attacked by animal. Obviously, having fun should not lead to harm and you must stay safe while experiencing the wildlife in the park.
Don’t feed animals
Never feed animals while being in excitement as it can be your biggest fault. Never throw the remaining food in the park. By doing so, animals start expecting these edible items from tourists and this may become danger when they starve or unable to find their prey. Also, feeding animals may hamper their skills of searching food on their own and they may become dependent.
Maintain the distance with animals
Maintaining the distance with animals is not only about maintaining with tiger, leopard or lion. You also need to take care and stay away from other animals like elephant, kangaroo, giraffe or zebra. These are the peaceful creatures but you never know when they become angry or violent while interacting with you. Remember they might look cute to you but they are not your pets. Thus, while clicking pictures, keep some distance and because animals are powerful and violent at sometimes.
Keep Flashlight of camera and mobile off
Some tourists do not take care but it is important to keep the flashlight off of your camera/phone while clicking pictures. Animals may get frighten of flashlight and may attack you. So, a fun can be danger to you just by your silly mistake. Also, some research have proved that flashlight is harmful for retina of animals and birds.
Don’t go offbeat during the safari
Do not encourage your driver/guide to go offbeat in search of wildness and find more wild animals. Follow the regular path and stick to the route known to him. It may cause any mishappening, animal attack or getting lost in the jungle.
Wear sober colors
Try to wear camouflage print clothes to blend with the wildlife around you. The bright clothes may attract animals more towards you which is a sign of danger.
Follow the above steps and remember that your expedition in their area could not lead to the destruction of wildlife habitats and hence you may fall as a victim of any animal. Stay safe and enjoy trip with the Best accommodation in Ranthambore.
