Things to Know
Where is the Sariska Wildlife SanctuaryTigrer in Sariska Tiger Reserve
The Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary in Rajasthan is situated only 200 km from Delhi and 107 km from Jaipur. Although larger than Ranthambore, it is less commercialised and has less tigers but a similar topography. The wide range of wildlife here is a wonderful example of ecological adoption and tolerance, for the climate here is variable as well as erratic.

The Climate in the Sariska Tiger Reserve
The park bears a completely different look in the summer months and in the months post-monsoon. It looks extremely dry in the summers and becomes dense and lush green after the monsoons.

Important Dates in Sariska's History
The reserve was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1958 and came under the "Project Tiger" as a tiger reserve in 1979.

The Ecological System in the Sariska Tiger Reserve
The Landscape in the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary
Sharp cliffs of hills and narrow valleys of the Aravallis dominate the landscape of Sariska, whose forests are dry and deciduous. There aren't many good water bodies present within the park complex. There is a small lake to the left of the main road only a small distance from the entrance, which dries in the summers.

The Flora in the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary
There is some excellent grassland with water channels passing all over them. The forest area is mostly of the dry deciduous type with Dhok, Khair, Tendu, Ber, Surwal and Goria making up a majority of the vegetation.

The Sariska National Park is home to several carnivores including Leopard, Wild Dog, Jungle Cat, Hyena, Jackal, and Tiger. These feed on an abundance of prey species such as Sambar, Chital, Nilgai, Chausingha, Wild Boar and Langur. Sariska is also well known for its large population of Rhesus Monkeys, which are found in large numbers around Talvriksh.

The Avifauna in the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary
The avian population in the park is also very healthy. During late summer and in the monsoon months, it is possible to find large numbers of peacocks in their dancing postures. Some of the bird species visible in the park are - Peafowl, Red Jungle Fowl, Spur Fowls, White Breasted Kingfishers, Golden Backed Woodpeckers, Great Indian Horned Owls, Quails, Partridges, Sangrouse, Tree Pies, Crested Serpent Eagles, Parakeets, Drongos, Sunbirds and Vultures.

Rides in the Sariska Tiger Reserve
The ideal way to explore the reserve is in your own vehicle. To go onto the jungle routes, you need to take an authorised guide. These guides can be booked at the reception of most of the hotels at the entrance, the park office and at the entrance. The other way that one can explore the remote areas of the jungle is by hiring a jeep from either the hotel or from the local jeep operators.
