Ranthambhore jeep safari is expensive from today, on Friday June 23, 2017. Now Jungle safari will be expensive for tourist by Jeep in Ranthambore National Park. Forest Department has ordered to introduce new rates on Friday June 23, 2017 from morning safari shift. Under the order, tourists will have to pay Rs. 1020 (one thousand and twenty rupees on full occupancy jeep booking and Rs.170 per person on sharing basis jeep booking) more in the new rates than the old rates. These rates have been increased after the March 2015 by the Forest Department. As per the department, state government will get more revenue due to increase jeep safari fees for Ranthambore National Park visit, which can be used for the development of Ranthambore.
There has been no change in rates of Canter (open top roof safari bus) safari by the forest department and the rates of open safari buses (Canter) have been decided to be kept as before. Tourists will take benefit to visit park by Canter, because the canter safari charges is cheaper than the jeep safari charges in Ranthambore National Park.
Forest officials say that 80 percent of tourists coming to Ranthambore demand jeep, while the numbers of jeeps are limited for the jungle Safari tour in Ranthambore National Park. In such condition, it is not possible to book tickets in the Gypsy for all tourists. Whereas, the Canters goes to the same place in the park during Jungle safari where the jeeps goes. But often tourists do not prefer to take safari in Canter, while canter safari rates are much lower compared to Jeep safari rates in Ranthambhore national Park. Forest Department argues that if jeep rates are high then tourist’s trend will increase towards Canter Safari in Ranthambore. On the other hand, a large number of tourists will be able to park visit by the canter. In the bus, 18-20 tourists travel together while only 6 tourists can visit by jeep in Ranthambore.
As per the Y K Sahu, CCF, and Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve – Jeep safari rates will be more expensive one thousand in Ranthambore. New Safari rates will be effective from Friday, June 23, 2017. This decision has been taken due to the increasing demand of Jeep safari in tourists.
