According to information received from forest department, boarding place will be made for jungle safari at many places like Ganesh Dham, Rajbagh chowki etc. For a long time, there was a demand for a boarding place for safari in Ranthambore. Forest officials said many tourists had complained of late entry into the park last year. The main reason for this is that after the boarding pass is issued, tourist drivers have to take many tourists from different hotels. Apart from this, the tour of Ranthambore National Park will become expensive with the new tourist season.
