===Wildlife Safaris===
 +
To enter the park, you must have an approved guide and vehicle. Safaris are available either in the morning (6:00AM to 10:30AM) or in the afternoon (2:00PM to 7:00PM).
  
Take all the safaris you can (in the morning at 6:30 and in the afternoon at 14:30). You need a certain amount of luck to see a tiger (about 1 in 4 chance), but there are plenty of other wonderful sights. It is better to book the safaris via the official website the same time you book your hotel. Your hotel will also be able to secure tickets for you (in some cases, this maybe the only way to secure a "Gypsy" vehicle at late notice), but you will likely be charged a higher mark-up compared with purchasing the tickets from the government website yourself.  The number of entries to the park are restricted daily by the government, so be sure to book in advance [http://www.rajasthanwildlife.in/]. This is just the reservation, as you will need to bring a printout to the booking office upon arrival in Sawai Madhopur to confirm your excursion (and pay extra fees beyond the online deposit for your vehicle).  The office opens very early at 5am, so you can plan to head here first thing in the morning, then be picked up directly there.  Avoid the long lines (where locals line up to try to get on the daily safaris), and head to the window on the far left with your online booking printout where you will get confirmation tickets.
+
The park is divided into 10 zones. There is a quota for how many vehicles/visitors are allowed in each zone at any given time. The majority of the tigers live in zones 1 through 5. Zone 6 has a few tigers, but limited other wildlife, and Zone 8 (Balas) does not contain much wildlife, but it does include some beautiful temples. It is advisable to book ahead to make sure you get a ticket for zones 1-5. Safaris can be booked either online via the websites of various tour operators, at area hotels, or at the ticket window at the park entrance, which opens every day at 5:00AM (although prepare for long queues). You will have to show your passport when booking a safari, unless you are an Indian national, in which case your identification card will suffice.
  
There are two choices of vehicle for going on the safari, an all wheel drive jeep called a "Gypsy" (which seat up to 6 visitors) or 16 or 20 seater safari bus called a "Canter". The 16 seater is the petrol version and is a bit quieter than the 20 seater diesel version. A diesel/petrol canter safari costs 500/530rs for a non-Indian and a jeep safari 600rs for a non-Indian, but jeeps are more mobile and everything is better seen from them.
+
There are two types of vehicles used for safaris, both of which are open-top, all wheel drive vehicles:
 +
* '''Gypsys'''  seat up to 6 people
 +
* '''Canters''' seat 16-20 people and operate on either diesel or petrol.
  
The Park area open for tourists is divided into five zones, the zone is allotted by a computerized system at the park office (since the park is a nature reserve only a limited number of cars can enter it and they are obliged to follow only one of the five routes). The main park area (zones 1-5) is best as the majority of tigers live here, but if full Kundal is not a bad 2nd option (5 out of the park's 32 tigers live here).  Stay away from Balas as there are few animals here (nice scenery and remnant temples, but the reason you came here was to see wildlife).
+
Expect to pay ₹500-600 per person for the safari. There is an extra charge for using videography equipment, but no extra charge for camera use.
