The tigers are the highlight of the reserve. If you want to see them, then, make sure to maintain a peaceful equilibrium. If you don't respect their space, they will be disturbed. In the year 2020, the number of tigers in the Reserve increased up to twenty, which was very good to hear. They will continue to thrive if we only admire them from afar without disturbing them. It is the first reserve in the world to successfully relocate tigers, and since then, they have been thriving.
The forest is a part of the Aravalli Range, hence, it is magnificent and primeval. It is both exciting, and peaceful to take a safari through the forest.
