Best time to visit Sawai Madhopur

Sawai Madhopur is at prime beauty throughout the year. When it comes to Ranthambore National park, it is best to visit the park between October and June.

During summer season, March to June, you can find numerous animals near the watering holes. Spotting animals is easier during safari in this season.

During winter, October to February, the chances of spotting animals with their small ones are higher. The climatic condition will be pleasant and easier to scale the place for sightseeing and other attractions.

If you are visiting in monsoon season, the park receives mild to moderate rainfall and the ground becomes very slippery and marshy for safari vehicles to scale the place. This is the breeding season of the animals and thus, safari and entry will be prohibited. The rainfall also makes it harder to scale the other parts of the city.
