We decided to give the tiger safari one more shot and booked a safari for this morning. The only thing on our agenda today was to head to Jaipur and since we didn’t want to waste our time in India we figured this was a perfect way to use our free day.

We were up again early this morning, our jeep picked us up at 6:45 AM. Then it was off to Ranthambhore National Park. Our safari went about the same as it did yesterday, we saw some tiger tracks and heard some warning calls but didn’t spot anything. Even though we were disappointed that we didn’t see a tiger we still had fun on the safari and are happy we went. Also, the guide was great and really tried hard to find a tiger for us.

After the safari we headed back to the hotel to meet our driver and head to Jaipur. On the way we ran into a little bit of a traffic jam. The local holy man passed away yesterday and we had to wait a while for the funeral procession to pass. After we made it to the hotel we packed up and grabbed a quick breakfast.

Then it was time to drive to Jaipur, which took roughly four hours. We stopped for lunch on the way to our hotel but it was a long drive and we were happy when it was over. As we mentioned before we’ve really enjoyed our tour but have been disappointed with the hotels. Tonight we’re in a hotel we booked and it’s much more aligned with what we were hoping for!

Tomorrow we have a tour of Jaipur booked. Now it’s time for bed because we have to be up early again to meet our driver and guide.

Happy Travels,
