Lakarda & Anantpura
At a distance of 9 km from Ranthambore National Park Entry Gate, and 7 km from Ranthambore Fort, Lakarda & Anantpura are the safari zones located in Ranthambore National Park.
Lakarda and Anantpura are located in north-western and northern region of Ranthambore National Park. These regions are known for their teeming population of Sloth bears as various sources of food like honeycomb and fresh fruits are available for them. Several species of monkeys and porcupines can also be spotted in the region making it a must visit spot for the wildlife enthusiasts and shutterbugs.
It is one of those few places in this wildlife reserve, where the pugmarks of the Indian striped Hyenas can be seen. This species of hyena has a very small population in the jungle and Lakarda and Anantpura are amongst those few spots where there is a possibility of sighting these otherwise rare species.
Morning is the best time to explore this hill in Ranthambore and study the natural lifestyle of the sloth bears. Tourists can visit Lakarda and Anantpura regions as part of Ranthambore Jungle Safari only.
