Rajasthan at Glance >> Rajasthan Wildlife

Though Rajasthan is much famous for its forts, palaces, rich history, sand dunes, and camels, Rajasthan Wildlife is no less important from tourism point of view. In fact, Rajasthan Wildlife is the most appealing aspect of Rajasthan tourism.

The jungles and wildlife sanctuaries of the state boast of an excellent wildlife. With two National parks, over a dozen Sanctuaries and two closed areas, Rajasthan offers ample choice to the wildlife lovers. All wildlife sanctuaries of the state are easily accessible by car and have accommodation within or near them.
