The period between November and February is excellent for wildlife viewing, and particularly for bird watching. A lot of migratory birds visit the park during the winter months. Surwal Lake is a great place where one can spot migratory duck, geese, and other birds.

During the summer months (April to June), when the temperature soars above 40 degrees during the day, sighting tigers is relatively easier than it is in the winter months.

The magnificent eighth-century Ranthambhore Fort is situated within the National Park. It is one of India's largest forts with a circumference of eight kilometers. It has Mughal and Rajput palaces, mosques, and temples, including an important one dedicated to Lord Ganesha, the Elephant God. It would be ideal to organize a picnic or a half-day excursion to the Fort. The old city of Sawai Madhopur is also nearby. It is known for its silver jewelry, various objects made from khus (vetiver) grass, indigenous perfumes, and other local craft. It also has some old temples and is worth a visit.
