After lot of hit and try, we got the correct government website and booked the tickets ourselves. But, we were able to book canter as the gypsy gets booked way in advance.

Website Link: https://sso.rajasthan.gov.in

Thanks,

Pragya

I have just tried this website and can't work out how to register. It's a nightmare. I tried the new website and that didn't work either.

Hi, thanks for the information! I also tried it but got stuck with the payment. Do you know how this works, is this only for India citizens?

The booking portal is fmdss.forest.rajasthan.gov.in

If you go through the sso.rajasthan.gov.in then you have select "Forest & Wildlife" app icon at the SSO dashboard after login. Then you will reach at the fmdss portal.

The booking process accept the international payments also. For this follow the following steps:

1. After filling all required information about the visitors in the booking form please click on pay now button

2. This will redirect you to e-mitra payment gateway page.

3. At the e-mitra payment gateway page, please select “Aggregator” tab given in the left panel of the page.

4. After selection of “Aggregator” tab, please select ”RAZOR PAY(National & International Banks/Cards-RPP)” option given in the drop down of “select bank”.

Then you may select your desired option of “Credit Card” or “Debit Card” or “Net Banking” and make payment accordingly.

Furthermore please go through the helpdoc available at http://fmdss.forest.rajasthan.gov.in/Help/User_Manual_Online%20_Ticket_Booking_20-12-2018.pdf

and may contact at helpdesk.fmdss@rajasthan.gov.in

Hiya Dushyant S,

Thanks so much - I have tried both of those sites and I can't even get as far as your 4 steps. My main problem is with logging in and registering - it takes me all round the houses to Twitter and email registering but nothing seems to work. If you could send a step by step guide to that bit, maybe I could make progress. It's setting up the digital identity SSOID section that I don't get. IN the meantime I have asked a hotel to do it but haven't had a reply from them yet. Anyway, appreciate your efforts...

I have done this too, I would not say "charm" to describe the process, but it was not that hard. Using a google account to log in, as opposed to creating a new account for SSO Rajasthan, avoids many problems.

After getting your ticket, go back to the same site to get the PDF file. The instructions tell you to print two copies of this to bring with you! I am attaching the exact instructions that appear in the booking confirmation slip.

Instruction 1, "collect the boarding pass at least 45 minutes prior to entry time", and instruction 6, "boarding passes shall be collected ... during 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM of previous evening for the next morning safari," are very confusing!!! What time is it? 45 minutes before? or the night before?

1. The visitor or his/her representative must reach to the Forest Safari booking centre to collect the boarding pass, at least 45 minutes prior to the entry time.

2. The Id proof of visitor produced at the time of collecting boarding pass should be the Id used while booking online ticket, failing which, the ticket will be deemed fake and liable to be cancelled. The visitor must also carry copy of such Id while visiting the Park.

3. The charges deposited during online booking include tourist entry fee, tiger reserve development fund, vehicle entry fee, vehicle rent, guide fees and online booking charges and applicable taxes.

4. The visitor must bring two copies of confirmation slip at the time of collecting boarding pass. One copy will be deposited in the office and the other copy will be carried by the visitor.

5. Seats remaining vacant due to non-turn up of any visitors would be filled by the park management at the booking window.

6. Boarding pass shall be collected from the booking office Ranthambhore National Park during 7.30 PM to 8.30 PM of previous evening for the next day morning safari. For afternoon/evening safari the boarding pass shall be collected from 12.30 PM to 1.30 PM on the same day.

7. Allotment of Vehicle for safari will be done at least one and half hour prior to the entry time of visitors in the park for safari.

8. In case of group booking, park authorities will try to adjust the group together in vehicles subject to space availability at the time of entry

9. Boarding Pass will be issued at: Forest Safari Booking Office, Shilpgram, Village Ramsinghpura, Ranthambhore Road, Sawai Madhopur

10. The Tiger Reserve Management reserves the right to change the zone booked online at any time or close any zone in the interest of wildlife.

11. Choice of Guide is available on payment of Rs. 500/- extra per guide per safari.

12. Visitors have option to choose a vehicle (Gypsy/Canter) of their choice on payment of Rs. 2000/-” per Gypsy and Rs. 3000/- per Canter at the time of getting boarding pass.

13. For cancellations made 30 days or more in advance from the date of safari, fifty percent amount would be refunded through the channel the booking was made.

14. In case of any changes in applicable Fees & Tax Rates, the difference amount shall be collected at the time of Boarding/ entry of the park.

We tried booking through the government website. A tedious process, to say the least! Plus, you don't have enough on-the-ground information to make an informed decision.

We found it easier (but more expensive) to just go through an agent. We even made some last-minute canter bookings at the zone of our choice.

Here's a blog post about our experience, in case you're interested: https://thegoodlifewithiq.com/2019/01/21/first-stop-motorcycle-tour-ranthambhore-safari/

The website also provides user manual on how to use the platform to book tickets.

https://fmdss.forest.rajasthan.gov.in/Help/User_Manual_Online20_Ticket_Booking_20-12-2018.pdf

We always use the same to book our group tour. best zone to go for tiger safari are zone no.3, 4, 2, 5 and 6. Ranthambore is not just about tigers. Some safari zones have beautiful landscape and lakes. These zones are zone number 3 and 4. Zone 3 is the most popular and preferred safari zone for tourists.

Let me know if you have any more queries. Would be happy to help.
