abby,
thanks for the info.
Great pictures!
I am trying to get gypsy safari tickets directly online with the link you provided.
All is going well (there are still plenty for my dates in March) till I have to submit the payment and then it is rejected each time.
I tried several different Visa cards, PayPal - all no good.
I am sure the problem is on their end.
Any advice?

it is nice to hear that you visited Ranthambore,
as it is the best National Park to see the cat walk of Tigers in their own way, so we must hav a jeep.
you have to hire a jeep by registered agency only. Usually hotel have a monopoly in this regard.
it is always interesting to see the tigers after 5-6pm only.

I give up!!
i haven't actually tried to book - just found the site & the option...

i've described it as a "mafia".
once, at the office, i was told there's 1 seat in a jeepl; the next minute a guy speaking over the cell-phone told me it's taken...

sorry i can't be of help

"it is always interesting to see the tigers after 5-6pm only."

Hi aby,
I finally gave up and I am booking it with the hotel where I am staying.
They are charging me almost double for the jeep but what choice do I have as I cannot book it myself.
It's still not a lot of money - just the idea of it.
It's a tiny amount of what this whole trip will cost and I don't want to risk not getting a jeep seat.
Thanks,
Paul
