Jungle safari in Ranthambore is not just for a Tigers but you wish to enjoy other flora & fauna and surely you will see lots of birds and other mammals inside the park. You should not be definitely confirmed for tiger sighting in your first safari. If you are a wildlife enthusiast, you should use many techniques & things, like one must track/expect tiger but you must enjoy the wildlife as a whole. Tiger tracking and sighting is altogether different experience in the forest. No one can be assured that one will see a tiger at certain place or zone (exception's like if there is a kill, are there) during the Jungle Safari in the Ranthambore National Park. If you do not see tiger in three-four safari trips then you should judge yourself as literally star-crossed.
