Ranthambore is the first wildlife sanctuary of the state to supply water through the pipeline on the hill for wildlife.

In the summer season, water problems arise at the mountainous areas for wildlife in Ranthambore. To get rid of this problem, a unique initiative has been taken to bring water to the mountainous forest areas for wildlife in Ranthambore National Park. Under this, the forest department has laid pipelines of water till the hill in many areas of Ranthambore National Park. Ranthambore is the first wildlife sanctuary of the state, which is supplying water through the pipeline up to the hill for wild animals. This unique and new initiative of the Forest Department in Ranthambore has presented an example for other wildlife sanctuaries.

In order to facilitate wildlife in forest areas located on the hill, water-holes have also been constructed on the hill by the forest department of Rajasthan. In such a situation, tigers and other wild animals are easily quenching their thirst. The summer season is considered to be best time for Jungle safari in Ranthambore National Park, because all wildlife action happens near the water hole. This is the golden opportunity to see the tiger near the water body in summer season. This is the reason why most of the wildlife photographers prefer to visit Ranthambore in summer season so that they can easily capture tigers and other wild animals in their cameras.
