The 480 sq km sanctuary lies in a valley surrounded by the barren Aravalli hills. The princely shooting reserve of the Maharaja of Alwar was declared a sanctuary in 1955 and is a tiger reserve under Project Tiger. We did a brief early morning safari in December 2004 and saw a variety of animals such as deers, antelopes, monkeys and wild boars, but no tigers. The guide told us there were 25 tigers and 60 leopards in the reserve.
