There isn't anything better than adding a visit Palighat if you are travelling to Ranthambore and looking for an unforgettable experience by the banks of Chambal River. 

Another reason why visiting Palighat crocodile park is one of the best things to do in Ranthambore is, the presence of huge numbers of 'Gharials'; which is already an endangered species, living along with mighty marsh crocodiles within the steams of Chambal river.

Other species you can expect to witness includes; Jungle cats, turtles, skimmers. Though the Gangetic dolphins breed quite far from Palighat Crocodile park, but there have been rare occasions when people have sighted Gangetic Dolphins within Palighat crocodile sanctuary.
