During the 19th century these forest were the private and exclusive hunting reserves of the Jaipur and Karauli royal family. As the population increase in the area the forest and the food supply was disrupted which caused the Indian Government to provide protect from its total destruction. However, legal hunting continued unabated until 1973 and by then the tiger population was almost totally decimated.
In 2005, the Rajasthan and the Indian government set up high powered committees to look into the state of park and to suggest measures to improve the situation
We had a good time looking but as you can see from the lack of pictures NO Tigers were seem by us during our stay. We did see tiger tracks, and dung.
But we did have a great camel ride which I made a short video.
