‘Project Cheetah’ expected to provide an impetus to Rajasthan tourism

 Tuesday, September 27, 2022 


‘Project Cheetah’ is expected to provide an impetus to Rajasthan tourism in the long run, owing to the state’s nearness to Kuno-Palpur National Park. Its entry point is only 100 kilometers away from Sawai Madhopur.

Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park is the new home of African cheetahs in India.The park is relishing its new-found global recognition after eight cheetahs were recently airlifted from Namibia and later released in the wildlife sanctuary with much elaboration.

Experts are of the opinion that cheetahs are a new fascination in India and if their translocation proves fruitful, it will create a new route in the region adjoining Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan.

Experts said that Karahal, the access point of Kuno-Palpur National Park (KPNP), is only 100 kilometers from Ranthambore, which is Rajasthan’s tiger tourism hub with the nearest railway junction being Sawai Madhopur.

Balendu Singh, the Executive Member of the Federation of Hospitality and Tourism of Rajasthan (FHTR) said thattourism will certainly increase once the park becomes completely open. Sawai Madhopur is the closest train junction. It is one of the gateway points; hence, the footfall is expected to increase after Kuno’s attainment of glory.

Moreover, the new Delhi-Mumbai super highway will cross through Sawai Madhopur.

A total of 20 cheetahs are approved for Kuno National Park. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has himself released three of these cheetahs into a special arena in the park.
