According to Deputy Conservator of Forests of Ranthambore Rahul Bhatnagar this zone will be opened from 18th January 2014 and the tickets could be had from the ticket counter at Sawai Madhopur and Gypsy would be allotted for such tours. Admission Rates, Guide Fees, Vehicle rent and the in and out timings would be same as in other zones. However, the visitors can take the gypsy of their choice without roaster but with registered guide.
 
Visitors would be able to watch Tiger T-43 and Tigress T-13 with her cubs in the new zone beginning from 18th January. They may also become lucky and see Tiger T-42 and Tigress T-59 also in the area.
 
The Sawai Mansingh Sanctuary, once heavily overrun by cattle has been a great success story with cattle herders now acting as nature guides. The result is a landscape has been restored without the over grazing in a remarkable way, proving that very simple measures and alternative livelihoods can have a rapid effect on conservation areas.
