Mobile Ad Hoc Networks are generally dynamic collections of self-organizing mobile nodes with links that are characterized by dynamic topology changes and with no fixed infrastructure. The academic communities have proposed many routing protocols for possible practical implementation of a MANET in military, commercial and governmental environments. In this paper, the Reactive routing protocols namely Ad Hoc On demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) were analyzed in various mobility models like RPGM, Manhattan and Random way point under different square dimensional areas and network density. The simulation results provides a better insight in the performance of the selected routing protocols.
