Explore the wildlife wonders of India, combined with the splendors of bustling cities and historic sites. Our tours do focus on the wildlife aspect, though visits to Delhi, Agra for the Taj Mahal, and the spectacular palaces of Rajasthan, add rich variety to jungle safaris in search of tigers.
Tigers are the most sort after species whilst on safari, though many other animals occur, plus splendid bird life. The best tiger reserves are in central India, and we do suggest including two or three reserves in your safari. Accommodation and level of service at the jungle lodges we use is excellent, whilst guides (naturalists) provide in depth knowledge of all aspects of wild India. More adventurous tiger reserve activities can also be included, such as canoeing and hiking in Satpura National Park, or biking the trails of the Pench Tiger Forest. Funds from this day long cycling adventure, are channeled back into the preservation of the forest, ensuring it remains a critical corridor for tigers moving between Pench and Kanha Nationals Parks.
For big cat lovers, it’s possible to combine a tiger safari in India, with a safari in Kenya in search of lions and cheetah! Leopards, the most adaptable big cat on earth, can be spotted in both countries. We have come up with a unique itinerary that includes the incredible sights of India, a tiger safari plus a safari through Kenya. Mumbai and Nairobi are a six hour direct flight apart.
There are many possibilities for an India journey, with the best months to travel being November to April.
