Wildlife TOURS

Wildlife tours to India take the wildlife enthusiast to a diverse and abundant land. The Indian subcontinent embraces an enormous range of habitats extending from the spectacular peaks of the Himalayas in the north, through forests, lakes and deserts to the moist Nilgiri hills in the south of the country where the shoreline is lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

India is an exciting destination in other respects. The abundant archaeological reminders of the country’s extraordinary history and the fascination of becoming immersed into a completely unique and complex culture are reasons enough to visit India. However, for anyone interested in natural history the attractions of an India wildlife holiday are simply too great to resist.

The population of tigers, the largest of the big cat species, is sadly in a precarious state. Land encroachment and the obscenity of poaching to meet the ludicrous demands of ancient medicine have left an indelible mark on the future of this magnificent beast. However, due to the herculean efforts of conservationists, charities and tourism, it is still possible to see tigers in the wild. Seeing a tiger in the wild is by no means guaranteed, but when – if – you do see that flash of fiery orange in the undergrowth, it’s a truly wondrous moment. Nothing compares to the visceral thrill of seeing a real tiger up close. The first encounter, that magical moment when you lock eyes with one of these precious big cats, stays with you for life. Due to a huge effort by conservationalists, some of whom we’ve been involved with for many years, there are even reports that tiger populations have increased for the first time in over a century.

The best places to watch tigers are Bandhavgarh, Kanha and Ranthambore. Tiger safaris are done by vehicle and although not offering the profusion of game you may find in Africa, our wildlife trips to India offer plenty of other flora and fauna to enjoy, as well as a good chance of a sighting of this elusive and endangered predator.

An Indian wildlife tour may surprise you. You’ll see far more than just the amazing Bengal tiger on your travels through India’s many jungles and forests. In fact, you can meet all the characters from the Jungle Book in real life, whether it is leopard, bear, many forms of deer, fantastic birdlife, rhino, wild elephants, bison and even Asiatic lion – in some ways the variety on offer rivals that of an African safari.

India has a multitude of national parks and wildlife sanctuaries where you can see the many of these species and also experience India’s stunning landscapes and rural heartlands along with its magical culture. In recent years, a range of luxury safari lodges have opened in many of the parks ensuring your wildlife experience is taken to the next level. Obviously many guests love to see a tiger in the wild on safari, yet hopefully this little guide helps to show that India has a wealth of other wildlife that share its forests and jungles, ensuring your luxury safari in India is enjoyable from start  to finish.
