India - Land of the Tiger

This private tour takes you to the cities of Delhi and Mumbai as well as the national parks of Panna, Bandhavgarh and Kanha. You will explore the palaces and temples of the cities as well as the parks but the main aim is to see as much of India's fascinating wildlife as possible and to catch a glimpse of the elusive tiger. India's national parks are teeming with wildlife such as the Asian elephant, leopard, many species of deer, bears, snakes, lizards, birds and buffalo. You will stay in handpicked accommodation throughout including classic safari camps and expert guides will accompany you on your tours and game viewing.

The national parks are all doing important conservation work including tigers, leopards and rhinos projects. By staying in the parks you are contributing to their success and bringing in much needed income which supports the conservation efforts.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 3

Delhi
On arrival in Delhi you will be met and transferred to your hotel for the next few nights. Over the following couple of days you will be taken out to explore Delhi on a private tour visiting New Delhi (India gate, Parliament and the Presidents House) and Old Delhi (Jama Masjid, the old city, Humayun's Tomb and the Red Fort) as well as rickshaw ride.

DAY 4 - 5

Panna Tiger Reserve
This morning you will be transferred to the airport for your flight from Delhi to Khajuraho where you will be met and transferred to Panna visiting the famous Khajuraho temples en-route. These are regarded as the pinnacle of North India's art and architecture and not to be missed! Arrive at Panna in time for dinner. The next day you will have a morning and afternoon game drive with an expert naturalist. The lesser known Panna has seen a success of the tiger reintroduction programme, a lesson that other national parks would do well to emulate. With a good mammal population and a rich raptor activity indicating a healthy ecosystem, the park offers an offbeat experience for wildlifers looking to avoid the hassle and formalities of more popular destinations.

DAY 6 - 8

Bandhavgarh
After breakfast you will leave Panna and drive to Banhavgarh arriving in mid afternoon. The following day you will have a morning and afternoon game drive with an expert looking for the tigers which have made this place famous. Cradled amidst the picturesque hills of Central India, the renowned tiger reserve of Bandhavgarh was a former hunting ground for kings. If the thick bamboo forest and dense greenery with streams, rivers and waterfalls are not enchanting enough, the 1st Century fortress ruins and the rich biodiversity make Bandhavgarh a favourite for wildlifers and photographers alike.
