And even better, tigers watching you. Ride on an elephant’s back high above the tall grasses and experience the jungle coming to life. See birds that have migrated to India all the way from Siberia to escape its subzero temperatures to hatch their babies. And lose yourself in the colourful array of creatures native to the country.
Take a walk through the dense Western Ghats, one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. Witness insects scurrying around, arboreal animals jumping from tree to tree, and revel in the stunning flora.
Or take a trip up north to the majestic Himalayas, where the beautiful, stoic creatures of the mountains await you. The northeast of India is home to such rare animals as the one-horned rhino and the enormous Mahseer fish (which can weigh as much as 54kg).
If you prefer the heat to the cold, venture down to the world famous Mangrove Forests in the Sundarbans, where the Royal Bengal Tiger makes it home. Out west you can basque in the glory of the King of the Jungle, the Asiatic Lion. And down south visit national parks filled with herds of serene elephants.
Rest assured that India’s wildlife will never cease to amaze you. Click Here for more Information on Our Wildlife Tours.

Up in the Himalayas

With only around 500 left in the sparsely vegetated regions of northern India, the Snow Leopard tour also makes for an adventurous journey into a rarely visited ecosystem. Click Here to Learn More
