A guided tour of both Old and New Delhi. The day commences with a visit to Jama Masjid, after which a rickshaw ride will take you to labyrinthine alleys of Chandni Chowk. Then we’ll visit a few cultural monuments and then visit Humayun’s tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

An early morning train will take you to Agra. On arrival you’ll have some time to relax and unwind in your hotel, and then soak in some incredible views of the Taj Mahal during sunset.

Day 4

Agra – Bandhavgarh National Park

Experience the sublimity of the Taj Mahal at sunrise. It is a magical kaleidoscope of solitude, color and emotion. We’ll follow this by a visit to the impressive Agra Fort. In the evening we’ll board the overnight train to Katni, the closest station to Bandhavgarh National Park.

Day 5

Bandhavgarh National Park

Upon arriving in Katni, we’ll drive to your lodge in Bandhavgarh National Park, the former hunting reserve of the Maharaja. Nestled between the picturesque hills of Vindhya and Satpura, it is a place of stunning natural beauty. We’ll embark on our first safari in the afternoon.

Day 6

Bandhavgarh National Park

It’s a day of safaris, as we’ll take one in the morning and another in the evening. We’ll drive deep into the dense Sal jungle, which is made up of vast stretches of grasslands spread across 32 hills. Along with the wide variety of flora and fauna, the park is also home to an ancient fort that adds some historical interest to the trip.

Day 7

Bandhavgarh National Park

Another day with morning and evening safaris in the dense Sal jungle. It has the highest density of tigers in the region so chances to spot one are high with two full days. Other animals in the park include several species of deer, wild boars, four-horned antelopes, the Indian Bison, wild dogs, leopards, and sloth bears.

Day 8

Bandhavgarh National Park - Kanha National Park

Today we’ll drive to the most scenic National Park in India, the Kanha Tiger Reserve. It’s a large open meadow, so the chances of seeing wildlife, including tigers, are high. If time permits you can go on your first safari in the afternoon.

Day 9

Kanha National Park

A day dedicated to exploration and wildlife spottings. We’ll go on morning and afternoon safaris, maximizing our chances of seeing the large variety of species inhabiting the reserve. Some of them can be quite shy, but our expert guides are highly proficient at finding them.

Enjoy another day of safaris. Other animals regularly sighted in the park include chital, gaur, three-striped palm squirrel, common langur, jackal, wild pig, black buck, striped hyena, leopard, mouse deer, porcupine, chinkara, sambar and ant-eating pangolin. Elephant safaris are also available.

Day 11

Kanha National Park - Tadoba National Park

The drive to Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve is long but not lacking in excitement. The topography is beautiful and varied, with tropical jungles, dry plains, and deciduous forests providing some awe-inspiring vistas.

Day 12

Tadoba National Park

We’ll again go on both morning and evening safaris today. Although Tadoba is renown for its tigers, it is also home to a host of other animals such as birds, reptiles and amphibians. The songs of the birds will help you relax into the peaceful nature.
