Delhi – A Photographic Start
Welcome to the capital city of India, Delhi, where the past and modern world combine in both architecture and culture. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and takes you to your comfortable accommodations. The remainder of the day is at your whim and pleasure. You notice the energetic streets of the city, awash with spiced aromas that drift from the chai stands down the walkways, and lined with people sipping their tea and talking. The colors are more vibrant than you ever could have imagined. Lightweight textiles and saris flow in the breeze and capture the colors of previously unknown depths of the rainbow.
The city is rambunctious with energy, filled with rickshaws that can take you through the old street and along the gates of the historic market where the scent of fabulous cuisine, such as tikka masala, and the smoky charcoal of roasting kebabs are mixed with the vibrant display of textile stores. Your private guide can take you outside the city center to the Okhla Bird Sanctuary over Yamuna River. The area is known to have over 300 bird species. You can look out over the one and half square miles of river to see an Indian vulture circling the area with a wide and impressive wingspan that spreads an average of nearly seven-feet.

Grab your camera and ready yourself for an incredible excursion through India. On this 10-day journey you will find yourself wandering through remnants of the Mughal Empire and winding along the vast streets of the new and old city of Delhi. Traipse through the mixture of bamboo brush and sal trees that press against the marshes and grasslands. You focus your camera in search of sloth bear, leopards, and tiger. Whether a professional photographer, a wildlife enthusiast, or just a curious observer, you will find beauty in the cities and the wildlife of India.
Your adventure into the world of India begins with your arrival in Delhi. The capital city brims with activity from morning to night. The colors sway with the crowds of the old city encompassed in the ancient gates that surround the bazaar. The first day is at your leisure to enjoy the sights and sounds of Delhi, whether through relaxation, exploration, or a visit to one of the bird sanctuaries located just outside of the city’s borders. The following day you will venture out along the streets with your guide to experience the diverse culture that stems from an eclectic history. Witness the exceptional architecture of religious complexes, whether modern or ancient, that continue to add artistry to the cityscape and the welcoming devoted people within. In the late afternoon you will be taken to the train to board your first class car that will have you in Jabalpur by morning.
Once in Jabalpur you will continue to Kanha National Park where the next five days will allow you to discover the depths of the forest, grassland, marshland, and foothills in an open air vehicle or on the back of an elephant. You will scour the wilds in search of the extraordinary life that fills the landscape, from leopards to Indian bison, as well as the coveted Indian tiger. On the eighth day you will return to Jabalpur to meet your overnight train to Delhi. Your final day in the capital allows you to relax in your hotel or to enjoy another day in the energetic streets before your flight home.
