Detailed Description

The mixture of urban life and wildlife come together on this 10-day journey through Delhi and the National Parks that offer you the tremendous opportunity to see Bengal tigers in their natural habitat in India. Whether you’re an animal enthusiast or a lover of the outdoors, a botanist or an explorer, or if you just have a subtle interest to experience the mesmerizing meadows and forests of Central India, this trip was made for you. You will find yourself in the aromatic streets of Delhi’s historic monuments and journeying through swaying grasslands and encircling mountains. Let the mystical come to life, from past to present, from myth to reality. 

Your adventure begins with your welcome to Delhi. The capital city of India is awash with vivaciousness, filled with colorful clothing, jingling bangles, and aromatic spices. Spend the day exploring the fabulous ruins, many which are in continual use in some capacity today. The following day you will have at leisure, able to journey through the energetic streets before embarking on a first-class train coach en route to Katni. Once in Katni you will continue onward to Bandhavgarh National Park, home to the old Rewa State where the white tigers of Rewa were discovered. While staying in a jungle resort you will have two and a half days filled with the opportunity to experience wildlife in abundance, and without adulteration.

From barking deer to nilgai, the largest Asian antelope, the sites, sounds, and landscapes will captivate you. From Bandhavgarh you will make your way to Kanha National Park, the inspiration of The Jungle Book. You will have another two and a half days to experience the landscape as Rudyard Kipling did, including an excursion through the forestland and riverbanks on elephant back in search of Bengal tigers. After your days of scouring the jungle landscape have ended you will come to Jabalpur where an evening train will take you overnight to Delhi. You will reach the capital by morning, enjoy a delightful lunch, and have a private transfer to the airport to make your return flight home.
