Wildlife of India: Bandhavgarh & Kanha

per person

On this journey you will get a good look into the local heritage and culture in India’s capital city Delhi and into the realm of nature where a landscape of powerful rivers, fabled jungles and intriguing wildlife awaits you. The wildlife reserves in Central India have many Bengal Tigers in their native territory. They are far less crowded than other popular reserves with even more to see.

This is an ideal journey for those passionate about nature or in it just for the experience. On this 8-Day tour you explore two of Central India’s top national parks with multiple safari drives in open 4×4 jeeps.
