India is incredible in size and diversity. We have a series of safaris covering India and this exciting one focuses on 3 National Parks right in the middle of the country. Explore these diverse parks and immerse yourself within a very special wildlife experience.
In central India lies 4 safari regions known for producing some of the best tiger sightings in India. In addition to this the wealth of wildlife that occur there such as leopard, sloth bear & wild dogs will fulfil all your needs and the diverse & scenic landscapes steeped in beauty & history will provide a fantastic backdrop to it all. Bandhavgarh, Pench, Tadoba and Kanha National Parks are all located in close proximity to one another. They offer a diverse & exciting safari experience.
This safari takes place at the end of the dry season during the month of April. This affords you the very best chance of seeing tigers frequenting the remaining waterholes. This exciting safari experience to India’s central wildlife reserves presents you with an incredible opportunity to see & experience the wild riches that India has to offer, all whilst staying in fantastic safari camps & being hosted by highly experienced guides & naturalists.
