Best time to go: November - June (although it gets hot in May and June, but sightings are superb)
Best for: Wildlife & Safari, First Time Visitor
The remote regions of central India contain a patchwork of national parks which have allowed India’s endemic wildlife to thrive. By combining three parks, you get to see a diversity of wildlife experiences ensuring you have an excellent chance of both seeing tiger, but also the other amazing species who live in India’s wildlife sanctuaries. This private tour combines the great parks of Bandhvagarh and Kanha, and we can tailor the itinerary should you want to add on other parks such as Panna or Pench for example. You can opt for luxury African style lodges, or more simple boutique wildlife lodges, or mix and match the two.
Fly into Delhi for the night and then fly to Jabalpur before driving to Bandhavgarh, just a three hour drive away. Bandhavgarh is a beautiful park, with a old fort at its centre, great for seeing birds of prey swirling below you. The park is one of the best places to see tiger, and of course we know you want a sighting, so Bandhavgarh is a good place to start so you can then sit back and allow the diversity of other wildlife to come to the fore. Move to Kanha, about a five-hour drive away, and probably a better park to see leopard. You can also see gaur, another favourite prey for the tiger.
Drive back to Jabalpur for a flight to Mumbai where you spend the night before returning home.
