    1. Dear Caroline,


      It indeed is a dream trip for all the wildlife enthusiasts – a must have trip..

  1. My friends in India tell me that you would be very lucky to see a tiger, though that’s more than made up for by the huge range of other wildlife, especially birds, that you see on tours like this one.

    1. Been to all wildlife parks described in this blog. Personally had several encounters with tigers besides other wildlife. One thing for sure I can say is that if you visit Bandhavgarh you will surely get to meet a tiger. Happy travels and happy viewing,

    2. Putting my geography hat on, a lot of India’s appeal is the huge diversity. From the snowy mountainous north to the steaming tropical south, India has so many different habitats.

    3. As A Jhali B has put, Bandhavgarh has got the highest density of tigers and you should see a Tiger there. At other parks, it is pure luck. If you do 3-4 safaris then your chances of seeing a Tiger increase to a great extent. As Tim has put,its not only tigers but other animals and birds are great to watch as well..

  2. Those who’ve visited India usually fall in love with the country, it has got everything that you would want from a travel adventure. Yes, travel can be hard work but the rewards are unlike any other country I’ve ever visited.

  3. Delhi is really underrated as a travel destination. I’d been there on business and got a sense of its potential.

    I booked a week’s holiday there for my wife and I. We never left the city and never ran out of things to do.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Delhi has many experiences on offer right from Old Delhi to food tours, cycle tours, heritage monuments and much more. It is only because of its traffic and winter smog travelers tend to spend less time. But I agree, Delhi has got some great experiences

  4. Having been a Trip leader for 15 Years and then someone who promoted Wildlife to India for the next 15. All destinations you have covered are great and would give amazing Wildlife experience to any wildlife enthusiast.
