Wildlife holiday of India visiting Pench, Kanha and Satpura - the path less travelled!
14 days from £3390*
India wildlife tour for those keen to explore the path less travelled, but still enjoy an incredible variety of Indian wildlife.
Wildlife Trails staff visit India every year to explore up and coming National Parks, enjoy exhilarating tiger safaris and work on our charity projects in Ranthambhore. We already knew a lot about Kanha and the more relaxed and less touristy approach to wildlife viewing at this park. We now wanted other locations with a similar ambiance that could also deliver with the quality of lodges and wildlife guides that our clients have come to expect. By hand picking lodges we have personally visited and meeting the owners and guides, we can promote this 3 park combination with absolute confidence. Good chances to see tiger, sloth bear, leopard, gaur and wild dog (Dhole), while enjoying the best Indian wildlife lodges. You could complete the ‘path less travelled’ route with some exploration in and around Bhopal, from the Neolithic cave paintings at Bhimbetka to the stupas, monastic complexes, caves and Buddhist relics at Sanchi, and Udaigiri, dating from 300BC through to the 12th Century. A great end to your India wildlife tour.
