When you think of Indian wildlife it is impossible not to picture the majestic Tiger, and for an unforgettable experience Central India has to be the destination. This is the land made famous by Rudyard Kipling, and when you see a hunting pack of Indian Wild Dog, or herds of Barasingha Swamp Deer in the maidans (meadows) of national parks such as Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Pench and Panna, you’ll really experience your own Jungle Book.
