Jungle Book Birds and Tigers of Central India

Sat 4 – Sat 18 December 2021

15 days


India is blessed with countless wildlife experiences, from the jungles, to the deserts, and everything in between. This tour to Central India is the perfect itinerary to enjoy India’s birds whilst giving yourself the best possible chance of seeing wild Tigers! We cover two reserves, Bandhavgarh and Kanha National Parks, with excellent populations and reliable sightings of tigers.

We start with India’s most famous bird reserve, Keoladeo National Park, more commonly known as Bharatpur, which guarantees spectacular wetland birding. A boat ride along the Chambal river, the best place in India to see the fish-eating crocodile Gharial, Ganges River Dolphin, and highly threatened birds including Indian Skimmer. It’s not just wildlife on this tour either, for from Agra we include two Indian must-dos: a visit to the majestic Taj Mahal, followed by the Indian Railways experience with an overnight sleeper train.
