The Wildlife Highlights of India
The impressive diversity of India’s wildlife and natural habitats is reflected in this extraordinary itinerary. You will visit some of the country’s less-known wildlife reserves which nevertheless offer superlative wildlife viewing, while staying in comfortable lodges. Start by tracking the endangered Indian one- horned rhinoceros grazing alongside water buffalo, elephants, wild boar and herds of deer in the grasslands and swamps of Kaziranga in Assam. Then, moving to the centre of the country, enjoy the wildlife of the rugged hills and teak forests of Tadoba and Satpura National Parks. Here there will be high chances of encounters with the regal Bengal tiger and impressive gaur, and the possibility of sightings of sloth bears, Asian wild dogs and leopards among a plethora of other mammals, birds, reptiles and butterflies. Few Indian wildlife tours can offer so much to the wildlife enthusiast while avoiding the more popular (and hence crowded) reserves.
