Destinations covered: New Delhi | Jaipur | Ranthambhore | Bharatpur | Agra | Khajuraho | Bandhavgarh | New Delhi | Guwahati | Kaziranga | Guwahati | New Delhi

India has some of the finest south Asian wildlife areas with a rich variety of habitats and forests.  The interesting fact, that it’s only in the Indian subcontinent that both the tiger & the lion can be found, is a tiny indicator of the vast variety of habitats available. Just as tiger hunts alone and duck behind cover, needs forest, the lion requires good visibility to pounce on their prey, needs savannah grasslands.

Out of approx. 570 National Parks & Wildlife Sanctuaries, five are included in the list of twenty eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India. And these are Nanda Devi National Park, KeoladeoBharatpur Bird Sanctuary, Kaziranga National Park, Manas Wildlife Sanctuary and Sundarbans National Park. Other premier national parks are Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Ranthambore, Corbett, Madhumalai&Periyar.

The marshy land of Bharatpur National Park plays host to thousands of winter migrating Aves between October to March. With over 300 species, it is recognized as one of its kind in the world.

The semi arid forest of Ranthambore and Sal-Bamboo mixed forest of Bandhavgarh are among the few places in India where you have the chance to see the elusive Tiger in broad daylight; along with a rich assortment of mammals, notably Nilgai, Cheetal and Sambar.

Kaziranga is one of the most beautiful reserves with the unique mixture of elephant grasslands, lush swamps, patches of dense forest with majestic Silk Cotton trees and distant hills looming large. This is the home of the Great Indian one - horned rhino, wild buffalo, hog deer, swamp deer, elephant, tiger and exceedingly rich bird-life. This rich variety of flora and fauna of Kaziranga are any naturalist's delight.

Best time to visit the above sanctuaries is between November to March.

A classical itinerary covers wildlife areas alternate with the colours of Jaipur, the magic of TajMahal and the exquisite temples of Khajuraho.

In the fabled deer park at Sarnath, the Buddha preached his first sermon. He then travelled widely preaching his philosophy. At the age of 80, in the forest of Kushinagar, he entered the state of perfect tranquility - and attained "Mahaparinirvana".

To unravel the complex truths of life, we follow the footsteps of Lord Buddha and cover the Sacred Sites associated with him - Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Sarnath, Kushinagar, Sravasti, Vaishali and Kapilvastu.

Destinations covered: New Delhi | Allahabad | Lakshagrih | Kheira | Vindhyachal | Sitamarhi | Sindra Island | Mirzapur | Varanasi

The Ganges or the River Ganga is not only known for its significance as the holiest river of India but also for the ultimate adventure it bestows on water sports like river rafting & canoeing while in Himalayas. However, much later after it’s descending on the plains, a lesser known and equally exciting adventure is Sailing on the Ganges.

 

The Ganga is virtually synonymous with Indian civilisation. As Pandit Nehru had once said, “From her source to the sea, from old times to new, the Ganga is the story of India’s civilisation.” The Ganga basin makes up almost a third of India’s land area and its rich soil is home of millions of people.  Not only that, it is home to more than 140 fish species, 90 amphibian species and the endangered Ganga river dolphin. During its course it has spawned many great cities.

Destinations covered: Rajasthan | Bikaner | Jaipur | Jaisalmer | Jodhpur

Camel Safari is popular in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan-the Western part of India. It is not just a safari-it’s about riding through sun, sand and serenity. It may not be as adventurous as mountain climbing, trekking or river running, yet none-the-less, it is an adventure to cherish & remember.  A rich culture of this living desert is best explored on camelback. 

 

The ideal duration of Camel Safari is from 3 to 4 days while it fits in between the visits to the three historic cities of Bikaner, Jaisalmer & Jodhpur-known as the ‘Great Desert Triangle’.  The camel trek passes through the open plains, short grasslands, shifting sand dunes in the vast desert dotted with small villages &Dhanis-a sort of farmhouses away from the main village. During the course you may come across many sheep/camel herders and a bit of wild life-Antelopes (Black Buck, Chinkara Gazelle & Nilgai), desert hare, desert fox etc.

Horse safari is considered an exclusive vacation and a more exciting variation of the camel safari. Though it is organised in the same state of Rajasthan, the terrain is completely different. It passes close to villages, ruined historical monuments, temples, lakes and a wildlife sanctuary-all surrounding the Aravalli hills. Well trained Marwari Horses-an indigenous breed of the Mewar region of Rajasthan, are provided with English saddlery.
