Wildlife holidays in India

Tell me about India …

Wildlife tours to India take the wildlife enthusiast to a diverse and abundant land. The Indian subcontinent embraces an enormous range of habitats extending from the spectacular peaks of the Himalayas in the north, through forests, lakes and deserts to the moist Nilgiri hills in the south of the country where the shoreline is lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

India is an exciting destination in other respects. The abundant archaeological reminders of the country’s extraordinary history and the fascination of becoming immersed into a completely unique and complex culture are reasons enough to visit India. However, for anyone interested in natural history the attractions of an India wildlife holiday are simply too great to resist.

Our India specialist recommends...

"There is no greater wildlife encounter than that with a Tiger, so why not join us on our ‘Tiger Direct’ holiday which flies you right into the heart of ‘Tiger Country’. Our ‘Brahmaputra Cruise’ is a magical 14-day holiday in Assam, taking in the beautiful landscapes, fascinating culture and the rare wildlife found along the river banks." - Rajan Jolly

What’s special about India’s wildlife?

Colourful and diverse are two adjectives often applied to India and both perfectly describe the flora and fauna seen on our wildlife tours to India.

India is home to 350 species of mammal, including the magnificent tiger, nearly 1,300 species of birds and 600 species of reptiles and amphibians plus a myriad of insects and flowers. Little wonder that many enthusiasts consider an India wildlife tour one of their ultimate lifetime trips.

Eight tigers, 13 sloth bears, 2 packs of wild dogs, 4 sorts of deer, and fabulous birds. What more could we ask! But I have to say what really made it was meeting Nick. We felt really privileged. You don’t need me to tell you how fantastic he is – so knowledgeable, wildlife and nature exuding from every pore, brilliantly entertaining and is so personable. We tried to persuade him to become a presenter on the BBC to follow in David Attenborough’s footsteps. He would be superb!

India - Tiger Direct!

I would like to thank Naturetrek and particularly Rajan Jolly for a particularly well organised trip. All the transport was organised without unnecessary delays, the accommodation and food was excellent with both the Tiger Corridor and Kanha Jungle Lodge giving great detail to comfort. The park entrances/permits, transport and guides into both Pench and Kanha Tiger Reservers were excellent in organisation and quality, added to which the experience within the reserves was excellent and the exhilaration of seeing my first Tiger will live long in my memory. I would like to express my particular thanks to Harish Sharma who made the holiday particularly pleasant, his constant efforts to ensure everything was in order, his pleasant demeanour and his particular knowledge of the birds, bird call, mammals and mammal calls made for a most memorable trip. Praise must also go to Durgesh Singh who again tirelessly worked to ensure the holiday went smoothly.
All four parks were delightful; varied landscapes and target species. The lodges were equally charming and set in lovely surroundings; staff were attentive and helpful; food was excellent.
