Wildlife holidays in 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."
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.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR India HOLIDAYS
A most enjoyable holiday with a really good mix of wildlife and culture. All staff and guides did a wonderful job. Can’t praise too highly the enthusiastic and cheerful guides.
On board RV Charaidew more than 5 star in levels of cleanliness and service. Between us we have been on many trips but both agree that this is our best to date. Very interesting, exciting and yet also relaxing, something we have not experienced before. Naturetrek guides are always the best, what can one say about Sujan that I'm sure has not already been said, larger than life and excellent naturalist, camera and binocular repairer and just great company, a star. The 3 local guides were a delight, Imran with his wealth of local knowledge, and their newest guide Mohan was spectacular, realising that we were really interested in everything, he even managed to spot a beautiful frog in leaf litter as we were driving along, real hawk eyes and again they were so helpful and friendly.
A superb holiday; food, accommodation, experience and of course the wildlife sightings were fantastic. Great Tiger, Leopard, Wild Dog and Slot Bear sightings and fantastic birds. The parks were a delight to be in. Transfer from and to each venue was smooth and hassle free. Food was excellent, particularly Tadoba and Kanha. Accommodation was great, particularly Kanha (a beautiful place), and the service was great. Nick's attention to detail and general support was first class and his knowledge was outstanding, not just the wildlife, but his knowledge of India was immense. Park guides were generally great, and Vinod in Kanha was outstanding. His knowledge, communication skills and personality were brilliant. He enhanced every drive we had with him. Being in the Indian jungle and listening and reacting to the sounds and calls was a fantastic experience. We were particularly lucky to have the same interests and sense of humour in the group that were in our jeep so very pleased we were able to stay together for the whole tour. Sudeep on the final day also arranged for us to visit 3 temples in Tadoba which was excellent and made a perfect end to the trip. He was very attentive and knowledgeable, and went out of this way to accommodate us. Overall first class experience.
