There are many trips to India on the market, but this is especially set up for wildlife photographers who also like to appreciate and photograph the culture of the countries you visit.  Some of the highlights of the safari include

 

  • Two different tiger reserves, Ranthambore and Tadoba, both of which offer excellent and frequent tiger encounters, plus an abundance of other wildlife, including leopard and sloth bear, and are extremely photogenic in their own right.  

 

  • We will also be heading into little known nearby reserves to track down birdlife and species which don’t reside in the major parks. These excursions will include 2 scenic boat trips, nocturnal species drive and other bespoke experiences.  We will have 2 safari jeeps, so will have only have maximum 3 clients in each for maximum photography access.

 

  • February - March is an exceptional time of year to visit India's tiger parks as it is before the great heat of April/May sets in (excess of 40C then) but late enough for the foliage to have died back a little for good visibility and shots. This is also the time that migratory birds swell the local population dramatically. 

 

  • We always think it's important to include a cultural dimension in the trip, so we will also visit rural villages where tribal life hasn’t changed for centuries, and old towns with wonderful history, architecture, temples, forts, craft traditions and markets

 

  • Also available: a fantastic extension to this trip takes us on a bespoke leopard safari and to experience Holi - India's most vibrant festival - in the breathtaking city of Udaipur.  

 

  • Our accommodation will be a diverse range in lodges, tented accommodation, a fort, haveli and hotels to enable us to access the very best wildlife encounters with the very best guides and to soak up the atmosphere of the towns we visit.

 

  • The safari is fully ATOL and ABTA bonded through Wildlife Trails who are a UK based AITO operator specialising in India.

 

  • Option to visit iconic Agra: sunrise and sunset photography sessions of the Taj Mahal, city tour
    and visit sloth bear & elephant sanctuaries
