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.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR India HOLIDAYS
What a fantastic trip! We saw tigers on 4 days out of 6, including following one for 25 minutes; the other wildlife was equally brilliant. Accommodation and food was food was superb and logistics were very well organised – particularly having a hotel room on the final night in Nagpur. Nick is a fantastic tour leader. His wildlife knowledge is staggering and his interpersonal skills make him perfect for the role. Thanks a lot all!
We had a fabulous time and saw everything we hoped to see, and more. But even if we hadn't, the holiday was enhanced considerably by Indrajit, an extremely likeable man who knew the answer to everything we asked him, kept us all enthralled and had a great sense of humour. As novice adventurers, he 'held our hands' every step of the way too, and was always able to put us at ease. Also, we knew very little about birds beforehand but, thanks to Indrajit, now have a keen interest and considerably more knowledge about India's birdlife.
Sujan's ability, together with Imran and the local guides, to spot and identify species of birds and mammals, then to pinpoint them in the telescope, enabled us to see clearly what we otherwise might have missed, especially since my skill with binoculars is lacking! His humour and wealth of stories kept us entertained and we commend his organisational talents.
