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
The guides at Satpura were outstanding. Dilip Saini was a good trip leader, well organised and knowledgeable, and I would happily go on a trip led by him in the future. I enjoyed the whole experience at Satpura, with the 'eco' accommodation, enthusiastic guides and lodge staff, and the sheer variety of activities: canoe safari, boat trip, evening/night drive, half day and whole day game drives, walk in the core zone, short walk to see the rock paintings at Churna, walks from the Forsyth Lodge. The variety of mammals, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, trees and other fauna/flora encountered all contributed to the enjoyment and interest of the trip. The relatively small number of visitors to the park, the short boat ride across the river to reach the core zone, the friendly villagers including children who photographed us with their mobiles as we drove past, made for a very special experience.
Satpura is a very special place, it is a beautiful National Park. I had a great holiday, with a lovely group.
Sujan and his organisation and briefings were really excellent. The staff on the boat were extremely helpful and the other guides looked after us very well too (including helping with butterfly ID).
