Our tiger travel specialist recommends …
"Over the past two decades Just Tigers has experienced unparalleled sightings. The itinerary includes 14 game drives and a visit to the Taj Mahal. Since we began the tour we've had 100% sightings! The newer Tiger Direct
itinerary encompasses less travel and is experiencing similar success.”

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Tiger HOLIDAYS
You surpassed our already high expectations. The Tiger sightings at Tadoba were excellent and all of the parks we visited were a delight. The trip was well organised, efficient and of high quality in every way.
We really enjoyed the trip. Everything was organised very well for us and the Indian staff and guides were all extremely efficient, friendly and helpful.
A fascinating and memorable experience that exceeded all our expectations. The tour leader was Harish Sharma, what a gem you have there! He was professional, polite and pleasant throughout our whole time with him. What a great knowledge he has, mammals, reptiles, bird life, Indian history, mythology, he could speak freely on all these and we were captivated by him. A great asset and credit to the Naturetrek company. On occasions he was assertive when he needed to be, with local guides, drivers and porters, always having our best interests in mind, and influencing them to ensure we as the guests got the best out of it. Our main objective for the trip was to view the magnificent tiger in its natural surroundings, and that was achieved - in fact we had 7 sightings on 3 different drives - indeed on one occasion we were the only vehicle to view, and were only about thirty metres from the tiger on a path before it "strolled" into the forest. We were also lucky enough to see the leopard and sloth bear as well as the "usual" Samber, Spotted Deer, Wild Boar, bison, monkeys and all the different bird life. The trip to Agra was also very memorable, the guide Tarun was very knowledgeable and informative for the whole time he was with us, we learnt a great deal about the Taj Mahal, Baby Taj and Agra Fort - another great day.
