Expedition Highlights

  • Search for the increasingly rare Bengal tiger in Bandhavgarh National Park, formerly a maharajah’s private hunting preserve.
  • Explore the lesser-visited Satpura National Park as well as Pench—the original setting of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.  
  • Enjoy in-depth explorations of each park—traversing the forested ridges, thick bamboo, and shallow rivers; searching for wild boar, chital deer, and sambar; and keeping an eye out for the varied birdlife, such as the green bee-eater, white-bellied drongo, and plum-headed parakeet.
  • Delve into Indian culture by visiting Old and New Delhi, including the bustling market filled with everything from wedding jewels to spices.
