How this holiday helps
This holiday does what it says on the tin. We take you to see the highlight of the Taj Mahal plus give you a tour of Delhi, but then you’ll have time to explore India’s wildlife and nature in three wonderful parks. Chambal is a little-known yet gorgeous small river sanctuary, Satpura is a lovely reserve with good wildlife and excellent chances for walking (unusual in India), and Bandhavgarh is of course famous for its wildlife including tigers too. Two lodges particularly stand out on this trip as really making a difference to their local environments.
