Tiger Tiger

8 days from £1620pp plus international flights.

If you really want to see tigers in the wild, this combination of safaris in Kanha and Bandhavgarh gives you the best possible chance.

​Tribes director, Guy Marks, checked out all the main tiger parks to be certain which would give you the best opportunity of seeing tigers. From this knowledge we have designed this Tiger Tiger itinerary for those who are really keen to see a tiger in the wild. We honestly believe that this combination of Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks gives you your very best chance. Both parks are remote and are proper Indian jungle, which not only provide a great setting for a tiger safari but also have a wide variety of other Indian wildlife.

The scenery at both of these parks is just beautiful and they are different enough to make it worth visiting both in the same trip. Some people will definitely prefer Kanha to Bandhavgarh and others will favour Bandhavgarh over Kanha, but we think they are equally beautiful and both have excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.

We have found some fabulous jungle lodges which can be used for this trip, which also includes all transfers and domestic flights as well as the services of expert and experienced naturalist guides in both national parks.
