Lions in India

Experience the thrill of the India jungle and its incredible diversity. Although the enigmatic tiger is the biggest draw, the rare Asiatic lion also roams this land.

This tour covers some of India’s most impressive and lesser-known national parks, with overnights in excellent jungle lodges.  Travel The Unknown is offering this unique wildlife tour at a special launch price of £2,295pp, reduced by £200, from £2,495pp.

From Delhi, travel south to Central India`s prime tiger territory -  Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks, where the chances of tiger sightings are very high. Besides jeep safaris, you will also get the chance to roam on elephant-back in Bandhavgarh, allowing you to get closer to the animals. You then board the train for Satpura, and transfer to the excellent Reni Pani Jungle Lodge. Satpura is one of India`s best-kept wildlife secrets. It is home to tigers, as well as leopards, deer, long-tailed langur monkeys and a host of birdlife. Finally, you head west to little-known Gir National Park in Gujarat, home to the only lions in Asia. Between game drives, you can also visit the nearby ancient Hindu temples. This is a wildlife adventure like no other.

Main highlights of this trip: 

- Tiger-spotting in India’s prime national parks/tiger reserves;
- Elephant-back safari in Bandhavgarh;
- Walking safari in Satpura National Park;
- Stay in rustic jungle lodges;
- Spot the rare Asiatic lion in Gir National Park, Gujarat;
- Visit ancient Hindu temples in Somnath (close to Gir).

The price of £2,295pp includes three internal flights, accommodation, ground transport, local guides, most meals (full-board in national parks), drivers, game drives and safaris, entrance fees to parks and sites, and carbon-offsetting fee.

Travel The Unknown also offers an 11-day Wildlife of North East India tour, which visits the mangrove forests in the Sunderbans and Kaziranga National Park in Assam.

As well as the set group departures, private trips can also be arranged.
