Itinerary Description:

Ker & Downey has been highly selective in choosing the national parks and accommodations included in this fantastic itinerary, ensuring that our guests enjoy only the very best safari experience available in India.

Begin your journey in Mumbai at the renowned Taj Mahal Palace & Tower with a tour of the fascinating financial capital of India. Visit museums, monuments, the hanging gardens, and the city’s famous holy places.

Next, fly to Nagpur, and from there, you will drive to Pench to check in at Baghvan Jungle Lodge. The lodge’s name translates to “Tiger Garden”, and the lodge itself is located a mere five minutes from Pench National Park. Spend the next two days on safari in the hills, forests, and valleys of the park, discovering the amazing flora and fauna.

Drive to Kanha National Park and your accommodations at Banjaar Tola Kanha Tented Camp. Explore the national park, the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s famous novel, The Jungle Book, and investigate the dense forest, bamboo thickets, and extensive grasslands, watching for amazing wildlife and over 200 bird species.

Continue on to Bandhavgarh and the luxurious Mahua Kothi Jungle Lodge, from where you can discover the wonders of Bandhavgarh National Park, before heading for Khajuraho for a night at Pashan Garh Panna Wilderness Lodge in Panna National Park and an exploration of the Khajuraho Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The highlight of your stay at these four lodges is the morning elephant back tiger safari (subject to tiger sighting), during which you can briefly but unobtrusively observe the local wildlife from the lofty position of your saddled behemoth’s back.

Head back to civilization and spend a few days of exploration in Delhi from your base at the Oberoi Hotel Delhi. Enjoy a spectacular tour of both Old and New Delhi before heading off to Agra for the last leg of your journey. Spend the night at the Oberoi Hotel Amarvilas, and get up early in the morning to tour the Taj Mahal at sunrise. Later, explore the city of Agra, and then fly back to Delhi for a relaxing evening at the Oberoi Hotel Gurgaon before your departing flight.
