The National Parks in India are the biggest attraction to the wildlife lovers, but due to the restrictions involved and the immense pressure of tourism the real jungle experience is limited.
Here is an unique experience, where besides enjoying the national parks traditionally by jeeps, we move on to such many undisturbed areas where wilderness experience is at its very best.
This safari offers high adventure, opportunity to view animals of the Indian jungle, drive through rugged hills, beautiful streams and rivers, tribal villages, ancient temples and forts and home to the Royal Bengal Tiger.
There is no electricity at campsites and accommodation is basic in tents with cots. Care is taken to provide personalized service and comforts. Camp cooks turn out delicious fresh meals to be enjoyed in exhilarating surroundings.
The safari operates from November to March and the number of guests is restricted to groups of 4 /6 / 8 to provide good interaction and minimize pressure on camping out experience. All the safaris are accompanied by a team of trained experienced naturalist and a camp core team.
