Tigers and Culture is a wonderful opportunity to combine a memorable wildlife experience with the charming elegance of Jaipur and the stunning beauty of one of the world’s most famous buildings.

From your arrival in Delhi, throughout your time in the jungle and sightseeing to your departure, you will be looked after by experienced and knowledgeable guides and will discover much about not only the wildlife, but the heritage and way of life in India.

Bandhavgarh National Park is set among the truly spectacular Vindhya Hills and has a well deserved reputation for a diverse fauna list among which the tiger is particularly famed with a population density that is among the highest in India. Despite being a large park it an intimate feel with contrasting topography and landscapes.
