Places Visited: Nagpur, Tadoba Tiger Reserve, Pench National Park, Satpura National Park, Mumbai
This 12-day tour concentrates on the lesser visited, emerging parks of Pench, Satpura and Tadoba, in the remote heart of India. All three offer exceptional birding, as well as excellent chances of spotting tiger and leopard – without the crowds of busier reserves further north. The locations may be remote, but the facilities on offer are world-class, from the lodges to the guides, cuisine and transport. Staying in such far-flung part of the country will also enable you to experience rural life at close quarters. Village visits are fascinating, revealing a way of life that couldn’t be more different from those led by inhabitants of the hub cities you’ll be flying through to reach the parks.
