Tigers & the Taj Mahal!
INDIA WILDLIFE SAFARI
March 14-28, 2020

Dear Travelers and Friends:
We invite you to join us as we explore the wildlife and wild places of India on our popular India Wildlife Safari! This trip is a magnificent introduction to the national parks, sanctuaries, and exquisite cultural antiquities of India, from tigers to the Taj Mahal, including three premiere
national parks.

This year we will return to Kanha National Park where we will stay in an exquisite lodge, as we do at Bharatpur. Both of these lodges were built by our friend and colleague who descends from Indian royalty on his family’s historic property. Please see the lodge photos below.

Leading the safari will be our excellent Indian naturalist. He will be joined by local guides, park wardens, and other guests to give different perspectives and insights into the Indian subcontinent.

We’ll begin our India Safari in Delhi, and will then go by train to Ranthambore National Park (famous for its tiger populations, diverse species of deer, large crocodiles, waterfowl and birds) where we’ll stay in comfortable,
rustic stone cottages.

We will take the train to Bharatpur Sanctuary, the best place to see birds in India. Herons, egrets, and ibis line the waterways. Vultures, hawks, falcons and many flycatchers perch in isolated trees. On forest walks, we will look for colorful butterflies, flowers, and iridescent pheasants.

Near Bharatpur are the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur, two of the most famous sites in India. Both are intriguing and we’ll have time to savor the beauty, artistry, and cultural significance of each site.

We will then fly to Raipur where we will drive to our exquisite lodge at Kanha National Park. This is one of the largest parks in India and is also part of Project Tiger, one of India’s most important conservation efforts. We will travel by jeep and elephant (for tiger viewing) into a variety of habitats for wildlife viewing.

All of this, and more, awaits you in India! We invite you to join us as we explore this magical land of intrigue.

Sincerely,
