India Wildlife Safaris and Tours Overview

Why India Wildlife Reserves Safaris & Tours: India’s wildlife reserves are a haven for many remarkable and endangered creatures like tiger, rhino, leopard and sloth bear. A wildlife safari combines beautifully with India’s cultural highlights.

When to Go:
Bandhavgarh National Park:
Feb – May is the best time for gameviewing; the park is closed from early Jul to end Oct.
Corbett National Park: The best time for tiger viewing is the dry months of Apr – mid Jun, when wildlife come out in search of water. The best birdwatching is between Dec – Feb.
Ranthambhore National Park: The best time to go is in winter (Dec – Feb) and Mar/Apr. The park is closed during the monsoon; it reopens on 1 Oct.
Kanha National Park: Best time to visit is Mar – Jun. Park closed during monsoon from beginning Jul – Oct. Also closed midday to give respite to wildlife.
Kaziranga National Park: Best visited from mid-November to early April. The low-lying grasslands are flooded during the monsoon. During the floods, the animals migrate to higher, drier ground.
Periyar and Nagarhole National Parks: The best time to go is in the cool dry months (Oct- Feb) and during the hotter months of Mar/Apr for elephant viewing. The park is open during the monsoon period (June – Sep); but it is not the best season for spotting game.

Combine With: Safaris to India’s wildlife reserves are usually part of a general sightseeing itinerary which include India’s many cultural and historic attractions. They can also be combined with the wildlife parks of neighouring Nepal, Bhutan or Sri Lanka.

Getting There: The national parks of northern India can be accessed from major cities such as Delhi, Jaipur and Guwahati (Kaziranga). In South India, Periyar and Nagarhole/Kabini can be reached from Kochi, usually as part of an overland itinerary.

What Clients Say

“As a traveller who enjoys both culture & especially adventure, Taj Temples & Tigers not only met but exceeded my expectations. I found India to be a fascinating country of many contrasts and the balance of this tour was just right. The planning by Natural Focus Tours was absolutely impeccable.”
“This particular trip was as smooth as silk, thanks to the efforts put in by Annie, AKA Anne-Marie Zambelli, our larger than life Tour Escort. I was goggle eyed at the level of care she provided, not to mention her first aid kit! It was an absolute joy to be able to sit back and just enjoy the trip without having to worry about any of the details in what is a fairly chaotic country. Suffice to say, thank you Natural Focus for a wonderful experience.”
“Natural Focus organised the holiday for us, nothing was a problem, they gave us excellent advice about where to visit and how long we needed at each destination. It was a fabulous holiday with something for everyone within a short travelling distance. Our guide was with us for the entire trip; he was a delight, with a great sense of humour and an ability to track down anything, especially good food.”
