This may be the grandest wildlife adventure anywhere for those who are lovers of the BIG CATS - lions, tigers, and leopards!
India is not typically known for having lions, as they are normally associated with an African safari. Lions at one time roamed from southern Africa all the way to India. That band no longer exists and today lions typically roam only south of the Sahara, in south and east Africa. There is, however, a small pocket in northwestern India where lions still roam in the wild. This remote and seldom-visited region features Gir National Park where we will search for the rare Asiatic Lion.
Our itinerary includes visits to three national parks in search of a myriad of wildlife including the Royal Bengal Tiger. Seeing a tiger in the wild must certainly rank as a true wildlife highlight for even the most seasoned traveler. We also search for a third big cat, near the area of Bera - the leopard. We challenge anyone to find a wildlife safari where you can find lions, tigers, and leopards!
Our adventure also includes New Delhi, Mumbai, Udaipur, Ahamdabad, Jawai Dam, and visits the famous Temples of Ramtek, Ranakpur, Swaminarayan Akshardham & Lotus, the Jain Temples of Mt. Abu and Ranakpur and the Erotic Temples of Khajuraho.
