• Jungle Tales Into The Wild

Through The Wilderness of Central India.

 

The heart of India is a traveller’s delight and consists of some of the most rugged and remote areas of India’s territories. Central India includes extensive jungles and is world renowned as an important Tiger habitat. Kipling set his “Jungle Book” here and, to this date, the National Parks in the heart of India, accessed by safari jeeps and on elephant back, offer a glimpse of the wild and even a chance to see the tiger in its natural habitat. From mountain forts of Gwalior to the Bundela murals of Orchha, the erotic temple sculptures of Khajuraho to the thriving forest reserves of Kanha and Bandhavgarh, there is plenty to see and do. The trip culminates at Hyderabad – the “City of the Nizams” to be pampered at the resplendent Taj Falaknuma Palace.
