Luxury Wildlife & Safari Holidays in India

The vastness of India stretches from the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas through the savannah-like scrub in north-central India’s Madhya Pradesh and to the verdant jungles in the south. Within this varied subcontinent is almost 90,000 living species, including 1,250 kinds of birds. The question is not whether to travel to India on a wildlife safari holiday, but which part of the country to see; elephants in the south, tigers in the centre, or leopards in the north? Let Lightfoot Travel guide your way.

The inspiration behind Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, Pench National Park is a well known tiger reserve.  You could also spot langurs, spotted deer, jackals, wild boars, sambar, and wild dogs on a guided nature safari.

Located in the Cardamom Hills, Periyar National Park - also known as Periyay Tiger Reserve - is one of India’s best locations for witnessing elephants, tigers, bison, wild boar, oxen, deer, and a variety of birds.
