14 NIGHTS A LUXURIOUS WILDERNESS HOLIDAY – A PRIVATE JOURNEY

Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Panna Tiger Reserve, Khajuraho, Agra and Delhi

Madhya Pradesh is the true center and heartland of India. Its forests were made famous by Rudyard Kipling and many have subsequently been turned into National Parks in order to preserve their unique, rich and varied wildlife. Its better-known parks of Pench, Kanha and Bandhavgarh protect tiger, leopard, wild dog, gaur (Indian Bison), monkey and deer as well as many reptiles and birds. Some parks in Madhya Pradesh which are relatively recently discovered parks (in terms of tourism at least) are Panna and Satpura. Though not as popular as Kanha and Bandhavgarh, these parks today offer a much richer wildlife experience.

One of the things we love about this state is that much of it really does seem like the rest of India used to be one hundred years ago and when driving between destinations one is privileged to witness this. Drives go through forested areas and villages where most of the population still live in mud and thatch houses which they repaint every year, after the monsoon, in a vivid indigo blue. During November when the mustard crops are ready the brilliance of the yellow against the blue houses is wonderfully eye catching.

Its sites are treasures which are varied and captivating and include the imposing fort at Gwalior and the Scindia palace museum which houses an excellent collection of art; the hugely erotic carvings on the temples at Khajuraho and the forested temples on the river at Orchha. This tour has been planned to give you a balanced holiday experience where you explore villages, remote sites and wonderful jungles yet return in the evening to comfortable luxury lodges to relax and enjoy the sundowners, bush dinners and unwind in beautifully designed lodges which not only offers you creature comforts but also blends in well into the surrounding wilderness.

On this trip the destinations selected for your exploration are: Kanha Tiger Reserve, Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Panna Tiger Reserve, Khajuraho, Agra and Delhi.

Best time to travel: November – March
