15 Night Wildcats of Western India – A private Journey

Mumbai, Udaipur, Bera, Siana, Dasada, Velavadar, Gir and Bhuj

India is home to 10% of the world’s wildlife species. The main reason for this is that the country has a huge diversity of landscapes that have helped evolve a huge variety of species. Literally any landscape that you can think of anywhere in the world – there is something similar here. This has given rise to unique and rare mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects and the often-forgotten marine life.

Western India is the more arid and dry landscape of India with a large part of Gujarat and Rajasthan being part of the Thar Desert. The region offers a diverse landscape from dry deciduous forests, scrub jungles to savanna grassland to huge flat saltpans.

We have planned this journey to showcase deciduous jungles at Gir – the last bastion of the Asiatic lion, savanna-like grasslands of Velavadar suited for the jungle cat, Saltpans of the Little and the Greater Rann of Kutch makes for a perfect desert cat habitat and the scrub forests and hilly outcrops of Siana & Jawai a perfect habitat for rusty-spotted cat and the leopard.

These regions also highlight other unique species such as the striped hyena, Indian grey wolf, Asiatic wild ass and the blackbuck antelope.

Best time to travel: November – March
