Indian Wildlife Luxury Safari: Delhi to Jabalpur

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 6,470

Meet the wildlife of one of the world’s most diverse countries on this spectacular journey.


This 8-day round trip from Delhi starts by immersing you in India’s frantic capital, then takes you onward to spectacular wildlife adventures.

Delhi is a centre for India’s politics, culture and history, but it can also overload the senses. Take your first day at leisure to adapt, then enjoy a full day tour to get the most out of the city. This includes visits to the India Gate, the Qutub Minar, the Presidential Palace, the tomb of Humayun, India’s largest mosque, and the Raj Ghat, the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. You’ll stay at the luxurious Oberoi New Delhi, which embraces all of India’s beauty and tradition while offering respite from Delhi’s frantic pace.

Leave the big city behind as you’re transferred to Khajurho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognised for its beautiful Hindu and Jain temples. In the afternoon, go on to Panna National Park, where you can relax in preparation for your tiger safari. A game drive takes you through the Park’s tropical forests to see sloths, leopards, sambar, wild boar, and if you’re very lucky, elusive tigers. Spend your downtime taking a guided bird-spotting walk, or relaxing in your lodge’s infinity pool.

In case you did miss the big cats, you’ll get another chance to see them at Bandhavgarh National Park. Enjoy a traditional Indian breakfast on your morning game drive. Then, while the animals are sleeping away their afternoon, recharge with an invigorating massage or leisurely walk along the jungle paths. More delicious local cuisine awaits you for dinner each day.

A late afternoon flight from Jabalpur returns you to Delhi on your final day.
