    Wildest India

    Searching for tigers, elephants, and rhino in India's finest nature reserves

    Tigers are always elusive, but searching the best places, at the best time of year with one of India's best naturalists increases your chances greatly. Your guide, Avijit Sarkhel, has led JOURNEYS' tiger safaris throughout India for the past seven years. He is one of India’s leading birders and is active in various ornithological societies. Avi's passion for birds and other wildlife has made him one of the most insightful and qualified naturalist guides in the country. He is always on the lookout for the best opportunities to observe India's great wildlife riches. If you find tigers, you will also find a rich diversity of other mammals and birds. Expect this trip to be full of nature and wildlife experiences in Tadoba Tiger Reserve, the spectacular Kaziranga National Park and Manas. Avi always travels well-equipped with spotting scope, binoculars, audio recordings, playback equipment, and identification guides. He is also extremely well-read on Indian history and literature. He is fluent in English, Hindi, and Bengali. Avijit is JOURNEYS' senior naturalist in South Asia.

    Most India tiger trips focus on Rajasthan, central India, and well-known parks such as Ranthambhor and Kanha. This trip takes you to less frequently-visited tiger habitats that still offer excellent chances to see wild tigers and many other unique species, with the added benefit of encountering far fewer fellow tourists. Starting in Delhi, you'll fly into the city, Nagpur, and  drive south to the teak forests of Tadoba National Park. After three days exploring, we fly to the city of joy, Kolkata. We will explore the culture of the city before heading to Jorhat and visit the Gibbon Sanctuary where you'll see the Hoolock Gibbon, Pig-tailed Macaque, Stump-Tailed Macaque, and other primates. From Jorhat, head to  the northeastern flood plains of Kazaranga and then Brahmaputra in Assam, Manas,  a unique forest with marshy swamps, elephant grass, and damp forests and home not only to tigers, but also India's greatest diversity and numbers of large mammals, including Asiatic Elephant, One Horned Rhinoceros, Swamp Deer, Wild Buffalo, Hog Deer, and the Indo Gangetic Dolphin. Your safari by  jeep will reach deep into the huge parks. 

    We have scheduled this trip for early April when limited water in Tadoba brings tigers out in the open and possibilities of sighting tigers in Kaziranga go up significantly as summer begins.
