Classic Central India

The jungles and hills of Central India provide a stunning backdrop to this journey back to childhood. These rich landscapes provided the inspiration for the stories of the ‘man cub’, Mowgli and the fearsome Sher Khan, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Toomai of the Elephants. Here, amongst some of the largest and most pristine national parks in India, you’ll follow in the footsteps of Rudyard Kipling and Baloo, as you search out the elusive and majestic Bengal tiger in luxury and style – with nearly all meals included.

Beginning in Mumbai, you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy the cultural and historic highlights of old Bombay, before flying on to Nagpur, your gateway into Tadoba and Kanha National Parks, two of India’s most famous tiger reserves. Morning and afternoon game drives provide an ideal opportunity to search for tigers, leopards and a myriad of other wildlife, before a drive journey on to Satpura National Park.

Here you’ll have a chance to enjoy walking safaris and river trips, before continuing on to Bhopal, where the magnificent UNESCO treasures of the Bhimbetka cave paintings and the stunning Buddhist stupas at Sanchi await. A final stop at the stunning Ahilya Fort on the banks of the Narmada River offers a suitably atmospheric finale to this wonderful Central Indian odyssey.
