This is our group tour - we also have a tailor-made Jungle Book Tour for those who prefer to travel privately.
The jungles and hills of Central India provide a stunning backdrop for 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, we’ll follow in the footsteps of Rudyard Kipling and Baloo as we search for the elusive and majestic Bengal tiger.
Beginning in Mumbai we’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the cultural and historic highlights of old Bombay before flying on to Nagpur, our 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 train journey on to Pipariya brings us to the Satpura National Park. Here we’ll have the 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.
ALL OUR SMALL GROUP TOURS HAVE NO LOCAL PAYMENTS, HIDDEN EXTRAS OR COMPULSORY SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS.

Escape the mayhem of Leh’s Tibetan market with a beer at one of the many secret rooftop bars. Don’t be surprised if your beer comes in a teapot, its illegal to serve it before 6pm and this is how they get around it!
