Tiger Safari in India and Nepal with Stephen Mills

7th - 21st November 2009

Join tiger specialist Stephen Mills on this tailor-made luxury safari to India & Nepal in search of Bengal tigers in the wild

TigerOn this special tiger safari you will be accompanying Stephen Mills to Bandhavgarh and Royal Bardia National Parks, which are considered the best places to see tigers in India and Nepal. Together, you will track tigers riding elephants and in jeeps and dugout canoes. Tracking tigers immerses you in to the heart of the jungle and provides the opportunity to enjoy many other species. Seeing a herd of sambar emerging into a sunlit glade or discovering elephants playing in water as the sun sets and bathes them in gold, the haunting cry of the peacock, the rustling of wild boar, and finally the alarm call of the muntjac deer.. then a moment of fear and excitement as you see the most extraordinarily beautiful and exotic big cat of the jungle. Despite their elusive nature everyone who has joined Stephen on all twelve of our BBC Wildlife reader holidays to India has seen tigers – testimony that joining a leading tiger specialist greatly enhances your safari experience.

Bandhavgarh National Park – a key Project Tiger reserve that is currently considered the best place in India for seeing tigers. In addition leopards, sloth bear, gaur, nilgar, chausingha, wild boar, jackal, chital, muntjac and sambar deer, rhesus macaque, black-faced langur, jungle cat and hyenas, as well as 300 bird species and many butterfly species.
