Highlights

  • Start your India safari in Mumbai, the home of Bollywood and a cultural melting pot. Explore the city alongside your private guide visiting highlights like the Gateway of India, Prince of Wales Museum, High Court of Bombay, the famous Dabbawalas at Victoria Terminus Station, Marine Drive, and Dhobi Ghat-the world's largest outdoor laundry.
  • Dive into life in Mumbai beyond its top sites with a walking tour through through Khotachiwada, a small hamlet located in Girgaum, known for its Portuguese-style colorful houses where you’ll feel like you stepped into a time machine and have been transported back in time to 18th century Goa. Alongside your guide, enjoy tea with one of the home owners and learn more about the protected historical precinct that now faces the threat of rapid urbanization and the movement to convert the houses to high-rise buildings.
  • Safari in three of India’s top wildlife reserves, each with distinct landscapes and ecosystems. Feel as though you’ve stepped into the pages of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book”
  • Track India’s famed tigers through the parks as well as a diversity of unique wildlife species: Cheetal (Spotted Deer), Sambar, Leopard, Tiger, Jungle Cat, Dhole (Wild Dog), Sloth Bear, Wild Boar, Fox, Porcupine, and python, as well as the last remaining Barasingha (Swamp Deer)
  • In addition to morning and afternoon game drives, engage with the local communities in Pench with the option for an overnight in the village. Nature walks offer an excellent opportunity to spot the parks’ 250+ bird species
