India

The Ultimate Combination of Wildlife Safari & Culture
Our award-winning India journeys eliminate the need to choose between India's spiritually rich cultural experiences or its classic wildlife safaris --Wild Planet's Leopards, Tigers and Palaces itineraries provides the very best of both.

Nature's Exotic Jewel
Wild Planet offers the most comprehensive 13-day and 19-day multi-safaris available in India. Our wildlife expertise shines at India's top national parks, wildlife reserves and UNESCO World Heritage Sites where you can thrill to the sight of wild leopards, rhinoceros, elephants, tigers and more. Our 19-day program includes safaris in 5 very different National Parks and wildlife reserves, by jeep, elephant-back and camel-back. Only Wild Planet offers a combination of safaris in such a wide variety of eco-systems, for the best wildlife experience possible.

A Cultural and Spiritual Journey
In addition to unsurpassed wildlife viewing, you'll immerse yourself in India's cultural and spiritual melange of sights, scents and colors--the brilliant reds and bold saffron of tribal costumes, the rose pink of ancient palaces, the soft indigo rooftops of fabled cities, the tawny browns of vast deserts, and the unforgettable black and orange stripes of the tiger. You'll feel transported back to a romantic era of turbaned warriors, valiant princes, and sultry harems as you explore the golden-hued desert strongholds of Jodhpur and Jaipur, the magnificent Taj Mahal, the remote villages of Rajasthan and off-the-beaten-track Assam, the Bishnois sect of Hindus who revere wildlife as part of their religion, and the contrasting modern bustle of Delhi. No other company offers anything like this!

Stay in Princely Style
Wild Planet's India trips allow you to experience the dramatic rivers, fabled jungles and profuse big game of this exotic jewel. You'll stay in princely style at accommodations ranging from 4 & 5 star hotels to top game lodges and classic safari tented camps. You can even choose to stay at a former maharajas' palace which has now been converted into a magnificent hotel! You simply won't find an itinerary as remarkable as ours, or one that so thoroughly explores so many facets of India's wildlife, culture and spirituality. Our 19-day or 13 day Ultimate Wildlife Safari: Leopards, Tigers and Palaces journeys are available in your choice of scheduled group departures or you can go on your own on a date of your own choosing with minimum of 2 people. We also offer custom tours for families, groups and special interests including ashrams and yoga. If you don't see what you're looking for, please give us a call!
