The Royal Expeditions wildlife safari experience in India continues to be unmatched, as we have been highly selective about the national parks on offer and the choice of accommodations. The lodges that Royal Expeditions chooses for your sojourn have all modern comforts, each catering to only a small number of guests at any one time. In addition, they have knowledgeable English- speaking resident naturalists who accompany guests, so that you can enjoy only the very best safari experience available in India.

This 22 days tour of India takes you to some of the country's greatest national parks, among them the World Heritage Kaziranga National Park, host to the world's single largest population of the endangered one-horned rhino. Both Kanha National Park and Bandhavgarh National Park are noted the world over for their high number of tigers. The Gir National Park is the last bastion for approximately 300 Asiatic lions, a highly endangered species. The tour is aimed at offering the wildlife enthusiast a cross-section of India's fabulous wildlife experiences in some of the most stunning natural settings in not just the country but the world.
