Embark On An Indian Safari Adventure
When most people think about safaris, Africa is the first destination which comes to mind. However, when it comes to some of the best wildlife safaris combining with rich cultural context, India is the one that stands out.
Endowed with a vast range of varied terrain, India is home to some of the best wildlife in the world. From lush jungles to arid deserts, from the beautiful coastline to the peaks of the mighty Himalayas, India’s natural splendour is truly diverse.
The country features over 100 official national parks, which are home to a wide variety of animal and plant species. Jim Corbett National Park in the state of Uttarkhand dates back to 1936 and was designed to protect the endangered Bengal tiger. Here, you will find over 488 plant species and a variety of fauna, such as the Great Indian Elephants.
Other worthwhile parks include: Bhandavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh, featuring the highest density of tigers anywhere in the world. The game at Kanha National Park is what inspired Rudyard Kipling to write his famous Jungle Book. Closer to Delhi, the capital, is the popular Ranthambore National Park, the former hunting grounds of the Maharajahs of Jaipur.
Then you have the Sundarbans National Park on the Ganges Delta, one of the largest reserves for the Bengal tiger and a UNESCO World Heritage site; Gir Forest National Park in Gujarat, which is the sole home of the Asiatic lion in the wilderness; and Kaziranga National Park, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to two-thirds of the world’s great one-horned rhinoceroses.
