India Wildlife Holidays

Our wildlife holidays, wildlife tours and safaris of India are listed below:

Africa has its big five; well so does India! Of course the African elephant is swapped for its smaller cousin the Asiatic, the black and white rhinos make way for the armour-plated one-horned rhino, for cape buffalo see water buffalo, keep the versatile and widespread leopard and last but not least replace the lion with the larger tiger! In fact if you wanted to go out to the deserts of Gujurat and Rajasthan there is a good argument for keeping the lion as well as the last remnant population of Asiatic lions resides her in Sasan Gir National Park. To add to the list of big cats in India snow leopards are the kings of the Himalayas and we have a specialist tour heading out to Ladahk and Hemis National Park in search of this, the most elusive of all big cats!

A tour heading out to the deserts in the pipeline but in the meantime you will have to decide whether its tigers, tigers or tigers that compels you to visit India. We specialise in running tours to the heart of India and spend as much time as possible in the best national parks in the world for spotting tigers. All our wildlife tours in the central Indian national parks have an excellent chance of seeing the largest cat in the world. In addition to tigers there are dhole, sloth bears, leopards, guar, chital, sambar, mongooses, vultures, eagles, owls, langurs and macaques.

When looking into tiger safaris and tiger watching holidays of India in the near future please note the following:

The National Parks Authority for Madhya Pradesh have announced that with effect from 1st April 2011, all
National Parks within the State will remain closed to public access on Wednesday afternoons until further notice.
This order will affect Pench, Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Satpura and Panna Reserves. The inconvenience caused to
Royle Safaris tour participants is regretted but unfortunately there is nothing we can do to facilitate entry during
these closures. On occasions when our tour itinerary would normally include entry to one of these reserves on a
Wednesday afternoon we will try arrange alternative natural history activities either around the periphery of the park. In the event that this is not possible we will offer the opportunity to watch a Tiger related documentary during this time.

But we also offer an unbelievable tour to one of the best wildlife hotspots on the planet. The Western Ghats, this safari offers the chance to spend over two weeks exploring all the national parks, bio-shpheres and wildlife sanctuaries through the states of Karnataka and Kerala. Here we will search out some of the endemics such as Nilgiri tahr, lion-tailed macaques, Wayanad laughingtrushes whilst finding tigers, leopards, dhole, Asiatic elephants and most of the animals found in the more commonly visited parks.

We also have an excellent trekking holiday in search of snow leopards, this 17 days trek through their favourite habitat is just about the only way to see these magnificent and almost mythical cats.

All our Indian tours use the very best local guides who have spent most of their lives living and working in the area we are visiting and as a result they are among the best at finding the smaller and often more intriguing species. Many people come to India and bomb around the big national parks like Bandhav Garh or Kanha searching for tigers whilst tigers are next to never seen outside of the early morning and late afternoon so we focus on the animals which are out and about during these hours like ruddy mongooses, golden jackals, jungle cats, mouse deer, black-naped hares and of course all the different bird species from plum-headed parakeets and commersmith barbets to orange-headed thrushes and brown fish owls. But don’t despair we always have tigers at the top of our priorities and will stop what ever were doing to go to one if we hear one has been spotted.

Join one of our many tours to India and add yourself to the exclusive list of people who have seen wild tigers (as their population continues to decrease and the Indian government talk about reducing tourism in core areas of national parks; unfortunately there may not be many more opportunities); or if you fancy southern India then you will end up seeing places and experiencing Indian culture in a way most people never do.

All these tours are available on other dates (subject to availability) than the dates listed. Please contact us to arrange a tour on a date which suits you.
