India is one of these magical destinations for any traveller, also for those loving wildwatching & birding. Here visitors find wonderful natural heritage in an endless variation of landscapes full of exotic colours and aromas.

In this tour we propose you to explore the landscapes of three mythical States: Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh & Madya Pradesh. Our main goal is to enjoy good views on wild Tigers, one of the natural gems in Asia. For this, we will visit two different National Parks hosting some of the best densities of this cat on the Earth. Othe interesting mammals here will include Sloth Bear, Barasingha and different species of monkeys and deers.

Birds will also have an important place in the tour. We expect above 150 species and we will pay special attention to have good views on Indian Pitta, Indian Vulture, Oriental Darter, Indian Roller and many more!
