Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Delhi
You’ll be blown away by the riot of colour, historical monuments and chaotic hustle and bustle of this colourful capital, and what a way to begin your Indian adventure. Embark on the fascinating Three Religions tour to learn more about the melting pot of cultures and religions here, and how they harmoniously coexist. The next day you’ll enjoy a food walk with a renowned chef, sampling treats from a range of local establishments, some of which have existed for over 120 years!
Wander the congested chowks, the twisting lanes and the crowded bazaars of Old Delhi, dropping by the striking Red Fort and the Ghandi memorial at Raj Ghat along the way. Moving across to the New Town, you’ll be amazed at the number of green parks and wide boulevards – a throwback to British rule – as well as the elegant marble designs of Humayun’s Tomb and the Quran-inscribed tower of the Qutub Minar.

Morning Culinary Experience with a top chef in Old Delhi
Take the Shatabdi Express Train to Bhopal, and after checking in, enjoy an evening walking tour of Bhopal. Referred to as ‘the city of lakes’ (because of its two large, shimmering lakes), it also boasts a fascinating history dating back to the 11th century when Raja Bhoj founded the city.
Satpura Tiger Reserve
The following day, drive to Satpura, with a visit to Bhimbetka and its famous rock shelters en route. Once you arrive in Satpura, the land of the tiger, you’ll be discovering one of India’s best-kept secrets at Satpura Tiger Reserve on an afternoon safari. This is the only park in central India to allow walking safaris, an unforgettable way to encounter the flora and fauna of the region. Prepare to get back to nature as you discover the park’s diverse wildlife on several daytime and nighttime safaris, including leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, and the Malabar giant squirrel, whose distinctive two-tone coat can be spotted hiding in the trees. You’ll also have the opportunity to canoe on the Tawa Reservoir where you can spot several migratory animals like waterfowl and other mammals.
Night safari around the park
Early morning jungle safari
Pench National Park
Onwards to Pench National Park, the setting for Rudyard Kipling’s celebrated The Jungle Book, where you can marvel at the tigers, deer and birds that lurk among the park’s meadows and teak trees. Named after the glorious Pench River that flows through its forests and valleys, the park is well-known for the sizeable herds of gaur (Indian bison) that live in it, as well as the less-common hyenas and porcupines. But that’s not all; this magnificent wilderness is also home to over 1200 species of plant, 170 species of bird and numerous grazing deer.
Drive to Tadoba, home of the oldest national park of Maharashtra which spans 240 square miles, and also one of India’s 28 Project Tiger Reserves. Here, on morning and afternoon safaris, you’ll discover beautiful tigers as well as rare Indian wildlife such as leopards, sloth bears, gaur, wild dogs, jungle cats, plus several species of Indian deer like sambar, nilgai and barking deer.
Journey to Mumbai
Drive to Nagpur and catch your flight to Mumbai, the capital of Maharashtra and the most affluent and industrialised city in India. On your first morning in the city, embark on a Mumbai by Dawn tour which pays homage to the people of Mumbai and local businesses. The ‘all herb mandi’ spread across a popular bridge is particularly interesting, featuring thousands of sellers proffering colourful fruit and vegetables. In the afternoon you’ll tour the famous Elephant Caves, excavated in the sixth century, followed by a city tour of frenetic Mumbai. Look out for key sites like the Gateway of India, Crawford Market and the Prince of Wales Museum.
