Why you'll love this trip
  • Discover the many ways to safari! Hop on a rickshaw safari through the bird sanctuaries of Keoladeo, take an evening boat and nighttime safari in Satpura National Park and cruise on jeep safaris through Bandhavgarh and Panna National Parks.
  • Visit two of the best and most popular national parks in India – Panna National Park and Bandhavgarh National Park – and try to spot the elusive royal Bengal tiger.
  • Search for nocturnal animals such as leopards, jungle cats, fruit bats, flying squirrels and flying foxes under the stars, during your night safari in Satpura National Park with a local, naturalist guide.
  • Tick one of the Seven Wonders of the World off your bucket list in Agra – home to the 17th century Taj Mahal – during sunset with your expert guides. Has a UNESCO World Heritage site ever looked this good?
  • Explore Old Delhi by rickshaw with your knowledgeable local leader, visit the sprawling Jama Masjid Temple and enjoy a special farewell dinner in a beautiful setting to cap off the perfect trip.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll learn about our Intrepid Foundation partner, Positive Change for Marine Life.

Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

Is this trip right for you?
  • In general, the best time to spot wildlife is at dawn and dusk. There will be many early starts on this tour to capitalize on optimum safari times or to avoid morning traffic on travel days.
  • In the winter months of November, December, and January, early mornings and late evenings tend to be cold, while the rest of the months offer hot and sunny conditions during safaris. Remember to stay hydrated, use sufficient skin protection, and pack accordingly to ensure a comfortable experience.
  • While this trip doesn't include strenuous physical activity, the jeeps used in national parks are simple, typically with a high step to get in and out of them, and the roads can be quite bumpy.
