Sundarbans India & Bangladesh

10 Nights & 11 Days

Overview

This itinerary is focussed on trailing the Bengal tiger in one of the most beautiful habitats in the world- the mangroves forests of India and Bangladesh. The thrill is as much in seeing the tiger, as it is in the unconventional way to pot them – from a boat in the water, peering through the thick bushes. The expected jungle safari with jeeps is not the tenor of the trip. You also get to see life on the river at close quarters.
