Being one of the 12 most bio-diverse regions of the world, a mix of rainforest, tropical and semi deciduous covers makes for a large part of the Indian topography. The wonder of Sundarbans, cold desert national parks and the arresting beauty of the less treaded jungles of Chhattisgarh add to the list of soul satiating jungles of the Indian subcontinent. The green belt stretches right from the northeast to the heart of the country and the southern Nilgiri biosphere, giving different species a conducive habitat.
The country is also home to many species of birds and also a temporary pad for a number of migratory birds. Apart from tigers and elephants that make for the biggest draw for wildlife enthusiasts, there are a number of other animals that lurk in the shadows of the dense jungles of the country.
India offers unparalleled experiences in the jungle – both for sighting animals and the infrastructure. Imagine sipping a cup of tea and being able to spot a herd of elephants from your private sit out. Many jungle lodges allow for these spectacular scenes to unfold. The naturalists and wildlife experts that we choose to connect with on these trips are stalwarts on their own accord and add value by their insights and experiences of the jungles.
