Photographer’s India: Land of the Tiger
April 1- 14, 2019
India’s jewels are the parks, palaces, temples, bazaars and, of course, the wild animals which define her exotic past. On this photographic safari we spend a week in the renowned Bandavgarh National Park, one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in India that houses the Royal Bengal Tiger. The parks of central India were the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, and all of the animals described in the books are to be found here. Bandavgarh, a relatively smaller park with stunning landscape, has the highest concentration of wild tigers per square mile. We have ample time to thoroughly explore and photograph wildlife in exclusive 4-wheel drive vehicles.
Before reaching the tiger park, we delve into ancient India visiting religious Benares (also known as Varanasi). Built on the banks of the holy river Ganga (Ganges), Varanasi is the “oldest” living city of the world and could well be thought of as the “Soul of India.” Also visit the millennium old intricately carved temples at Khajuraho.
Seeing and photographing the tigers of India has been one of the highlights of my life. For this trip we will spend our time in Bandavgarh, on my very first day in Bandavgarh we saw six tigers before breakfast! While that was an exception, our group lost count at over 20 different tiger sightings and we were only there half the time that this trip offers. Come join me in 2019 for an experience you will never forget!
