If your forte is bird watching, why not visit the Keoladeo Ghana National
Park, just a short drive from Agra, the home of the Taj Mahal. Here, more
than 350 species of birds have been seen. In the winter months, birds from
Siberia, Central Asia, Tibet and China come to pass the cold months in our
more temperate climate.
We offer adventures ranging from a simple three night stay in a Swiss style
tent, the comfort of a top class hotel, to the one and only luxury jungle
camp in India, complete with air conditioned tents, marble bathrooms and
private sit outs built right on the lakeside.
We are proud to say that all our wildlife programmes are run by some of the
most professional and knowledgeable guides, naturalists and wildlife
specialists in India, who spend most of their time out in the jungles.
Whichever programme you choose, you can be sure of being in good hands.
In spite of great efforts, the number of tigers in India are decreasing so
if you are fortunate enough to see them, you can count yourself enormously
