Travellers visiting India are being encouraged to try a wider array of wildlife tours to take the pressure off the tiger population.
Visitors on flights to India are urged to discover the variety of wildlife on offer beyond the popular tiger tours, as Indian Experiences is running a series of alternative offers at its eco lodges this year.
Corbett National Park is celebrating its Platinum Jubilee this year with a range of jeep safaris from Jim’s Jungle Retreat featuring elephants, crocodiles and around 600 species of exotic birds.
Elsewhere, Reni Pan Jungle Lodge in Satpura National Park claims to be India’s best-kept secret, with leopards, wild dogs and sloth bears all sighted nearby.
In order to help preserve the local environment, Satpura is one of the only national parks in India that allows walking safaris within its core area.
Finally, Singinawa Lodge in Kanha National Park is a great example of how successful conservation can restore a forest to its former glory.
This site was once 56 acres of barren land, but it has been carefully built up into a thriving habitat for numerous species including a pair of leopards.
Book your stay at Singinawa now and you can get four nights for the price of three.
