Not your typical safari destination, but India has incredible game of its own – tigers, rhinos, elephants, leopards, bears and even the incredibly rare Asiatic lion.

India's diverse landscape is not limited to picturesque beaches and historic cities. The country also offers a thrilling adventure for wildlife enthusiasts and safari lovers. With a variety of national parks and wildlife reserves, India is a fantastic destination for safari holidays.

Ranthambhore, located in Rajasthan, is renowned for its population of Bengal tigers. Visitors can embark on jeep and canter safaris to catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. The park's rich biodiversity includes leopards, sloth bears, and a variety of bird species.

Nestled in Assam, Kaziranga is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the one-horned Indian rhinoceros. Safaris here offer close encounters with rhinos, elephants, and tigers. The park's diverse ecosystem includes lush grasslands and wetlands. Located in West Bengal, the Sundarbans is a unique mangrove ecosystem and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, you can embark on boat safaris to witness the elusive Royal Bengal tiger, saltwater crocodiles, and numerous bird species. The first national park in India, Jim Corbett in Uttarakhand, is famous for its tiger population. Jeep safaris take you through dense forests and picturesque landscapes, offering opportunities to spot tigers, leopards, and elephants.

Gujarat's Gir is the only place in the world where you can see Asiatic lions in the wild. Jeep safaris provide a chance to observe these magnificent creatures, along with leopards, crocodiles, and a rich birdlife. Kerala's Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is a lush haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Boat safaris on Periyar Lake offer glimpses of elephants, sambar deer, and gaur (Indian bison) as they come to the water's edge.

Located in Karnataka, Bandipur offers a great safari experience with encounters with tigers, leopards, and a rich diversity of fauna. The park's teak forests and open grasslands provide excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Straddling the border of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, Pench is known for its thriving tiger population. Jeep safaris here offer an adventure in the heart of the jungle.

India's safari destinations provide opportunities to explore the country's incredible wildlife, from iconic tigers and rhinos to elusive leopards and unique bird species.
