India is home to the highest diversity of wildcats in the world including the Royal Bengal Tiger. With close to 3000 tigers in the wild, India is undoubtedly the best destination in the world to catch a sighting of this majestic big cat. Listen to the calls of the wild and experience a sense of one-ness with nature on this wild trail through India.
In this journey, we take you on an exploration of two of the top tiger reserves in the country, which offer the best chance of seeing the tiger in its natural habitat – Satpuraand Pench. Apart from the Bengal Tiger, other wildlife that you will find in the area include Leopards, Jungle Cat and the Rusty-spotted Cat, along with over 250 species of birds.
