Our cultural and wildlife journey takes us by rail and van to three incredible national parks where we'll have a good chance of seeing wild tigers, superb birds, and possibly all of the big game animals on the Indian subcontinent. We will explore the beguiling treasures of this ancient land, including the medieval monuments of Khajuraho, the sublimely magnificent Taj Mahal, and the mysterious lost temples reclaimed by the forest and taken over by big cats. Accommodations are in hotels and nature lodges.
