October to the end of December is ‘green’. After the monsoons, the parks become lush and green, with water filled areas of land making the scenery spectacular. The grass is longer and water is plentiful, which can make spotting the tigers a little harder, maybe this just adds to the excitement though. Although trips to India are often purely based on seeing the tigers, do not dismiss travelling earlier. They may be harder to spot, but the scenery is fantastic, with flowers blooming and trees blossoming, this truly is a great time to visit. The birdlife during this time is second to none and if you are a keen birder, travelling at this time is a must.
