When compared to the wildlife of mainland Africa, India is always going to lose, however in place of this, India offers you a much wider experience. Tracking tigers in the wild on a tiger safari is a heart stopping moment as you see these striped predators slip silently out of the jungle; yes, it is more frenetic than an African safari, however a glimpse of one of these powerful beasts is truly unforgettable. A visit to India is not complete without stopping to enjoy a sunrise visit to the world renowned Taj Mahal; often underestimated and a truly romantic highlight of any honeymoon to India.
As well as the Taj you have the erotic Khajuraho tombs (if these don’t get the blood pumping then nothing will!) and a plethora of crumbling palaces and forts dotted throughout the country, some of which you can even stay in. One thing is true however in that India is a tiring place to travel, and therefore any honeymoon must also involve a few days relaxation on the beach.
Kerala provides the perfect place to unwind either on one of the boutique houseboats or luxury coastal hotels.
