Everything you need to know about a tiger safari in India
You’ll feel the atmosphere of the jungle change when a tiger is close. The air fills with the sound of animal warnings and you can feel the tension as a majestic tiger enters their territory. On your tiger watching safari, your first glimpse might just be the white flecks of hair on the tiger’s ears as he stalks through long grassland, occasionally catching a flash of bright orange or black. Alternatively, you might be perched on the back of an elephant, exploring the forest before coming to a clearing of open grassland where you can watch a tiger basking in the sun before she slowly stands and walks off, melting into the surrounding forest.
We track down forest pathways that are the favourite haunts of our feline friends, and use local guides with intimate knowledge of the tiger’s natural habitats to maximise your chances of watching one of these remarkable endangered big cats in their natural habitat.
A critically endangered species in the wild, a successful sighting depends on being in the right place at the right time.
