Rajasthan Wildlife Tour
Within a relatively limited amount of time, this tour embraces a number of major wildlife destinations across Rajasthan....
Day 1 - New Delhi
You’ll be met on arrival in Delhi and assisted with the transfer to your hotel in Aerocity, close to Delhi airport. Overnight in Delhi
Day 2 - Delhi - Udaipur- Bera
Transfer back to Delhi airport and fly to Udaipur. You’ll be met here and introduced to your driver. Depart immediately and drive 2 hours or so to Bera, where your first safaris will take place, in search of Panthera pardus fusca, the Asian leopard. Settle in at your safari camp, before heading out on safari in the late afternoon
Day 3 - Bera
Morning and evening wildlife safaris - the open and rocky habitat here makes sighting leopards surprisingly easy, and with four safaris over 3 days you will have an excellent chance of seeing more than one of these majestic cats.
Day 4 - Bera - Jojawar
After a final safari and breakfast back at the camp, head off for the small town of Jojawar. While not a wildlife destination of great note, this part of Rajasthan is home to a host of bird species as well as desert and arid-land dwellers such as nilgai, blackbuck and jackal. You’ll drive out into the countryside near Jojawar on a birding/wildlife tour in the afternoon. Overnight in Jojawar
Day 5 - Jojawar - Bundi
Drive across to Bundi and from here visit the riverside Ramgarh Vishdhari Wildlife Sanctuary - this low-key sanctuary is home to still more bird species, chinkara antelopes and, if you’re really lucky, you might see Indian hyenas. Overnight in Bundi
Day 6 - Bundi - Ranthambore
Drive north to Rajasthan’s most famous wildlife destination, Ranthambore National Park. A growing tiger population means your chances of seeing one of these elusive cats is as good here as anywhere in India, and by spending enough time here to take 4 safaris you’ll be assured of being able to visit different parts of the Park on the various drives. Overnight in Ranthambore
Day 7 - Ranthambore
Early morning and late afternoon safaris into the National Park. While Panthera tigris (the Bengal Tiger!) is the obvious highlight of any trip here, the Park also supports a wealth of mammal, bird and reptile species any you might see any or all of langur and macaque monkeys, jackals, nilgai or blue bull, hyenas, crocodiles and a host of others. Overnight in Ranthambore
Day 8 - Ranthambore - Sariska
After a final safari at dawn, depart and drive to Sariska National Park. This Park has a chequered past with a tragic tale of poaching in the early 2000s destroying its tiger population, but it is now home to a small population of tigers once more. The upside of this Park having a much lower profile than Ranthambore is that visitor numbers are much smaller and there is a more intimate experience possible than amidst the larger number of jeeps at Ranthambore. Head out on a safari in the afternoon. Overnight at Sariska
Day 9 - Sariska
Morning and afternoon safaris and other jungle activities; overnight at Sariska
Day 10 - Sariska - Jaipur - Delhi - Depart
A final safari in the morning, before driving an hour or so into Jaipur. Fly to Delhi and depart in the evening.
