This trip takes you to some less frequently visited tiger habitats that still offer excellent chances to see wild tigers and many other unique species, with the added benefit of encountering far fewer fellow tourists. Starting in Mumbai, you will fly to Guwahati and on to Kaziranga. We will explore and visit the Gibbon Sanctuary where you'll see the Hoolock Gibbon, Pig-tailed Macaque, Stump-tailed Macaque, and other primates. From Jorhat, head to the Neora Valley National Park where perhaps you will encounter the rare Red Panda. From here you will go to Kanha to visit one of the more known wildlife parks. Your safari by jeep will reach deep into the huge parks.
