Experiencing India's finest National parks and luxury Safari lodges! This exciting new adventure celebrates the outdoors and the freedom to explore them with a deep sense of gratitude and respect for the wilderness we must protect. This is a celebration of the Indian tiger population that has risen to 2967 tigers as in the 2018 census.

A soft and mystical land, peppered with ancient temples and forts, where the forests are teeming with wildlife and are punctuated by ionic cities like Khajuraho with its ancient erotic temples. Here you will find many stunning historical monuments, a plethora of national parks and a rural lifestyle that will take you back to the Kipling India of our childhood. Jungle Book brought to life our first interaction with Mowgli, Shere Khan, Bagheera, Baloo and other lifelike characters running free in the jungles. On this journey, we relive the delight by visiting their abode.

This journey designed by Ibex Expeditions and Taj Safaris takes us through the Panna National Park with the Pashan Garh lodge set in 200 acres of private wilderness; onto Mahua Kothi lodge set in a 45-acre private forest in the Bandhavgarh National Park in the Vindhya hills and finally, to Banjaar Tola set in a 90 acre Sal forest on the banks of the river in Kanha. The heart of India's wild is home to the Bengal tiger, leopard, wild boar, antelope, and more.
