Land of the Tiger

Fantastic Private Trip

5
My wife and I had a fantastic holiday on an Exodus Private Tour as the group tour was already full. Our guide, Krishna, has been doing these tours for about 14 years and made the whole time very easy and enjoyable for us. In the national parks, he quite often spotted animals and birds before the official guides. He also tried to ensure that we had drivers that he had worked with before which was also very valuable. The official guides in the parks are very much hit and miss. Some of them are just starting and didn't know what all of the animals were called; others were very knowledgable (one even had his own guide books in which he pointed out the flora and fauna). As the trip notes states, it can be cold in the mornings and a substantial fleece is needed. However, as soon as the sun comes up, the temperature was very nice. During the 15 game drives, we had 5 tiger sighting (one mother and two-year old cub; one male; one rear end of a male; one mother and four young cubs; and a tigress sunbathing on the road). Apart from all of the deer and different birds, we also saw a leopard; a sloth bear; a jungle cat; jackals; and wild dogs. The food was served buffet style and was very good everywhere that we stayed. The accommodation was also quite good although one of the rooms smelled very musty but leaving the windows open mostly sorted out. Everywhere that we stayed, the staff were very friendly and helpful and as soon as we asked for anything, it was quickly sorted out. The train was ok but not very comfortable and, if you can't handle bad smells, Indian railway stations are going to be an unforgettable experience. Unfortunately, it was a bit misty when we got to Agra so didn't get a perfect view of the Taj Mahal. However, Krishna had already been in contact with the local guide (who was also excellent) and we had decided that going there at either sunrise or sunset was going to be a waste of time. We went mid-morning and then on to Agra's red fort afterwards. All in all, it was a wonderful trip and I would very happily recommend it.

This was a wonderful trip. Balvinder, our group leader, could not have done more to make the holiday memorable and fun. All the travel went smoothly, the accommodation was fine and the game drives lovely.

A brilliant holiday from the start. I went to see tigers, and I saw tigers. Belvinda Singh, our highly experienced, guide made our experience memorable. The accommodation was very good and food excellent. But most of all our group were great, we all got on well.

Our trip took place between the 4th and 18th of April 2015 and along with my wife and I were another married couple and four other independent women travelers, two being close friends. For some of us this was our first trip to India while others had been before and three were seasoned Exodus travelers. We got on well as a group and had a fabulous trip! The weather was typically hot varying between 28 and 40 degrees centigrade in the middle part of the day but could be cool at 5:30 in the morning when you are waiting to enter a park. It also rained, heavily sometimes in Bandhavgarh. We saw tigers in both Pench and Bandhavgarh National Parks but sadly NOT in Kanha and even had a brief 5 second glimpse of a leopard before he or she ran off into the undergrowth. We had plenty of other wildlife and bird life sightings although not the same diversity that you would get in Africa but then India is like that.

I think that we were very lucky to have 12 Tiger sightings, this exceeded our expectations, other groups may not be as fortunate. India has an abundance of other wildlife and so many birds, the 3 game parks we visited were all totally different landscapes, the countryside was surprisingly green. The entire tour was brilliant, the group got along very well together and added to the sucess of the trip.

Tigers are illusive animals in the middle of what can be a very large area, but they have habits. These habits are known by the spotters, so given a bit of luck you may well see one or more if there are cubs. Patience and understanding is required when seeking out these majestic animals. It does not come easy but the rewards when one breaks cover or is found at a water hole is just simply fantastic. Along the way you will come across some of the most beautifully coloured birds. There are lots of other animals/ predators which roam the tree and Bamboo lined grounds, you might see a kill or a carcase. This is life in the National Parks of India.

An excellent all round trip with 12 tiger sightings for the group, some just specks of stripes in the grass & from long/very long distances, but some extremely close encounters too which were brilliant. 3 very different but beautiful parks. Organisation etc was excellent.

A well structured holiday that delivered all that we had expected and more. Seeing some of rural India together with the 3 different game parks was spectacular with some rare sightings of some of India's threatened species.
