a great trip, but tiring, it is billed as leisurely, but getting up at 4.30 every day and bumping around in a jeep for eight hours takes its toll. Seeing a tiger makes it all worthwhile. Beautiful scenery and lovely sunrises. The lodges were lovely and the food superb. A nice group of people.

Elusive Tigers!

So much down to luck and timing, it was like looking for an orange needle in a large haystack! We certainly saw a lot of the land where tigers are but the animals themselves are not so easy to see.

We had a great experience on this holiday. The lodges were all free wifi, albeit a bit slow. 2 of the 3 had pools, great for the free time between 11 and 2.30 between game drives. At the 3rd lodge the pool was being renovated which was a shame. Saw 6 tigers ncluding a fleeting glimpse of 3 cubs on 4 of the 16 game drives we experienced.

This trip, for me, was all about the wildlife and did not disappoint. Although I met people who went on countless game drives and never saw a tiger. I was fortunate (we became known as the lucky jeep) and had 16 sightings of these beautiful creatures; ranging from a dot in the distance to watching them at close quarters. As mentioned in other reviews the wild life is not as profuse and varied as in Africa however the excitement on seeing a tiger is overwhelming. We also saw spotted, barking and swamp deer, Samba, wild boar, jackal, wild dog, gaur (Indian bison), mongoose, rat snake, macaques, langur, peacock and huge variety of birds. The parks use local people as guides who speak varying amounts of English - you are allocated as you arrive at the gate - consequently, the quality varies considerably. A keen driver and guide made all the difference. We had some that sat quietly and barely said a word and others that were constantly searching for wildlife and communicating. The hotels we stayed at were all clean, comfortable, had air-conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. Two had swimming pools and all the staff were warm friendly and helpful. The food was nice if a little the same. The overnight train journey to Agra was an experience and quite fun. We bought a lock and chain to secure our bags below the bottom bunk so we could sleep without having to keep an eye out. I had a top bunk and slept really well. I felt that the amount of city time v wildlife was correct. We spent one day in Agra seeing the Taj and Red Fort. Our train had been delayed and I felt that therefore it was all a bit rushed and crammed into the heat of the day. I would have liked to have had a break (lunch cold drink) between the two. The Taj was beautiful although I was a tad disappointed it had scaffolding on it! The Red Fort, I am glad I have seen - the smell on approaching the main gate will not be forgotten.

A fantastic trip with a group of fantastic people. All our accommodation was just perfect, clean and spacious. Food was excellent throughout the tour. The wildlife was amazing. I think we were quite lucky as we saw tigers on 11 of the 15 game drives. Quite a few out in the open crossing or walking along the tracks. We even got to see a sloth bear walking along the track. The only animal we didn't get to see was a leopard but I suppose we shouldn't be greedy. The overnight sleeper train journey from Katni to Agra was a fun experience. Everything was clean. A bit noisy with people backwards and forwards but that's part of the experience. Then we had Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal. A must for everyone. Both beautiful sites with lovely architecture. you can't go to India without seeing them.

As with any wildlife holiday there are no guarantees, but the viewings that we did have were fantastic. Tigers, leopards, sloth bears and much more.

We can thoroughly recommend this trip for anyone who loves wildlife. Although seeing tigers was the highlight of the parks, we saw lots of other wildlife whilst trying to spot the elusive tigers. We did the 15 scheduled drives and another two that our guide Krishna organised. in total we saw 4 tigers (1 in Pench, 3 in Bandhavgarh, 0 in Kanha). Most of these sightings were lovely. The one in Pench was not so good as every jeep rushed to try and find the best spot for photos. You need to be quite patient and just relax and enjoy the lovely scenery and wildlife and Krishna's great company. We were lucky to be with him on each trip, as we had a private departure for just us two as not enough people had signed up. This cost extra but was well worth it.

Overall, a really excellent holiday. We received exactly what was described in the broacher. The staff were excellent and went out their way to provide for us.
