14 days / 13 nights
India is the land that evokes flights of imagination and curiosity, a canvas of spectacle and colour. Ruled by a succession of native kingdoms and often overrun and inhabited by invading armies of Central Asian origin, followed by the Mughals and finally the British, the transformation has been never-ending, and the results are profoundly and visibly etched in today’s milieu.
A profusion of races and cultures, and the magnitude of their legacies, are evident today. This extraordinary journey takes the traveller along a richly historic route, full of lore and splendour, punctuated by photographic opportunities, and features varied sightseeing and sojourns in historic places.
Over 14 days we will visit the following:
-Tour Delhi - both old and new
-We will travel via air to Raipur and visit Kanha National Park and Pench National Park to see tigers in the wild as well as other wildlife endemic to India, such as the Barasingha.

-We will fly to Udaipur where you will visit the City of Lakes, and see this area up close and personal through a heritage walking tour, where you will also see such amazing sites as the Udaipur City Palace, laden in tiles, glasswork and mosaics reminiscent of the times, when Maharajas ruled the land.
