India offers a stunning variety of experiences in its expanse of about 3.3 million square kms. From the chilly peaks of the Himalayas to the hot green Ganges’ plains; from the majestic Rajasthan deserts to massive mangrove forests and the famous sea and sand and spices of Goa. Each region presents a totally different cultural experience with its own sounds and colours, arts and crafts, stories and tales. Southern India in particular has something for all the family – peaceful backwaters and spice plantations, incredible wildlife in expansive parks, ancient temples, colourful bazaars and stunning scenery. And as with all our family tours, good quality hotels await at the end of each day in excellent locations with great service and oodles of delicious food. As always, several “must-­do” excursions are included but many other options are also offered, leaving it to you and the family to do as much or as little as you choose. 

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Jeep safari in the rich forest of Nagarhole with its hills, valleys, streams and waterfalls
  2. Boat safari on the Kabini River, an artery for wildlife and a fabulous way to experience the tranquillity of the forest and waterways
  3. Visit Tipu’s Palace with its elegant teak pillars and decorative frescoes
  4. Nagarhole National Park in Kabini which has earned a spot on the world’s top 5 destinations for viewing wildlife
