TIGERS OF INDIA

10 DAYS – CENTRAL INDIA


 

Tour Details

India, the very place that inspired The Jungle Book one of my favorite movies as a kid.  After an epic trip exploring the scenic country and conducting many extensive outings scouting for the best photographic opportunities, I found India to be everything and more than I had imagined when I was younger.

It’s a fascinating country fruitfully rich in wildlife and traditions, and that’s why I am so excited to announce it as a new addition to our international photography tours.

Overall, I was amazed at the sheer number of subjects available to photograph. Not only did we capture images of tigers on 10 of 14 game drives, we also saw an amazing biodiversity of other species; sloth bears, flying foxes, Gaur, jackals, a brief glimpse of the elusive leopard, civet, eagles, four species of owls, kingfishers, langur monkeys with babies, and the iconic peacocks displaying to their mates. The trip was more than I could have ever expected. 

After countless phone calls and emails, visiting the best properties, interviewing and hand selecting guides that have spent 20 years guiding in India, I promise it will exceed your expectations as well. Everything about the itinerary is custom, we will only visit the most productive parks, and when we journey through them there will only be two photographers per jeep allowing each person the ability to move around to get the best angle and capture the perfect image.

Allow us to lead you, not only to the photographs you to desire to take of tigers and India’s additional extraordinary wildlife, but also to create memories of a lifetime.
