Big Cat Trilogy - India

Arranged on Dates that suit you. This tour gives you the chance of seeing three of the Subcontinent’s magnificent big cats on one memorable journey.

This very comprehensive 21 day  tour gives you the chance of seeing three of the Indian subcontinent’s magnificent big cats on one memorable journey.
Beginning in the Gir National Park in Gujarat, the last home of the Asiatic lion, before moving to Pench to search for leopard and tiger. Finally, head to Bandhavgarh to search for tiger. In addition to the big cats, the parks are a haven for birds and many other species of wildlife. Carefully arranged by our team here in the UK and seamlessly handled on the ground in India by a highly experienced team. 
This journey can also be tailor made to include extensions to other destinations or  by Pete Cooper or Dhanya Venkatesh if required. DAYS 15 to 20 can be taken in Kanha or Tadoba, returning via Nagpur if required. 

Though wildlife viewing can never be guaranteed, from our own experiences in these parks we would be very surprised if you did not have sightings of all three of the big cats, and some little ones too!!
