Day 1
You will be met at Nagpur Airport and transferred to your hotel in the central state of Maharashtra.
 
Check in and relax in this city that is the gateway to the famous tiger reserves of central India.
 
Day 2
Today transfer 6-hours from Nagpur to Kanha National Park, one of the largest and most scenic national parks in India and an ideal habitat for tigers and their prey.
 
Five times the size of Bandhavgarh, Kanha's mixed forests are interspersed with vast meadows known as maidans. Perennial streams run through these, providing a source of water for wildlife even in the hot summer months. As a result hundreds of chital deer graze on carpets of green grass, against a backdrop of majestic sal tree forests. Check into your lodge close to the entrance to this premier wildlife sanctuary.
Days 3 To 4
Rise at dawn to track wildlife in Kanha National Park, which is particularly well known for its endangered swamp deer (or hardwater barasingha) which live on large open grassy meadows amongst the lush sal and bamboo forests. Brought back from the brink of extinction, these handsome animals are a remarkable conservation success story.
 
Early morning is the best time to track tigers and other wildlife, but be aware that it is extremely difficult to find tigers in the jungle and sightings are never guaranteed. Best viewings are generally at the end of the dry season (March to May, although it is extremely hot from April onwards), when the tigers search out the waterholes - but you need to take at least 4 game drives for a good chance of a sighting. Sloth bears are also found in this park.
 
Two shared jeep safaris per day are included - one in the early morning and one in the late afternoon.
 
Note: This tiger reserve is closed every Wednesday afternoon, when only a morning game drive is offered. The park is also closed during the Holi & Diwali festivals, as well as during the monsoon season (July to early October).
 
Please note we always try to book jeep safaris, but these can only be reserved 120 days in advance and cannot be guaranteed - in which case your game drive will be in a 20-seater canter. In the winter months, morning safaris require warm clothes including woolly hats and gloves to protect you from the wind chill in your open vehicle.
Day 5
This morning enjoy another shared jeep safari in Kanha National Park.
 
Afterwards transfer 4.5-hours to Pench National Park, situated in the lower reaches of the Satpura Hills. Check into your lodge in this beautiful tiger reserve that is rich in diversity and supports an abundance of flora, fauna and aquatic life.
Days 6 To 7
This morning enjoy a shared game drive in beautiful Pench National Park that inspired Rudyard Kipling to write his famous children's story - The Jungle Book - featuring Mowgli the man cub, Shere Kahn the tiger, Baloo the sloth bear, Kaa the snake and King Louis the amusing ape.
 
Tiger sightings are good in this small reserve which is divided by the Pench River, but are never guaranteed. You may also see chital, sambar, nilgai, wild boar, jackal and barking deer. Jungle cats and leopards are also present but rarely seen. There are also over 170 different species of birds.
 
In the afternoon return to the park for another game drive.
 
Note: This tiger reserve is closed every Wednesday afternoon, when only a morning game drive is offered. The park is also closed during the Holi & Diwali festivals, as well as during the monsoon season (July to early October).
 
Please note we always try to book jeep safaris, but these can only be reserved 120 days in advance and cannot be guaranteed - in which case your game drive will be in a 20-seater canter. In the winter months, morning safaris require warm clothes including woolly hats and gloves to protect you from the wind chill in your open vehicle.
Day 8
Today leave Pench and transfer 4-hours to Satpura National Park.
 
Named after the Satpura Range, this rugged reserve with its sandstone peaks, narrow gorges, ravines and dense forests preserves over 850 square miles (2,200 sq.km) of the central Indian highlands eco-system - together with the adjoining Bori and Pachmarhi wildlife sanctuaries. With an altitude ranging from the level plains of Churna (984 ft / 300 m) to the Dhoopgarh Peak (4,430 ft / 1,350 m), this park sustains a wide diversity of birdlife, animals and plants.
 
In the evening enjoy a shared Night Drive, searching for the nocturnal animals of this park by spotlight.
Day 9
This morning enjoy exploring the dense vegetation of Satpura National Park with a local naturalist guide, either on foot or on a canoe ride down the Denwa River. In the afternoon venture further afield on a shared jeep safari.
 
Satpura is very rich in biodiversity and in this sanctuary you can hope to see sambar, nilgai, chital, Indian muntjac, four-horned antelope, chinkara, wild boar, black buck, fox, porcupine, flying squirrel, mouse deer, Indian giant squirrel and the elusive leopard. Leopard and Sloth bear sightings in this park are particularly good, but tiger sightings are rare.
 
This park is also home to a wide variety of butterflies and over 300 species of birds that live in these lowlands, wetlands and mountains. During the winter months many build their nests and roost here, making this a particularly rewarding time to visit. You can hope to see the Peacock, Grey hornbill, Malabar pied hornbill, Black shouldered kite, Treepie, Shikra and many more species.
 
The flora is also very interesting, consists of mainly sal forest with teak, tendu and mahua trees. You will also find bamboo, Indian gooseberries, bel fruits and many grasses and medicinal plants.
Day 10
Today enjoy a full day shared jeep safari, taking the 20-mile (30 km) Churna Route deep into the forests of Satpura National Park.
 
Birdlife is prolific, but this route is notable for its Sloth Bear sightings. You can also hope to see leopard, wild dogs, Indian gaur (bison), malabar squirrel and nilgai. The probability of seeing a tiger is also higher in this zone, but sightings are still relatively rare.
 
A hot lunch is included today at Churna Forest Guest House.
Day 11
This morning leave Satpura and transfer 3.5-hours to Bhopal Airport for your flight to Mumbai.
 
You will be met at Mumbai Airport and transferred to your hotel conveniently situated near the airport.
Day 12
Transfer to Mumbai Airport for your flight home.
