India Wildlife Reserves holiday highlights
Our featured wildlife sanctuaries are scattered throughout the country, from Kaziranga in the far north-east to Periyar which is situated high in Kerala's Western Ghats. Ranthambore is the poster child of India's national parks and it makes an unforgettable addition to a tour of the Golden Triange; however, it's in the parks of Central India that tiger spottings are slightly more common. Badhavgarh in particular has the highest concentration of tigers and is therefore the region's most popular parks. For some, getting off the beaten track is preferred and there are a number of parks such as Satpura and Pench that attract less visitors yet still have incredible wildlife viewing opportunities.
