Bandhavgarh Tiger Safari Tour - 6 Days


Day 1: Arrive at Delhi - most flights arrive either in the evening or at night, and we recommend that our guests consider arriving a day earlier as this allows you to recuperate from jetlag, and serves as insurance against international flight delays and cancellations. Additional night(s) can be added when you are finalizing your international flights.

Street Musician at Jaipur

Welcome to India, home to some of the world’s most exotic wildlife, over 500 National Wildlife Parks and Sanctuaries, incredible historical monuments, and the world’s most colorful culture.

Our services begin with your luxury VIP greeting as you disembark at Delhi airport. You are greeted as soon as you exit your plane and you will now be escorted through the complete arrival process, including immigration, baggage claim, and customs. Your VIP airport greeter will introduce you to your Accompanying Tour Director or an Easy Tours Travel Facilitator.

You are now driven to your luxury hotel, the Oberoi Gurgaon, and assisted with your check-in. Check-in is available from 3 pm onward – slightly earlier arrivals may be able to get an earlier check-in, or you can park your baggage with the bell desk and use the hotel facilities until check-in.

The next day’s plans are briefly reviewed and, if you so desire, you are given an introduction to the features, tools, and functions on the Easy Tours App, which can be downloaded on your phone, tablet, or laptop.

Day 2: Delhi - Khajuraho. (B) You are assisted with your check-out from your hotel in the morning and driven to the airport, where you are assisted with boarding your late-morning flight to Khajuraho. This is a one stop flight with no plane change at Varanasi. Your Tour Director and you are greeted on arrival at the Khajuraho airport and, as it is too late to head into the jungle by this time, you are driven to your hotel and assisted with your check-in. Although this hotel is not as luxurious as the other lodging on your tour, it is the only upscale option in Khajuraho and far superior to any other lodging. There is a break for a late lunch, if you so desire – airplane food will have been served on the flight.

A Temple at Sunset

A Temple at Sunset

Start your guided tour of the famed temples, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These magnificent examples of Hindu religious art were constructed about a thousand years ago.

Thousands of extremely detailed stone sculptures adorn the facades of these temples, and the subject matter includes some very explicit erotic scenes. The sophisticated design and building techniques that were used in the creation of these temples and the detailed artistry of the sculptures cannot be described in words - you have to experience them personally to grasp their impact. You have the option of attending the sound and light show at the western group of temples in the evening – it is hard to understand and not of high quality.

Day 3: Khajuraho - Bandhavgarh. (B,L,D) You are assisted with an early morning check-out of your hotel and then you are driven through the countryside and jungle to Bandhavgarh National Park. A packed breakfast is provided from your hotel for this journey.

Arrive at Bandhavgarh (Bandhavgarh is statistically India’s best park for tiger sightings, almost always multiple sightings over your 4 private safaris) in time for a slightly late lunch, and, before or after lunch, you are greeted by the hotel staff and then assisted with your check-in to your luxury jungle lodge, the only truly authentic luxury lodging in Bandhavgarh. The Taj Safari Lodges and the services and safaris included are the result of a very successful collaboration between & Beyond, one of Africa’s top luxury safari outfitters, and a dedicated team of specially trained wildlife luxury specialists from the Taj Group. Easy Tours only uses their most inclusive package both here and at your next destination - Kanha, including all meals, house wines and spirits, some laundry, and a number of available activities. As you are now in the care of the expert staff of the lodge, your Tour Director bids you a temporary farewell until the day you depart Kanha National Park for Delhi.

Large Male Leopard at Bandhavgarh

Enjoy a private jeep wildlife safari into the park this afternoon. The density of the tiger population at Bandhavgarh is relatively high. There are a large number of sloth bear and wild boar, and the possibility of spotting leopards and tigers is very good.

The park is also densely populated with prey for the tigers, such as the chital (Spotted Deer), sambar (Barking Deer), nilgai (Blue Bull), and chausingha (Four Horned Antelope). A large variety of different species of birds is also found here.

Days 4 & 5: Bandhavgarh. (B,L,D) Enjoy morning and afternoon private jeep wildlife safaris into the park on both days. In-between safaris, your lodge offers multiple activities, including al fresco dining with jungle views, wildlife lectures and videos, and village excursions.

Day 6: Bandhavgarh – Delhi. (B,L,D) Enjoy your last private jeep wildlife safari into the park this morning. After this you will return to your lodge to freshen up and enjoy breakfast.

Your Tour Director will re-join you here and assist with your check-out. You are driven to Jabalpur Airport for a non-stop no-frills flight to Delhi. A packed lunch is provided by your lodge for the journey.
