Follow the footsteps of Rudyard Kipling and embark on an extraordinary journey across Madhya Pradesh. Visit the wildlife park that inspired The Jungle Book, Pench National Park; spot a living Shere Khan tiger and see the cheeky monkeys in their natural environment. With cycling, trekking and camping adventures to boot, this is a holiday of a lifetime.
This suggested itinerary is a homage to Kipling’s wildlife experiences in India. It involves explorating national parks and cycling in Kanha to heading out on boat and kayaking safaris in Satpura; there are plenty of fun outdoor activities included.
- Tiger spotting in the Pench Tiger Reserve: give yourself the best change to observe the king of the Indian jungle in his natural habitat.
- Boating safaris in Satpura National Park – with only 6 jeeps for the park, you’ll be guaranteed an exclusive experience.
- An extraordinary trekking adventure into the heart of the countryside – a magical experience you’ll remember for a very long time.
As with all of our itineraries, this can be adapted to suit or we can tailor-make your holiday from scratch. If you have more time, we’d thoroughly recommend stopping for a few days in Bhopal, a fascinating and historical city, often overlooked by visitors.
There is a little scope for looking at alternative accommodation options too, though in some locations, such as Satpura there are almost no alternatives.
