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.
As well as paying homage to Kipling’s wildlife experiences in India, this itinerary includes cycling in Kanha to heading out on boat and kayaking safaris in Satpura; there are plenty of fun outdoor activities.
- Tiger spotting in the Pench Tiger Reserve: give yourself the best chance 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.
- It is 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 there are almost no alternatives in some locations, such as Satpura.
