An intoxicating cultural cocktail is the only way to describe India, in all its glory it is a place of astonishing diversity that will linger with you long after you leave its shores. A place where you will encounter an extraordinary spectrum of experiences, they will inspire you, frustrate you, thrill you and confound you and more often than not all at once. India can be quite challenging for the first time visitor as the poverty is confronting, bureaucracy frustrating and the crush of humanity can turn simple tasks into a huge battle - but it's all part of the Indian experience. It will fire your imagination and touch your soul like nowhere else on earth.
Visiting India's national parks is an unforgettable experience that is especially enjoyable for those who want to be close to nature. Spread across hundreds of kilometres, they encompass jungle vegetation and an abundance of wildlife, providing protected habitats for some the world's most endangered animals. All the parks have trained guides, so whether you choose an exhilarating jungle drive or serene bird watching tour you are in safe hands. Ranthambore National Park is one of the best nature reserves in the world, known for its 'friendly tigers'. Bandhavgarh Park is a favourite with wildlife photographers as here you have the best chance to see a tiger. Kanha National Park's lush bamboo forests and grassy meadows were the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling's celebrated novel 'The Jungle Book'. Pench National Park is popular with large herds of Indian bison and has one of the prettiest locations, Sitaghat.
