How to Choose the Right Tiger Park in India India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining tigers. These majestic cats have been making a fantastic comeback due to conservation efforts after being on the verge of endangered just 20 years ago. Seeing one of these big cats is a once in a lifetime experience and there is no better place than on a trip to India to check that item off the bucket list. While it is easy to get lost in the eye of the tiger there are many other factors to take into account when choosing a park including but not limited to quality of lodges, naturalists as well as other flora and fauna. This blog is going to focus specifically on the national parks of Madhya Pradesh, considered the epicenter for tiger sightings in India. MP is also great because they offer full day permits if you’re really interested in seeing tigers. You get...

A Day in the Life of a Jungle Safari in India Days spent on jungle safaris in India are different than any other you’ll experience on your trip. With a minimum of 2 nights at a lodge and 3 highly recommended you’ll fall into a routine. You wake up with the sun and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and a full belly. You'll spend hours riding around in a jeep searching for animals and hours relaxing in your room or by the pool. I’ll try to outline to the best I can what a typical day looks like in the jungles of India. Note: These were the times for when I was visiting in October. The times change with the season as the park gate opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. In the heart of winter you’ll find later start times and earlier exit times. 5:00 – Wakeup knock on your door. 5:15 – Tea, coffee, and...

Harendra: A Guide Worth Celebrating Wildland prides itself on making local connections and supporting the communities we visit. One of the best ways we can do this is through partnering with local guides who have grown up in these different areas and know what makes them truly special. As Amit, our India contact states, "India is a land of experiences. You may have come 10 times to India, but it is based on the person who shows you India that will make all the difference. This person should become your best friend by Day 2." That's why we were so happy to receive a review from Wildland alums Faye and Lee Younker who recently traveled with us to Southern India (round 2 after they traveled to Northern India with us in 2012!) They had a wonderful time traveling through the national parks, cities, and backwaters of southern India, but what really struck us was this...

On the way to Dharavi we drove through the red-light district where young girls and women work the sex trade. This gave us the opportunity to talk about the reality of prostitution in India, about sex trafficking children and women here from Nepal, Bangladesh and elsewhere. It's important that we as travelers raise awareness and support organizations working to break up human trafficking by providing support for children and women to find safe harbor, break the sexual exploitation cycle and find a better life. Jen and Heather, our Yoga instructors, with Twist Vinyasa Yoga Edmonds came to this part of Mumbai before our yoga group met up in Goa and brought toys for the children of working prostitute mothers. Wildland Adventures is a signator to the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct and supports ECPAT - the international campaign to end child prostitution, child pornography and trafficking of children for sexual...
