Indian Samosas Recipe Samosas are one of India's most iconic appetizers. Religion, food, temperature, language change drastically as you travel throughout India but samosas are perhaps the most ubiquitous street food in this diverse nation. What's not to love? These fluffy, flaky, handheld pockets hide mounds of spiced vegetables and are super addiciting. Good luck eating just one! Dimple and her husband Terun run the Kanha Jungle Lodge. They’re wonderful friends of ours here at Wildland and while we love searching the dense jungle with Tehrun or talking birds with their son Jai another reason we cherish our visits to Kanha Jungle Lodge is for Dimple’s spectacular cooking. She’s an artist in the kitchen, tries to use as many fresh and seasonal ingredients as she can, and creates culinary delights you would never expect in the jungles of India.   Dimple’s samosas are always a crowd favorite. They’re light and crispy on the...

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...

How I Fell in Love with Jungle Safaris in India I had never been on a safari until 2 weeks ago. It’s not that I don’t love the outdoors, I spend as much time as I can outside and all my vacations revolve around sleeping under the stars. I love walking the trails, climbing to the highest peak in a range, or kayaking down a river. So, I never understood safaris and this idea of going to a national park and driving around in a jeep all day. It seemed counter intuitive to everything I love about wild, natural spaces. Then, I spent 2 weeks on jungle safari in India and my whole philosophy changed. I not only understand the drive (pun intended) to go on safari but think it’s a must-do on everyone’s list for the following reasons: Naturalists: Watching the naturalists work was perhaps my favorite part of the safaris. They drive a car on bumpy, winding dirt...

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...
