 India, is a vast and splendid land of divergent cultures and cuisines – or, as Paul William Roberts would say, to the “empire of the soul.” We’ll steer you through a spectacular labyrinth of sights and mysteries to bring out the wonders of this sub-continent: battlements of Rajasthan's opulent palaces, the Taj Mahal and Varanasi on the Ganges River in the north; wild jungles and tiger habitats of central India; and tropical Malabar backwaters and plantations of the Spice Hills in the south. You’ll be enveloped by the warmth and hospitality of India’s people: in the old city of Jodphur where you’re invited to the private home of the Sankahla family for lunch; in Bandhavharh and Kanha National parks when the local guides and conservationist detail passionately their struggle to bring tigers back from the brink of extinction; and in the rural villages of Rajasthan when we dine with royal family descendants who tell us about daily Indian life.

Tiger - A Love Story

      My life-long dream of seeing tigers in the wild took me to on a journey to the wilds of Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks in the exotic land of India. Kanha National Park is well known as the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s amazing story Jungle Book and offers enchanting scenic beauty and beautiful sunsets. Although I did not have the good fortune to see tigers at Kanha (many in our group did) I did see and abundance of other wildlife including sloth bear, sambar, spotted deer and plenty of playful monkeys. My dream of seeing a tiger came true in Bandavgarh and it was spectacular! I was completely over come with a sense of joy and wonder – a breathtaking, spine tingling experience. Once I started believing what I was seeing, a feeling of calm washed over me. I became very still and quietly enjoyed this magnificent cat. Dreams do come true! Anne Kutay Photo...

5 Reasons to Start Planning a Trip to India

Untitled-_20180122-202650_1
1. The Tigers They are big, beautiful and endangered, but travelers can still see tigers in India in the wild. There may be as few as 3,200 wild tigers left in existence, with an estimated 3,800 remaining in India. Three tiger subspecies (Bali, Javan and Caspian) have already gone extinct and a fourth (the South China tiger) the next on the brink. Illegal poaching is the primary cause of the tiger's decline, driven by black market demand for tiger skins, bones and organs. The wild tiger once roamed throughout much of Asia. Today, this magnificent cat remains in just 7% of its original habitat. Shrinking tiger habitat is becoming increasingly fragmented due to encroachment by commercial uses and expanding human populations around tiger habitat. 2. There is more to India than the Taj MahalEveryone goes on tours to India for the Taj Mahal but few know about the Chambal River Sanctuary, located nearby. It is a world apart from the famous mausoleum;...

Why India? Why Now?

  Why travel to India? Because India is a country beyond adjectives: colorful, vibrant and exciting is not enough to describe this unique country. The variety of experiences you can have here is never-ending. Where else can you find a noble and stunning white marble monument to love, a wild river where you can spot jackals, crocodiles and river dolphins, and tall brick-making chimneys set among colorful mud-walled villages all within a 2-hour drive?   Why India? Because India has an amazing variety of wildlife and its National Parks and reserves are some of its best-kept secrets. Wildland's Tigers and Travels in the north includes several reserves where you have an excellent chance of seeing a tiger, not to mention gazelles, deer, wild dogs, monkeys, lemurs and so many beautiful birds. The south is home to elephant herds as well as wildcats, spotted deer, bison, any number of reptiles and birds,...
