India is renowned for its rich cultural diversity, unique ecosystems, and abundance of wildlife. India is well-known for having the world's largest tiger population and for being the only location where Asiatic Lions can be found. The Lions and Tigers tour is a perfect way to have a close encounter with these jungle kings.
Tigers have long been synonymous with India and have played an important role in the country's culture, whether as an emblem on several flags or as the country's national animal after independence. This tour brings you the best of India's national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, as well as the country's beautiful landscapes and rural heartlands. You will have exclusive jungle safaris at Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks which have the highest tiger density in India.
Asiatic Lions, on the other hand, is a highlight for wildlife enthusiasts since they are extremely endangered and can only be found in the Gir National Park in India.
