A wildlife safari to Central India can be a thrilling and unforgettable experience for nature enthusiasts and wildlife lovers. Central India is home to several national parks and wildlife reserves, including Bandhavgarh National Park, Kanha National Park, and Pench Tiger Reserve amongst others.
These parks are known for their diverse and rich wildlife, including the majestic Bengal tiger, Indian leopard, sloth bear, Indian gaur, and barasingha as well as several species of deer and antelope. The parks also have a vibrant birdlife, making them a haven for birdwatchers.
India also offers a unique opportunity to witness the elusive snow leopard in its natural habitat. Visit Ladakh, located in the Himalayas in the northernmost region of India to experience local, Buddhist culture and search for the “gray ghost”. You will stay in a small village, high in the mountains, hosted by locals, who directly benefit from the snow leopard and the tourism to view them.
Snow leopard safaris usually involve trekking through the snow-capped mountains, led by experienced guides and trackers. Apart from snow leopards, visitors can also witness other exotic wildlife like the Tibetan wolf and blue sheep as well as several species of birds.
Combined with its rich cultural heritage, a safari to India is a special experience and should be on everyone’s list of places to visit.
