Our Journey begins with a brief sightseeing of Mumbai and quickly moves to Madhya Pradesh ( central India)- Kipling Country. This is the land of Jungle Books, where the descendants of Shere Khan the tiger still prowl. For many observers, this is the true land of the tiger: not only does it have the highest tiger population in India, it also has some of the most exciting habitats anywhere in the tiger’s range. The open meadows, sal and bamboo forest of Kanha and teak jungles of Pench , creating landscapes of infinite beauty! Barking deer watch you pass; sambar seem immense and dark; Giant squirrels in the canopy of the trees hop from branch to branch and tree to tree; racquet-tail drongos shrill loudly and flash their peculiar tails; everywhere one senses the presence of the tiger and expects to encounter it around each corner…
