WILDLIFE >>    

There are many National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries in India and it is the only country in the world where you have the chance of seeing the majestic Bengal Tiger in the wild. With these animals now so threatened, many people working in the field of conservation believe that it is only a matter of time before there will be no wild tigers left. Tourism can help because if the tourist dollars put more money into the area than the poachers’ guns then perhaps there is a slim chance that some will survive. Recently there was a report that India would be closing its doors to all tourism within national parts where tigers are known to inhabit. This report was not true and at the moment the Indian authorities say they have no plans to close the parks. Nevertheless, time is running out – so if you want to see this wonderful animal and the spectacular areas they inhabit then this section of our website may help you.

It is not sensible to go to a wildlife area only wanting to see one animal such as the tiger. You need to go in with an open mind - enjoy the scenery and the experience and consider any wild animal sightings as a bonus. Other mammals you may see in India’s National Parks include leopard, panther, elephant, deer and antelope (sambar, chital, blackbuck), gaur, wild boar, striped hyena, sloth bear, jackal, flying fox, mongoose, langur and macaque. There are usually a great range of birds to be seen too – some rare and some endemic. Commonly seen are brahminy kites, bulbuls, hoopoes, storks, egrets, Indian rollers, drongos, flycatchers, parakeets, mynas, kingfishers and wagtails. India also has a rich variety of reptiles and amphibians including the gharial (crocodile).

Descriptions of the larger parks and the accommodation that may be found in the area are included in the relevant geographical section of this website. If you want to plan a trip around these parks then we hope that by listing them here it will help you to plan your holiday. If you click on the name it will take you to the relevant page.

Know Before You Go: to make an informed decision about the destination you are considering visiting citizens should take the advice of their respective governments. For British citizens that is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO website gives travel advice (health, safety, security etc) for every country. We recommend you look at this before booking any holiday and then again before departure. (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice)
