Reviews for Tiger and wildlife safari, India


review 2 Jan 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing tigers in the wild - we had a few really good sightings, meeting like-minded fellow travelers, fantastic food, stunning sunsets.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

There are tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms so take your favourite tea, coffee, chocolate etc with you. For winter departures: - take good warm layers and also gloves - I forgot to take my fingerless-gloves-with-mitten-covers whch would have been ideal to keep wamr but still use the camera. - also take a warm (pref padded) coat that you can wear four layers underneath - you will need them all, and also your bedroom blanket for the morning game-drives at 6am! - ask the group leader for a fan heater in the room. Take some casual slip-on shoes for getting from your room to the dining hall.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes definitely all the camp staff were locals and also the park guides and drivers The recent government restrictions on how much of the National Parks (20%) can be used for tourism is an interesting move, and the restrictions should benefit tiger conservation, but only time will tell whether this comes at the expense of the local economy.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a good vacation - on the downside a long distance for just a week (2 flights) but on the upside the park is not too commercialised and the chances of seeing tigers are good there. Great food esp for vegetarians. The vast majority of the other tourists there were Indian families, and hopefully this will be a valuable education for the next generation who will need to carry on the conservation work.
