The most memorable part of the vacation was seeing Tigers in Kanha Park. A Truly awesome and moving experience. Read full review

The most amazing experience we have ever had. The organisation was superb, the guides (on the whole) were helpful and very knowledgeable. Our driver was first class, the Court Yard House was fantastic and the people there were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Read full review

There were too many to list! Seeing the great architectural icons of India with good guides, our skilful and kind driver for whom nothing was too much trouble, and the thrill of seeing not one, but two tigers on the same day in Kanha National Park. Read full review

It was a very memorable experience. There are so many things to take in and I have heard many say that it is an assault on the senses, the sights, sounds and smells can be overwhelming in both good and bad ways. We are really pleased we have been able to experience India. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet and people

This is a special trip where we are supporting an NGO called Jagrit who are involved in giving education, accommodation, clothing & food to small children who are found begging in railway stations.An amount of £5 per person goes to this NGO.

Another feature of this trip is that we use the old heritage palace hotel in Jaipur whose owners have maintained the building very well thus contributing to saving the old Indian architecture and culture. We use only local guides in Agra & Jaipur.

This trip aims to help and support a more responsible and sustainable approach to wildlife tourism in Central India by catering to small group of not more than 10-12 people, thus leaving behind the least impact on a particular destination. Our connection with the central Indian National parks & jungles date backs to 1932 when one of our family members Late Lakhpat Rai was the first chief conservator of Forest of Central India during British rule. The trained naturalists who will accompany you for game drives are from the local community who have developed the skills of communicating with clients over the years with our regular in house training.

Recently we installed the first ground water recharge unit in one of the lodges in Kanha which we will use. A part of the income (£5 per person) generated from this tour goes straight to the local tribal village school in Kanha. We will be visiting one such school during your trip.

The lodge in Kanha: The lodge you will stay in was constructed using locally available material and each cottage was built in the local style without chemical paints. They use waste wood boilers for heating and try to minimise electricity use by using energy saving lamps and solar, hurricane and earthen lamps in the night. There is no air-conditioning. In addition the lodge use recycled stationary, harvests rain water, uses soak pits to collect water and reuses waste water in the garden. All cleaning is done manually (no machines), organic waste is composted, food is cooked on LPG stoves and they do not allow music or televisions to keep noise pollution to a minimum.

The lodge is dedicated to the local upliftment of the area. They were the first in the history of Kanha National Park to train the locals in catering, house keeping, steward ship, guiding etc, all of whom had very basic schooling, if any at all. The staff is trained at the parent hotel in Jabalpur, and the majority (all drivers) come from the local community. They have financed one vehicle for a member of our staff who is from the community and use this for game drives. In addition, they do not have washing machines so they can provide work for the local community and have taught the local people cane weaving and pottery, the results of which are all used in the lodge. Raw materials are purchased locally where possible.
