Reviewed on 01 May 2017 by Clive FreemantleIt would be impossible to identify a single highlight- there were so many! Seeing so many leopards, the Asiatic lions, the nesting hornbills, saving a Blackbuck fawn from a pariah dog, the simply superb staff, some truly amazing dishes we tried and people we encountered- simply too much and many to mention.

Reviewed on 17 Dec 2012 by Gillian BrandWhere to start! The lions, the leopard and her cub, the jungle cat kitten, or the magical sighting of wolves. The insight into Gujarati culture was also unforgettable and we were grateful to our driver, Mr Khuman Singh, for not only finding us so much wildlife but also introducing us to local people from all walks of life.

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 peopleThis particular trip is a unique in its own way as the destinations being covered in this tour are all in remote areas where the real source of income is from tourism industry. We are using only heritage, palaces & the jungle lodges owned by the local community. These old heritage buildings have now converted into hotels, so tourism helps conserve the architecture helps the locals in getting good jobs. All the accommodation which we are using have local staff.
All our accommodations are eco friendly and have used the local material & handicrafts. Our accommodations are equipped with energy saving lights, solar hot water systems & ground water recharge system. We will be using through out local guides who are now trained in their field and will certainly make a difference in this trip. We use only local transport throughout in this trip. The drivers and guides are very well paid and helps a lot in the upliftment of the local economy.
When we are on safari guests are advised to bring back waste to their accommodation. We stick to the trails and advise not to harm the local flora & fauna. All the guests are briefed before entering the park not to get down from their respective vehicles. Smoking is strictly banned while on safari. We are supporting an NGO called Jagriti who supports and helps the poor orphan children in giving them shelter and education. An amount of £5 per person will go this institution.
