Wildlife Tourism - Teams, our aspirations and we the people? Is it just a concept that was put into motion by some divine entity? Most people have trouble defining nature, but as they say, "I know it when I see it." But today we don’t get to see much of it and we carve for it.

DAY 01 ARRIVE DELHI

Assistance will be provided on arrival at the hotel during the check in.

Delhi - the capital of India, is a fascinating city with  complexities and contradictions,  beauty and dynamism, where the past co-exists with the present. Many dynasties ruled from here and the city is rich in the architecture of its monuments. Delhi is not only the present metropolis of India but also a Necropolis. Because of its location, being on the banks of the  river Yamuna, many cities have risen and fallen over the last five millenniums.

Overnight in Delhi.  THE PARK/ INTERCONTINENTAL.

DAY 02 DELHI
Morning we will take you on a full day tour of Delhi.

First you will be taken on the tour of the old Delhi – also known as Mughal Delhi. On arrival, you will be taken on cycle rickshaw to the Red Fort - Shah Jehan’s elegant citadel in red sandstone. The fort is entered from the Lahori Gate and leads into the  halls of Private and Public Audience and then to the beautiful Pearl Mosque built by Shah Jahan’s son, Aurangazeb, the last of the “Great Mughals”.  Very near the Fort is the Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque), India’s largest mosque, also built by Shah Jahan.

The cycle Rickshaw ride will meander through the little lanes of the Old City of Delhi, where time has virtually stood still for hundreds of years.  This ride will be most fascinating as you get a first-hand view of the merchants, the little food and artifact stalls and the teeming population, busy in their daily activities.

The rickshaws will drop you at Raj Ghat- Mahatama Gandhi’s memorial.

Afternoon you will be taken on a tour of New Delhi also known as Luyton’s Delhi - visiting the Qutab Minar, a tower of victory built in the 12th century and India Gate ‑ the war memorial.

Rest of the day at leisure for independent activities.

Overnight in Jaipur. SAMODE HAVELI.

DAY 04 JAIPUR
Morning drive to the old city and stop at the Hawa Mahal, or the “Palace of the Winds”.

Visit this fort and also the temple of Amba (the Mother Goddess), the patron deity of the Maharajas.  Ride an elephant to ascend the hill on which the Fort is situated.

Ranthambore : With an area of 400 sq. km encompassing rocky hill crests which descend to open valleys between the Aravalli and Vindhya ranges, dotted with water pools and fruit trees, this park gets its name from the thousand year old fortress, which looms above the forest. Well known for the diurnal activity of tigers, Ranthambore is a very special and unusual area where a natural present meets a historical past. Sambar, cheetal, chinkara, nilgai and languor. The elusive leopard and tigers are found in this reserve with tourists standing a very good chance of seeing tigers during the day.

Once it has been sighted, a radio message is flashed to the Forest Ranger, who in turn informs the visitors in their jeeps, who are then taken on elephant-back, into the bush, to see the elusive Tiger.
