Corbett National Park is staggeringly beautiful and lies in the Siwalik Hills, at the foot of the Himalayas, in Uttaranchal. Kanha National Park is set in the heart of Madhya Pradesh and contains a hugely varied selection of game, especially tigers. Bandhavgarh National Park is situated in the north of Madya Pradesh - originally the private hunting preserve of the Maharaja of Rewa, it is now one of the best place on earth to spot tigers both from a vehicle and elephant back. Ranthambore National Park is situated on the south-eastern most ridges of the Aravalli hills and Nagarhole National Park is one of a group of parks situated in the forests of southern Karnataka. When travelling in Rajasthan between the bustling cities of Udaipur and Jodhpur, stop for a night or two at the elegant Jawai Leopard Camp. This unique wildlife experience offers a fascinating glimpse into the unique environment in which the local farmers live side by side with these fascinating creatures, amongst the rugged beauty of the Aravalli Hills.

Whether in search of the infamous Indian tiger or the vast array of bird life that calls it home, the subcontinent offers a sublime range of luxury wildlife experiences.

Madhya Pradesh, at the heart of India, brings Rudyard Kipling's 'The Jungle Book' to life with lush foliage and numerous animal species, especially the elusive Indian tiger. Discover Singinawa, a family run lodge set in 55 acres of private wilderness, which has become one of Kanha National Park's premier Eco-luxury properties. The national park is also home to Sher Garh, an intimate 6 tented camp set near a natural water reserve that attracts an array of bird life, such as kingfishers and commorants and sees the seasonal nesting of hundreds of egrets. Situated right at the heart of the park is Taj Banjaar Tola, two tented luxury camps set along the edge of the Banjaar River. Bandhavgarh National Park is also considered one of the best vantage points to see the Tiger and at Taj Mahua Kothi you can reside in one of the twelve charming guest suites with private courtyards and beautiful interiors. Samode Safari is also a popular choice.

It is not just the jungle that boasts stunning wildlife experiences. JAWAI Leopard Camp sits between the cities of Jodhpur and Udaipur, in an unexplored area of scrubland, surrounded by the Aravelli hill range. Here guests can enjoy an almost 75% chance of see leopards in the wild and can meet the local Rabari tribesmen who have lived alongside the wildlife for centuries.

Ranthambore National Park is considered by many to be one of the prettiest reserves and it perfectly located in Rajasthan, which can easily be incorporated into a wider Rajasthan itinerary. Here The Oberoi, Vanyavilas offers a very regal experience with hand embroidered tents, four poster beds and roll top baths.

Another unique experience can be found at rustic Diphlu River Lodge situated in the Northeastern state of Assam, in Kaziranga National Park, which is home to the one-horned Rhinoceroses. The Assam Bengal Navigation Cruise takes guests on calming boat journeys through other remote areas of the state, where travelers can choose numerous land excursions or just watch as the area's wild residents make the most of the rivers.
