For wildlife lovers, nothing is as alluring as the big cats of India. This journey takes us deep inside India’s western wilderness. The region is highly diverse, with unique landscapes that are primarily dry and arid, dominated by the Thar Desert. Along with the desert are enchanting dry deciduous forests, shrubland, vast savanna grasslands and endless saltpans.
A vast variety of wildlife lives here, including three of the four Big Cats in the country – the Asiatic Lion, Bengal Tiger and Indian Leopard. Interestingly we also have the opportunity to see four kinds of canids on this trip – Indian Wolf, Striped Hyena, Bengal Fox and Jackal. Along with these predators are other mammals such as the Asiatic Wildass, blackbuck, spotted deer, sambhar deer and many more.
Western India is also an essential destination on the Central Asian flyway, and thousands of migratory birds congregate in the waterbodies, making it an absolute goldmine for birders. The arid saltpans are dotted with lakes that are breeding grounds for flamingos, cranes and pelicans. Several raptors are found here, including harriers, vultures, falcons and eagles. On a lucky day, we may chance upon the highly endangered Great Indian Bustard, a bird endemic to our country.
Come with us as we peel back the different layers of India for you. Wherever you are from, you will find something that touches your heart in India.
