India’s spectacular diversity of landscape is home to some of the world’s most iconic cats. This unique tour takes you in search of snow leopard in Ladakh, Asiatic lion in Gujarat and both leopard and tiger in the southern state of Karnataka.

Building on years of success with cats in India, we set out on the ultimate cat challenge: to see this fabulous country's four largest, most charismatic cats in a single tour. From a comfortable lodge in Ulley, Ladakh, we explore rugged mountains for the snow leopard. From here we travel to India's far west, where Gir National Park is the home of the Asiatic lion. Our final stop is beautiful Nagarhole National Park in South India, one of the finest sites for leopard and the exquisite tiger.
