Discover India’s unspoilt south on a trip that explores Periyar National Park, the backwaters of Kerala and its amazing bird life, elephants at Nagarhole National Park, and guided walks, game drives and boat tours in Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary.

Less travelled than northern India - as tigers are more elusive and difficult to spot in the south - this region is nevertheless a true gem when it comes to natural wonders and wildlife away from the crowd.

Elephants and birds are the key focus, with numerous mammal species such as Indian bison, sloth bear, chital, leopard, wild boar, giant flying squirrel, lion-tailed macaque and occasionally tiger. You travel through six different national parks and reserves on foot, by boat and vehicle safari - a complete wildlife immersion!
