North-West India’S Rare Mammals

From: £Contact us

Rusty-spotted cat, desert wildcat, leopard, striped hyena, Indian wolf, collared hedgehog, chinkara, blackbuck and Asiatic wild ass are just some of the amazing mammals found in Rajasthan and Gujarat.

Visiting beautiful Velavadar National Park and the fascinating Little Rann of Kutch in the state of Gujarat, and both Jawai Leopard Conservation Reserve and Desert National Park in neighbouring Rajasthan, this tour is an exceptional exploration of the beautiful landscapes and the rare mammals of north-west India. Our route includes the huge concentration of wintering demoiselle cranes at Khichan and a host of other wonderful species from charming Indian and desert foxes to stately nilgai.
