Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore, Jaipur, Udaipur & Mumbai / Palaces & Tigers

Comprising of eight UNESCO sites, a famed National Park and a new wonder of the world; this journey explores both India’s man-made and natural royalty at its finest.

Begin within the winding streets of ancient and Imperial Delhi before an overnight stay revealing the majesty the Mughal Empire left behind in Agra, including a sunrise visit to the illustrious Taj Mahal. Venturing south-west, a detour to the abandoned city of Fetahpur Sikri precedes two days seeking the majestic Bengal tiger in the jungles of one of India’s largest National Parks, Ranthambore.

Onwards to Jaipur, walk between salmon hued abodes on an exploration of the city’s most prominent and dazzling architectures, before proceeding to the air of tranquillity that surrounds India’s answer to Venice, Udaipur. Finally, experience the two sides of modern Indian life in Mumbai, where an eye opening tour immerses you into the lives of the residents in both the city and its neighbouring slum.

Please note: all parks are closed from 30 June – 01 October.

Due to movement patterns, we recommend the best time for this itinerary is the end of March – April and November for the highest possible chance of seeing the tigers.

Agra

Moving south, the elegant palatial structures of Agra await. Wander the walls of Agra Fort, a fortress turned palace by its creator Emperor Akbar and still in use by the military today; before venturing to the Mehtab Magh gardens upon the banks of the River Yamuna. Standing parallel to the renowned Taj Mahal across the flowing water, the gardens were reconstructed to be perfectly aligned with those of the grand mausoleum, giving an impressive teaser of its glimmering marble façade.

Fetahpur Sikri & Ranthambore

Fetahpur Sikri & Ranthambore

Rise early to witness the beauty of the Taj Mahal at the break of dawn, seizing the opportunity to study the exquisitely carved inlay of this marbled tomb in the absence of turbulent crowds. Moving onward to a guided tour of the deserted city of Fetahpur Sikri, time to wander the red sandstone palaces and courtyards of this brief Mughal capital makes way for your train journey south in search of India’s regal big cats in Ranthambore National Park.

Journey through twisting Dhok trees and over vast plains dappled with lotus filled lakes on a quest to glimpse the elusive Bengal tiger. Accompanied by a park naturalist, sunrise and sunset game drives take you on a path to uncover some of India’s most famed animals, from leopards and striped hyena to Sambar deer and Sloth bears. Although considered the best place to spot tigers, the park is also known for its ancient temples and crumbling ruins scattered about the bewitching scenery. (FB)

Jaipur

Leaving the wilderness behind, drive across the desert to India’s first planned metropolis, the rosy ‘pink city’ of Jaipur. Explore the turmeric courtyards of Amber Fort following a detour to the opulent Hawa Mahal, better known as the Palace of Winds for its 953 honeycomb like windows that allow a breeze to flow though the interior. Later wander the grounds of the City Palace, where rare manuscripts, costumes and paintings can be found within the palace’s pear drops walls; while the neck aching sundial of the Jantar Mantar astronomical observatory, constructed by Jaipur’s founder, can be found just a stone’s throw away.

Udaipur

Nestled beside the shimmering banks of three lakes lies Rajasthan’s water city, Udaipur. Here, a mystical ambience sweeps between the pale marble architecture; including the beguiling City Palace and the hand carved figures of the Jagdish Temple. At Fetah Sagar lake, walk in the footsteps of royal women beneath the palms at Sahelion-ki-Bari gardens, unearthing its many fountains and delicately chiselled elephant sculptures.
