India

We love a safari in India as much as any in Africa, but it’s a safari of a different flavor. There are tigers, leopards, bears, antelope, and elephants, but you can also eat incredible food and see cultural icons like Varanasi, Jaipur, and the Taj Mahal.

Tiger safaris operate in the dry season from October to April, and the best months are December through March. Like gorilla trekking, you’ll need a permit to enter a specific tiger reserve zone at a particular time to control visitor numbers. Popular parks like Ranthambore can still feel busy, but there are over 50 reserves in the country to explore. Wildlife enthusiasts will want to extend their trip to see the one-horned rhinos in Kaziranga National Park or track snow leopards in the mountains of Ladakh.
