Experience an Indian Tiger Safari

Powerful, majestic and mysterious – the tiger is one of the most fascinating creatures in the world which is why catching a glimpse of one in its natural habitat is an incredible experience. Unfortunately, the chance of seeing this predator in the wild is fairly low, as their numbers have dropped significantly since the beginning of the 20th century.

However, in recent years, conservation work has meant that tigers are on the increase, and India is one of the best places in the world to spot them. Here, you can visit reserves that have conservation at their heart and allow you the rare and special opportunity to see these big cats.

Here are the best places in India to enjoy a tiger safari when you book flights to India with flydubai:

Bandhavgarh National Park, Madhya Pradesh

Few places in the world will give you a better chance of spotting a tiger than Bandhavgarh - it is one of the smaller Indian parks, but it has the highest density of tigers. It is also well known as the original home of the white tiger.

Situated within the Madhya Pradesh region of Central Northern India, here the ruins of Bandhavgarh Fort sit atop the 800m central plateau surrounded by rocky hilltops, and monsoon and sal forests.

As well as being home to approximately 90 tigers, you will also be able to see leopards, sambar deer and langur monkeys.

Kanha Tiger Reserve, Madyha Pradesh

Set in the Madhya Pradesh region, this is one of the biggest national parks in India, as well as being the setting for Rudyard Kipling’s classic ‘The Jungle Book.’

Make your way through grasslands, bamboo forests and streams in your quest to find tigers. Make sure you also keep an eye out for bison, hyenas, pythons and leopards as well as barasingha - the swamp deer - which this park is well known for.

The park is open from mid October until the end of June and the best months for spotting wildlife are October to April.

Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan

As well as being one of the best places to spot tigers in the wild, Ranthambore is also home to crocodiles, leopards, snakes, sloth bears and honey badgers.

One of the largest national parks in northern India, you can see the Bengal tigers cooling off in the lakes here or sunning themselves in the grassy fields.

Formed mainly of dry deciduous forest, this park has a mixture of natural and man-made historic monuments including the 700-foot tall Ranthambore Fort, which it is named after.

Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand

Originally called Hailey National Park when it opened in 1936, Corbett is the country’s oldest tiger park.
