To provide the perfect introduction to Indian heritage and culture, this tour begins with a two-night stay in Delhi where sights such as Raj Ghat – Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial, spectacular Red Fort – built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in the 17th century as a ceremonial and political centre of Mughal government, Jama Masjid – India’s biggest mosque also built around the same time, and the splendid India Gate - built as a memorial for 82,000 soldiers who died in the first World War. The following day we board a plane for Guwahati, the capital of Assam, in the northeast. Famous for its tea plantations this otherwise little-known region is home to Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the sub-continent’s premier destinations for wildlife enthusiasts. We spend three days here, taking a series of game drives including one on elephant back adding more thrill to the adventure, into the lush grassland looking for one-horned rhinos (Kaziranga is home to over two-thirds of the world’s population of rhinos) and tigers and other spectacular species.
A boat trip offers opportunities to spot rare Gangetic dolphins. Some 500km to the southwest in the vast swamps of the Ganges delta, Sunderbans National Park is densely covered by mangrove forests - a refuge for a significant population of Bengal Tigers. We travel into this remote water-world by boat and experience the wilderness to the full by spending two nights in a forest lodge.
Our trip concludes in the metropolis of Kolkata that is regarded as the country’s pre-eminent intellectual centre. We spend a day exploring this fascinating Bengali city, the second-largest in India, with visits to the mysterious Kali temple – built to worship Goddess Kali; and the gorgeous Victoria Memorial - a large marble building dedicated to the memory of Queen Victoria, and now a museum.
