Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate
You must be able to walk unassisted at least 1 mile over uneven terrain, climb stairs at some accommodations, and climb a short ladder to get in and out of our safari vehicles, in order to participate in this trip. Activities include a city walking tour that could be up to three miles in length, walking with luggage through multiple airports, and walking on sometimes dark and uneven paths at accommodations. Wildlife drives in the parks take place on very rough and bumpy dirt roads, with many ruts and potholes, in potentially extremely dusty conditions. Those with back problems or other health issues that could be exacerbated by such conditions should take this into consideration. The trip also involves many very early morning starts and long, full days of activities with little down time. Some drives between locations are long (5-6 hours) and can occur in chaotic local driving conditions.
Important Information About This Trip
Most of our guests travel to India for encounters with the country’s unique wildlife. While the nature experiences here are indeed remarkable, there is a fundamental difference between the wildlife experience of the Indian jungle and that found in Africa. At times, guests that are lured to India by tourist brochures promising “tiger safaris” can be disappointed to see fewer animals than they expected, or at least fewer than they might normally see in Africa. It is not that the surviving jungles are thinly populated, but, similar to places like Costa Rica or Panama where the forest is thick with vegetation, the creatures have mastered the art of camouflage and deception and can be extremely difficult to spot. At Nat Hab we design our itineraries to capitalize on the best areas to spot tigers. But various factors can affect potential sightings, including inclement weather, which creates small pockets of water that allow the animals to remain hidden in the forest. There is no doubt that natural India, and the forests which Kipling immortalized, await discovery. The secret for visitors lies in the assistance of expert guides, as well as knowing what to expect and in understanding that the privilege of stepping into a pure and untouched world is a reward in itself.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Delhi in time to participate in a guided tour that starts at approximately 1:30 pm on Day 1. You are free to depart Delhi anytime after 9 pm on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
