Easy to Moderate
In order to participate in this trip, you must be able to walk unassisted for at least one mile over uneven terrain, climb a short ladder to get into and out of our safari vehicles, and tolerate daily excursions in extremely hot conditions. Although we avoid the hottest part of the day during our outings, note that temperatures can be very high and may exceed 110°F. Activities include short walking tours and wildlife drives in the park that 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 circumstances should take this into consideration. The trip also involves very early morning starts and long days filled with activities. Note that all activities are optional, and those who choose may opt out of game drives and relax at the hotel instead.
Important Information About This Trip
On this extension our primary focus is photographing India’s prolific wildlife. We will explore via open 4x4 and on foot, a unique and exhilarating way to experience the natural surroundings afforded only to visitors of this little known national park. Although a healthy population of tigers lives within Satpura's boundaries, they can be quite difficult to spot and sightings in this area are infrequent.
