Location of Adventure
India
Group Size Limit
6 Travelers
Traveling in a small group is the best way to experience nature intimately, and this is especially true for our photographic adventures. With just six travelers per departure, and only two guests per safari vehicle you’re assured plenty of space and personalized attention. As a small group, we maintain the flexibility to adapt to changing conditions in a way that maximizes the photo opportunities – we'll depart early in the morning to chase the best light, remain at a site of specific photographic interest to fully explore the potential, or move to a new destination when desired.

Physical Requirements
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
Most of our guests travel to India for encounters with the country’s wildlife. While the nature experiences here are indeed remarkable, there is a fundamental difference between a safari in the Indian jungle and a typical safari in Africa. At times, guests 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 with wildlife, 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 difficult to spot, even in the summer season. At Nat Hab we design our itineraries to capitalize on the best conditions to spot and photograph tigers — we don’t think you'll find a better chance for viewing tigers than this trip affords. 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, rather than being forced into the open to frequent water holes. The secret to a successful Indian nature adventure lies with the expertise of our Expedition Leaders and park rangers, as well as knowing what to expect, and in understanding that the privilege of stepping into a wild and untouched natural realm is a reward in itself.

Please note also that there are five different driving routes inside Ranthambore National Park. Because the park service allocates a route at random for each vehicle during our wildlife drives, there is no guarantee that any of our vehicles will get a different route every time. Please be aware, it is possible that the vehicle to which you are assigned could take the same route inside the park multiple times, and that these routes may not correspond to suspected tiger locations. Unfortunately Natural Habitat has no control over this process, which is set and managed by the park service. Though unlikely, it is also possible that we may see film crews during our time in the park. These crews pay an exorbitant price to film inside Indian parks and, as a result, they do enjoy certain advantages that a regular tourist does not, such as spending the entire day inside the park and having access to places where others cannot go.
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 at anytime on Day 1 of the itinerary. You are free to depart anytime after 8 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.
