Detailed Itinerary

Day 01~Arrive Delhi

We will arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport in the late evening and, after going through Customs and collecting our baggage, we will be transferred to our hotel.

Accommodation in the Oberoi Maidens or similar.

Day 02~Tour of Delhi

After a relaxed breakfast, we’ll have an orientation meeting and then set out to tour the ancient city. Many experts believe that Delhi (the “heart”) was settled as early as 1400 BC. Defensive walls, still breached by 7 gates were constructed between 1638 and 1650 during the rule of Mughal leader Shah Jahan.

Humayun’s Tomb is a massive octagonal edifice, built by Haji Begum, Humayun’s senior widow in honor of her husband the second Mughal Emperor. Her design, which offers a superb example of early Mughal architecture, would have a great influence on Shah Jahan, who later designed and built the Taj Mahal. The approach to the tomb is through a succession of formal gardens, which are in the process of being restored in the classic Persian style.

We will also visit Qutub Minar, an impressive red sandstone tower inscribed with Islamic writings. It was built to commemorate the defeat of local rulers of Delhi by the Muslim general Qutb-ud-din-Aibak, at the end of the twelfth century. We will then drive to Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque). This is the largest mosque in India is a notable example of Delhi’s distinctive Indo-Islamic architecture. Another highlight of our day will be a bicycle-rickshaw ride from this great mosque through the bustling and colorful market lanes of Chandni Chowk to the Red Fort.

We’ll explore other parts of Old Delhi as well as the formal government buildings of “new” Delhi, constructed by the British in the 1920s. Nearby, in the parkland of Raj Ghat we’ll have time to visit the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi and to look at some of the local bird life. We should find Hoopoe, Common Mynah, House Crow and Rose-collared Parrot as well as egrets and other waders in ponds.

Accommodation in the Oberoi Maidens or similar.

Meals : Breakfast
Day 03~Drive to Jaipur (260 km/63 miles, 5 hrs.)

Following breakfast, we set out for Jaipur- the rose-pink capital of Rajasthan, surrounded on all sides by rugged hills and crowned with forts. About 7 miles before Jaipur, we stop in the Amber Village to visit the most famous attraction of Jaipur- the Amber Fort, also known as Amer Fort. The ancient citadel, situated on the top of high hill above the village was the capital of the ruling Kachhwa clan of Amber from 1037 to 1727 AD. The Fort is known for its artistic style, blending both Hindu and Mughal elements.

The fort can be reached on foot through stairways or by 4WD or we can take an elephant back ride in the Royal style! Once on the top, we will be amazed by the massive structure, exquisite paintings on the walls depicting the temperament of the Rajputs who were adventurous, revolutionary and self-indulgent, intricate carvings on the walls and ceilings and minute mirror work to the grand appearance and royalty of the halls. We spend good amount of time exploring the ruins and remains of the fort, the magnificent gates and courtyards, the chambers of the King and their queens and the secret pathways; each piece of architecture carries the heroic stories of the kings and the battles, friendship and rivalry and love and romance. Overwhelmed by the massiveness of the fort and its stories, we descend and continue on our trip to Jaipur.

We check in our accommodation at Trident Hotel, that faces the beautiful Man Sagar Lake and the island palace of Jal Mahal. After some rest, we ferry to the impressive Jal Mahal which means “palace in the water”. The palace, after being in ruins for more than 2 centuries, has been restored recently and opened for travelers. Rest of the day is for you to pursue your own interests. Time permitting, you can visit the city center and browse the colorful markets. Johari market is famous for traditional jewelry products, colorful saree dresses and vibrant ambience.

Overnight Trident Hotel.

Meals : Breakfast
Day 04~Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jantar Mantar and Narhet Rural Village excursion

Following breakfast, we set out to explore the wonders of the pink city. We drive into the city center and begin from Hawa Mahal, which means the “Palace of Wind”. The palace has a beehive like structure, made up of interplay of red and pink sand stone, meticulously outlined with white border with elaborate latticed facade behind which hid the cloistered ladies of the court and watched the daily happenings in the street below.

Next, we visit City Palace which is a massive complex of superb palaces, gardens and courtyards, decorative art and carved doorways. We visit the museum of the palace that preserves collections of rare documents, shields, uniforms, rugs and paintings. The royalties of the Jaipur still reside in a part of the palace but the residential areas are not accessible.

We walk to the adjacent Jantar Mantar which is an astronomical observatory that exhibits a collection of architectural astronomical instruments. The observatory consists of fourteen major geometric devices for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars' location as the earth orbits around the sun, ascertaining the declinations of planets, and determining the celestial altitudes and related ephemerides. The observatory has been listed in the UNESCO’s world heritage site.

Afternoon, we take an excursion to the rural village of Narhet. It takes 45 minutes to 1 hr. to reach the village. In the village, we smudge our hands in mud for making pots, try some knots on loom for making rugs and make some baskets. Villagers in Narhet are great people, full of zeal and gusto, their warm welcome is quite appreciable and Rajputana culture is an exemplary. We can lease our taste buds with some local spicy eatables prepared on charcoal oven in front of your eyes and try some mehndi art, along with tea and then a performance that brings the sun down and it's time for us to ride back to our hotel.

Overnight Trident Hotel.

Meals : Breakfast
Day 05~Drive from Jaipur to Ranthambore (190 km, 3.5 hrs.)

After an early breakfast, we bid farewell to the Pink City of Jaipur and head out to Ranthambore- the land of Royal Bengal Tiger. The road goes through the semi-arid countryside giving us a first-hand experience of India beyond the cities. Acacia trees and desert scrub are being irrigated and transformed into farmland, and camels pull their rickety loads along the highway unconcerned with the honking truck traffic. The colorful turbans and costumes change from region to region and from village to village, and the brightly colored saris stand out against the dry landscape.

We arrive at our accommodation at Sawai Madhopur around noon. We will have time to take shower and sumptuous lunch before we embark on an afternoon safari which starts at 3 PM during winter and 4 PM in Spring and Summer. Ranthambore, on the fringes of the Vindhya Hills in Eastern Rajasthan protects 400 square kilometers of rocky hill and plateau country in dry deciduous jungle. A formidable fortress high above the plains provides a dramatic backdrop for viewing game and a glimpse into Rajasthan’s valorous past. Although it is one of the smallest reserves in India, Ranthambore is famous as the foremost tiger sanctuary in the country. In addition to Bengal Tiger, we hope to see an impressive array of wildlife including Langur, Sambar, Nilgai, Chital, Wild Boar, Jackal, Fox and Sloth Bear. We will also be looking for local avian specialties, among the 300 species of birds in the park. Our lodging for the night is a former hunting lodge set in extensive grounds. In the evening, we will take a leisurely stroll in the local village and the neighborhood.

Overnight Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge.

Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 06~Ranthambore National Park

Following an early morning cup of tea or coffee, we embark in the morning adventure in an open vehicle, for our game drive in the nearby National Park. Here, where maharajahs formerly had their hunting preserves, we’ll watch for tigers in addition to their plentiful prey. Small lakes with stone pavilions and gazebos provide habitat for waders, ducks, storks and crocodiles. The morning safari will be from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (during summer) and 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (during winter). After returning to our lodge, we will have our breakfast. Between now and lunch, we will have time to rest, write journal or postcards or chitchat with our guide and naturalists or take a walk in the neighborhood.

After lunch, again we embark on our safari adventure. We will go to the different zone of the park now. Actually, each safari will be in different zones so that you have an opportunity to explore the diverse flora and fauna of the park. In the evening, sit around the bonfire and chitchat with other guests and naturalists and tell your stories of the day and listen to others who had been in the different zones.

Overnight Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge.

Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 07~Ranthambore to Keoladeo Ghana National Park (Bharatpur, 167 km, 4.5 hrs.)

This morning, we will take one more safari and try our luck for the Royal Bengal Tiger! Remember, you are in the real wild and not in a zoo and tiger sighting is a mere chance. A tiger is a nocturnal animal and stays mostly hiding during the day light. We return to our lodge by 10:30 a.m. and after a late morning breakfast, we pack up and head out on the way to Bharatpur National Park, also known as Keoladeo Ghana National Park which lies beside the Jaipur-Agra Highway. If we arrive there during day light, we will take rickshaw ride through the park. Remember the park gate closes at 6 p.m.

Keoladeo Ghana NP, a small but important bird sanctuary. Originally a duck-shooting preserve, the wetland is now a world-renowned birding destination. During the winter months, migratory birds arrive in vast numbers to swell the large number of native species. We’ll walk or take a bicycle rickshaw along the narrow road to the open wetlands at the end. Common, Pied and White-fronted Kingfishers are plentiful. Painted Storks nest and roost in the trees while White-breasted Waterhens and Purple Swamphen stalk across the mats of water hyacinths. Woolly-necked and Black-necked Storks patrol the shallow water meadows. The crowning glory of this sanctuary is the bird of prey population - the sky is rarely empty of soaring raptors. The usual eagle species found here include Imperial and Steppe Eagles. Long-billed and Red-headed Vultures are also resident. We will keep a lookout for Wild Boar, as well as Spotted Mongoose, Sambar and Nilgai. Rock Pythons can also be seen sunning themselves on rock piles. We will most certainly see the huge Sarus Crane and hopefully, Bar-headed Geese.

Overnight the Bagh Hotel.

Day 08~Drive from Bharatpur to Fatehpur Sikri to Agra (62 km, 1.5 hrs.)

We can visit the bird sanctuary this morning, if we couldn't the previous day. Otherwise, we pack and leave Bharatpur for Agra. We travel via the ruins of Fatehpur Sikri (22 km). This extensive walled complex was built by Akbar to commemorate the birth of his son, but was abandoned by the court only 14 years after its completion due to the scarcity of the water. It is now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After spending 45 minutes to an hour in the ruins of Fatehpur Sikri, we continue on our journey to Agra (40 km) - the land of Taj Mahal- one of the new 7 wonders of the modern world! We check in our accommodation and after wash and change, we will set out to explore the highlights of Agra.

We start from Agra Fort an impressive Mughal architecture that became the base of the Mughal Empire under successive generations. Initiated by Emperor Akbar who erected the walls and gates and the first buildings on the eastern banks of Yamuna River and major constructions were done by Emperor Shah Jahan. Agra Fort is a massive fortified city extended in 94-acre (380,000 m2) of land, with its chord lying parallel to the Yamuna River and its walls are seventy feet high. Double ramparts have massive circular bastions at intervals, with battlements, embrasures, machicolations and string courses. At the end of his life, Shah Jahan was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb and died in Musamman Burj - a tower with marble balcony from where he could gaze Taj Mahal.

We’ll also visit one of Agra’s marble emporiums, which will give us an appreciation of the marble inlay work that we will see on our later visit to the Taj Mahal. We’ll visit the Taj Mahal in the late afternoon, when the colors of the sunset cause it to glow. Built by Emperor Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj is the world’s greatest monument to love. This immense tomb, which seems to float on its white marble plinth, took 22 years to build and was completed in 1653 AD. Designed to be perfectly symmetrical, it is surrounded by gardens and water features, and overlooks the Yamuna River. If your visit in Agra falls around the full moon days, you can take an optional tour of Taj Mahal at night. The color of the Taj Mahal dramatically changes and glows when the moon lights fall on it.

Overnight Wyndham Grand Hotel.

Day 09~Train to Jhansi, visit Orcha and continue to Khajuraho

Following early morning breakfast, we are transferred to the Agra Cantt station. We board on 8: 17 a.m. air-conditioned chair car of Shatabdi Express train for Jhansi and arrive at Jhansi at 10:47 a.m. Upon arrival, we meet our coach and driver and then we take a short drive (10 miles) to the picturesque town of Orchha which was once the capital of Bundelkhand region. We visit the historical monuments of Orcha that still retain their pristine charm and narrate stories of war and peace, of love and destruction over hundreds of years.

We visit the Jahangir Mahal - most admired of the palaces of Orchha, built by Bir Sing Deo in honour of the state visit of Emperor Jahangir in the 17th century, the Raj Mahal, an earlier building adorned by colorful murals and numerous temples in the complex. Overwhelmed by the vastness and stories of Orcha, we continue on our trip to Khajuraho- the city of kamasutra temples!

We arrive at Khajuraho in mid-afternoon. We wash and change and soon rush to explore the beautiful temples with erotic sculptures in Sandstone. The temples here are not for worships but for arts of love making. The 9th to 12th century temples of Khajuraho are the testament of the architectural geniuses during the times of Chandela dynasty. Situated in Madhya Pradesh, India, Khajuraho oozes with passion, eroticism, dance and music and other finesses of creative arts depicted in sculpture and images of the temples. Of the total 85 temples only 22 of them exists and are divided into three groups- the Western, Southern and Eastern group of temples. We visit the Western group of temples that comprise the majority of the temples and among the most beautiful ones.

Overnight in the Ramada Hotel.

Meals : Breakfast
Day 10~Day12 Bandhavgarh National Park (260km, 6-7 hrs.)

Following an early morning breakfast, we leave Khajuraho for Bandhavgarh. This is a long day drive and the road passes through Panna National Park. We plan to arrive at Bandhavgarh for an afternoon safari that starts at 3 p.m. Bandhavgarh National Park is a relatively new park, established in 1968, is set in the Vindhya hills of Madhya Pradesh and has an interesting variety of habitats. Caves in the park have Brahmi inscriptions dating from the first century B.C.

As we have three full days in this magnificent park, we should have time here for several game drives. We will travel in open jeeps in the morning and late afternoon. Chital (Spotted Deer) and Sambar Deer, Wild Boar, Peafowl and Langur Monkeys are everywhere. As we drive the many dusty roads, we’ll listen for the barking alarm call of the Sambar, indicating a tiger on the prowl. We will also watch for tiger pugmarks in the dust. If a tiger is spotted off the road, we’ll climb to the heights of a howdah, and travel off-road by elephant for a closer look at these magnificent cats. We’ll also sample many of the park’s species of birds: the Blue-bearded Bee-eater, White-bellied Drongos, Tickell’s Flycatcher and assorted Kingfishers. Green Pigeons and Plum-headed Parakeets can be found on many of the fruiting trees in the park.

Overnight Tiger Jungle Lodge.

Meals : Breakfast
Day 13~Day 15 Kanha NP

This morning we will drive to Kanha National Park, a park that has sometimes been called the Ngorongoro of India. It is a reasonable comparison except that Kanha is greener and its hills are more densely wooded. It is located in the eastern end of the Central Indian Himalayas and covers an area of 940 sq. km. This park was long the private hunting preserves of the British Viceroy and was declared a national park in 1955. Of particular interest during our stay will be mammal sightings. The magnificent Gaur, the strikingly beautiful Bluebull, the Barasingha or Swamp Deer and the ubiquitous Langur Monkeys are all here. Sloth Bear sightings are common and we’ll also hope to see tiger. In all, some 22 species of large mammals are regularly found within the park and the bird life is equally impressive. Marsh and Pied Harriers quarter the open grasslands flushing flocks of Bush Quail. Red Jungle Fowl are common in the mixed bamboo deciduous forests and Peafowl roam the area. Other birds that we hope to see, among the beautiful “flame of the forest” trees, are Indian Roller, Racket-tailed Drongo and Pied Malabar Hornbill. Here again, if tigers are spotted off the road in the jungle, we’ll mount elephants for a closer look.

Overnight Tuli Tiger Resort.

Meals : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 16~Drive to Nagpur/Flight to Mumbai

This morning we will have an early breakfast so as to get a good start for our drive to Nagpur. Our journey takes us through stands of hardwood forests known as “sal” that later give way to teak forests. The road itself, although paved, is narrow and winds its way through scenic, but sparsely populated hill country. We will arrive in Nagpur in the late afternoon in time for the evening flight to Mumbai (Bombay) and connect with your international flight or extend your trip in Mumbai or Goa.

Service ends.
