India is an amazing country which is thronged with wild beauty. From the north to the south, one comes across various climatic zones that give breed to varied forests sprawled across as homes to wonderful wildlife. Thousands of visitors flock, in order to savour the beauty of these forests in many national parks and sanctuaries of India. These national parks are well protected for the preservation of wildlife. The huge areas of the national parks come under the complete domain of the animals living there, who are the real masters of the jungles. Walking Safari, where the national parks are explored by walking, is the most exhilarating wildlife experience with a lot of adventures and risks.
