Itinerary

14 Days / 13 Nights

This tour has been carefully designed to give you a taste of the exciting, endless possibilities and can be tailored to suit your exact preferences.

As soon as you arrive at New Delhi airport, your Bandhavgarh Kanha Pench and Satpura Safari tour sets in motion. Our travel representative welcomes you to the city and drives you comfortably to your hotel. He will also make sure that the check-in at the hotel goes hassle-free.

We have kept this evening free to be spent relaxing. Alternatively, you can also set out to explore the lovely city.

Delhi is the national capital and quite a developed metropolitan city. The city presents a striking contrast between the portrayal of the old world by the historical monuments such as Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Chandni Chowk etc. and that of the modern era through its downtown streets and malls. Amidst all this, the city certainly holds a special place not only in the hearts of its residents but the entire country.

This morning we leave the hotel and head towards the airport to catch a flight to Khajuraho which is an indispensable part of the Central India Safari Tour.

Khajuraho is one of the most prominent attractions and a not-to-be-missed spot for foreign tourists coming to India for a vacation. It is a conglomeration of around 85 Hindu and Jain temples belonging to the period of 1st and 2nd Century. Located mostly around water bodies, these temples are a great display of Nagara style of architecture and are known for their erotic sculptures. At present, only about 20 temples of this UNESCO World Heritage Site are intact.
