About Golden Triangle & Indian Wildlife Tour
The Golden Triangle of India is by far the most visited and most sought-after tourist destination in the country. This is true simply because of the sheer beauty that the three major cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur have to offer.
On their own, each of these three cities offers an old-world charm with their unique constructed architecture and breathtaking vistas, but when you combine the urban brilliance with the biodiversity hubs and national reserves located at a stone’s throw away from these cities, the tour gets even more exciting.
Along your way across the triangle, you’ll make stops at five of the most highly regarded national parks in India – Corbett, Bandhavgarh, Pench, Kanha, and Ranthambore. Each park offers something unique, be it in terms of the flora and fauna or in the numerous adventure activities you could take part in. Of course, one activity that is simply unmissable is the tiger safari. Hop into a jeep to witness nature’s wonders up close and personal.
Day 1: Arrival in New Delhi
Upon arrival at the New Delhi Airport, you will be met by our representative who will ensure a smooth transfer to the Hotel and further, help you check-in at the Hotel. All the travel related documents will be handed over and explained to you.
Later in the day, you will be taken for a half-day tour of New Delhi. Take in the breathtaking view of the Qutub Minar. An ancient stone minaret, dating back to several centuries, today stands as the tallest stone tower in India. Later, continue to India Gate- a war memorial arch, post which you can pass by the stately President’s House, Parliament House, Government Secretarial buildings and Connaught Place; the heart of New Delhi and a busy commercial center.
Day 2: Drive To Corbett National Park (170 Miles)
Day 3 & 4: Corbett National Park
Jim Corbett, a British hunter, tracker, conservationist author and a naturalist. He was often called by the Government to kill the man-eating Tigers in the United Provinces. It was during these sojourns that he transformed. His books are a must-read for any nature lover. Just the simple transformation from “shooting a Tiger with the rifle” to “shooting a Tiger with a camera” has been so beautifully explained. His journey as a conservationist and why he chose wildlife conservation over wildlife hunting is extremely inspiring. To honor his well-doing, the Government of India renamed The Ramganga National Park to Corbett National Park.
Corbett, like all other National Parks in the country, has different zones and gates. Each one is more beautiful than the other. However, the most cinematic of them all (and call us biased if you wish), is the Dhikala zone. There are a few forest rest houses, quite simply curated with the most basic amenities in this zone. The location is breathtaking beyond imagination (and no, we aren’t exaggerating). Imagine sleeping amidst the thick forests and waking up to fresh Tiger pug marks outside your cottage. The thrill is unparalleled. However, apart from Dhikala, the Gairal, Malani, Sultan, Khinanauli and Sarpaduli zones are equally beautiful and picturesque. All of them have a unique charm and are awe-inspiring. While the Ramganga River adds beauty to the landscape, the Shivaliks add grandeur to the zones.
Jim Corbett National Park is a part of the Terai Arc Landscape. The Tigers of Terai are known to be shy and usually leave the track pretty soon on being noticed. But in the last few years, the trend seems to be changing. Tigers are becoming more accustomed and have started to show up often. Every spot in Corbett, every track, and every backdrop is photogenic. And if you get your preferred mammal on the track, be it the Tiger, or the Elephant, the happiness is immense.
It is not only the mammals that make this park a must-visit but close to 535 species of birds make Corbett a real special park.
Take the early morning and evening safaris on both the days. Meals and overnight at the Lodge.
Day 5: Corbett National Park – Agra (192 miles/6 hour drive)
Day 6 : Agra
Day 7 & 8: Ranthambore National Park
On both dates, take the morning and evening safaris to the Park.
The entire park is divided into 10 different zones, with good Tiger and wildlife populations in almost all zones. Ranthambore was amongst the first National Parks where Project Tiger was started. It has witnessed a varying Tiger population for the last century, however, the past decade has been a steady ride for Ranthambore. So much so that it was able to donate a few Tigers to Sariska National Park, which was bereft of Tigers due to poaching activities.
The entire credit behind Ranthambore’s success and a thriving Tiger population goes to the dedicated Forest Department, and tourism. Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in the Indian State of Rajasthan comprises distinct areas with varied conservation history and virtually separated geographically, with mere narrow corridors linking them to the core, Ranthambore National Park. These are mainly Ranthambore national Park, Keladevi Sanctuary and Sawai Mansingh Sanctuary.
Ranthambore is a photographer’s paradise and a great attraction on the India golden triangle tour & tiger safari. With different kinds of lighting, angles, backdrop and any frame that you want, Ranthambore is picturesque in its own special way. The Park is also rich in avifauna, with around 300 species of birds. In fact for a keen bird watcher, Ranthambore and the surrounding area is a paradise. Some key species include: Large Cormorant, Painted Spurfowl, Sarus Crane, bronzed winged Jacana, Sandpiper, Kingfisher, Nightjar, painted Sandgrouse, Great Horned Owl and many more regular winter migrants which come from their nesting ground north of the Himalayas to Ranthambore and surrounding areas.
With an area of 400 sq. km, Ranthambore encompasses rocky hill crests which descend to open valleys between the Aravali and Vindhya ranges, dotted with water pools and fruit trees, this park gets its name from the thousand-year-old fortress, which looms above the forest. Well known for the diurnal activity of Tigers, Ranthambore is a very special and unusual area where a natural present meets a historical past. Sambar, Cheetal, Chinkara, Nilgai and Languor. The elusive Leopard and Tigers are found in this reserve with tourists standing a very good chance of seeing tigers during the safaris. Dotted across the landscape are the crumbling ruins of its past glory, be it chatris or cupolas, like palaces or old guard posts, all of which reinforce the magical and ethereal quality of this great wilderness.
