Think of the Jungle Book, and you’ll be thinking of a safari in India.
An Indian safari offers the chance to see rare animals that are now endangered and exist virtually nowhere else. The Royal Bengal Tiger is the animal everyone hopes to see, but in addition, India is home to leopards, bears (Baloo!), rhino, huge bison called gaur and the rare Asiatic lion.

How does an Indian safari differ from an African safari:
In some ways the experience is similar, and the animals are Asian versions of similar species same found in Africa. Of course India has the tiger, which is not found in Africa.

Indian safaris are modeled on African safaris. Accommodation is excellent, safaris are in local Indian made 4×4 vehicles with local trackers. In some reserves an elephant back safari is possible!

Leopards, leopards and more leopards characterize any safari to Sri Lanka. With some of the largest leopard concentrations in the world, a leopard safari is incredibly thrilling. Plentiful wild elephants round out a classic safari experience.
