Spotting Tigers in India

India - a Safari Destination

Within a kaleidoscope of colour lies some of India’s most extraordinary landscapes from the scorching deserts of Rajasthan to the cold, rugged mountains of the Himalayas, the steamy forests of the Western jungle to the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Each is a veritable hotbed of nature’s biodiversity to rival anything that its better-known safari destination of Africa can offer. Forget Africa’s ‘Big Five’ of elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo of safari fame - with India you have the ‘Big Eight’ adding wolves, bear and the majestic tiger to your safari tick list. With as few as 3,200 tigers existing in the wild today, India remains the best place to spot these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat, home to over half of the world's population.

India’s wild places face seemingly unstoppable pressures from rampant poaching, deforestation and overgrazing, and the irreversible tide of humanity that bring rapacious development in its wake. A 2014 Government tiger census estimates that a total of only 2,226 individuals remain in India's shrinking jungles, up over 30% in a decade, which is very encouraging but this is just 2% of what used to exist 100 years ago. Yet today, remarkably, 39,000 square kilometres of wilderness is protected across 500 parks and sanctuaries, harbouring all of India’s fantastical flora and fauna and amazingly, with the squash of 1.3 billion people, yet more lands are being added each year.
