Bewilderingly beautiful, India’s overflow of colour and variety of wildlife, people and topography are truly diverse, and it is this juxtaposition of widely varied themes that makes India so compelling. It’s a country that is as unique as the stripes on a tiger!

Day 1: Arrival in New Delhi
Today is set aside as an arrival day in bustling New Delhi for ORYX’s Ultimate Big Cats of India photo tour.
Day 2: Transfer to New Delhi Airport, fly to Udaipur,drive to Jawai
This morning we will depart Delhi very early and fly to Udaipur. Upon arrival at Udaipur, we will road transfer to Jawai. Our India photo tour commences in the afternoon with a game drive accompanied by your tracker–guide in a customized 4x4.
Days 3 & 4: Sujan Jawai
At the heart of an untrammeled wilderness, where leopards roam wild and free, is SUJÁN’s JAWAI. The vibrant Rabari herdsmen who have shared this land with wildlife for centuries endorse the organic and continuing link between local culture and wildlife. This is a relationship that SUJÁN is deeply committed to nurturing in the face of rapid change, as a means of fulfilling our commitment to conservation, to cultures and wildlife.
Day 5: AM game drive, road transfer Udaipur, afternoon flight to New Delhi
This morning we will enjoy the picturesque sights of Jawai one last time before we road transfer back to Udaipur. Here we will board a flight back to New Delhi and stay for the night.
Day 6: Fly New Delhi to Jaipur, road transfer to Ranthambore National Park, PM game drive
This morning after breakfast we will fly to Jaipur and road transfer to Ranthambore and to our hotel at Sher Bagh for lunch. At a time to be confirmed, we will make our way into the park for our first photographic excursion on our tiger photography section of our India tour.
Days 7 to 10: Ranthambore National Park
We will use an open-top jeep to explore the park for Tigers, enjoying the area’s prolific wildlife as we go. The rangers will be on the lookout for tell-tale signs such as pugmarks or scat in the road, and will be ever alert for the alarm calls of Sambar, Spotted Deer andHanuman Langur. With luck, these will lead us to a Tiger padding along a dusty track or sprawled out in the dappled sunlight. In addition to Tigers and their favourite prey species, Indian Gazelle, Jungle Cat, Striped Hyena and if we are extremely fortunate, Leopard and Sloth Bear.
Day 11: AM game drive, road transfer to Jaipur and depart
After game drive and a short breakfast this morning we will depart Ranthambore, and road transfer back to Jaipur. Upon arriving in Jaipur, this ORYX tour sadly comes to an end as we bid you farewell.
