Hop aboard your private jet and fly into some of India’s most thrilling and exotic national parks, homes to the fearsome Bengal tiger. These tigers number less than 2,000 in India, so spotting one is rare and breathtaking. You’ll start off in New Delhi, before jetting off to Ranthambhore, Kanha, and Bandhavgarh national parks for game drives, birdwatching, elephant treks, and more riveting adventures. Your inner explorer will thank you for this exciting 11-day journey through India’s richly biodiverse backyard.
Why fly by private jet?
Take traveling in style to a whole new level as your board your private jet and take off on this thrilling journey through India’s national parks. This is the ultimate way to travel - you’ll not have to worry about long wait times, redundant transfers, and annoying flight cancellations that come with commercial flying. India’s lush jungles are at your fingertips when you fly on your private Pilatus PC12, a stylish, comfortable, and safe option for your enchanting journey.
Arrive in India’s vibrant capital, New Delhi. You’ll be transferred to your luxury hotel - we recommend either the Imperial New Delhi or the Oberoi Gurgaon. After check-in, step out into New Delhi’s bustling streets for a full-day tour of the city. The tour will take you from Red Fort, which dates back to the 17th century, to Old Delhi’s principal mosque, Jama Masjid. Next, head to Chandni Chowk for some shopping - this is one of New Delhi’s longest-standing markets. This evening, rest your tired feet back in your luxury suite at your hotel.
Having absorbed much of New Delhi’s history yesterday, start your day off today with a peak into its present, by checking out its contemporary art galleries, followed by its modern, high-end shops. Step back into the past in the afternoon at Humayun’s Tomb, which holds the body of Mughal Emperor Humayun. Thereafter, head to Qutb Minar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the tallest minar in India.
Start your day with a game drive through Ranthambhore’s national park. You’ll be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, who will point out not only the animals grazing in the forest, but also the area’s unique flora and fauna. The afternoon will allow time for more exploring of the lush jungle - try out some birdwatching if you like. Finally, finish off your action-packed day by exploring Ranthambhore’s Old City in the back of an open-top jeep.
Fly in to Kanha National Park today, and check in to your luxurious tented suite at the Taj Banjaar Tola. Kanha National Park is yet another home of the famous Bengal tiger, as well as leopards, sloth bears, Barasingha, and Indian wild dogs. Explore the jungle on two outings today: a morning bird safari, and an afternoon game drive, and see what exciting jungle life you can spot.
Kanha is probably best-known for being the setting for Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. Channel your inner Mowgli today as you head back out into the untamed jungle on a morning game drive. Take a break at noon for lunch and perhaps a dip in the pool, before embarking on another riveting game drive before sunset. Relax at your hotel this evening.
After a delicious, filling breakfast in your tented suite, you’ll start your day off with a morning elephant safari. On the safari, you’ll have the chance to mount one of the majestic beasts, and also observe them bathing in a water pond. In the afternoon, you’ll take one final game drive. Finish off your day with a tantalizing meal back at the hotel.
Today, your luxury private jet will land in Bandhavgarh, one of India’s most popular national parks. Check in to the exquisite Taj Mahua Kothi, and rest up for the coming days ahead. Bandhavgarh holds some of India’s most dense tiger populations, so if you haven’t caught sight of one yet, you are likely to be lucky here.
Explore Bandhavgarh National Park today with game drives, and elephant treks. In addition to tigers, there are barking deer, sambar, nilgai, Indian wolves, hyenas, and Indian bison, along with hundreds of bird and butterfly species - the biodiversity is incredible.
Check out some of Bandhavgarh’s non-wildlife sites today: Bandhavgarh Fort, dating back nearly two millennia, Baghel Museum, which holds the one-time possessions of King of Rewa, and Climber’s Point, which provides an incredible view of the park. If you’re up for it, head out on one final game drive this evening, ahead of tomorrow’s departure.
Board your private jet once again for the final leg of your journey - your return to New Delhi, in time for your onward journey. You will be assisted with your luggage as your check in for your next onward flight - either home, or to your next exciting destination.
