THE INDIA SAFARI CLUB CENTRAL INDIA SAFARI EXPERIENCE
f you are looking for the “TRUE BLUE TIGER SAFARI”
experience then this tour is one for the books - the real "Mc
Coy of Safaris" – the way it was done in bygone days
of the Maharajas but these days hunting with cameras rather than
guns! This safari excites me the most - moving from jungle to jungle,
setting up our own mobile/fly camps on the ‘Trail of the Tiger’.
On this safari you will experience the thrill of traveling with
your very own safari staff for a full week through central India.
Being able to drive in a 4 wheel SUV into the jungles of central
India at night after a day’s tiger spotting and then relaxing
by the camp fire enjoying a single malt is an amazing adventure...........
AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFE TIME.
The maximum guests for this tour are 8 and must be conversant in
the English language. It is important that they all be known to
each other (friends/relatives).
