India _ Map

Discover an extraordinary country bursting with life, colour, flavours, religion, history and where ancient traditions are deeply-rooted in all aspects of daily life.  There is so much to explore and experience throughout India’s 29 states, all equally captivating with their own appeal, contrasting communities, landscapes and wildlife.

Where to start when faced with the sheer size of India?

Rajasthan

A must do and a great introduction to India is the classic Golden Triangle itinerary that incorporates Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.  Spend time exploring fascinating palaces, ancient forts, temples and mosques.  Whilst you’re in Rajasthan incorporate beautiful Jodhpur and regal Udaipur, with its iconic Lake Palace Hotel, which is so worth a visit if only for dinner – try and get a table on the terrace.

Stay in renovated palaces of the splendid Maharajas with unrivalled hospitality giving you a taste of the extraordinary wealth and privilege that these royals enjoyed.  The interiors of the palaces are a revelation with their intricate mosaics, pietra dura, precious stones and sumptuous fabrics.

Delve deeper into daily life and learn how the streets kids receive support through charities, take an exhilarating ride through chaotic city streets on a rickshaw, see at first-hand the generosity of the human spirit as volunteers at the Sikh temples feed the less fortunate through their community kitchens that open everyday of the year.

The countryside and smaller towns offers different, but equally wonderful experiences.  Go on peaceful bike rides, visit a small elephant sanctuary where they are beautifully cared for and join them on their daily walk through the forest.  Stay in an African-style safari camp and enjoy early morning and evening game-drives, on the lookout for leopards and learn how the Rebali shepherds live in harmony them.  Stop at Ranthambore National Park, the former royal hunting grounds, to spot tigers, crocodiles as well as rare bird species.READ MORE
