2023 Jungles And Wetlands Of India-Birding & Photography

  • India

India is one of the top countries in the world for birding and wildlife photography. It really is teeming with wildlife wherever you go. From Wild Boars wandering through the centre of towns to the amazing jungles full of birds and Tigers! On this tour we will visit two nature reserves we are familiar with from previous trips led by YCN Directors Steve Race and Richard Baines. This tour is one of our special partnership projects with international travel company Indus Experinces

Our tours starts at Keoladeo National Park on the edge of Bharatpur which is one of the most important wetlands in the world for birds. We will then travel to Ranthambore National Park one of the top tiger sites in the world. This is going to be a great wildlife combo! 

Keoladeo National Park in Bharatpur is one of the best places in the world to get close to a fantastic array of wetland species. A birders and photographers dream if you love water birds and raptors. Late winter is a great time for birds such as Painted Stork, Asian Open-billed Stork, Sarus Crane, Black Bittern, Cinamon Bittern and many more. Birds of prey include; Indian Spotted Eagle, Greater Spotted Eagle, Bonelli’s Eagle and Booted Eagles. On our March 2017 trip we were treat to great views of a nesting pair of huge Dusky eagle Owls! 

Staying in Bharatpur provides a great opportunity to explore a diverse range of places such as Chambal River. Here birds such as River Tern and Indian Skimmer mingle with Gharial, a fantastic fish-eating crocodile and Gangetic Dolphin

The world famous Ranthambore National Park is a wonderful destination for wildlife. Tigers will be one of our priority species using local expert guides to seek out the best views and photography possible.

This is a small group tour with only 10 places
