India has a lot of amazing natural beauty all across the country, the coast, the mountains, the forests and so much wildlife and flora to enjoy there too. Some or unique to India and cannot be found anywhere else. A great way to enjoy such things is to visit one or more of the many nature reserves, parks or finding a bird sanctuary near me. Whether you live in India and want to investigate what there is around you or want to travel to the country, you have a lot of options. Wild tigers in places like Sunderbans, Corbett, Pench, Ranthambore and Kanha, elephants at Periyar, Corbett or Kanha, and hundreds of birds at various places including migratory and native birds. There is a lot to experience and it is a great way to remember the things that are important. Here is a closer look at the birds, tigers and elephants.
With an elephant safari, you can explore other areas of a sanctuary, find your favourite bird of India, spot an Asiatic lion, or just enjoy the scenery all from the back of an elephant. There are a number of advantages to this option and a number of things to enjoy. You get to interact with these wonderful creatures, and experience life as they do, walking steadily along a trail dedicated to such things. You also get to experience the wildlife in a different way, a jeep is great but it is noisy and it detracts from just being a part of nature. On an elephant, you can pretend things are different, that you are in a different time even. There are a few places that offer safari tours this way, Corbett in Uttranchal, Kaziranga in Assam, Bandhavgarh and Kanha in Madhya Pradesh are just a few.
Bird of India watching tours
What would a wildlife tour of India be without visiting a bird sanctuary near me and seeing how many of the hundreds of bird species you can see? Or perhaps you have a favourite bird and you want to take pictures and learn more about it. India is a perfect place to visit for all kinds of migratory and native birds. There are also several rare species to try and spot. There are many sanctuaries to visit, and you do not have to just head to one specially designated as for birds either. Some that stand out include Ranganathittu in Karnataka, Porbandar in Gujarat, Bharatpur in Rajasthan, Chilka Lake in Orissa and Kumarakom in Kerela.
Majestic tiger tours
Tigers in the wild are becoming harder to find, especially the breathtaking Bengali tiger. You can visit several parks and sanctuaries where there are a number of tigers in the wild and help with their conservation. Most tiger tours are done by jeep and some of the places you might try are Corbett in Uttranchal, Kanha and Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh and Ranthambore in Rajasthan. Sometimes elusive you can still enjoy other sightings and wildlife while you hope for a tiger spotting.
