13 Days 12 Nights
Tour happens twice a year.
India is full of wonderful species waiting to be seen and appreciated, one amongst these and undoubtedly one of the cutest creatures of them all is the Red Panda. It is also the only “panda” species in the world. The Giant Panda is actually a bear. The eastern Himalayas is the only place where one can find the red pandas. This program here is a great combination of rare, along with the more easily seen wildlife in the Indian subcontinent.
Our program takes you to two states in India – West Bengal in eastern India to Singalila National Park and to Madhya Pradesh in Central India to Satpura Tiger Reserve. The regions differ vastly in the terrain, birdlife as well as mammalian life forms.
Singalila National Park is one of the most exotic Himalayan forests in India. It is a wilderness located on the Singalila Ridge at an altitude of 7000 feet to 12000 feet above sea level with an area of 78.6 square kilometers. This is a Birding Paradise as well. More than 300 species of birds have been recorded here. It has a huge list of exotic birds, like- Blood Pheasant, Satyr Tragopan, Kalij Pheasant, Brown and Fulvous Parrotbills, Rufous-vented Tit, and Old World babblers like the Fire-tailed Myzornis and the Golden-breasted Fulvetta, Rosefinchs, Bull Finches, Wren Babblers, Laughingthrushes, Nuthatchs, Tree creepers, Yuhinas, Minivets, Partridges and many more.
There are an estimated 32 Red Pandas within the limits of Singalila. Apart from the Red Panda, other mammals found here are- Himalayan Black bear, Clouded Leopard, Leopard, Leopard Cat, Himalayan Serow, Barking Deer, Yellow-throated Marten, Wild Boar, Pangolin, Pika and many other Eastern Himalayan exotics.
Satpura on the other hand is excellent for exploring the central Indian jungles in canoes, on foot and even allows one to do dusk drives. Known for a high density of sloth bears, leopards and bison, it also is home to interesting lesser known species such as the Indian Giant Squirrel, rusty spotted cat and the small Indian civet. Satpura is home to about 350 species including the much sought after Indian Skimmer.
