Tigers of India A Photography Holiday Small Group Tour

When you are accompanied by a passionate and experienced naturalist and wildlife photographer you benefit from their encyclopedic knowledge, identifying what would otherwise remain unseen. Join wildlife photographer Steve Race on Indus Experience tour you will never forget.

This tour is limited to 8 places only. Bookings will be confirmed on first come first served basis.

The mountains, forests, lakes, deserts and savannas of India occupy one of the great wilderness areas of Asia. Our exclusive 12-day tiger tour will be led by award winning professional wildlife photographer Steve Race and is a wonderful opportunity to join a small group of like-minded people with the aim of creating an unforgettable experience.

We will spend our time in the beautiful Bandhavgarh National Park, which is rich in biodiversity. One of the biggest attractions of this national park is the tiger (panthera tigris) and its sightings. Bandhavgarh though smaller than other wildlife parks in India has one of the highest densities of tigers in the world. With the tiger at the apex of the food chain, this incredible National Park contains 37 species of mammals, more than 250 species of birds, about 70 species of butterflies and variety of reptiles.

We will be staying at the idyllic Kings Lodge, which is situated in between two forested hills of Bandhavgarh National Park in a large natural forested estate of 14 hectares in Rancha village. The lodge is in the heart of wild country and only ten minutes drive from the Tala gate of the National Park. This Luxury Hotel has 10 cottage rooms and 8 stilt cottage rooms with en-suite modern bathrooms spread across a natural forest offering great ambience and privacy.

Our small group will include only seven photographers attending 13 game drives using three jeeps. This will give maximum room for prime photographic spots and positions within the vehicle and to accommodate for baggage and camera equipment. Steve will spend an equal amount of time in each of the three vehicles, ensuring that every guest benefits from his extensive wildlife photography knowledge. He’ll be on hand to ensure that you’re getting the very best from your photographic experience. He’ll also be on hand in the evenings to answer any technical or compositional questions that you may have relating to your days adventures.
