Tiger Conservation India

With various India wildlife sanctuaries and 80 National Parks, there is so much to explore and discover. Wildlife tours in India can be varied based on what you are most interested in. With so many wildlife and safari packages and options, you can create the perfect holiday for you and your family.

Due to decades of tiger conservation India is considered the best place in the world to view tigers in the wild. There are many tiger preserves throughout the Indian subcontinent. One of the most popular for tiger safaris is the Sunderbans. Tours in this Eastern Indian national park offer excellent opportunities for viewing tigers.

The Sunderbans is made up of the world’s largest mangrove marsh. It is the largest tidal mangrove forest on the planet. Tigers can sometimes be seen swimming between islands within the marsh. There are believed to be more than 400 tigers within the park-the largest population anywhere in the world. 

Despite the large population of tigers and the fact that many people go there hoping to see the majestic Royal Bengals, the Sunderbans is not the best tiger safari India has to offer. Sunderbans tours are conducted by boat, making it difficult to get close to the reclusive cats unless they are found swimming.  Additionally, most Sunderbans tigers are nocturnal-to an even greater degree than tigers elsewhere. Those who do get to spot a tiger in the Sunderbans often consider the experience one of the highlights of their lives.

There’s no need to be concerned about missing the opportunity to view tigers by participating in Sunderbans tours, though. India Safaris couples our Sunderbans tours with a trip to the Kanha Tiger Preserve, widely considered to be the best place in the world for tiger conservation. India offers a variety of wildlife viewing experiences, and we will help pack as much as possible into your wildlife viewing holiday.
