Tigers of India Photo Tour
India is the land of the Royal Bengal Tiger and the only place in the world to photograph these charismatic cats. What makes India a unique destination is the diversity in habitats - grasslands, dense saal forests, dry deciduous terrains to mangroves. The way a tiger adapts itself to this magnificent variance of habitats is simply amazing and photographing tigers in such magical backdrops is what makes tiger photography so special.
This Indian summer, Tusk Photo brings to you a meticulously designed tiger safari where we will be covering two tiger headlands in India - Corbett National Park and Ranthambore National Park. During this photo tour you will get to experience the changing landscapes of India. We head to the Himalayan foothills of Corbett National Park, which boasts some of the most dramatic Saal forest in the world with a scenic Himalayan river meandering through this grand forest. We then head off to the dry and deciduous terrain of Ranthambore, which has a rich historical appeal with wildlife surviving amidst ancient ruins, which have existed for centuries.
This immersive photo tour is not only meticulously planned to maximize your chances to photograph some of the world's last remaining wild Bengal tigers, but also a diversity of captivating jungle wildlife including Chital, Spotted Deer, sloth bear, leopard, sambar, jackal, langur monkeys and much more.
