Birding Tour India: The North - Tigers and Birds January/February 2020



India, with its fabulous scenery, incredible wildlife, fascinating culture, and wonderful monuments must truly be on any world-birder’s and traveler’s wish list! The tour will visit world famous national parks such as Ranthambhore, Keoladeo Ghana (formerly known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary), and Corbett National Parks, and spend time in the breathtaking scenery of the Himalayan foothills at Pangot and Sattal. A visit to this part of India would not be complete without taking in the majestic UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Fatehpur Sikri and the Taj Mahal, and we will visit both of these very impressive places to soak up the sights and sounds. India is well known for its amazing food, and we will sample a great deal of different, interesting, and tasty local dishes throughout the tour.

The tour gives the possibility of connecting with numerous exciting birds, such as Indian Skimmer, Indian Courser, Koklass and Cheer Pheasants, Painted Spurfowl, Bearded Vulture (Lammergeier), Collared Falconet, Sarus Crane, Ibisbill, Painted Sandgrouse, Tawny and Brown Fish Owls, Blue-bearded Bee-eater, Great Hornbill, Sirkeer Malkoha, Long-billed Thrush, Spotted, Slaty-backed, and Little Forktails, Golden Bush Robin, Himalayan Bluetail, Himalayan Rubythroat, Wallcreeper, Rufous-breasted and Altai Accentors, and White-capped Bunting. Furthermore, the tour offers the chance to search out one of the world’s most highly-sought but elusive big cats, the Bengal Tiger, with a supporting cast that could include Indian Leopard, Asian Elephant, Gharial, Mugger, and Indian Python.

You could combine this tour with our preceding Birding Tour India: The South – Western Ghats and Nilgiri Endemics 2020 (12th – 25th January 2020), and with our following tours: Birding Tour India: The Northwest – Lions and Desert Birding in Gujarat 2020 (13th – 26th February 2020), and our Birding Tour India: The Northeast – Birds and Mammals of Eaglenest, Nameri and Kaziranga 2020, which visits the mountains of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh (1st – 14th March 2020). We can also easily offer you extensions at each location if you’d like to extend your stay in this wonderful and vibrant country.

He was the best guide we ever had. He is knowledgeable, easy going, hard working, and has all the qualities that people expect from a guide. We really enjoyed birding with him. We would be happy to go birding with him any time and would highly recommend him as a guide to any of our friends. Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to have him as our guide.
