Taj, Temples and Tigers of North India – The Perfect Family Holiday to India

12 days from £3,825 per person

An exhilarating tour for keen wildlife spotters covering two of India’s most renowned national parks: Bandhavgarh and Kanha. But before the wildlife gets started we’ll take you to see the Taj Mahal and some of Indian’s most beautiful temple architecture in Khajuraho; essential destinations for any jaunt in India. Both national parks have their own unique character with the natural rock fortress at the heart of Bandhavgarh and Kanha's rolling landscape. The tour allows time for at least five game drives in each park, so different areas of each can be explored. Whilst this is no guarantee that a tiger will be sighted, we’d be surprised if you didn’t spot one!

There will also be time to visit the surrounding villages allowing an insight into rural life in India and the complexities of humans and tigers living side by side. The hotels in the parks are small, have plenty of character and blend well into the natural surroundings whilst still offering a good level of service. This tour could easily be extended with time on the beach in Goa or at one of our favourite hotels, Ahilya just a flight and short drive away.

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your perfect tailor-made tour of India. If you would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Family Holidays, as well as our favourite Active and Wildlife itineraries.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
