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

11 days from £3,825 per person

Experience a taste of rural India with trips to remote villages and stays in smaller hotels with plenty of character.

This is 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 India’s most beautiful temple architecture in Khajuraho; essential destinations for any tailor-made tour to 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 three nights and at least five game drives in each park giving you ample chance to spot an abundance of wildlife, and 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 luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it could easily be extended with time on the beach in Goa or at one of our favourite hotels, Ahilya Fort just a flight and short drive away. The opportunities of creating your perfect tailor-made tour of India are endless!

Client Testimonials

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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
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 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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
