A real jungle adventure – Western & Oriental has introduced a new India itinerary, The Jungle Book Adventure, to celebrate the release of the latest movie adaption of Rudyard Kipling’s classic story.
Rudyard Kipling was born 150 years ago in Mumbai (then Bombay) and his most famous work was inspired by the wildlife of some of India’s famous national parks including Pench and Kanha.
Wildlife encounters in the Jungle Book Adventure begin at Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, which boasts the most visible number of tiger sightings in the State of Maharashtra.
Guests spend three nights at Tadoba with private game drives included to spot tigers as well as leopard, wild dogs, hyena, sloth bears, wild boar and other species.
Accommodation is at the recently opened Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge, the park’s first luxury hotel.
Three further nights are spent at Jamtara Wilderness Camp to explore Pench National Park, the real-life backdrop for The Jungle Book, on the trail of characters from Kipling’s tales.
Prices for the eight-day trip start from £2,499 per person based on two adults sharing, or from £9,599 per family based on two adults and two children travelling together.
These prices include flights to Nagpur via Doha with Qatar Airways, six nights accommodation on a full board basis plus the day use of a hotel room at either end of the journey, six exclusive game drives at Tadoba National Park and five exclusive game drives at Pench National Park, plus all transfers.
Prices are subject to change and availability and travellers should note that India’s national parks close from 1st July to 30th September every year. To book, contact Western & Oriental on 020 3588 6130 or see www.westernoriental.com for further details.
