You’re never too far from nature in Central India. 

Trek in the wilderness and sail down the Narmada. On jeep safaris and quiet boat rides, you’ll explore the Satpura and Panna National Parks, both thriving reserve forests filled with large cats, stealthy snakes, and a plethora of bird life. We’ll take you deep into the countryside to experience the charm of village life, and then into bustling cities like Bhopal and Delhi, buzzing with busy markets and fine museums.
