Temples and Tigers

Panna, Bandhavgarh


The former hunting grounds of Central India’s maharajas are today amongst the finest tiger reserves in India. In the jungles of Bandhavgarh and Panna, life moves at a different pace. Spend active mornings spotting wild cats on safari, and languorous afternoons at luxurious lodges that blend into the forest. Venture outside the wilderness to the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site of Khajuraho. Centuries-old temples tell incredible stories of love, war, and drama through their carvings. We’ll let the walls do the talking.
