India & Nepal: Save the Tiger

Trip Length 15 days

From $7,995

  • Travel to India and Nepal to see the magnificent and endangered Bengal tiger in India’s Bandhavgarh National Park and Nepal’s Bardia National Park
  • Learn from the real experts about the life, habitat, threats, and conservation efforts being made to protect the tiger
  • Experience safaris by open 4x4 vehicle, on an elephant, or on foot!
  • Make your contribution just by participating—MTS contributes $300 for every participant on the trip to The Fund for the Tiger, a non-profit public charity

Travel to the land of the enchanting, elusive, and sadly endangered Bengal tiger. While there are many threats to its survival—economic development, habitat loss, and lack of prey—the most immediate threat facing the tiger is poaching to satisfy the market for traditional Chinese medicinal products. To create awareness and to raise funds, please join us on this special mission to see for yourself what is at stake. Traveling into the heart of tiger habitat by elephant, open 4x4 vehicles, and on foot on this entirely unique adventure, you’ll search for tigers in India’s Bandhavgarh National Park and in Nepal’s Bardia National Park, learn from on-site experts about current threats to their survival, and explore what steps can be taken to save them. Make your contribution just by participating—and MTS will match your donation with $300 for every participant on the trip to The Fund for the Tiger, a non-profit public charity.

Brian Weirum ~ The Fund for the Tiger Founder & Guide

In 1994, I launched MTS's first Save the Tiger trip, at a time when the tiger conservation community was shocked to discover that tigers in India and Nepal were being slaughtered to satisfy a market thousands of miles away, fueled by a belief in the efficacy of tiger products in traditional Chinese medicine. That first trip was a resounding success, so in 1996 I established The Fund for the Tiger, a tax-exempt, non-profit public charity dedicated to making a difference in the fight to save the world's last remaining wild tigers. Since 1994, the trip has taken 192 people into the land of the tiger and generated over $300,000 towards tiger conservation. The Fund for the Tiger has also built upon its initial support from the trip and has so far contributed $922,000 to tiger conservation in South Asia.

Day 1: Welcome to New Delhi

Welcome to New Delhi, the bustling capital of India! An MTS representative will meet you at the customs area of the airport and transfer you to your nearby luxury hotel. Depending on your airline schedule, it can take two to three days to travel to Delhi. The date and time of arrival in Delhi varies greatly from carrier to carrier. Most flights arrive in Delhi either very late in the evening (between 10pm and 1am) or early in the morning (between 2am and 3am). We are holding reservations at the hotel in Delhi for the group starting the afternoon of Day 1. If you arrive early in the morning of Day 1, you will need hotel accommodation from previous night in order to check in immediately. This night is at your own expense, but we can make reservations for you at the same hotel.

After getting some well-needed rest, the day is yours to begin your exploration of the city. Delhi’s elaborate temples, mosques, forts and monuments are the stuff of legends. Let our representatives know if you’d like help making plans for the day. At 6pm sharp, the group will gather in the lobby to meet MTS guide Brian Weirum for a brief orientation. Following the meeting, we’ll enjoy a festive welcome dinner to kick off our adventures in India and Nepal.

Please note that this entire trip is below 6,000 feet.

  • Dinner
  • Accommodation:Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi

Day 2: Arrive at the elegant Tiger's Den resort in Tala

From the airport in New Delhi, we’ll catch an early morning flight to Jabalpur. Once we land, we’ll meet a driver who will take us to Bandhavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh, Central India—roughly a five hour drive. Along the route, we'll pass farmland and traditional villages, where local go about their daily tasks. We’ll end the day at Tiger's Den, an elegant resort made up of private guest cottages in the small town of Tala, which is adjacent to the park.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tiger's Den Resort

Days 3-5: Spot tigers in Bandhavgarh National Park

We'll spend the next three days looking for tigers in the park, learning about their lives, habitats, and the threats to their survival. Every day, we’ll rise early, enjoy a quick cup of coffee or tea, and head out with our guide in four-wheel-drive vehicles through dry, deciduous forests, rocky hillsides and vast open meadows in search of the Royal Bengal tiger. For safety reasons, we will not walk while tracking, as early morning is hunting time for tigers. After tracking at sunrise, we’ll return to the resort to freshen up and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. We’ll spend the hottest part of the day at the resort, where we are free to stroll through the plant nursery, relax in our cottages or swim in the outdoor pool. After lunch, we’ll head back out into the park to track wildlife until sundown, when we return to the resort for refreshments and a delicious dinner.

Created in 1968, Bandhavgarh is a 173-square-mile park in the vast central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. This beautiful preserve is dominated by Bandhavgarh Fort, a massive pla­teau rising 1,000 feet from the Indian plains and former home of the Maharajah of Rewa. Hindu legend tells of Lord Rama who, upon his return from the wars in Cey­lon, stamped out a flat place for his brother to settle (Bandhavgarh means “brother’s footstep”). The progentior of all white tigers, Mohan, came from the forests of Rewa, only a short distance from Bandhavgarh Na­tional Park.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tiger's Den Resort

Day 6: Enjoy a thrilling game drive and head to Khajuraho

Early this morning, we’ll head out on a game drive from the resort through a dry and rocky forest, in search of grey langurs, sambars, muntjac, wild boar, rhesus macaques, nilgai, chinkara, jackals, jungle cats and mongoose. There is also a possibility of spotting leopards, gaurs, sloth bears, hares and Indian foxes. After enjoying a full breakfast back at the resort, we’ll set out for a long drive to our comfortable, well-appointed hotel in Khajuraho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its elaborate Hindu and Jain temples from the 10th-century Chandela dynasty.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Lalit Temple View

Day 7: Visit the Khajuraho monuments and return to Delhi

In the morning, we’ll tour the famous temples of the Chandela dynasty at Khajuraho, built during the 10th century and symbolic of the era’s tolerance for religious differences. Only twenty of the original temples remain, primarily dedicated to gods in the Hindu and Jain traditions. We’ll enjoy a thorough visit of this incredible site, before boarding our afternoon flight back to Delhi. Once in Delhi, we’ll transfer back to our hotel and dine with Belinda Wright of the Wildlife Protection Society of India, a non-profit organization dedicated to monitoring illegal wildlife poaching and illegal trade. After spending time tracking the white and Royal Bengal tiger on the first part of our trip, Belinda will offer more insight into the many challenges contributing to their extinction.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi

Day 8: Fly to Kathmandu, the heart of Nepal

After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, we’ll have time to pack our bags and prepare for a scenic midday flight to Kathmandu, Nepal. Upon landing, we’ll transfer to the Yak & Yeti, one of the finest five-star hotels in the city. This 100-year-old palace is situated centrally and boasts beautiful gardens, fine woodcarvings and local textiles. We’ll settle into the hotel and gather later this evening for a cocktail party and tiger talk hosted by Brian, who will explain the tiger conservation efforts going on in Bardia National Park. Lunch today is on your own.

  • Breakfast/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Yak & Yeti Hotel

Day 9: Take a scenic flight to Bardia National Park

We’ll depart Kathmandu this morning for a short but scenic 45-minute flight to Nepalgunj, the gateway to some of Nepal’s best-preserved wilderness areas. Upon arrival, a driver will meet us and take us by Land Rover for a two-hour drive to the serene Karnali Lodge, a luxury eco-lodge on the edge of Bardia National Park, our home for the next four nights. The lodge offers a truly unique experience with its resident elephants roaming the grounds, an organic vegetable garden, and guest rooms with a soothing, minimalistic design. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a sumptuous dinner made from food from the garden and other locally sourced products.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge

Days 10-12: Explore Bardia National Park

Bardia National Park is Nepal's largest and best-preserved wilderness area. It is home to over 30 species of mammals and 250 species of birds, including a healthy and stable tiger population and Nepal’s one-horned rhinoceros. Bardia and its surrounding forests and jungle are at the very heart of tiger habitat in Nepal and a critical focus for the funds raised by this trip.

While at Bardia, we'll take early morning and late afternoon game drives in jeeps, or nature walks to places where rhinos or tigers are likely to appear. Viewing tigers can be unpredictable: a blur of black and gold bolting through the forest or coming across one staring out at you from the tall grass.

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge

Day 13: Return to Kathmandu

This morning, we’ll transfer to the airport in Nepalgunj for our flight back to Kathmandu. Upon arrival, we’ll return to our five-star hotel from our previous stay. After checking in, we’ll have some time to relax before Brian leads a late afternoon stroll through the vibrant, ancient streets of old Kathmandu, where we’ll see monasteries converted to homes, merchants and the bustling life of the city’s residents.

  • Breakfast
  • Accommodation:Yak & Yeti Hotel

Day 14: See the sights of Kathmandu

After breakfast, we’ll head out as a group to one of Kathmandu's most famous landmarks: the ancient Buddhist stupa at Boudhanath, the center of Tibetan Buddhist culture in Kathmandu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979 and the largest chorten in the world. The Buddha eyes depicted on its stupa make it one of the most recognizable religious monuments in the Buddhist world.

This afternoon is free to have lunch where you’d like and explore Kathmandu on your own. By western standards, the city is intimate. You can visit the many interesting sights, shrines, and markets, or stroll in Kathmandu's fascinating Asan Tole bazaar. Don't miss Durbar Square, Thamel, Swayambhunath (the “Monkey Temple,” overlooking the entire Valley; go at sunrise or sunset!) and the King's Palace. You could also hire a driver to take you to the nearby ancient city of Patan. Our farewell dinner this evening will be held at Krishnarpan Restaurant in the beautiful Dwarika’s Hotel.

  • Breakfast/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Yak & Yeti Hotel

Day 15: Fly home

After breakfast, we’ll transfer to the airport for our flights home. Most homeward-bound flights will require an overnight en route. Our trip officially ends in Kathmandu. Some passengers return home via gateway cities other than Delhi and/or extend their Asian adventure with quick trips to Tibet, India, Bhutan, or Southeast Asia.
