Northern India - Birds & Tigers I 2015 in Delhi, India

Home to over 1.2 billion people and reflecting the world's richest cultural kaleidoscope, India is also justifiably famous for its rich avifauna and charismatic mammalian megafauna. Rockjumper'sNorthern India - Birds & Tigers birding and wildlife safari is doubtlessly one of the world's classic 'must-do' tours. We begin with astonishingly productive birdwatching on the outskirts of bustling Delhi, before relocating to Ranthambore where we seek unforgettable encounters with the majestic Bengal Tiger, as well as numerous dry woodland birds and mammals. Next we head to the world-famous waterbird sanctuary of Bharatpur, taking rickshaw rides around wetlands teeming with waterfowl, storks, cranes, raptors and migrant passerines. After marveling at the incomparable Taj Mahal we take in a boat trip on the Chambal River, one of the last strongholds of the Gangetic Dolphin, Gharial and Indian Skimmer. Moving northwards we head to the Himalayas to explore Corbett Tiger Reserve and the quaint hill stations of Nainital and Sattal, before returning once again to Delhi. Birding highlights include Sarus Crane, Koklass and Cheer Pheasant, Ibisbill and Wallcreeper.
