Taj Safaris has announced The Wildlife Escape Offer—an Indian jungle safari experiences. Guests can enjoy stargazing excursions, survival training programs and jungle drives conducted in an open 4x4 safari vehicle, direct from Taj’s safari lodges.
The company’s luxury safari lodges in the jungles of Central India—Baghvan in Pench National Park, Mahua Kothi in Bandhavgarh National Park, Pashan Garh in Panna National Park and Banjaar Tola in Kanha National Park—will reopen for a new season on October 1, 2018.
With Taj Safaris, the day begins just after sunrise, with early morning jungle drives in specially designed 4x4 jeeps with Taj Safaris’ resident naturalist to spot the wide variety of wildlife, including the famous Bengal tiger.
Children can try their hand at The Young Naturalist Program, available at all lodges, to brush up on their jungle survival skills. They will learn to make fire, rope knots and use an old water compass to find their way and more. Once guests get hungry, they can head back to the lodge to indulge in local flavors, including Rudyard Kipling-inspired Burra Sahib High Tea and a Man Cub Village Menu for lunch.
As the sun sets, guests can head out on a night walk with the in-house naturalist into the jungles to gaze up at the North Star, Milky Way and the constellations. Later in the night, listen out for various animal night calls by the campfire and end the day with treats delivered through the in-room “butler hatch,” including hot chocolate, chai cookies and kulfi.
