Who’s the king of the jungle?

With the live action remake of Disney classic The Jungle Book set to showcase India’s amazing natural beauty on the big screen this April, many movie-goers will soon be thinking ‘oobee doo, I wanna be like you’ and booking a trip to see to see some of this magnificent country’s stunning locations for themselves. To coincide with the film’s release on 15 April, bespoke holiday specialists Experience Travel Group have created the Wildlife and Adventure in Rudyard Kipling’s India tour, enabling travellers to see all of Mowgli’s mates up close.


An extraordinary journey across Madyha Pradesh’s national parks, this is wildlife exploration as it was when the parks were first discovered for tourism and makes it possible for visitors to experience them as Jungle Book author Rudyard Kipling would have done. Pench Tiger Reserve, which inspired Kipling to write his most famous novel, is a particular highlight, while Kanha and Satpura national parks offer wildlife enthusiasts a variety of scenery and potential animal sightings. 


There is far more included than just the ‘Bare necessities’. This 14-day itinerary cost from £3395 per person and includes all flights, accommodation, experiences, entrance fees, guides, transport and a number of meals. The tour, which includes time in Delhi, can be tailored to meet individual requirements. For example, Experience Travel Group recommends adding on a few days in Bhopal, a fascinating and historical city, often overlooked by visitors.
