INDIA & SRI LANKA

REGAL INDIA Marvel at the ornate palaces and majestic forts of Rajasthan, including Jodhpur’s magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, Jaipur’s majestic Amber Fort and the ubiquitous temples of Udaipur, set beside the tranquil waters of stunning Lake Pichola. And of course, not to be missed, the enchanting Taj Mahal in Agra. SPICELANDS OF THE SOUTH Oriental influences infuse the southern spice-trading coastline; visit plantations to savour the pungent spices of cardamom, cinnamon and pepper, or cruise the Kerala backwaters.

ON THE TRAIL OF THE TIGER Follow the tracks of the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger in the Sundarbans, part of the world’s largest delta, in Ranthambore National Park - once the private tiger reserve of the Maharaja of Jaipur, or in Kanha National Park, inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Jungle Book’. SRI LANKA – ISLE OF CONTRASTS Encompassing cultural delights in Kandy, wildlife encounters with the leopards of Yala and the elephants of Udawalawe National Park, and luxurious tea planter’s homesteads, this lush green island is fringed by stretches of golden sands, ideal for a relaxing beach add-on.
