Project Description

Young Tiger Tiger Photo Safari

Best Tiger Photography Workshop in India

Tigers have been symbols of strength and ferocity for centuries, with little wonder they are magnificent animals. Join us on a 5-Star spectacular Tiger Safari in India’s famed Tiger Parks. We’ve been to all of the major “Tiger Parks” in India and have chosen the ones that we believe will be the most enjoyable and most productive. It was tough to eliminate Corbett National Park from this list. We decided to run a second workshop that can be done on its own as an extension for this Safari. On this Safari, we visit the two best National Parks for tiger sightings, Kanha and Bandhavgarh. On the second safari we visit Corbett, Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary and the Taj Mahal.

We are staying at the highest-rated lodges at each park. You can expect luxurious rooms and fine food. Unlike travel in Africa, there are not many airports which means we will have several long drives. Once again, we will be comfortable with our chauffeur-driven luxury vehicles.

My experience with India’s tiger safaris is that it is nothing like going on Safari in Africa. In Africa, it’s almost like a zoo with a considerable density of wildlife. Tigers are rare, and as such, we may not see them on every game drive, but once we do, you will understand why people are fascinated with the awe-inspiring Tiger. I saw tigers every day when I was last there.

If you enjoy big cat photography and have not yet gone for tigers, nows your chance! Join us in India, and you will purr over this cat-tastic photography workshop.

Check back later, it’s way too soon to tell you what to expect.

I’ve been very passively advising my clients to purchase travel insurance for a while, but lately it seems like there have been multiple people having travel issues. Some have lost their deposits and sometimes even the cost of the entire trip!

Based on my client’s experience, I cannot stress more strongly how crucial it is to purchase travel insurance. Like I said before, and here it comes again, there is never a way to predict what is going to happen when you are booking trips months and years into the future.

You can read more about my thoughts about the importance of travel insurance in this blog post.
