If you've always wanted to mingle with the tigers, Canadian travel writer, digital storyteller, and India travel specialist Mariellen Ward is leading a tiger tour to India in March 2018.
She will be leading a small group tour to some of India's top tiger reserves, including Kanha, Bandhavgarh, and Pench.
"Seeing a tiger in the wild is on many peoples' bucket lists. There are only about 3,000 wild tigers left in the world, and 70% of them are in India," says Ward. "March is the ideal time to see tigers in the wild in India as it's starting to get hot, and they come out of the jungle for the water holes."
The tiger tour is organized and sold by Pugdundee Safaris, India's leader in tiger safaris and luxury, sustainable lodges. Guests will stay in Pugdundee Safaris award-winning lodges, be guided by their talented naturalists, enjoy delicious local foods, and take part in some very special, customized experiences – such as walking safaris, a boat ride, village visits, hiking, and one overnight camp. At least 7 game drives, in Satpura, Bandhavgarh, Kanha, and Pench are guaranteed – which means the chances of seeing a tiger are excellent.
"To see a tiger, you need three things: a good naturalist, a good opportunity, and of course good luck. On this tour, you will get the two things that are within our control: good naturalists and a good opportunity," says Ward.
Mariellen Ward will accompany the trip, imparting her enthusiasm and knowledge of travel in India. She will also be available to teach travel writing and blogging.
Mariellen publishes the popular and award-winning travel site Breathedreamgo.com.
