As an option to favorite African safari destinations, India offers one of the best safari activities with an abundance of wildlife, some of which are unique in the national parks and reserves of the country.
The destination expert Sanjay chooses him top ten animals to see in Hindustan with advice, where and when they can be seen, as well as surprising funny facts!


Royal Bengal Tigers are the most considerable cat species in the world and the most numerous subspecies of today’s wild animal. These big cats can shoot animals over double the size and have potent paws and jaws that help them catch their prey.
Did you know: Every tiger in the world is unique; no two tigers have the same strips like an artificial fingerprint!
In contrast to other big cats, the tigers love the water and are often found in water holes and rivers. Sanjay’s top choice park to see a tiger in the wild in India is Kanha National Park, a true wilderness with rolling fields and winding streams that make it a picturesque place to enjoy tiger tracking.
Travel between March-spring for the best tiger sightings. This is the end of dryness, so tigers are more easily accessible, but the heat is high


First time in outside yard

Much shorter than Disney’s jungle book portrayed, Faultier usually wears 5 to 6 feet high. These fluffy, somewhat lanky bears are often solitary animals living in the jungle of the Indian subcontinent.
Did you know that sloth bears are mainly looking for termites and fruits at night?
Fauna is considered vulnerable by the IUCN. Their number has declined due to their captivating character due to the loss of habitat and human poaching. The best park in India to see Fault is Satpura National Park.
The best time to see faults in India is the end of the dry season, luckily at the same time as Tiger!


Similar to their African equivalents, Indian rhinoceroses have a thick gray skin and a large stature, but above all, this subspecies has only one horn earlier than two.
Did you know: Rhinos horns are made of keratin, the same protein as human hair and nails.
The habitat of the Indian rhinoceros is limited to a specific area of ​​India: the Indo-Gangetic plain, so sightings are likely if you know where to go. Drive to the Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary for the best sightings; It is the home of two-thirds of the world’s population of rhinoceroses.
Although their protection status is vulnerable, the numbers have dramatically increased in the past 100 years, from only 12 people in Kaziranga in 1,908 to today 1,855. This is a fantastic conservation success story!
One-horned rhino can be seen all year round in the Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary. Keep your optics peeled and the camera ready!


Asian leopards are very elusive, lonely creatures seen in the Indian National Park under rock faces. Leopards are stealthy hunters found mainly at dawn and dusk looking for prey such as deer and poultry.
Did you know: Indian leopards have bigger black rosettes than African leopards.
The populations are relatively high in India, between 12,000 and 14,000 leopards live in the wild. The best area for leopards in India is Jawai. In this area is even thought that leopards are the sacred friends of the local ancient temples!
October – March is the best time to visit Jawai to see Asian leopards


Snowpeaks are among the most intangible big cats in the world. They roam the jagged hills of the Himalayas and remain camouflaged in the snow with their light gray / white fur. With the help of experienced guides, you will trace the prey of the leopards, as well as evidence from the snow peas themselves, to track down these mysterious creatures.
Did you know: Schneeleoparden can dive up to 15 meters deep and use their long tails to compensate.
Snowpeople can be hunted in the Hemis National Park, a high mountain reserve in the Indian Ladakh region. Travel to Leh on our small group safari for the best chance to see snow peaks in the wild.
March-April is the best time to see snowboarding. This is when they come down from the high mountains in search of prey.


India Jackals, found in some parks in India, have furs ranging from golden buff to black / brown depending on the habitat. They are also found on the outskirts of towns and villages where they find food.
Did you know: Solitary jackals are known to form relationships with tigers, differing from their kill rests
The best parks to see jackals in India are Madhav National Park, Ranthambore National Park, and Chilka Wildlife Sanctuary.
Ranthambore is open from October to June and jackals can be seen year-round


These elegant dotted deer are found throughout the Indian subcontinent, and it is a delight to see them graze and tied through the national parks of India. Their name is thought to derive from the same root as the cheetah, the Sanskrit Citra, which means “bright” or “spotted.”
Did you know: The males’ antlers reach almost a meter in length!
Chital can be found in Kanha National Park. Keep an eye out for them during your tiger-tracking game drives.
Chital can be seen all year round, but the end of the dry season is when they interfere in the grassland, best suited for bright sightings (March-April).


There is an abundance of birds in India, one of our special favorites are the Indian roller, stunning little birds that are part of the colorful roller family. Their brownish chests are accentuated with blue and purple tipped wings that stand out against their habitats of forest and meadows.
Did you know: your name is derived from the acrobatic movements that they perform when flying.
Ranthambore and Corbett National Parks are the home of abundant bird species, so should be on every list of corners list when you travel to India. From waterfowls and woodpeckers to owls and birds of prey you will be surprised by the variety
Indian rolls are not migratory birds, so they can be seen all year round, but have seasonal movements. Even if Indian reels are not there, Ranthambore boasts over 580 bird species, so you will not be disappointed when you travel!


Asian elephants differ in their size from their African cousins, with a lighter weight and smaller ears as well as a bow in the back. Elephants must drink at least once a day, so water holes are the best choice to find elephants in India’s parks.
Did you know that elephants can feed up to 19 hours a day?
Probably the best park in India to see elephants in the wild is Corbett National Park. This is India’s oldest national park with five zones.
November to February is the best time to visit the Corbett National Park.


Asian lions are also narrower than African lions, with a slightly thicker, somewhat thicker coat. They are also much rarer than the African subspecies with just over 500 remaining; Asian lions are therefore regarded as endangered.
Did you know: The population of Asian lions is rising slowly, which is a good news!
The Sasan Gir National Park is the only place in the world where Asian lions can be found, making them a real privilege.
From March to May is the best time to see Asian lions in the Gir National Park. This time does not coincide with other wild animals in the park, but can be mixed with tiger tracing in other parts of India.
