India has always been at the top of the world for its stellar national parks and game reserves. Nearly a quarter of our country is covered in lush, serene forests of varying landscapes. Be it the vast tropical deciduous jungles of Central India, the mystical sands of the Thar desert and her neighbors, the Aravalli ranges, the teeming evergreen Western Ghats. All these unique landscapes make for the ultimate experience for a luxury safari in India.
