The Temple and Tigers Tour Program: 5 Nights / 6 Days

This tour offers a combination of visiting fine temples including Khajuraho, a world heritage site & Orchha a heritage village. The tour continues to two popular Tiger parks-Panna & Bandhavgarh, the latter famous for one of the highest density of tigers in the world.

Orchha

The capital city of the mighty Bundelkhand Empire, Orchha is known for its elegant architecture and its unique sequential development of domes, brackets, pillars, arches and ledges, the famous landmark example like Jehangir Mahal, the Laxminarayan Temple. The beautiful River Betwa on whose banks the city of Orchha is founded is a picturesque site, with its monuments dotting the landscape on either side of the river.

Alipura

Alipura is the heart of Bundelkhand and forms an easy base to span out in all directions. This Princely state was founded in 1757 by the Parihar dynasty and still retains the old world charm.

Khajuraho

A World heritage site famous for temples built by the Chandela rulers around the 10th century. It has much more to offer than the erotic sculptures which have made it world famous. The famous Western group of temples is designated as the World Heritage Site and is enclosed within a beautifully laid out park. The Lakshmana and Vishwanath Temples to the front and The Kandriya Mahadev, Jagadami and Chitragupta Temples displays the best craftmanship of Khajuraho.

The Panna National Park is home to some of the best wildlife species in India and is one of the better Tiger Reserves in the country. The park is known worldwide for its wild cats, including tigers as well as deer and antelope. The landscape of this rocky and uneven terrain is covered by scrubby vegetation and grass.

Guest Comments

“Fantastic experience!”
We stayed in the Tree House Hideaway in April 2014 and had a fantastic experience! Sleeping in a Treehouse had been an old dream, and the Treehouse met all expectations and some more. The noises of the jungle was the best wake-up call ever before we went out to see the tigers. Our hosts took excellent care of us, and we truly enjoyed the fantastic food served. We were alone in the lodge and on our last night we had a candle-lit dinner only for us out in the bush, a memory which will stay with us forever!
