Trip for Big 5 of North East

Wildlife in India has been more known for because of popular national parks of North and Central India like- Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Pench, Ranthambore and Corbett. In between these parks one can see the Big Five of The Indian Wildlife from North and Central India, namely, The Asiatic Elephant, The Gaur, The Leopard, The Royal Bengal Tiger The Sloth Bear. We, however, decided to provide a unique experience to our clients with a pioneer trip to North East India to see the other aspect of Indian Wildlife with emphasis on seeing the Big Five of North East India.

Quite recently we concluded a very succesful trip to North East India visiting Kaziranga, Manas and Sunderbans, there of the most important National Parks each with its unique Flora and Fauna. All the group members had their first ever experience of coming to this part of India and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

The whole trip was planned with an idea to see the Big Five of North East India’s National Parks, The Asiatic Elephant, Great One Horned Rhinoceros, The Wild Buffalo, The Gaur, and last yet not the least The Royal Bengal Tiger. We were lucky enough to see 4 out of 5 but missed seeing a tiger. Anyway, something should be left for next time. The absence of tiger sighting was adequately compensated by the wonderful sightings everyone had of Golden Langurs, Capped Langurs, 2 species of Dolphins found in India – The Gangetic and the Irrawaddy, Couple of Salt Water Crocodiles (another first for many from the group), rare sightings of Indian Palm Civet both Male and a female, a fleeting glimpse of rare Bengal Florican, plus many other mammals and lots of birds including Great Hornbill and Wreathed Hornbill.

Through the enclosed images we want to share our experience with you and hope you will enjoying seeing these images.

Welcome to Indian Wildlife

On this planet, if any region exists in terms of unmatched variety of Flora and Fauna- It is India’.

No region can compete with India in terms of its culture, climate, vegetation and wildlife. With a civilization more than 5,000 years old, with every ethnic group known to mankind, with five seasons every year, with a festival every day, with incredible variety of terrain including beaches on its 7516.5 km coastline, with its 89 National Parks and 489 Wildlife Sanctuaries, 19 Ramsar Sites and 13 Biosphere Reserves, India is indeed a wonderland.

Few know about its diversity of its habitat and its wildlife as we do at Indian Nature Tours. The Lions, the tigers, three types of Leopards along with nine other species of cats make India a Tiger Country.

It also has the largest dear population (species) in the world and unlike Africa, India also has antelopes.

Some of the species found in India are "Indigenous and are found nowhere in the world" i.e. Sloth Bear, Blackbuck (Indian Antelope), Chausingha (Four horned antelope), and Nilgai (Blue Bull).

With over 1250 species of birds, India is also a paradise for bird lovers.

In addition to its birds & animals, India also boasts of over 20,000 species of insects, 2,000 species of butterfly, 142 species of frogs and over 700 species of fish.
