When to Go?
November into April
Wild tiger populations are on the rise and rhino poaching has decreased. The parks re-open immediately after the monsoons in November, and tigers, used to empty habitat for months, are at their most visible.
In April of this year, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) announced officially that wild tiger numbers were on the rise for the first time in over a century. WPA combines visits to Kanha (the best national park in India for tigers) and Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which includes 2,000 rhinos, wild elephants, tigers and more.
Wildlife tour expert Wild Planet Adventures (WPA) underscores that when you travel abroad to encounter Earth’s most exotic wild creatures is as important as the destination itself.
Josh Cohen, founder of WPA, offers his insights as to the when and why wildlife lovers should travel abroad to maximize opportunities for close encounters, particularly of the rare and elusive kind.
