  • Asian elephants are distinguished from the African ones by their smaller size, smaller ears, more rounded back, and fourth toenail on each of their hind feet. They have thick, dry skin with a small amount of stiff hair, and are grey to brown in colour. Asian elephants are mainly found across India and Sri Lanka and towards the south and east as far as Sumatra. They live in a range of habitats from grasslands to wet forests. Asian Elephants have a varied vegetarian diet, and feed on grasses, bamboo, leaves, bark, shoots, creepers and palms. They also prefer seasonal variety sometimes such as fig leaves and fruits, wood apple and mango.
  • Home of Rhino in India Kaziranga National Park Lying along the mighty Brahmaputra river, the Kaziranaga National Park covers an area of about 430-sq-kms. Its swamps and grasslands with tall thickets of elephant grass and patches of ever green forest support the largest number of Rhino population in the whole of Indian subcontinent. Once reached to an alarming point due to hunting and poaching, this area came under wildlife conservation in 1926 and in 1940, Kaziranga was declared a sanctuary. Manas National Park Manas national park is another Rhino refuge and is noted for its population of the rare Golden Langur - found only this part of India. Other primates in Manas include the Capped Langur, Assamese Macaque, the slow Loris and the Hoolock Gibbon. Over 2, 840-sq-kms in area, Manas is a fascinating Tiger Reserve. The reserve is also home to the attractive Red Panda, but these are seen occasionally in the higher elevations. Manas is a very special biosphere, for it harbours twenty species of birds and animals that are highly endangered and listed in the IUCN Red Data Book. These include the Hispid Hare and the Pigmy Hog.
  • The cats used to range all over Europe , Gir is in on the west coast of India, above Mumbai.
  • March 2010 led by the renowned Dr Raghu Chundawat, a passionate wildlife biologist, who has spent 14 years researching on Snow Leopard in the region. More easily seen in India, because population is Buddist and don ’ t kill. Plus NGO saving habitat. Providing alternative living to save habitat. The only three documentaries ever done on Snow Leopards were filmed here. We actively support Snow Leopard Conservancy AND the villagers who live in the area. (most don ’ t)
  • Except for mother and cubs, tigers live and hunt alone. It does not mean they are not social. Scent marks & visual signpost like scratch marks allow tigers to track other tigers in the area. However they prefer to socialize from distance.
  • Tigers mate between Feb and May, just before the rains. Litter of 2 to 6 Cubs are born in 15 to 16 weeks in a den. Male tiger does not stay with the cubs but visits occasionally. Cubs start hunting with mother from six months on and stay with her till about two years. Tigers can live up to 20 years. Tigers prey primarily on wild boar and medium to large size deer and antelopes - cheetal, sambar, chinkara, black buck etc. At times they also prey on elephant or rhino calf, leopard, sloth bear, monkey etc.
  • is a species of deer native to India and Nepal. Its English name is Swamp deer. Most striking feature of a barasingha is its antlers , with 10-14 tines on a mature stag. The name is derived from this and means 12 tined or horned in Hindi. -- found in Kahna.
  • is a species of wild dog from southern Asia. It's an unusual canid, living in highly social packs. Though threatened with extinction, so far it has received very little attention. Unlike the wolf or African hunting dog, few people have even heard of it!
  • We actively support TOFT India WWF and SLC through our tours.
