live like a maharaja

Sleep and eat in sheer, indulgent luxury; explore the psychedelic cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Udaipur; and watch wild tigers in the thick jungle of Pench. Our expert English-speaking guides will ensure you hop seamlessly from point to point. We love the ancient Devi Garh, a sumptuous bolthole with crisp modern interiors finished with traditional gold, marble, silk and masses of original artwork. Trust us, every bed you sleep in will be fit for a king.

reflected glory

ancient cities and archaeological wonders

In Delhi ride a traditional rickshaw through this ancient city to experience its pulsing energy and intriguing sights, sounds and aromas. Next, escape the hubbub of the city and voyage across the rugged Aravali Mountains in air-conditioned bliss to the lavish 17th century Samode Palace which comes into view like a mirage. From here you will explore the architectural delights of Jaipur city; to approach Amber, the ancient capital of the region you will swap your car for a more archaic mode of transport: an elephant. Talk about making an entrance.

luxury tiger safari

Even if you've been on a hundred safaris, nothing compares to the Pench Tiger Reserve. Set in 700 kilometres of teak forest, this is India's prime wildlife-spotting territory. Take morning and afternoon game drives, and retreat back to the brand new luxurious tented Banjaar Tola jungle safari lodge. The sensational multi-course meals, kind natured locals and impeccable service will leave you feeling thoroughly pampered.

You'll return home relaxed, bursting with stories and with a thousand photos to share. Just don't expect the royal treatment to continue back at the office…
