If you want to move away from the regular tourist trail, then take your torch and hit the spotlight on the quiet heart of India - Madhya Pradesh.
Sprinkled with artistic temple complexes, forts and stupas this state is an architectural wonder. Tigers make headlines here too. Step into the wilderness of some of the most celebrated Tiger reserves and view the royal animal in its many moods.
Join us on a uncharted journey to take a dip into the vivid culture and grandeur of Madhya Pradesh!
Welcome to the Maximum City - Mumbai. A city full of dreamers, Mumbai is the financial capital of India, a cultural riot and home to the famous Indian film industry - Bollywood.
Check-in at the hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
Mumbai is not a city; it is an emotion. Once a city of seven islands, it boasts of some spectacular colonial architecture, lip smacking street food, bustling markets and locals who give the city its energetic vibe.

After breakfast spend the first half of the day knowing more about Mumbai. You can pick an offbeat trail around the city or a Bollywood dance workshop to leave the city with a bang.

We move to the stunning Satpura National Park. A wildlife enthusiast’s paradise, it is truly central India's best kept secret. Located in the Hoshangabad district, this park offers visitors a chance to explore the ravines and dense forests without the maddening crowd.
Apart from jeep, elephant and boat Safaris, Satpura is the only park of its kind in Central India that offers walking safaris, giving enthusiasts a ‘one of a kind’ opportunity to explore a tiger reserve on foot.
Enjoy an early morning jeep safari inside the serene park.
Be back for lunch. Post some rest, you can enjoy an evening boat ride on the tranquil river.
After experiencing the forest of Satpura, it is time to get onto the next wildlife adventure at the Kanha National Park.

Legendary for its wilderness, tiger sightings and birding, Kanha has the distinction of harbouring the last of the highly endangered Hard Ground Barasingha, a major conservation milestone.
Today, we leave for an early morning jeep safari. The vast size of the park makes extended explorations possible and Kanha is a favourite with photographers for its sheer quality of wildlife viewing.
Return to the resort for breakfast. Some free time for relaxation. After Lunch, again we shall leave for a jungle safari.
