Historic Delhi, India's capital city

At Bandhavgarh, we visit one of India's finest game reserves, home to elusive tigers. At Deogarh we stay in a delightful royal mansion in a village.
The hotels are all top of the range and are among the best available in each place. Accommodation in Bandhavgarh is comfortable but simple, in keeping with its surroundings.
Road travel is by coach or car with air-conditioning where required. Two short internal flights and two daytime train journeys add diversity to the internal travel. International flights are on direct non-stop services of British Airways from Heathrow, flying time to Delhi is around 9 hours.
