Day 1 - Arrive Delhi

 On arrival at the Indira Gandhi International airport, you will be greeted by our company representative, with a placard bearing your name on it at the arrival lounge. He will assist you with your luggage and transfer you to the hotel in your private vehicle

Delhi, Capital City of independent India rewards the determined sightseer with more than a thousand monuments and two old capital buildings complexes-including the present seat of Government, designed by the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. Cosmopolitan hotels, shopping, and fine restaurants abound. Delhi also offers a glimpse into the real India: the labyrinthine street bazaars of Old Delhi, and the temples and monuments of India’s chequered colonial past. In the deepest sense, from Old Delhi’s Red fort and Jama Masjid mosque to New Delhi’s chic art galleries and nightclubs, Delhi is profoundly Indian city

Turbaned shepherds still lead goats and sheep through ravines in Delhi’s remaining open fields and near the airport. In Delhi’s golf courses Mughal monuments share fairways with peacocks. Rajasthani women in bright coloured saris and men in dhoti (skirt like wrap) work with outdated tools in construction sites while executive work out in computerised equipment in health clubs. By day, we will see temples packed with devout, and by night, hotel discos are packed with affluent.  Delhi is a city on a move and gate way to India

TOFTThe Hotels covered in this Itinerary are:
Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport
Kanha Earth Lodge

Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport

 Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport is 4 kms away from Indira Gandhi International Airport and 5 kms away from domestic airport. Also, the hotel is just a km away from Aerocity Metro Station which gives you an easy access to the corporate and commercial hubs of Delhi and Gurgaon. It also lies in close proximity to various entertainment and shopping destinations of the city


Kanha Earth Lodge

Kanha Earth Lodge lies in 16 acres of natural forest, tucked away in a small hamlet bordering Kanha’s buffer zone. Its unique location, 30 minutes from the Khatia/Kisli park gate, ensures that it is close enough for easy access to the park, but still far enough from the glut of hotels lining Kanha’s tourist hub to offer guests a true wilderness experience. Our guests benefit from our incredible location, outstanding hospitality, experienced team of naturalists, and commitment towards conservation and local communities. The 12 luxury bungalows with en suite bathrooms and open verandahs have been inspired by Gond tribal architecture and offer environmentally sensitive, low-impact accommodation through their design and use of local stone and waste wood, while the absence of neighbouring lodges or highways creates an ideal setting for nature walks, birding and cycling trips through the surrounding forest.
