Did someone mention big cat photography? How about the chance to photograph the biggest cat in the world?

My “India ~ Tigers, Birds & More! Photo Tour ~ 2020” offers you not only 10-days & nights of adventure but the chance to photograph magnificent Bengal tigers in their natural habitat.

India is home to most of the tigers left in the wild and this photo tour brings you into the thick of their habitat.

India Holi and Tigers with Art Wolfe

This photography tour combines two wonderful aspects of India, the kaleidoscope of color that is the Holi festival and the magnificent and powerful tiger! The Holi Festival is a fantastic celebration that marks the arrival of spring and signifies the victory of good over evil. Riotous, vibrant color envelops India as revelers throw powdered dye with abandon, spraying water, and flooding the streets for raucous fun. Holi may be traditionally Hindu, but everyone is equal during this holiday.

Following the Holi Festival we will travel to Bandhavgarh National Park where a highlight will be the chance to photograph elusive tigers and leopards. In addition to the Bengal tiger, the park has a rich diversity of fauna and flora, including leopard, striped hyena, macaques, langur monkeys, sambar and chital deer, Indian wolves, Indian hare, monitor lizards and a great diversity avifauna.
