Enjoy the best of India with a private trip designed just for you

An immense nation of vivid contrasts

The seventh biggest country in the world and the second most populous, India can sometimes feel more like a continent than a country. From the snow-capped Himalayas in the far north to the lush backwaters of the south, this is a place where landscapes and cultures changes in the blink of an eye. India is at once chaotic and noisy, peaceful and calm and it is this diversity that makes it such a fascinating and compelling destination.

India is one of the world’s oldest civilisations, its culture shaped by thousands of years of history. It gave birth to some of the world’s most prominent religions and is a country where life is lived out in hundreds of local dialects. Its soil was home to several ruling dynasties, each of whom left their mark. Every corner of the country reveals a different reflection on the past, from great Mughal masterpieces such as the Taj Mahal to quaint colonial churches and grand palaces built during the reign of the British Raj.

With one of the world’s fasted growing economies, you’re now just as likely to come across skyscrapers and glitzy shopping malls as you are hilltop villages and tea plantations. Its cities are huge and sprawling and while they may feel hectic at times, Delhi and Mumbai are wonderful places to see how the old and new intertwine.

The northern state of Rajasthan is home to some of India’s most well-known and frequently visited cities. Its name means Land of Kings and its landscape is littered with magnificent forts and palaces. From the state capital of Jaipur and the Blue City of Jodhpur to the serene lakes of Udaipur and the dusty dunes of the Thar desert, it is one of the most culturally rich pockets of India. The north is also home the holy cities of Varanasi and Amritsar, and few who come here fail to be touched by their spirituality.

Worlds away from the hustle and bustle of northern India, the south is somewhere to catch your breath. Kerala, affectionately known as God’s Own Country, is a lush and verdant state, one of emerald green waterways and coconut groves, and home to the wonderully colonial town of Fort Cochin. While away your days on a houseboat, gliding along the network of canals and rivers, then discover laid-back beaches while listening to the rustle of palm trees and the sound of the ocean as it laps against the shore.

India also offers some of the world’s best hiking, with trails running through the rolling green hills around Munnar and the mighty peaks of the Himalayas. Grab your walking boots and prepare to be astounded as every step reveals an incredible new vista. And then there’s the wildlife. India is a real-life Jungle Book, home to tigers, leopards and elephants. Ranthambore and Bandhavgarh are home to some of the country’s highest tiger populations while the luxurious and remote JAWAI camp is the best place to catch a glimpse of the beautiful and elusive leopard.

There are few places on earth like India. A whirlwind of colours, sounds and smells, its energy is undeniably contagious and the best way to appreciate this rich and unique country is to throw yourself head first into its way of life.

When to go

The best time to visit is during the dry, cool season between October and March. National parks in central and northern India are open from October until the end of June with sightings better from February onwards when there is less foliage. The dry season is also ideal for those wanting to trek in the far north.

Two of my favourite memories are a very emotional moment when I first saw the Taj Mahal in India and watching the sun rise over Mount Merepi from the top of the Borobudur temple in Java, which was a truly magical moment.

Travel Designer

Over the past 10 years, I have reported from nearly 70 countries, including Greenland, Brazil, Namibia, South Africa, Kenya, Bhutan, Nepal, the Seychelles, Bali, Thailand, and elsewhere around South-East Asia.

My passion for Asia was first ignited when I spent a year teaching English in South Korea. I found both the culture fascinating and the food phenomenal.
