Some luxury hotels and resorts like the OberoisVanya Vilas in Ranthambhore do offer private luxury wildlife safaris, which are much higher priced than those offered by the forest departments. One may get surprised to know that the wildlife safaris in India often get booked three to four months in advance during the peak season. Hence, it is recommended to book the wildlife safari tours in India, as early as one could. Unlike the safaris in other countries, the wildlife safari tours in India, are not available by helicopters but only jeeps and canters, and sometimes on elephants. While canters can seat more number of people, jeeps can seat around four to six passengers. These are open jeeps so one is advised to avoid bright colored clothing and wear subtle shades or pastel colors in shades of browns, grays or greens. Best months for these wildlife safari tours in India are from November to March, which happen to be the winter months in India. During the monsoon season months from June to September, the sanctuaries and wildlife parks in India are not open for game drives to the core forest areas, due to which we do not recommend traveling during these months for a great wildlife safari experience in India.
