Most national parks offered in the India wildlife tour packages remain closed during the monsoon season of June to September. Hence, it is very important to select your travel dates accordingly. Best months for these India wildlife tour packages are from November to March, which happen to be the winter months in India. During the monsoon season months, the sanctuaries and wildlife parks in India are not open for game drives to the core forest areas and excess green cover makes it even more difficult to spot the animals in the forests.
The safaris for the India wildlife tour packages are conducted by the forest reserve offices in each destination, which are managed by the government officials. Some luxury hotels and resorts like the Oberois Vanya Vilas in Ranthambhore do offer luxury India wildlife tour packages for exclusive safarsi, but these are much higher priced than those offered by the forest departments. One may get surprised to know that the safaris for India wildlife tour packages often get booked three to four months in advance during the peak season. Hence, it is recommended to book the India wildlife tour packages, as early as one could.
Unlike the safaris in other countries, the India wildlife tour packages do not offer safaris 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.
Every destination has its own safari timings and closing schedules. Hence, it is recommended to consult an expert, who will not only help you selecting the best from various India wildlife tour packages available, but also will tailor-make them to suit your requirements.
