In the Central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, February-March are warm months, with average temperatures ranging from highs of 91F to lows of 60F, sometimes dropping into the 40s at dawn. Because water sources are more scarce during this time, it can be easier to find the wildlife.
October-November, the last months of the post monsoon-autumn, it is slightly less hot, with temperature averaging highs of 82F and lows of 50F. The forest is generally more beautiful at this time, but the wildlife may be a bit harder to spot among the greenery.
In the early dawn, when we start our morning safari drives, it can often be quite cold (40-45F) and you will need a warm jacket, hat, and gloves for these early drives in an open jeep. By 11:00 am, it will warm up considerably, and by mid-day, it will be 80-90F, with high humidity. Again in the evening, it cools off and you will need a light jacket. Because of the varied temperatures each day, it is best to dress in layers.
A typical day begins with an early morning wake-up call (5:00-5:45 am), when tea and coffee are brought to our rooms. We head out by 4WD vehicle for a morning safari. We'll stop at a scenic spot for a picnic-style breakfast, and return to the lodge for lunch, with a second 4WD safari in the afternoon. Game walks are not allowed in any of the national parks except Satpura, where we have options for guided game walks.

With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.
Level 1 – Easiest
Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.
Level 3 – Moderate
Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.
Level 5 – Strenuous
Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.
