I love a good tiger safari. Who doesn’t?

Now, one of the world’s leaders in sustainable nature travel, Natural Habitat Adventures is introducing a  new 7-day tiger-intensive expedition, India Tiger Quest, offering the rare opportunity to see Bengal tigers in their natural habitat along with other remarkable wildlife of India.

Natural Habitat Adventures has been a leader in responsible adventure travel and ecotourism since 1985. From polar bear tours in Churchill to small-group Galapagos cruises, from Alaska grizzly bear adventures to African safaris, their journeys, led by professional naturalist guides, reveal the planet’s most extraordinary nature destinations.

With this tiger safari, you can visit one of India’s premier places to see some of the world’s last remaining wild Bengal tigers: Ranthambore National Park.

After years of plummeting tiger numbers, India charted a 30% rise in its quadrennial tiger census in 2014, compared to 2010. Conservation groups attribute some of that growth to sustainable ecotourism. The economic impact of visitors to India’s tiger reserves benefits the communities in proximity, providing jobs and offering local people an incentive to protect the wildlife with which they share the land. Given that India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining wild tigers, and India is the only country currently seeing a rise in tiger numbers, the presence of wildlife tourism here is integral to that continued conservation success.

Led by India’s top naturalist guides, travel at the optimal time of year for sightings, when temperatures are getting hot but monsoon rains are still weeks away, drawing wildlife into the open to drink at shrinking waterholes. Search for tigers on morning and afternoon drives through the deciduous jungle, keeping a lookout for other jungle wildlife, too: sloth bear, leopard, sambar, chital, palm civet, langur monkeys, pythons and more. With 11 guests total–and just four per safari vehicle–everyone gets a “window” seat in open-sided 4x4s.

The per-person double rates start at $6,795 ($1,275 single supplement). Included are all activities, accommodations, train from Ranthambore to Delhi, airport transfers, most meals, guiding by professional naturalist Expedition Leaders, most gratuities, all permits, taxes and service charges.

Departures are offered throughout 2019 and 2020.

How Locals Vacation in New Zealand

You often hear about New Zealand’s incredible, stunning luxury lodges around Hawke’s Bay and Queenstown, but Kiwis themselves have always been drawn to out-of-the-way places. They want to be at the far corners of the country, where big waves roll just off the front porch, long-legged seabirds scavenge in the sand for insects, and the only sounds are cicadas chirping. The iconic New Zealand “bach” (vacation home) personifies the Kiwi character: unpretentious, individual and creative. It is also a place to find solace and silence. There are extensive listings of Kiwi beaches for rent throughout the country, of course, but we found out about these three awesome places where you can stay to have a real Kiwi baech experience.

Onemana Bach - lo res

Onemana Bach

Coromandel: Paradise Found at Onemana

Internationally renowned New Zealand music producer Chris Parry (The Cure, The Jam) has slept in some of the world’s most luxurious penthouse suites, however, when he thinks of paradise, his beach on the Coromandel Peninsula is what comes to mind. Accessed only by a forestry road, his beach at Onemana, north of popular Whangamata Beach, is the polar opposite of his jet set music life. It is remote, slow moving and soul restoring – and you too can rent it!

Woodpecker Bay lo res

Woodpecker Bay

Woodpecker Bay: Built on the Rocks

When big waves pound the South Island’s West Coast at Woodpecker Bay, guests at this mid-century era bach have a seaside seat. Owner Daniel Beetham says guests love the bach’s wild location and the sense of peace they get when they walk through the door. Lovingly furnished with New Zealand art and items bought from secondhand shops, there is an old claw bath and a wood-burning stove. Guests at Woodpecker Bay Bach – Life on the Edge (15 minutes north of Punakaiki) can sit and watch the rough sea batter the rocks just outside the window or – for those who want to get their feet wet – there is a great swimming hole at Fox River, 2.5 miles to the south. As for the name, “Woodpecker Bay,” well it is a Kiwi mystery… New Zealand has no woodpeckers!

www.bookabach.co.nz/23594

Stewart Island: A Bird Lover’s Paradise

Located only 39 steps from the bach to the beach, guests at Skip’s Place are woken by a deafening dawn chorus as bellbirds, grey warblers and kakariki warming up their vocal chords. Owner Holger Lachman, originally from Germany, visited Stewart Island – on New Zealand’s southern extremity – as a backpacker 20 years ago and never left. The weatherboard bach has been fully modernized, yet some original features remain – guests have to light a fire for hot water – but Lachman says visitors like the rustic do-it-yourself aspects. They also enjoy how dark it is when night falls, which is great for stargazing and seeing the Southern Cross.
