The roads are generally pretty good, but local traffic and/or road damage after the monsoon can sometimes slow us down. We travel mainly on comparatively quiet roads for at least half of the journey.
The tour is not overly demanding, but some of the days can be busy, where travelling is combined with sightseeing. Lots of sightseeing is combined with the chance to explore on your own two feet. In Ranthambore National Park tiger spotting is from a large open truck called a 'canter'. Longer distances are covered by private bus. Although the travelling is not demanding, it is a busy itinerary; this, together with the overwhelming effect of some of the crowded cities, can make the trip a little tiring. At certain times of the year it will be hot. There are some long drives, mainly on reasonable roads, but there is plenty of time for sightseeing, exploring or simply watch the world go by in this fascinating region of India.
Longer travelling days should take around six to seven hours but delays are possible and journey times can increase. At times it can be quite hot and dusty (except December) and the bustle of the Indian cities can be tiring.
This trip does involve a lot of time on the road; however, this gives you the perfect opportunity to see the diversity of one of India's most colourful states!
Normal group size and age
Normally 7 to 16, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Requires a spirit of adventure and some fitness, as the trip may involve more activities or longer journeys.
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
