• Seeing the Wildlife that the 3 parks had to offer, all 3 parks have different terrain as a backdrop for photography, but especially seeing Tigers, Leopards and Wild Dogs were all a bonus as their is no guarantee of seeing these species, unlike many of the others.
• Joining a Young Priests precession along the road, was a by chance moments as we were only on the road at that time due to our train being delayed. Every Cloud has a silver lining.
• Seeing the amazing Architecture, especially the Taj Mahal at both Sunset and Sunrise and the old forts situated within some of the parks.
April is a good month to travel in for Wildlife sightings although the parks get very dusty (I saw 12 different tigers, 3 Leopards, a pack of Wild Dogs on 2 occasion, along with Crocodiles, Monkeys, Wildbore, Gaur, Indian Cows, some Mongooses, loads of different Deer species and hundreds of different birds, plus Lizards, Turtles and huge Butterfly's. But I didn't get to see a Sloth beer up close, I was to slow, but some of the group did.
The temperature was rising day by day and is manageable if you like it hot, but you can't stay under the midday Sun for to long. If taking camera equipment take either a dust cover or a light coloured T-Shirt to cover and protect Camera/Lenses from the Sun and Dust and also a beanbag to rest the camera when not shooting by free hand.
If you are considering taking a camera a 100-400mm lens is a good balance for the wildlife, for birds something with more range 600-800 may be better although my 100-400mm has got excellent shoots when the birds were relatively close. I would also recommend a 18+mm for architecture.
About £500-600 should cover you for the Trip + extra drives + the odd gift (based on 70 Rupees to £1).
Don't forget to take a decent pair of Binoculars
