India Family Adventure Holidays

From desert to jungle, from mountains to iridescent rice paddies, India has everything, including a multitude of wildlife from tigers to elephants. There is history and discoveries to be found everywhere. New sights, tastes and experiences are all around. For those seeking education and adventure, India has much to offer the family. Yes there is poverty, but also there are great sights and beauty to be seen, not only in the great temples and palaces but in the everyday as well. Ladies glide past in their beautiful saris and jewellery, and the markets brim with piles of exotic fruit and vegetables.

"What an amazing, mind expanding trip! We won't forget it in hurry. Early morning fishing off the converted rice barge with the sun coming up was a highlight." The Davies Family
