Tigers are one of the most preserved treasures of the world. Once believed to be endangered in many countries of the world, with the help of the various animal conservation groups and the government of the countries, tigers are now thriving in safe habitat and in numbers aplenty.

These safaris can offer magnificent tiger spotting and if you are lucky, even a tiger in its primal, natural hunting mode. Tiger safaris in India are extremely popular and attract a heavy number of tourists every year.
India and Tigers
India is a land of varied nature. Covered with snow in the north, jungles across the country, a desert in the west, and oceans covering the peninsula. There are sights unmatched in the land of fantasy that is India. One of the most attractive features of India is in fact the Indian Jungles and forests which are spread across the country ranging from north to south.
Most of these forests are protected and conserved by the authorities of the forests and the local government as they provide habitat to some endangered and preserved flora and fauna, including the Indian breeds of the Tiger.
Tigers are protected under the Project Tiger Act in partnership with the Forest and Wildlife conservation authorities. The tourism industry has taken over the promotion of these tigers by offering magnificent sightings of tigers in well-planned and thoroughly executed Tiger safari journeys through these forests.
