Day 2
Agra - Katni

Agra - Katni

No stay in Agra would of course be complete without a visit to the beautiful white marble Taj Mahal, built by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631. The Taj is serenely beautiful and never fails to amaze a first-time visitor; the white marble exterior changes colour according to the position of the sun during the day. During the morning we will visit this magnificent monument and also visit the imposing Red Fort of Akbar, third of the Moghul Emperors, whose mighty sandstone walls enclose the beautiful white marble Pearl Mosque and the palaces, halls, courtyards and fountains of his sons and successors, Jehangir and Shah Jahan. It is here that the latter spent his last years, imprisoned by his own son Aurangzeb. This afternoon is left free for individual sightseeing. In the evening you'll catch the overnight train to Katni.

Bhandavgarh N.P.

Bhandavgarh N.P.

At only 437 sq. km. Bandhavgarh is one of the smaller and least-visited National Parks and enjoys an impressive setting with a stunning cliff-top fort overlooking grasslands, birch forests and bamboo that provide cover for the plentiful indigenous wildlife. In common with many other parks, Bandhavgarh is home to a wide variety of game including leopard, sloth bear, gaur, sambar, chital, wild pig and of course tiger. The healthy population of approximately 60-70 animals means that this Park has the highest tiger density of any of India's reserves. Game drives in Bandhavgarh are undertaken by jeep. Aside from the game and the tigers, the Park also plays host to up to 150 species of birds including many on the migratory trail, such as the Steepe Eagle. During your stay in this beautiful rugged National Park you will enjoy eight games drives by jeep. You will also visit the Exodus Bhandavgarh School Project during our stay.
