About this trip

India has become world renowned for it’s leadership in tiger conservation. In 1900 there were over 100,000 tigers on earth. Today there are less than 4,000. Spread out across Southeast Asia and Russia the world’s remaining tigers are on the brink of extinction throughout most of their range. But not in India. For several decades the Indian government, citizens, and conservation groups have battled hard to bring the tiger back to healthy numbers. Tamandua is proud to work with the Indian conservation community and Tiger Reserve network because supporting the wildlife-tourism industry means ensuring the long-term viability of tiger habitat. And by protecting the iconic tiger, we protect myriad other species and life forms and countless acres of forest and wild land. That’s why they call tiger’s an umbrella species — if you can protect them, you can protect the birds, the deer, and the rest of the forest. During this week with expert Naturalists as your guides, you’ll have access to the stunning landscape of the Indian wild, and become a part of protecting some of the most stunning species on our planet. 

Accommodations and Setting

The group will be staying at the Singinawa Jungle Lodge, located in forested land next to the Kanha Tiger Reserve. This trip will be a perfect mix of luxurious accommodations and amenities and an incredible wildlife reserve. 


The accommodations have large bedrooms, private verandas, en-suite bathrooms, mini bars, air conditioning, and WiFi. There is a swimming pool on the property to relax and cool off during your free time. 


There is a huge dining area located at the lodge featuring multiple dining options and a bar where guests are served with a variety of continental and Indian cuisine, fresh and home cooked food. The kitchen uses the fresh organic produce from its farms to give guests authentic and delicious meals.

This was a trip of a lifetime! Paul and the team did an extraordinary job showing us the Amazon and how important it is to continue their conservation efforts. I can’t wait to go back and see it and do it all over again! The cuisine cooked up by Chef Roy was second to none and the accommodations gave me that true jungle experience. I highly recommend this trip and Tamandua expeditions.
In all respects the expedition exeeded all my expectation. All was well prepared, Holly and JJ had flawless the entire expedition. Despite their youth, the participants were experienced. Inspite of extreme situations, no crisis situations have occured. Mybe one hint. All participants come to see and catch a bigg anaconda spicies which, after telling in these locations, cannot be. In this area would probably be something done. Sasa
This was one of my favorite trips I’ve ever been on. I learned so much about the jungle, conservation and myself, I can’t wait to be a part of another trip like this. Thank you Tamandua!
