Combine the heady thrills of an elephant safari, with the history and tea-story of colonial India
Is it possible to be alone in a crowd? Not if that crowd is part of the seething, multi-coloured mass that boils around the streets and flower markets of Calcutta. Yet strolling through Calcutta’s botanical gardens is a serene experience. Going on an elephant safari in Kaziranga National Park, or taking tea in a plantation high in the foothills of the Himalayas will present you with yet more perspectives on India.
In fact, the Colonial North East India tour is purpose-designed to show you India’s culture, its ancient temples and palaces, as well as revealing the history of the British Raj.
