The Best Tips For A Tiger Safari In India

As opposed to a luxury travel that is filled with the perks of indulgence and plenty of sightseeing of some of the most scenic destinations, a tiger safari is the one which pushes you to the limits. Nothing beats the sheer amount of adrenaline and adventurous vibes of seeing the wild cat parrying around in its own habitat. What adds to the thrill is the proximity with which the tiger is visible. It comes as no surprise that the safari travel is not meant for the faint hearted! So you had better prepare for the safari with these tips to enjoy the adventure even more:luxury travel

  1. A stroke of luck- Yes, it is true. The tiger safari can be a matter of fortune as far as spotting them is concerned. That being said, the natural reserves and parks offer the most natural habitat and lots of open spaces to the tigers. So you do have more chances to spot them. Certain parks like Kanha National Park offer better chances due to the dry deciduous forests and the frequency of jeeps visiting the park leads to the usually shy Tiger becoming acclimatized to the safari vehicles.
  2. The best time for tiger safari- Most National Parks in India are open from October to June, and remain closed for tourists due to the monsoon rains from July through September. The scenario at National Parks in India are vary across seasons and are enjoyable in their own way:
  • October & November : The jungle is beautiful, dense and green. Temperatures are near perfectly pleasant.
  • December – February : The picturesque Winters in the Indian with golden light shimmering through the morning mist. Temperatures can fall to near 0 °C, hence one must come prepared with layers of clothes.
  • March – June : The dry Indian Summers make for increased chances of seeing tigers as they spend their time in or around the various water bodies of the jungle, to quench their thirst or wait discretely as other prey animals such as deer and monkeys venture here. One also has the opportunity of seeing the tiger sitting in the water, to stave off the heat which is too much for their large carnivorous selves.
  1. Planning your safari- In India, due to limited availability of safari permits it is very important to ensure that there will be a safari permit before you confirm your safari trip to India. Ideally, one must confirm all details 4 months before travelling at the very latest.

How to Overcome Common Travel Worries?

No matter how excited you get about holidays, it’s very common to have worries before (and during) any vacation. This is because you’re heading off to an unfamiliar location, and could face lots of challenges, irrespective of whether you’re holidaying in a far-flung destination or somewhere closer to home.

Tips on overcoming some of the most common travel worries include:

 

  1. Stay calm and focus on the travel benefits

Instead of constantly chewing over the worries you have about your holiday, try to steer your mind towards the benefits. For example, the potential adventures and experiences you’ll have while away, and the opportunities to interact with individuals from different cultures. If you’re planning an adventure holiday, research all the skills you’ll need to learn and discover more about the different activities you’ll embark upon.

  1. Worries about falling ill before the trip

It’s common to worry about illness or emergencies that could mean you need to cancel your trip, but one of the best ways to overcome this is to arrange comprehensive travel insurance at the time of booking. Cancellation worries are the major concern of most travellers, but even if the worst does happen there’s no reason to be worried about losing money. Check the small print of your insurance to make sure cancellation is covered.

According to a survey, 21% of all travellers are worried about airport delays and flight cancellations before their trip. Again, this kind of issue can be easily solved if you plan in advance and put insurance in place. Other common airport worries include overcrowding and concerns about flying with kids, and one of the best ways to solve these concerns is to book out of season any time you plan to travel overseas.

  1. Collapse of holiday firm

The recent collapse of Thomas Cook and other travel and flight providers have illustrated just how fragile the holiday market is today. They also show that simply opting for the travel guarantees from providers and checking they are part of the ABTA scheme is not enough. When Thomas Cook collapsed, thousands of holidaymakers were stranded overseas, including many people who had booked special breaks, such as weddings. Although this is an unlikely scenario, it’s still worth double-checking that your insurance covers disasters like these.

  1. Plan ways to stay safe throughout your vacation

Lots of travellers worry about the safety aspects of trips, and it’s important to ensure high levels of safety, wherever possible. Whether you’re travelling for work or leisure purposes, some of the things to put in place include:

 

Researching your travel destination in advance, so you know all the areas where crime and scams are more common.

  • Find out about the local culture and acceptable behaviours – so that you don’t risk offending any of the locals you meet or breaking any laws.
  • Pack copies of all essential documentation, such as passports, bank and credit cards, and driving documents. This will ease your mind if theft should happen, and make it easier to access the help needed. Of course, if there is a safe available at your accommodation, it’s always a good idea to keep valuables and important documents securely inside.
  • Being robbed while on holiday is one of the most common travel worries, yet putting good travel insurance in place before any holiday and making contingency plans beforehand will help you overcome these concerns. One of the difficulties associated with claiming for cash and valuables that are stolen while you’re away is proving what you had with you, so taking photographs before you head off on holiday can solve this problem.
  • Staying vigilant while visiting unfamiliar locations is also an important safety measure. Listening to music on headphones or continually brandishing your expensive smartphone can increase risks of opportunistic crimes against you, and also divert your attention when it could be most needed
  • Finally, take time to check out official websites for government travel tips prior to any trip overseas.

Travelling can be an anxiety-inducing experience for all of us, but with the right preparation and research you’ll feel far more relaxed before your next trip. Enjoy!

Fact And Myths About Millennial Travelers

Aha! The millennial generation! Born in between 1981 and 2001, it is one of a kind as far as the entire fabric of travelers is concerned. They are a young lot in all the luxury travels which likes to travel the maverick way. But it is the same reason for which they are labeled as self-centered, social media obsessed, obnoxious pricks! What if we tell you that there is more than it meets the eye? For us, as Luxury travel operators in Gurgaon know the major facts and myths about them. Read on to find out more.

  1. Millennial do not like to travel with random people- Getting to travel with friends and family or even choosing to go is one thing but going with random people is another. And traveling solo has just gone easy thanks to the Luxury travel operators in Gurgaon who are customizing their travel itinerary for such travelers. Traveling budget, a teething problem in such tour is also taken care of so the millennial travelers get to travel across the world without bounds. Even the youngest of the pack in a millennial tour is at ease since he/she knows that they are here to gather perspective from people who may not be of the same age but are definitely intertwined with the same interests.

  1. Millennial are traveling to gain social media fame (and so do others) – This is neither a myth nor a fact but we would like to take a middle ground. It does turn out to be true in many surveys across the world that the first amenity which the millennial look for in hotel or other accommodation facility is uninterrupted WiFi service. And it is for obvious reason; to post photos in their best attire and shape in the backdrop of a tourist place or an historical architecture. But that is certainly not something which should be looked with disdain. Millennial are known to be social media influencers and some of them do have an envious number of followers in their social media handles. This creates the right channel for a two-way conversation instead of a one-way information dump, a fact that we immensely respect!
  2. Millennial are not irresponsible travelers- If they are irresponsible travelers, we wonder what category a traveler group would fall to when they travel in packs with annoyingly loud kids, a member who rushes to the buffet to bag more food than they could eat or simply a family who tries to steal hotel pleasantries that are prohibited. On the contrary, the millennial travelers have proven themselves as seekers of knowledge and better conversation makers since they are always out in the open to explore the deep roots of a culture. That is totally a different scenario when compare to a snobby family wanting transport vehicle to see places every mile or so!

To conclude, the very definition of travel is different to each person. More than the materialistic pleasures, it is a good idea to go with the flow of heart’s following and indulge in one thing you ache for. Just like the millennial do!

Traveling Places: Your Eventful Journey In Life

Out of many things that we do in our life, traveling on a vacation is largely seen as a way out of monotony or maybe coming together with family. And rightly so; after all the luxury travel is an escape from the daily toils of life, and perhaps the reality. But that is not all. Traveling is also an expression of the barrage of emotions that a lot of people hold back. For many years, traveling has shown to be a celebration. Let us find out more reasons that makes traveling absolutely worthwhile.

Luxury Tour

  1. It sharpens your mind- The biggest bane of a to-and-fro lifestyle is that it pushes you to the point that your mindset runs on autopilot. Therefore, once you set out on a journey the new environment engages a dormant part of your mind and gets those synapses firing again. This means you are on your own to navigate through the places that are unknown to you, get to learn foreign languages, get into new activities and most importantly make quick decisions. The very visit to a foreign land would also spike up your mind to deal with the new sights, sounds, and places will require mental processing and filing. This in turn, would make you sharper than ever for better organizing and sprucing up your daily routine.
  2. Improving social communication- Yes, we all have been there. The inability to communicate. Social communication shoots up when you go to the areas where your native language is not widely used. This enables you to communicate better with other people. Brushing up your knowledge on the most commonly used phrases or questions tourists ask can help you reach out to and relate better with the locals.
  3. It helps you build a perspective- Once again being exposed to new cultures and people will greatly shift your paradigm and create a healthier perspective once you return home. Seeing different social classes and people from variety of walks of life is able to generate compassion and gratitude, more blessed and content. The luxury travel also lets you realize how privileged a person you are even when compare to co-travelers who fall into the category what is known as backpackers in popular culture. Therefore, such perspective will or rather should serve as a wake-up call for a vast majority of people who are perhaps a little resentful with their lives.Luxury Travels
  4. Helps to know one’s self better- While traveling, you might find yourself stuck in situations you won’t normally experience in your daily life. This is the best period to understand and prepare yourself on how you react to such circumstances, preparing you for future similar situations. Although traveling offers many benefits, you must not undermine the importance of planning your luxury tour carefully with luxury tour operators in Gurgaon. With a well chalked out plan, you can venture out to a place of your dreams and enjoy to the full.

But never forget that the start of this journey has a bigger purpose than hanging out and taking tons of selfies. Your ultimate goal is to unleash your true self buried under anxiety.
