WILDLIFE IN INDIA

From steamy tropical jungles to rolling grasslands and the high Himalayas , India is home to many National Parks that have successfully preserved the Indian flora and fauna. Most of the Wild Life Reserves in India started off as game parks for the hunting pleasure of the Raj Officials. Ironically, these are the only areas, which still boast of well-preserved forests and wildlife.

A splendid diversity of wild animals, birds and exotic plants can be enjoyed and captured on film in India 's numerous National Parks. A comprehensive list of the National Parks and the wild life found in them is given below. All the National Parks have good game viewing facilities that range from Machans and Jungle roads to the traditional mode of viewing on Elephant Back. Accommodation may be in Jungle Lodges or properties that date back to the days of the British Raj.
